ALPS Mountaineering Taurus 2-Person
Dome-style 2-person tent with full-coverage fly
Don't forget to add a 2-Person Floor Saver for extra protection.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars
2 years of use and still going strong.

I’ve had my Taurus in all types of conditions. It has never failed me. I typically use it 8-9 times a year camping with the Scouts. I’ve loaned it to other scout leaders and they’ve all been very happy with the ease of set up and uses. I chose a two man for additional room and it has been a perfect fit.

Great Tent!

My husband and I bought this tent 3 years ago as a back up tent. This tent proved itself on our first outing and we've been using it as our primary tent ever since. We do a lot of camping because of Scouting and you just can't go wrong with this purchase!
