User Review: ALPS Mountaineering Taurus 5 OF Outfitter
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 250-ish
Went moose hunting outside Fairbanks, AK. Used large, cheap SAMs club tent. Hugh mistake, the top iis all mesh, with small rain fly, wind blew all heat out, Dad from lower 48 froze, got a little snow, tent poles broke, threw what was left of tent in fire.
Bought Taurus OF 5. Love that the vents have covers that zip up if you want to retain heat, love the thicker than normal rain fly, goes all he way to ground, also rain fly door can be propped up with sticks for large shaded area if weather is nice.
- Vents with covers that zip in if needed
- Large thick rain fly covers entire tent
- Made with high quality thicker material, larger zippers.
- ZERO cons, other than kids lost mine
Best tent I have ever used. Later used on 12 day fly in moose hunt, rained a lot, everything stayed dry in tent. Deployed for a year, kids lost tent, looking for another to buy!
