The Como 8-Person Family Camping Tunnel Tent is a 24'x11'x7',waterproof, tunnel tent with spacious inner compartments that can serve as “rooms” or as storage space.  This is the ideal tent for families or groups of 8 people camping out on summer time.

HOW DOES IT COMPARE?

In terms of capacity, the Como 8 is similar to the Discovery, Icarus, Capricorn, Utah, Sarengo, Zeus, Oberon, Atlas + Miga, and Axis & Zulu; all of these tents belong to the 7-10 people range. The Como 8 is designed to fit in 8 people, putting it in the middle of the scale. 

In spite of its 8-person rating, this tunnel style tent is a better shelter for 5-6 people only. It has 3 rooms, one of which (the bigger one) can be utilized as a storage space to free up the living area so it can be used as a sleeping space at night. A single person can lay down comfortably with room to toll over in the 2 remaining rooms. This arrangement can easily be modified though. Just view the floor area map in the image gallery to get a better idea of the tent's layout. 

The Como 8 is an old model, a CEC classic, and has a Standard construction. Its assembly pieces are reliable and top of the line; however they are not as lightweight as the ones used in Premium construction tents. It weighs 21 kgs, placing it closer to the lower end of the scale. If transporting the tent is an issue and you need something lighter, check out the Icarus, Atlas + Miga, and the Zeus

If you do not have to worry about a particularly tall person in your group, then the Como 8 is just right for you in terms of height. It has an inner standing height of 210 cm. However, if you need more headroom, you should take a look at the Zeus and the Axis & Zulu Combo which are 250 cm and 260 cm, respectively. 

The Como 8 packs down to 70 x 34 x 34cm, that is not the smallest packed size in this range but it is on the lower end. For the smallest packed size, you would have to look at the Icarus 9 which disassembles and folds down to a mere 78 x 46 x 24cm. 

RAIN-PROOF

The rain fly is a dense yet lightweight 210T polyester taffeta and completely waterproof thanks to its 30000mm polyurethane coating. It can also stand the wear and tear due to its tight, 6-7 stitches per inch and fully -taped seams.

You can be sure that even the sleeping areas will remain dry because the tub-style ground sheets are fully-sewn with waterproof, polyethylene material. A tub-style groundsheet was upwardly-curved edges that you can attach to the rain fly, ensuring that no water comes in! 

BREATHABLE COMFORT

The tent itself is made with even lighter and breathable 190T polyester. The fabric tent doors and the rain fly are attached with mesh panels and mesh vents that allows air to come in and out thus, reducing condensation build up and still keeps the bugs out! 

EASY CLEAN

Cleaning up your sleeping and living area will be a cinch with the Como 8's tub style removable groundsheet that detaches with ease.  

CUSTOMIZE ACCORDING TO YOUR NEEDS

The inner tents are adjustable so you can add, remove or enlarge rooms, storage spaces and even standing room  according to your family's or group's needs! 

THE COMO 8 WILL KEEP ITS SHAPE

The strategically placed large PP webbing straps at the high point of each tent pole attached to the ends of the tent will ensure maximum resistance and tension, securing the shape of your tent and the dome of the rain fly so water slides down and doesn't penetrate the fabric.

Massive ABS tent stakes are also used to secure the tents firmly on the ground.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND MORE EASILY-ASSEMBLED

In addition to the sturdy and lightweight material of the tent and the rain fly, there are fewer stakes as well which brings down its total weight, makes assembly simpler and reduces your chances of losing assembly pieces critical to setting up the tent.

Setting up in low-light conditions is also made easier by the reflective 3M Scotch-lite thread Polyester interwoven guy ropes.

The tent poles are also color-coded with the tent sleeves so no more confusion with which pole goes where! 

STURDY

The Como 8 comes with Ubertech shock-corded poles that are 45% stronger than the ones made with fiberglass. And should anything go wrong within your first 12 months of use, we can ensure that your defective tent will be replaced, no questions asked.

Your Questions Answered

From Hayley:

Hi. With the Como tent that sleeps 8 with 3 rooms. The flooring in the middle, when is rains how do you prevent water [from] getting into the middle room?

Answer:

Hi Hayley, the central ground sheet in the Como tent is a tub style which means the edges are curved upwards. To prevent water ingress, ensure that the floor is properly staked down, fitted to the floor area and snug against the rain fly. If this is of concern, there are other models such as the Gobi, Icarus or Mars that have a fully sewn in tub style floor that resolves this issue. The reason people choose the Como style (BIG Family Tents) is because they can easily disassemble the tent and clean it. 

From Timette:

I am interested in the Utah or the Como tent and we were wondering if both the Utah and Como separate into Mods and if the mods connect the same in both tents.

Answer:

The tent floor is removable for easier cleaning - if you want a fully sewn in tub style floor, then check out our Premium Grade tents.

  1. Huge family tent

    Posted by on

    This is a nice huge family tent. We used it for 4 holidays/years with much pleasure. 1 large cabin (the master bedroom, enough space for 2 parents and all camping gear) en 2 smaller cabins. The living space between the cabins is large enough for a table and 4 chairs, it has lots of space. The material is of good quality.
