The "Zeltbahn" cape-tent is made of dense cotton material. Autumn colours (brown-orange) on one side and summer colours (green leaves on the ground) on another. Aluminum buttons.

Cape is used. In general, it is not visible, but here and there you can find dirt.

Whether the Zeltbahn is waterproof? 

At the beginning of the XX century, the material for tents was a dense fabric: the tighter lay the threads to each other during the creation of the fabric, the worse it passes water. It's about drops of water or rain, they flow down from the surface of the tent, and do not seep inside. But at the same time the tent does not remain dry, the threads from which the fabric is made, absorb water and become wet. That's enough to get shelter from the rain. However, every tourist in the twentieth century knew: if, being in a tent in the rain, to touch it from the inside, soon a drop will begin to gather at this point. Also with a Zeltbahn: it will get wet faster in the place where it touches the shoulders. As a result: the material of the tent can be wetted, it can be washed, but with proper handling it saves from the weather. The material of the tent does not have a coating of rubber or nano-materials, it is a product of the XX century technology, designed for reenactment! Therefore, it does not give 100% protection from water, which gives cellophane, but allows you to hide from the rain or the sun.

Camouflaged fabric "Oak A" was produced from 1941. A variation "Oak B" appeared later in 1943 and had diferences in geometry of the spots. The difference can be seen under careful study only.
