  • Summary: I've camped my whole life and this is by far the best tent I've used. It has held up in high winds and rain storms without any problems. It easily accommodates my family of four.

  • Excerpt: I have to say I'm a bit nonplussed by the other reviews here so far. I've owned a North Face Nebula for 10 years and the overall quality is very high for both tents. The floor material is exactly the same in both Nebula and T6 and I've never had a problem with my dogs (large lab and small terrier) ripping the floor in either one. I can only assume that user was unlucky.

  • Excerpt: Last year after searching just about every tent on the internet, I decided to purchase a North Face Trailhead 6 man tent. I was very happy to have made the purchase at first especially because it was a North Face tent. After I set the tent up at a campground in Northern Quebec Canada, I must say I was very disappointed at the color which was a sand color. When I was in the tent I didn’t feel like I wanted to be in it just because of the drab color.

  • Excerpt: Setup is easy, and matching footprint fits together very nicely. The interior space is awesome for a 6 man tent; It will sleep 6 people comfortably. Ventilation is good across the doors, but with the rail fly on and not taught via the additional guy ropes, ventilation via the side windows is blocked. The rain fly blocks sunlight very well, which keeps the tent cooler in the morning rising sun. The vestibules are very well designed, and can be rolled up very easily.

  • Excerpt: Tough fabric, rainproof, excellent stitching, classy room dividers, lots of ventilation, good headroom for averaged sized adult even in front vestibule, big enough to sleep six, lots of storage and hooks, poles average strength (bent some in high winds), pegs provided too short for many soils, dull greenish tan color inside, nicer light tan color for the full coverage fly, four guy ropes (could have more because tent catches lots of wind).
