User Review: The North Face Tadpole 23
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150 (sale)
Great tent. Very roomy in the right places (for one person—not two). Lots of pockets, full mesh.
- ease of setup
- should have a covered vent built into rainfly-otherwise condensation problems if not careful
Nice tent. Easy setup, no stakes needed. Nice and taut maximizes space inside. Great for one person to spread out. Too tight for two unless an intimate partner.
Lots of nice pockets inside. Very roomy vestibule to store boots, etc under rainfly. Get a footprint. Has full mesh. With rainfly, must stake out or condensation problems. Rainfly really needs a covered vent slot on top.
Durable. Very quick setup. Get green tent if you stealth camp or else orange will advertise where you are. Decent overhead room. Slightly on heavy side — but no issue for bike camping. Well worth the price!!! I paid $150 on sale.
