Sturdily built for 4 people (or 3 and a dog), the freestanding ALPS Mountaineering Meramac 4 Tent provides your family a home away from home in the campground.
The Alps Meramac 4 is a 4 person Dome tent with 2 doors and 2 windows. The Polyester Fly will keep you snug and secure. The Shockcorded Fiberglass frame is durable and easy and fast to use because it connects to the tent with all clips. All the main Fly and Floor seams are Factory sealed so you can use it right out of the bag. Both Windows have Storm Flaps so you can close them in inclement weather. And they are also Hooded by the Fly so you can keep them open, even in rain, for excellent ventilation. Having 2 doors is convenient and useful. Includes Carry bags, a Gear Loft, Stakes and Guy Ropes.Sleeps 4Factory Sealed fly and floor seamsWindow in each door - each has Storm Flaps (closable)2 doors - easy entry and exitHooded Windows - allow ventilation even in rainShockcorded Fiberglass frame - is strong, durable, fast and easy to useAll clip assembly is simple to set up or take downRidge Pole creates a protected covering over the Door Windows - can be open, even in rain, for excellent ventilationFreestanding design is easy to set upLots of mesh for good ventilationMesh Storage Pockets to keep loose stuff organized in the tentSide Mesh Panels create even more ventilationExtra Large #8 Zippers on Door and Vestibule are sturdy and easy to gripPost and grommet pole/tent connectionExternal Guy Out Loops - keep the tent stable in windGear Loft included to stash stuff out of the wayStorm Flap protects Door zippers from water leakageAll carry bags, stakes includedImport
The Meramac series tents are all free standing 2-pole designs with shock corded fiberglass or aluminum ferrules. The ferrules are the "connectors" that hold the poles together and use aluminum, rather than steel, because aluminum can never rust. The fiberglass poles are also normally one size larger than normal to offer you a sturdier, stronger tent. ALps uses lightweight but strong polyester fabrics. The walls are uncoated so the tent can "breathe" under the urethane coated fly. The fly uses a pole in the top, which gives you an awning over each door for excellent rain protection. The fly is full length on the sides, not 3/4 length like some others, for better weather protection. The tents even have factory sealed seams on the floor and fly for maximum water repellency. Entry and exit are enhanced with 2 doors, which means if you have to get out at night, you don't need to crawl over the others to get to the only door. The second door is also nice for extra ventilation in hot, muggy weather. The door zippers are a #8, which is one size larger than most, for extra durability. Mesh storage pockets and a gear loft are included to help you keep your gear organized.
