Weighing in at less than five pounds, this single-walled tent not only packs light for a two-person outing, but it’s manufactured with a high-tech breathable and tear-resistant Drywall fabric that will keep you and your expedition partner safe from the elements. The canopy and floor are made of 50-denier polyester ripstop, while the floor features a 3000 mm polyurethane water-resistant coating. The rainfly is a 33-denier nylon with a 1500 mm polyurethane/silicone-based coating to slough off dirt, debris, and even gropple. Imagine all the freed-up floor space thanks to the built-in gear loft and body and vestibule hang loops. Two 9 mm DAC Featherlight aluminum poles provide a solid frame. A removable vestibule can be left behind during a summit assault or for lighter travel.

Features:

  • Drywall proprietary single skin
  • Removable 33D siliconated nylon vestibule
  • Drop door with upper mesh zip
  • Reflective Kevlar guylines and glow-in-the-dark zip pulls
  • 4 fabric snow stakes

Here's what other sites are saying:

In years past, serious backcountry adventurers tended to avoid single-wall tents because the fabrics used to make them weren't really all that waterproof or breathable. Technological upgrades in fabric quality have produced a new generation of single-wall tents that live up to The North Face's high standards. Thanks to its all-new DryWall fabric, The North Face Assault 2 2-Person Tent provides four-season protection from the elements and is making serious adventurers rethink the value of single-wall tents.
