Fortress V2 Detailed Features
LAYOUT | The Fortress features our most popular tent layout. Rooms at one end of the tent offer privacy and can be divided in two by attaching the included curtain. Once divided, each room has its own internal door, rear window and 3-way side window. The sides of the main living area can be fully opened to create another entry/exit or to allow for maximum airflow. The front wall of the central living area completely zips open creating a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor living areas of the tent.
VENTILATION | The Fortress is constructed from durable and breathable Poly Cotton Canvas. This canvas creates an environment that is cooler during the day and warmer at night than polyester fabrics. To further increase air circulation throughout your tent, the Fortress features a large number of ventilation options. All windows in the tent can be opened from the inside, allowing complete control over privacy and ventilation from within the tent. The rear bedroom window features gusseted window covers that allow for protected airflow in any weather when guyed out.

Fortress V2 Additional Info
• Ensure guy ropes are out at all times during use.
• Never pack your tent away wet. If you must take your tent down when wet, ensure that it is dried completely as soon as possible to prevent mildew from forming.
• If mildew does form on your tent, wash off with warm water and a soft brush to prevent further growth, do not use soap or detergents.
• Do not use an open flame inside your tent. The fabric has been treated with a fire retardant but is in no way fire-proof.
• It is important that lower vents are opened at all times to reduce condensation. During humid or damp conditions, it is recommended that the waterproof door covers are opened to expose the mesh layer, enabling additional airflow throughout your tent.
• Do not use open-cell foam mats directly on the tent floor. This can cause condensation between the mat and floor and if not dried out, can lead to mildew from forming.
