Summary: I have had this tent now for about 6 months and love it. I tried the Mountain 25 and immediately returned it after setting it up in my garage. Just too small. I like winter camping and need the extra gear room plus extra height so I can change FAST in sub zero weather. Ventilation options are great once you learn them.

Summary: After camping in the North Face VE 25 (nice tent), I decided to try out the HIM 35 from NF. This tent is such a well planned out and built tent. I am very impressed with the overall design.

Summary: Very good design and ease of use. Interior vents and mesh and glow in the dark zipper pulls. Front vestibule is like a living room, rear is a back porch. Snow flaps on vestibules keep rain and dew out. Fly only pitch with footprint. A most comfortable tent for two people and gear. Three would be cozy. I think of this as a two person and gear tent. A nice shelter. Not something to carry, it is heavy. But worth it at basecamp. More on this later.
