5 Man Tent Alps Mountaineering Meramac 5 Sage/Rust
The 5 Man Tent Alps Mountaineering Meramac 5 Sage/Rust series tents are all free standing 2-pole designs with shock corded fiberglass or aluminum ferrules. The ferrules are the “connectors” that hold the poles together and Alps uses aluminum, rather than steel, because aluminum can never rust. The fiberglass poles are also normally one size larger than normal to offer you a sturdier, stronger tent. Lightweight but strong polyester fabrics are used. The walls are uncoated so the tent can “breathe” under the urethane coated fly. The fly uses a pole in the top, which gives you an awning over each door for excellent rain protection. Alps’ fly is full length on the sides, not 3/4 length like some others, for better weather protection. The factory seals the seams on the floor and fly for maximum water repellency. Entry and exit are enhanced with 2 doors, which means if you have to get out the 5 mant tent at night, you don’t need to crawl over the others to get to the only door. The second door is also nice for extra ventilation in hot, muggy weather. Alp’s door zippers are a #8, which is one size larger than most, for extra durability. Mesh storage pockets and a gear loft are included to help you keep your gear organized.
