The Capricorn 8-Person Family Camping Tent is a capacious tent that stands at 23'x10'x7'. It is waterproof, sturdy, and, believe us – very spacious. It can easily accommodate 8 people and still have room to move around. So if you are looking for a tent to house your entire family in comfort, then this is it.


The Capricorn 8 is similar to the Discovery, Como, Icarus, Utah, SarengoZeus, Oberon, Atlas + Miga, and Axis & Zulu; all of these tents belong to the 7-10 people range. This tent however is in the middle of the scale, designed to accommodate a maximum of 8 people.

However, the Capricorn 8 can provide better comfort for 6 people. This tunnel tent has 4 sleeping compartments that can fit in a single person each. One of these compartments can be used for storage instead to make more space in the living area, which in turn can be used as a sleeping room for 3 people at night. You can view the floor area map in the image gallery to get a better idea of how you can modify this arrangement according to your family's needs. 

The Capricorn 8 is a new design that has a Standard construction. A Standard construction tent uses quality assembly pieces however they are heavier in weight compared to the components of a Premium construction tent.  This tent is not the heaviest but it sits on the higher part of the scale with its weight of 28 kgs. If you need a lighter tent, the Como, Icarus, Atlas + Miga, Sarengo, Zeus, and Oberon might be a better match. 

It has an inner standing height of 200 cm, lower than most of the tents on this range. If you do not have any special height requirements then this should be fine. However, if there is an exceptionally tall member in your group then the Axis & Zulu Combo, or Zeus might be more suitable. 

The Capricorn 8 packs down to 97 x 32 x 29cm, placing it above the middle of the range in terms of packed size. For a tent with a smaller packed size, take a look at Icarus, Como, SarengoZeus, and Oberon.


No need to worry about those heavy showers in the summer. The Capricorn 8 has a dense 210T polyester taffeta rain fly that won't sag despite the downpour. It is coated with 3000mm polyurethane and has fully-taped seams with 6-7 stitches per inch. It is also has a UV coating for increased protection and durability. Plus with fully sewn-in polyethylene floors in the sleeping areas and a tub-style groundsheet in the living room area, you can rest easy because no water will seep in anywhere.


The inner tents are made with breathable 190T polyester. Moreover, the fabric doors have built-in mesh vents and mesh panels that will let air flow in and out of the tent. With improved air circulation, the space inside remains cool and the condensation is kept to a minimum.


What's more enjoyable than having such a large space is knowing that you can modify it according to your preference and needs. The Capricorn 8's inner tents are fully adjustable. For instance, you can split the 4-person room into two 2-person rooms. Or leave out one of the tents so you'll have a larger free-standing space.


Cleaning an enormous tent is made easy for you because the sleeping areas, rain fly and ground sheet are all removable. Just detach the part you wish to clean, dust it off or tip it over, and you're done.


The Capricorn 8's assembly pieces are top of the line. The Ubertech shock-corded poles that hold the structure up are 45% stronger than fiberglass ones. Zinc-plated steel stakes are employed to make sure the tent stays firmly rooted even in strong wind conditions(Note: The Capricorn 8 is made for summer use and is not guaranteed to withstand gale force winds or hurricanes).

Lastly, large PP webbings straps are positioned atop the tent down to the sides for maximum resistance and tension – important factors in maintaining the tent's curvature and preventing water from pooling in. The whole tent package will arrive to you with no imperfections and will deliver satisfyingly as promised. If not, we will replace it because your order comes with a 12-month warranty.


Say good-bye to guesswork and save time with this tent's color-coded sleeves. Pitching in low-light conditions is also made easy because the guy ropes are woven with reflective 3M Scotch-lite thread for increased visibility.
