Living large in the great outdoors. It’s not every day you head out alone into the back country to live off grubs and stream water. Some of us (ourselves included) have young fams that enjoy nature, but more in the car camping mode. Even if you don’t have young fams, you can appreciate a tent that allows you to pack in some of your best buds or set up base camp on your camp adventure. Keeping with that tune, we set out to look for large tents that sleep 6 or more comfortably while providing a high quality, easy to use experience.

Heimplanet Nias Cairo Camo 6 Person Tent
