User Review: The North Face Minibus 33
Design: three season
Ease of Setup: 10 to 25 minutes
Weight: 7 pounds
Price Paid: $289
The North Face Minibus 33 has unique pockets, a half inch over four feet of head room, and jake corners . It even has a fairly cool green color mesh surrounding it .That's where the well thought out, great design pattern ends.
The first rain I tested it in lasted about three days /off and on/ (not continuous and mostly only light drizzle.) After only a little over the first two days in the rain the H-clips that hold the parallel poles together snapped loose creating a small puddle on top, dripping about a quart of water onto the inside, sides, and tent floor.
Anyway, there's probably about a 100 percent chance that if you left this tent unattended during a real storm the entire tent would cave in from water.
