I ended up going for the pure cotton one, link on this thread.

Just hope I made the right decision, we haven't had such a tent before and slightly worried about the upkeep of it.

Which tent are you looking at?

Having now worked out the tent we want, it comes in these 2 choices. But, we have only seen the cotton style in the flesh, so to speak. We liked the cotton, and how that felt inside, but would probably steer towards the polycotton to help with looking after it.

We're just trying to work out how it would feel. The actual fly for the polycotton is a 35% cotton /65% poly mix, whereas I have noted that the Outwell polycotton is 65% cotton/35% mix. We liked being inside the Outwell ones, so would that feel the same as these, or do the percentages make that big a difference?
