- It is one of the biggest family camping tents in our catalog
- the tunnel shape design maximizes area volume (including vertical head room, high enough to stand upright in)
- inner tent pitch first assembly means you can have a single layer vented shelter in the hot sunny daytime with the option of pitching the rain fly later
- fully sewn in tub style water proof floor means that the entire inner tent is a self contained area and once you zip the mesh doors close, no bugs can enter
- the inner tent is a large open space BUT leaves you the option of closing off portions of it with the removable partition walls which means you can create privacy areas eg 1 sleeping area on either side of a central common area (for storage or eating etc)
- the rain fly is coated on the inside with Polyurethane (PU) to a level of 3000mm (that's how tent waterproofness is rated) in addition to all of the seams covered with a PU tape (because sewing creates pin holes that can allow water to enter)

Full Name: Krystal Email Address: REMOVED FOR PRIVACY Company Name: Phone Number: Order Number: RMA Number: I'm sorry to be a pain but I'm having a really hard time deciding which tent is best for our needs. We are planning on camping for 10 days to two weeks with 3 small children and I need to keep my sanity. That being said here is our info:
- would like as large of a tent as possible.
- sleeping 'pods/rooms' are needed so my kids sleep and don't play with each other
- We're camping in July in Canada. Temps are max 86 degrees F. Min = 50 degrees F. The entire month received 40.9mm of rain last year.
- I don't want bugs in the tent.
- we don't want the tent to leak (assuming no hurricanes or gale force winds etc).
- On facebook I was looking at the Discovery but when I commented about leakage and bugs it was suggested I look at one of the premium tents but i think we're losing a lot of space by going to the Ajax.
My questions are: are different models of the premium tents expected to come out soon which may offer more options?
- are the premium tents the way I should be going? Ie should I stay away from the big family tents based on our camping needs and location?

|We had a trial run on putting up our Polaris on the weekend. I was wondering should we insert the poles into the ring/peg stakes attached to the fly before trying to raise the tent off the ground. Also what is the black strapping for? Also which part of the tent should we raise first because we found it hard with just two people to keep it up whilst try to stake it down. Any advice would be great. Thanks Tina|

Some models may be more aero dynamic than others such as the Ajax 12 person tent - have a look at this one, if you have questions about it, feel free to ask me

Full Name: Tom SURNAME REMOVED FOR PRIVACY Email Address: ADDRESS REMOVED FOR PRIVACY Company Name: Phone Number: Order Number: RMA Number: I am very interested in your tents and the only question I have is how well do you rate them in high winds. I spend most of my time in Colorado. Anyone who has spent anytime there can tell you, the wind storms can be unreal. Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
