The outer fabric, or skin of this tent, is a one-piece, preformed body manufactured from 9.85 or 12.29 ounce duck material which is fire, water, weather, and mildew resistant. These tents are designed for use in tropical or temperate zones, but with the installation of a liner and/or stove, may be used effectively in colder climates. The liner is also effective in reducing heat from midsummer sun. Liners are not normally issued with the tent, but are available through the supply system.
