The Merit ZF will accommodate the provided cots, along with ample room for gear.  The base size (9’ x 9’6) will maximize the allotted 9’ x 9’6 area.  This is a special make-up tent designed exclusively for Jamboree 2023. It has been designed to fit the parameters of Jamboree to the best of our ability and is the top tent that we’d recommend! The ZF model has bigger #10 zippers and a thicker oxford floor.
