Marmot Limestone 4 4-Person 3-Season Tent
Mashing two adults, two children, and a dog into a regular four-person tent could be called "quality family time", or it could be called "Timmy and Sally make each other cry, Sparkles pees on a sleeping bag, and Mom and Dad vow never to take camping trip ever again." If a standard four-person's a little cramped, try the Marmot Limestone 4 Four-Person Three-Season Tent, which uses four DAC aluminum poles and color-coded clips and sleeves to pitch quickly, stand solidly, and provide plenty of room for the whole family to sleep without making each other miserable. Two of the poles run horizontally for tons of headroom, and the mesh body lets plenty of air in so things don't get too smelly or feel too stuffy. Although it's a family shelter, the Limestone is still built with all the ruggedness you'd expect of a Marmot tent. The fly is made of polyester ripstop, the walls and floor of tough polyester and nylon, and all the seams are fully taped to keep water from getting you and your gear soggy. The fly's vented, too, to keep air moving even if it's rainy, and the internal pockets help the whole gang stay (somewhat) organized. It's been made with other thoughtful details, too, like an Arona blue interior to simulate blue sky, jingle-free nylon zipper pulls, and reflective guy-out points so you don't trip and bring the whole tent down in the dark. The family will love you for that.

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
||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
||Many Cabin Tents Are NOT Freestanding. Unlike
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.
