Protex Polyester 150 Denier, 5000mm
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.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.

Q Is this only available in herbal? My tent is blue!
A Sorry the item is for the previous year model, and is discontinued, so will not be a match to your Blue tent.

Q Can this be used to make my tent waterproof again?
A Yes it will add a layer of waterproofing. However, Fabsil would be the best solution to re-proofing your tent. And a shield should not be used in windy weather conditions.
