Summary: I bought the tent a few years ago and I really like it. Sturdy, lightweight, holds up in the wind, with room for two adults. If you are going solo then it is an excellent choice. The price is also attractive if you are on a budget.
Pros: It is light, strong, sets up in no time at all and has ample room.
Cons: If you are in severe rain, it can develop some condensation.

Excerpt: I have a Rock 22 I got on clearance from the North Face outlet in Freeport, ME. I got a great deal (~$80) so I can't complain because it has been a great tent for the past three years. My model is the older one with full sleeves for the poles, which I prefer because it spreads out the stress from wind more evenly. My wife and I have used it car camping, backpacking and canoe camping, and it has been a great all-rounder.

Excerpt: I just spent 10 days camping out in France in this tent. We've had very hot days, very wet nights in bug infested fields and tent held up great against all of that. (I used the separately sold footprint as well) Setup was very easy, just a few minutes with a decent wind blowing over the field. The tent comes with a few spare cords intended as replacements. These are perfect for tying the tent poles together at the top, it makes any dome tent a lot sturdier in heavy wind.

Excerpt: I really like this tent because it is a very roomy and was super cheap when I purchased it. The only reason I dropped a half star was due to the weight which is a bit heavy for its class. I was thinking since I only paid 95 bucks for it I could certainly fit the bill for some CF poles to bring the weight down to other in it's class but I think I will just ride it till it falls apart.
We LOVE our Rock 22!!! We call it our vacation home!

Excerpt: We LOVE our Rock 22!!! We call it our vacation home! We bought ours in 2005 on clearance (it has pole sleeves, which I prefer for speediness) and have been so pleased. I don't usually write reviews, but this tent warrants it. It has withstood deluges in Maine and 50 mile/hour wind gusts at the top of Mt. Mitchell and in Patagonia. We use it for backpacking as well as extended car camping.
This is really two tents in one. If you know the weather…
25 May 2010
Excerpt: This is really two tents in one. If you know the weather will be good you can take only the inside/screen portion of the tent. If you are expecting rain with no bugs, take just the fly portion of the tent. If you are expecting rain and bugs, take both the fly and inside/screen portion of the tent. Very versatile for conditions and weight reduction if desired.
Excerpt: My Rock22 is the older green & beige one that I bought in early 2009 on clearance just before the current salmon & beige one came out. Except for the new color scheme, it appears to be physically identical. Feature-wise, the new one comes with the gear loft which I paid $18 for. I also bought the optional nylon footprint which enables the Fast Pack option. Good workmanship with high quality materials that I'd expect from TNF.
