User Review: The North Face Rock 22
Ease of Setup: very easy
Weight: 5lbs and some change
Price Paid: don't remember
I purchased this tent at least 3-4 years ago and used it most recently on the outerloop trail in the Chisos Mountains at Big Bend National Park. Of the 3 of us (all with different tents) I was the only one to stay dry during the 1 night of high winds of up to an estimated 30 MPH gusts and almost a driving rain.
I used it as a solo tent because of my affection for mucho space. The ventilation on this trip was ideal. I cannot recall any condensation issues during the 4 day trip. If I had one wish though it would be that the tent was at least 1 lb lighter.
All in all I consider it to be a basic no-non-sense backpacking tent that exudes The North Face reputation for quality gear. I will admit that I just purchased a different company's much lighter 2 person tent for a CDT trip planned for early July.
I would recommend this tent to anyone. It's sturdy, moderately lightweight and bottom line...it's a North-Face.
P.S. my candle lantern was knocked around while in tent and the melted wax just peeled right off without any fabric degredation...wish I could say the same for my sleeping bag :(
