6 Man Tent: Dome or Tunnel

Tents are categorized as freestanding which stand up on their own and staked so they can stand upright.

Freestanding tents often come in a dome shaped design which are the strongest tents and are often used in four season tent construction. The dome shape makes sure that no snow will accumulate on part of the tent so it can be used in winter.

Many three-season tent models use a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Domed tents are much easier to setup than staked tents so you need to consider that when buying a tent. Also what kind of weather do you need the tent for?
