HIGH QUALITY POLES & MATERIALS – The floor, tent body, mesh, and fly material are heavy-duty and made to last. The stitching is reinforced in all the places that count (corners, zippers, and friction points), and the thick tent poles are constructed with solid, high-tech aluminum that’s designed to flex instead of breaking under stress. We love to see so few plastic parts on a tent. The poles and pole seats are metal, so they won’t get brittle with prolonged sun exposure like cheap fiberglass. We have no doubts that our Habiscape Tent will last for years upon years of adventures if properly maintained.
