User Review: The North Face Mountain 25
I find it strange that some want to design this tent as a lightweight expedition tent. Hate to say it but after climbing for 35 years there are times when the "light weight" tents I have been in were not doing so well when pitched on exposed ridgelines or faces taking the full brunt of storms.
Must admit that I have an early version of this tent that comes in a little lighter but in all the years of camping in high places my 2 all time favorites are the Mountain 25 and TNF Oval Intention, still have one of those also.
Please don't turn this one into a single wall lightweight! If that is what you want there are plenty on the market.
