lets discuss your tent briefly.is it a tarp bottom? like that blue plastic with grommet holes?
does the rain fly reach almost to the ground? is it a bit heavier material than the rest of the tent.
thin almost slimy rubber coating on inside? no, you say.
i say junk, first heavy sideways rain, you'll see what i mean.
is it a semi-tall dome? seriously suck in high wind.
geodesic and other shapes are much better.
please don't tell me the bug out tent your going to trust has heavy fiberglass poles and not ones made out of aluminum tubing.
once again, junk!
there's something about wearing the same stuff as the guys who are chasing you
Whatever gave you the idea that the folk who are chasing you will all be in camo, even if they are soldiers?

I will definitely not be shooting at you, and If im shouting anything, it will most likely be something to the effect of "I just wanna talk to you!" (Which for some unfathomable reason always seems to come across as threatening....)
*eta* As for attire, assuming im not just getting off duty for the day when tshtf, most likely something in subdued, darker, solid colors. Good greens and browns.
"I just wanna talk to you!"
