Alps Mountaineering Taurus 2 Freestanding Tent

Alps Mountaineering Taurus 2 Freestanding Tent

ALPS Tents are known for offering great weather protection with full coverage flys and “more than normal” waterproof coating. Larger zippers, combined with strong fabrics and extra reinforcement sewing, make them extra durable. And of course, like all other ALPS products, they’re also very affordable. So 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 2, which is one of ALPS best-selling tent, 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 each door has 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 keep you dry and to give you the best weather protection. Plus you have the choice between fiberglass or lighter weight aluminum poles.

If you're interested in an even heavier oxford floor and larger #10 zippers, you can always check out the Taurus Outfitter Series as another option.
