This general purpose small tent is used by the military as a command post, fire direction center, battalion aid station, or shelter for 10 people, their clothing and their equipment. So it works great for hunting parties, scout troops, or family camping as well. If you need to accommodate a lot of people, you can attach two tents together using one of the two doors. It takes 4 people about 30 minutes to set it up or take it down.
