Made from Lightweight, Durable, Ripstop Nylon with a Black Rubber Backing to Block Light from Coming In or Out (If Trying to Sleep in Daytime it is Pitch Black Inside; If its Night Time and You are Shining a Torch Inside, the Light Cannot be Seen Outside so in Theory You Aren't Detected by the Enemy)

I have used this tent system for motorcycle camping on a Sportster while touring. The needs are similar to other camping but differ in the following ways.

Sometimes at a weekend festival or rally, I'm just looking for a place to crash at night (or in the daytime). The blackout fabric coating is great when you're set up under powerful lights or wanting to sleep through a bright morning.

Having a tent also means I have a place to keep prying eyes away from my bedroll when I'm not in it. Camping wile touring, for me at least, doesn't involve a lot of cooking and hiking. It's mainly about having a rain-proof shelter to sleep in. Breakfast comes at a diner after I'm back on the road.

The hardest thing to find in a tent has been a short packaged length. This tent has very short aluminum poles so the package doesn't stick out to the sides when I am rolling.

I like it for the utility as well as the construction quality.
