An Outwell Dual Protector extends a tent’s life by reducing UV damage to the roof and acting as a barrier against contaminants like bird droppings and tree sap. It also reflects the sun's heat and keeps the tent cool if used silver side up or reversed to reveal the black surface that soaks up the sun to heat the tent. When used silver side up a broad, deep, roll-up/zip-off canopy matches the tent’s side door to create a sun porch when poled out. Upright steel poles not included. Please notice that on above photo the Dual Protector is fixed on a Denver 6.
