What is the inner tent ceiling made of?  What makes it breathable?  Will it be comfortable when the weather is hot and muggy?

Asked by: Mcamper
The canopy and rainfly of this tent is made from a 68-denier polyester. This tent can be used in hot/muggy conditions. We recommend opening the doors and windows to allow for maximum ventilation.

Asked by: mcdreamy90
