"The perfect tent for a small journey."
30 June 2013
Summary: This tent is perfect if you're looking for a 2 person tent. It's a fast and easy setup and holds up under tough conditions. Was backpacking for the week and stood dry from 1.5 days straight of rain. Even if you're looking just for a 1 person tent, this will work out perfectly. The 2 vestibules are really practical. They allow for more storage, and let you have cross ventilation even when raining since they shelter the doors.
Summary: I bought this tent for my 8 year old Cub Scout. He can even set it up himself!! It would be a little cramped for 2 large adults, but for two kids, it is PERFECT!! I suggest getting the footprint for added protection, as it kept us warm from some soggy leaves on our first campout with it. The only issue I see is that the vestibule zipper is a little far from the inside the tent. The added mesh is nice which allowed for ZERO condensation inside of it.
Summary: I love this tent. I'll be honest this is the first nice tent I have ever own but I adore it. I love that there is enough room to sit up when I want and I have never had a problem with the zippers. Also did I mention that it is incredibly easy to set up, which is a plus for last minute camping adventures in the middle of the night. The whole top is mad of mesh which is perfect for looking at the stars on those clear nights.
Summary: Been looking for a economical 2-person tent that is <5 lbs, double vestibule, and packed with features. I have never been a huge TNF fan, but am thrilled with this tent. The vestibules are sizeable, copious amounts of mesh, durable fly, and the zippers operate flawlessly. Mine had a trail weight out of the box of 5 lbs. However, I intend to change out the cheap stakes with some lighweight stakes to shave another 3 ounces.
"This tent is awesome i would recomend it to anyone who loves a great tent!"

Summary: This tent is definatly woth the money. i just got it in the mail last week and i am already loving it. The extra light poles are a big plus as well as having two doors so you can get up in the middle of the night with out waking the other person. Even though this is on the heavier side for a backpacking tent and also maybe a little to big, bottom line its a great "throw in the pack" tent.
Summary: Have had this tent for awhile now and it has been my primary backpacking tent for the majority of trips. It has withstood howling winds and storms. However, if the rain is coming down in big enough drops it does let in spatter from underneath the fly if your not careful about staking it away from the interior. It is a little heavy due partially to the included stakes. Which is why the stakes that it came with were quickly replaced with aluminum ultra-light Y-stakes.

Summary: i would say its great for the money. strong and sturdy. but not strong enough to keep chuck norris out. i meen when out of no where chuck jumps out of a tree with only a hair dryer and a sword you would expect him to get threw the tent. he shreded it on me and im due for a new one now. thanks chuck norris, keep sweating justice why dont ya.
Summary: I love this tent!! It is light and easy to handle. The tent is easy to set up and take down. I really like the two door / two vestibule set up. There is plenty of room to keep gear in the vestibules when needed. I also really like the feature in the inside, top of the tent where you can keep a light. The tent fits easily into my 50L pack. All around, perfect!
"LOVE IT! Best tent ever! DEFINITELY WORTH THE $$!"

Summary: I stinking love this tent! The North Face makes some awesome stuff, and this tent is no different. It is super easy to set up, which is great if you are a beginner or even experienced for that matter! Decently light, especially for a tent. Two people fit comfortably, and if you have a small child, they could fit if they absolutely had to. DURABLE. WIND-RESISTANT! I love the size of the doors, too. Weird I know. Not too big, and not too small. JUST RIGHT.
