Summary: I searched for a tent for literally years before investing in one that costs so much. Then I actually found this for almost half of retail. There are two models of this tent, the Minibus 33 and the Minibus 3 , the latter, and newer version has a smaller window and MUCH smaller vestibules. Personally, I find this tent to be almost perfect.

Summary: The North Face Minibus 33 has unique pockets, a half inch over four feet of head room, and jake corners . It even has a fairly cool green color mesh surrounding it .That's where the well thought out, great design pattern ends. The first rain I tested it in lasted about three days /off and on/ (not continuous and mostly only light drizzle.

Summary: If you are in the market for a roomy 3P tent for 2 adults then you owe it to yourself to check this one out in person in the store. Like most 3-person tents this one fits 2 people comfortably but could accommodate 3 provided that you all like to cuddle. Before purchasing this tent I spent days pouring through the websites of all the top brand gear manufacturers. I was comparing weight, pack size, floor area, peak height; etc., etc.

Summary: Tent looks great and pitches easily. This would be a great tent if it doesn't get too windy. The pole clip which attaches the cross pole to one of the main poles, came apart during the wind and the rain. The entire side of the tent collapsed and the entire contents on the inside of the tent got soaked.

Summary: Though a bit high priced for the average backpacker (beginners), this is the tent that you want to have. 1. The tent itself is almost 87 percent 'net', while the fly is waterproof, breathable material. The tent is very private, yet very light, and extremely easy to put together. 2. Color- I would ask for a different color. The limish green just does not hit it off with me. But, hey , it is a tent, you won't be staring at the color all day. The ads show a blue tent -net.
