ALPS Mountaineering Taurus Outfitter Camping Tent

The ALPS Mountaineering Taurus Outfitter Tent has 2 key upgrades: oversized #10 door zippers and a heavy-duty nylon oxford floor. The #10 door zippers will give you a lifetime of smooth operation and the oxford floor, which is about twice the weight of normal nylon floor material, will greatly increase the durability of your tent. For poles, ALPS used aircraft alloy 7000 series aluminum that is strong and lightweight. Assembly is really easy with the tent clips that just snap in place over the poles. The polyester fly and oxford floor are urethane coated, with factory-sealed seams for maximum weatherproof. The 2 doors make getting in and out of the tent much easier, especially in the middle of the night when you need to take a quick "break". You also get 2 vestibules (one over each door) that you can use for extra gear storage. The vestibules also serve as automatic guy-out points when the weather gets a little nasty. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to the elastic cord. Mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improve star gazing.

Features

  • Free-standing two-pole design with 7000 series aluminum poles
  • Easy assembly with pole clips that quickly snap over the tent poles
  • 75D 185T Polyester fly resists UV damage and stays taut (fly has a vent)
  • Factory-sealed fly and floor seams give the best weather protection
  • 210D 110T Nylon Oxford floor with 1500mm coating
  • Extra-large #10 zippers on doors and vestibules
  • Easy entry and great ventilation with two doors (both with zippered mesh windows)
  • Two vestibules for gear storage and extra weather protection
  • Weatherproof fly buckles on for maximum adjustability and protection
  • Mesh panels and pop-up vents provide ventilation
  • Mesh storage pockets, gear loft, 7075 aluminum stakes, and guy ropes included

More like 3 adult tent

With 3 twin air mattress beds it's manageable, single air mattress you could stuff 4 adults with some space to put gear. I water proofed & seal seamed, Don't forget to do the underside floor. Been out in good off & on rains for a week with no leaks. I use 2 10 x 10 heavy plastic tarps one under and one inside on the floor. One can put it up by yourself, trial & error, then it gets easier, two is better. Also is great for housing extra guests during the summer.

About Browning

Browning is one of those classic, traditional companies with a long, proud history. To get to the very beginning one would have to go back to 1805, to the birth of Jonathan Browning in Tennessee. Jonathan was the father of John Moses Browning. Like many of his time he sought a life in the West, which eventually had him setting up shop as a gunmaker and gunsmith of some note in Nauvoo, Illinois and eventually brought him further West, with the Mormon pioneers to Ogden, Utah.

What Customers Are Saying

I used these for years

I've used these tents for many years, primarily in the spring, summer and fall. I had a 6 man stay up in a severe Florida coastal storm, ( I don't recommend that). They are economical, easy to put up, and sturdy in weather. In light rains, I stay dry, in a really heavy storm I get a little wet, because wind will blow it a round a bit, but it pops right back up. I prefer to replace my stakes and guy lines.
