The North Face 2-Meter Dome - 8 Person Tent is an eight person expedition tent for base camp. The spacious floor area of 125 square feet allows for plenty of room for eating, sleeping, rest, and even sing-a-longs. The interior height reaches 81 inches at the peak, making standing a little easier, and cutting down on the neck cramps. Sorry really tall guy, the hemisphere shape can only do so much. The tent has a couple exterior windows, just in case you want to check the outside conditions without actually leaving, and a chimney vent keeps the temperature regulated (and cuts down on condensation). Extreme conditions call for an extreme tent.

"If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up." -Ferris BuellerThere are lighter big tents. There are cheaper big tents. There are almost no better big tents. TNF 2-meter is a fully flyed group expedition shelter with smokestack and multiple doors. Two people with practice are able to fully pitch the tent with rain fly in about seven minutes. One person can do it, in calm conditions on even ground, in under twenty minutes, though children may gather and laugh. This is the room you want for adventures longer than a month confined to one place. Great for Yaks or helicopters, not so much fun to carry yourself. The USDOD recommends at least 74 sf of space per person for durations longer than one week. I like about double that.
