Product Description

If you're tired of getting soaked on your camping trips or always find yourself struggling with the zippers on your tent, switch to an ALPS Mountaineering tent that you can rely on. The Taurus is a simple 2-pole freestanding dome tent that is enhanced with 2 doors and 2 vestibules (one over each door) with extra large #8 zippers to make entering and exiting the tent hassle free. The two doors each have a mesh window, which is great for ventilation... and when it's time to put on the fly, you won't have to worry about losing your fresh air. The fly has additional vents for continued ventilation. ALPS tents each come with a factory sealed fly and floor seams to give you the best weather protection and keep you dry.

I have used this tent on three trips this year since receiving it for Christmas. All the trips have been in cold weather, even 36 degrees at night in May. The tent has kept me warm and dry. Easy to assemble and the two vestibules are great for storing gear.The fly extends out about 2-3 feet from the tent depending on your set-up. This makes it hard to reach the zipper to exit the tent. I would recommend getting some shock cord to tie to the zipper on the vestibule, it makes it easier to open the tent.

This is a great tent at a great price. I could have gotten a much more expensive tent but read some reviews and decided to give it a go. It handled rain better than I expected and is well designed. It was perfect for car camping by myself with gear. I'm very happy with this purchase.

This is a great tent, it performs well under most conditions and did not leak during a major Texas sized down pour during its first campout. It is quick to setup and light weight. This is not a big tent but what it lacks in size it makes up for in quality and performance! This tent has great rain fly that features a small vestibule.

This is a good tent by a solid company. For scouts, this could make for a good first tent for younger scouts or cubs. Using the clips for the poles, it will be easy to set up, and low cost means replacement isn't as much of an issue.

The thing missing here though, is the weight. This tent, per the ALPS website, weighs over 7 pounds fully loaded, a bit high for a backpack outing. Generally, you'd see older scouts use this as a solo tent (so 7.5 is high) or split the weight between younger smaller boys... for whom every pound counts.

the tent and tarp alone weigh 6 1/2 pounds, before adding the poles and stakes. So there's not much weight to be carved off by dropping steel stakes for titanium or aluminum.

The inclusion of a full tarp is a huge plus, with an adequate vestibule permitting gear/bag storage and shoe storage...of course, you'd put your food elsewhere.

Overall, I'd still reccomend it, especially for a new camper or for a tent to put two kids in and one adult in another on their own.

The tent is very easy to setup. Has plenty of room for 1 person with gear, or 2 persons without gear. The 2 entrances/exits are great.

I bought this tent to take with me on my Motorcycle trip to Montana, I have not taken the trip yet but when the day I received the tent I took it home and piched it up in my living room I must say it's going to be perfect so easy to picht it up 3 minutes very roomy well made and it's just the right size for my motorcycle camping adventure. I highly recommend it.
