Dura Tent on Shark Tank
Dura-Tent Outdoor Table Top is a small tent designed specifically for your food when outdoors. Leaving food on the picnic table when out camping or on a picnic has been common place for as long as I can remember. As the Bar-B-Que is grilling away you spread all the condiments, chips and potato salad conveniently around the picnic table for easy access. No big deal, right? We'll not according to Dan Rothwell, the owner and inventor of the Dura Tent.
We have enough outdoor camping equipment to start a sporting goods store but is the Dura Tent something that I would consider adding to our collection and then actually using it? My thinking was first a little narrow in the benefit's of having a Dura Tent handy in some circumstances. I also believe that Dan's selling point's (from the videos anyway) on focusing mainly as a deterrent to flies may also be a little narrow. What about ant's for instance? Have you ever been camping close to ant's when they come marching in rows of hundreds at a time? That's one time I really wish we had something to protect what was on the picnic table. There was no stopping them and all we could do is move the food out of their way until they finally retreated. Could the Dura Tent of held off such an invasion of ant's? It would make one heck of a promotional video if it could.
