Kelty Yellowstone 8 Tent: 8-Person 3-Season

Product Details

Take the whole family camping this summer with the Kelty Yellowstone 8 Tent. With an eight-person capacity, this simple to set up three-season tent has room for the whole fam-damly. Even Grandma and Grandpa will fit in this monster tent, though between Gram's snoring and Grandpa's gas, that might be a bad idea. Color coded clip and fly connections make set up a cinch, and with just two poles, you won't be fumbling around trying to set this tent up the first time you take it out. Fully taped seams prevent water from working through while you sleep, and a large, D-shaped door makes getting in and out of the tent easy. Internal gear lofts, internal pockets, and a tablet compatible sleeve make storing everyone's essentials simple, so you don't wake up with your face buried in Junior's socks.

Large Tents Checklist

Cabin vs. Large Dome Tent. What to choose? Cabin tents tend to be larger and usually have one or more "rooms." However, large dome tents are not as heavy or bulky, and usually are easier to setup. If you do NOT need the extra rooms, I'd suggest considering a large dome tent.
Waterproof? Any tent worth's it's name better be waterproof on the bottom AND have a waterproof rain-fly. Why? Sleep in it once during the rain and you won't need to ask.
Many Cabin Tents Are NOT Freestanding. Unlike large dome tents, many cabin tents require many stakes and lots of rope to erect. Keep this in mind when shoppng around for one. Most tents shown on this site, however, are freestanding.
How Tall? If you are going to get a big tent, it makes little sense to get one that is "squat." Thus, for big tents, it's always better to get a tent that is comfortable...and comfortable means one that is tall enough to stand fully erect in.
