  • Excerpt: After reading some glowing reviews on this tent, I took the leap and bought a Mountain 25. Very good decision. I recently spent 4 days camping at 3,800m whilst climbing Mt Blanc. My girlfriend and I got caught up in a thumper storm which would have destroyed our old tent. Not this tent. She shook and groaned for most of the night, but held up perfectly. There were times when gusts were well over 150km/h.

  • Excerpt: Ok, so TNF are big corporate #$%@holes that make gear cheaply in China to sell to rich urban college kids. And this tent is heavy and bulky. Get over it and consider each bit of gear for what it is! Can say from experience that when you are holed up in a raging blizzard this tent is the goods. The tent does what it claims it can, and is a solid and comfortable place to survive a storm.

25 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this tent back in 2006 and have used it twice every year in snow conditions since. Positives: - very strong in the wind, especially if you use all the guide points - unlike other tent manufacturers, the tent bag actually is made to fit all the components - bright yellow colour stands out in white out conditions - Glow in dark zippers Negatives: - It's not the lightest tent around - The floor isn't very waterproof if you get the spring or autumn snow/shower sort...

I bought this tent at an REI garage sale for $99.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tent at an REI garage sale for $99. I thought to myself for that price I had better set it up. I took it out and set it up. It was like brand new. The only problem was the window on the rainfly was almost completely detached. I took it to my local North Face store and they repaired it and shipped it back to me for free (under warranty) even though I got it used. I just used it for the first time in the Colorado Rockies.

10 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I bought this tent just as the NF started to change its venue from a state-of-the-art mountain gear brand to its current incarnation as a provider of fashion for the college set. It had just come out on the market and I needed to replace my old VE-24 complete with the snow tunnel windows which I regret having to leave behind somewhere on the Arctic sea ice.

  • Excerpt: I have just started backpacking/camping again in the last year after a long hiatus. I am not much for the "car camping," preferring to put everything into the pack and hike into backcountry sites at the National Parks, or into the backwoods of the interior. I still like some of the "creature comforts" like a foldable stool and table, butane lighter, a wind-up radio and MREs. I'll hike a 45-50 lb pack in and out for 1-2 day trip.

  • Excerpt: I find it strange that some want to design this tent as a lightweight expedition tent. Hate to say it but after climbing for 35 years there are times when the "light weight" tents I have been in were not doing so well when pitched on exposed ridgelines or faces taking the full brunt of storms.

Spiritwind (guest), Trailspace.com
10 December 2008
  • Excerpt: When I was shopping for a four season backpacking tent I read every review of every tent I could find. There are a lot of reviews for the Mountain 25 and almost all of them say the same thing. This tent is all around SOLID! Weighing in at a hefty 9+ pounds it ought to be. For use in high winds, cold and snow...this tent is amazing. It takes longer to set up than any other tent I have experience with. This isn't a bad thing though.
