On a side note, only Eureka Tents have over 100 years of tent making history behind them…

In 1960, Eureka’s new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was used in a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world-renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented to summit Mt. Everest only six years earlier.

In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, with more than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below -20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.

Eureka tents have also travelled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women’s Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and American woman in 1986 and 1988.

Titan Tent Setup Instructions [PDF Manual]

Note: The tent spec states that it’s a 8-person tent, it just means for 8 persons to sleep inside and with NO room for storage of your camping/hiking gears & supplies. The Titan should accommodate 6 persons comfortably if you need plenty of space for storage purposes.
