ALPS Mountaineering Taurus 4-Person Outfitter
The Taurus Outfitter Series has 2 key upgrades: oversized #10 door zippers and a heavy duty polyester 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 polyester floor material, will greatly increase the durability of your tent.

For poles, we use aircraft alloy 7000 series aluminum that are 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 weatherproofness. 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 elastic cord. Mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improve star gazing.

Best Tent I Have Ever Owned

I have had this tent since 2012. Here it is, 2020 and it's almost in perfect shape still. It has one small tear that was totally my fault which was fixed using some tent fixing tape years ago. I love this tent. LOVE it. It has been through pouring rain without a drip coming in due to the full fly. It's been through a lot of Scouting trips over the years! The poles are hefty enough to where I don't worry about them breaking. The tent goes up easily even when I am setting it up alone, which is usually the case. If I ever have to get a new tent, I will be buying another one of please don't ever stop making it. Thanks for a GREAT product!

Solid Tent for Scouts - Taurus-4 Outfitter

I purchased four of these for our Boy Scout Troop and am happy!

Great - The tent is simple to set up which is a plus for the younger scouts. I showed how to do one tent and they boys had an easy time setting up the others.

Great - I also like the full rainfly which will keep them dry if properly secured with lanyards. I would definitely go with this sturdier tent for a scout troop that will see regular use.

Needs Improvement - Only thing I would change is that the stuff sack is too small and it is nearly impossible for younger boys to get the tent back in it. Much more difficult if the tent is wet! We will probably search for some new stuff sacks to use.

As the names says, great for outfiitters

We run a tripping program at a school with over 1250 participant days in our tents each year. The Taurus Outfitter is our go to tent.
