The North Face Meadowland 6

There’s no need to rent a yurt in the forest when you can pitch this large six-person, three-season tent. The double doors and vestibules make getting in and out effortless. Plus, you’ll have a place to lace up and keep boots and backpacks dry without mucking up the sleeping quarters. The color-coded pole and clip-pitch system ensure a steady frame and will have this tent up in short order. A durable 70-denier nylon canopy with no-see-um mesh keeps air circulating and the living space smelling fresh. The fully taped, 70-denier nylon floor with 3,000 polyurethane coating keeps moisture outside where it belongs. The 75-denier nylon fly has a 1,200 mm polyurethane coating to buck the elements and provide shade from the sun.

Easy set up, large vestibules, great value.


  • Ease of set up
  • Large vestibules


  • Too short inside for most

We used this tent this past week in Algonquin Park and loved it.

We had set it up with the staff at the store and with little to no need to read the instructions (which were easy to follow pictures — excellent idea), we set it up in minutes.

Ventilation was great and lots of floor space however its interior height is really short — only about 4'6" and so hard to really move around.

There was some serious rain on the last night/morning and it held up great. No wind to speak of so couldn't speak to that.

Could have been a bit more taut however this could have been human error!

Vestibules are large and could easily keep gear dry and easily accessible.

Although we didn't have enough room to use the two doors, these are a great option. We were using a large double air mattress — which isn't normally what most would use but it's what we wanted. My husband likes some of the more finer comforts of home :)

In general, would recommend.
