The Outwell Nevada SP Dual Protector helps to extend the lifetime of the tent, by reducing the damage caused by the sun's UV rays, and acting as a barrier against contaminants such as bird poo and tree sap. Furthermore, the Dual Protector has two sides - the silver side helps to reflect the sunlight, keeping the tent far cooler on warmer days, whilst the black side retains the suns heat and keeps the tent warmer on colder days. There is also a zip-off side canopy, which can be used either side of the tent.

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
