The North Face Assault 2

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.
