User Review: The North Face Stratos
Design: 3-4 Season
Ease of Setup: Easy--Rain fly takes a little longer and must be staked or tied off for the vestibules.
Weight: ~9 lb
Price Paid: $300 (on sale)
Great tent if you don't need a serious 4-season/expedition tent. Most 4-season tents are actually 3-season anyway since they're too hot in the summer. This tent is a nice compromise--plenty of ventilation in the roof and double doors. Large vestibules on both sides. Has held up great for me in high winds, rain, and snow. Plus, you don't have to buy a footprint. A generic rectangular tarp fits the floor profile just right (if you don't mind the extra bulk and weight).
