Why Cabela’s Deluxe Tent Cot Double – Key benefits

Cabela’s Double tent cot has been around for many years already. This is a tool that has stood the test of time. It is a very durable steel construction with 4 bar-legs, free-standing and stable on every surface.
This tool offers a full protection from elements and from bugs, and it is easy to setup in any environment. The body of the tent is 70 D, 190T nylon taffeta with a 600 D polyester floor. This is all based on a heavy-duty, powder-coated steel frame.
The rain protection implies a 75 D fly made of 190T polyester taffeta, which is with a 1500 mm waterproof-rated coating. To put this into perspective, an ordinary umbrella is in the range 400-500 mm. All seams are taped, and the fly is with patent-pending rain-gutter system which directs water off and away from zippers.
Windows and dual-track doors have No-See-Um mesh, so you will be safe from bugs and pests of any kind. The side doors on the fly are designed to converts into awnings by using the included poles and guy ropes.
You have three entrances to the tent plus one window. The zippers are heavy-duty and equipped with reflective pulls. In addition, you have a roof window to sleep under the stars.
Inside the tent, you have cup holders, and an organizer panel to keep essential items close at hand.
