"Best Tent I Have Ever Used (Though Slightly Heavy)"
W Taylor, MooseJaw
2 November 2013
Summary: I have used this tent in the Sierra, the Blue Ridge, on Rainier, in Banff, CO, etc. The only thing that has gone wrong with the tent in the 11 years I have been using it is the plastic screen in the vestibule rotted out. This was due to my leaving it in my attic for storage for years when not in use. The temps ranged negatives to 120 F. The up and down caused the glue over the years to loosen, but this took at least 8 years. It is like a rock hut in the wind.
Summary: I just bough my second mountain 25 from moosejaw fore more people on my next trip. This tent is was great investment, I've had it for a year and a half, and it's definitely covered the expense,and I'm sure that ten years from now, I'll be using this same tent.

Summary: 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.
Summary: I like this tent because of the very easy set up and its size (plenty of room); the only down side - condensation (as always) this tent does not have very good ventilation so expect water in the morning.
Summary: Make me look like a pro!I had the MH trang and now this one, and I love them boththis one it has a better rooftop, easier to adjust. The slleve system to put the poles is not very confortable, but it looks strongerO bought the footprint too, but floor looks strong and resistantgreat purchase!

Summary: 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.

Summary: 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...
