Summary

Single wall tents are a great way to keep weight down, but you do need to manage the air flow to prevent condensation on cool nights. It is just one more skill. North Face did a great job on this design. It is palatial for two adults and comfortable for three. An easy dry pitch.

Pros

  • Dry pitch
  • Lightweight
  • Excellent doors offer protection in rain and one handed zipper operation.

Cons

  • Condensation

This tent pitches fast and easy without a footprint. No holes in the floor yet and I don't expect any. Pitched smooth and taut, and the doors work great one handed.

It is very easy to leave the rain outside when entering during a storm. Learn to pitch with a door facing the wind to enhance ventilation. Forcing ventilation really solves the condensation issue.

- SunnySports

Thanks to its proprietary single-wall DryWall technology, The North Face was able to keep the trail weight of the 3-Person Phoenix 3 Tent right around four pounds. Split that among three people and you'll each be carrying around a pound and a half. The North Face's innovative crossing ridge pole design adds lots of headroom without adding much weight, so a day spent playing cards due to bad weather isn't nearly as bad as it would be in other, less roomy tents.
