The windows of the tent zip up to provide extra privacy and protection from the rain, and the seams are factory sealed to prevent leaks. The flap over the door’s edge helps keep the rain out.

The tent offers a sewn-in PE floor for extra durability. A floor sewn into the bottom of a tent is essential for two main reasons: warmth and comfort. A floorless tent may be lighter weight, but it offers little benefit. Sewn-in floors also provide an extra layer of protection from the elements, keeping you dry in wet weather and providing a measure of insulation in cold weather.
The tent’s body fabric is made of 185t poly taffeta for water and mildew-resistant finish. Poly taffeta is known for its durability and long lifespan.
The mesh fabric covering the windows is made of 68d polyester, which is extremely strong and durable. The material is also UV resistant, so it will not fade easily in the sun. Additionally, the mesh is breathable, which will help keep you cool in the summer heat.
