Description: Alps Taurus 2 Person Tent

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.

Awesome Tent
Bought this tent for a motorcycle trip from Florida to Wyoming. For two weeks every day went camping. Was an ideal tent lots of room for one person and gear. Used it in warm weather around 80°- 85 and in cold-weather 35-40 degree. And rain storms with Highwinds and this tent came through with flying colors. Very easy set up and tear down. Good ventilation and I like the windows.

How do I fold up to fit in bag?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I like to start by folding the fly section in half the long way and laying it out flat.then I fold the tent in half the same way and center it on fop of the fly.take the bag with the broken down tent poles an stakes in it and center that on the tent and fold the tent and fly from both top and bottom so the folded up tent is the same length as the tent pole the pole bag at one end of the folded tent and roll it up in the tent go slowly so the roll is tight with out trapped air caught in the tent. It shold fit in the tent bag easily. I hope this makes sense
