Are these tents for all 4-seasons?
The durable canvas and shape of these tents make them great for all seasons. Since the tents are waterproof, the rain is not a concern. Because of the shape, these 8-person tents are wind resistant in 45+ mph gusts. When it comes to snow, you will want to monitor the tent and remove any accumulations so that the center pole does not get damaged. Using a wood stove inside of the tent will help the snow melt off.

Do these tents come camp ready?
Yes! Our 8 person tents include everything you'll need, right out of the box. However you will need to bring your own hammer for the ground stakes. The floor is water proof, however we'd suggest laying down a tarp to keep the floor clean - making it easier to pack your tent away.
