Family tent fabrics , differences explained in Polyester and Terylene RipStop Cotton

Breathable Terylene RipStop Cotton (BTC RS)

- Warm temperatures, best climate inside
- Best UV resistance, robust and flexible

BTC RS is our new and unique breathable technical cotton fabric with ripstop. The 65% polyester / 35% cotton ripstop blend is the ideal balanced mix of synthetic and natural materials. The integrated 0.6mm grid prevents tearing of the fabric. BTC RS has a high color fastness, is shrink proof and extremely robust.

Ripstop Polyester (RS), Taffeta Polyester (TP) and Armatech® Polyester (AP)

- Trekking in variable and inclement weather
- Best space to weight ratio

Eureka!'s polyester family tents are targeted at families who like variation and trekking during their holidays. Next to our high quality Ripstop Polyester with StormShield coating, we have chosen the best materials and DAC’s lightweight aluminium combination poles. The most durable and lightest tent poles available.

RS/TP/AP is the best choice if you want to use your tent for trekking holidays or by camping in bad weather. It is the lightest fabric and it dries very fast. In combination with the excellent ventilation of our Polyester tents it performs very well, taking the lower price of this material into account.

Breathable Terylene Cotton (BTC)

- Warm temperatures, best climate inside
- Best UV resistance

Our breathable TC series is our breathable range of family tents. The fabric has been impregnated by a dirt- and waterrepellent fabric protector, which also protects against mildew. The different characteristics of BTC, led to the choice of DAC’s lightweight “ Press-Fit Poles”. The most durable and lightest tent poles available for family tents.

Between all modern (often superlight) pure synthetic tent fabrics, Breathable TC has that nostalgic feeling. If you look beneath the surface you may find a few good arguments for this material. It all depends how you will use your tent. Cotton swells if it gets wet and seals up in that way. Cotton also has a high UV resistance, that means if you move your basis to the south and the tent will be prone to strong sunlight, you may benefit from the advantages of it. Also, BTC tents have a better inside climate than tents made out of synthetic fabrics as they are 100% breathable.    Eureka Europe -
