Kelty Tallboy 6 Person Tent Review

Whether you are camping with a group of friends or simply want to get away for a weekend with your significant other, camping is a great way to destress and unwind from the hustle and bustle of the world. One of the most important pieces of equipment you will need for camping is, of course, a tent and not all tents are created equal. Some are small and cramped and difficult to assemble, whereas others provide tons of space and can easily be put together by a single person. This is why so many people buy oversized tents that provide storage and plenty of room for a comfortable stay in the wilderness. Just because you are roughing it in the wild doesn’t mean you need to be cramped together like sardines. If you want a spacious way to camp, look no farther than 6-person tents. These are great for those who are camping in small groups or just those who want to have plenty of space to spread out and for their stuff.
