ALPS Mountaineering Taurus 5-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.

Customer Reviews
The Taurus 5-Person Outfitter has been rated 1 time.
5.0 out of 5 stars
Great for the Scouters

We use the 4-Man Taurus FG's for the scouts and the 5-Man Taurus Outfitters for the adults. The extra height is nice for the taller adults who don't like to dress laying on the floor ;) Size is just right for a cot if you want one fore a week of summer camp, etc.
