THE DAZZLE THAT MAKES THE DAZZLE DAZZLE

HISTORY

The Dazzle pattern was first used as a type of camouflage on warships in World War I. Unlike traditional camouflage, which is meant to conceal, the Dazzle’s goal is to make it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed, and heading.

The Dazzle pattern gained the attention of Picasso, who claimed that Cubists like himself had invented it. Edward Wadsworth, who supervised the camouflaging of over 2,000 ships during the First World War, painted a series of canvases of Dazzle ships after the war, based on his wartime work. Today patterns inspired by the Dazzle are sometimes used to mask the exterior shape of test automobiles during secretive trials. 

 

WHY THE DAZZLE REV TENT?

In nature we found inspiration for the Dazzle Rev Tent in Zebra skin. There is a spirited scientific debate as to why zebra’s have such distinct black and white patterns. The most popular theories explain how in sunlight the alternating black and white (hot and cold) patterns create swirling air eddies that result in cooler temperatures, and that biting insects are repelled by the pattern because the visual confusion results in faulty depth perception.

Imagine a tent fabric that is naturally cooler and repels bugs? Real science, or merely African folklore? We make no claims but encourage you to judge for yourself. At least worth a discussion around the campfire! Be sure to report back. 

FUN FACT: A DAZZLE IS THE COLLECTIVE NOUN FOR A GROUP OF ZEBRA

 

The Dazzle is a limited edition Rev Tent. Get one before it’s too late!
