The Stanford II 800XL, 8-man tent has a mirrored, or vis a vis tent layout. The separate bedroom pods each sleep up to 4 people and provide greater privacy over a standard tent design. The Powerflex® Fibreglass poles create a strong and reliable structure and the tough Sentinel Dura fabric keeps the elements on the outside. The over-door canopy helps to keep the living area dry on wet days and large windows offer plenty of natural light. The fully sewn-in groundsheet keeps out draughts and bugs, and ventilation can be managed using the mesh doors and AirZone panels. After a full day of adventures, enjoy a longer, more peaceful sleep in the darker Midnight inner tents, designed to reduce the morning light. more info »
