About Us

Howling Moon is made in South Africa with over 40 years experience in textiles and manufacturing. We pride ourselves to be the leaders in our field and strive to be the best in the market.

 

The Base of our tent

A composite bonded structure exactly the same as our caravan side wall construction.  The composite construction comprises of a 1 mm aluminium skin on either surface which clads a composite of Pine timber and polystyrene. The construction gives us the edge over our competitors as it gives us a “super light, super strong base with insulation and thermal retention properties.

 

The Fabric

We only use the best materials with the highest specifications.  Our Polyester/ Cotton blend of fabric woven into a ripstop construction to increase tear and tensile strength. The cotton, a natural fibre, gives us superior thermal and sewing properties, while the Polyester enhances the strength of the fabric. The fabric is pigment coated, giving the end fabric, superior colour fastness to light and weathering. The coating gives the fabric its resistance to UV and heat degradation as well as making exceptionally resistant to fungal attack. Howling Moon specifies a post treatment of fluorocarbon. The coating increases the protection of the fabric to soliage and water ingress through the seams. The fluorocarbon making the fabric exceptionally slippery and promoting water run off and due to this more rapid drying and preventing wetting out of the fabric.

 

The Design of Howling Moon

Howling Moon have placed major effort into enhancing your experience and making our tents user friendly.  The large aperture windows with zip functional windows is an example of this. The side window insect screens can be zip opened to enhance the viewing while lying in your tent or make for a better photograph. The interior gauze pockets provide ample secure space for reading glasses, car keys, wallets etc.  The 70mm high density mattress used in our Rooftop Tents  and Trailer Tents are far more superior to our competitors, which is so essential in ensuring a peaceful sleep without your hip bottoming out on the base of the tent.

 

General Material

There is no compromise on this specification ensuring that there are no parts in the tent that will either rust of corrode.
