Is it coincidence that blend and bland are practically the same word?  As in, “to blend in” might as well be “to bland in”?  Seems weird, right?  And for most people, especially when it comes to camping gear, blending in with the rest is all well and good.  I think we’re all pretty familiar with the standard color options we are usually given when selecting a shelter.  But with Blop tents, blending in is not an option.  Unless maybe you’re camping at a factory that makes highlighters.  But why would you be doing that you freak?
