User Review: The North Face Tadpole 23
Design: three season, three pole
Ease of Setup: piece of cake
Weight: 4.5 pounds
Price Paid: $140
I am completely satisfied with the Tadpole. This was my first backpacking tent purchase and if I were to do it all over again I would purchase this tent. The tent is lightweight and durable with no seam sealing required.
The first trip I took my Tadpole on in the Central Cascades of Washington it rained hard for 16 solid hours, both my buddies were wet in their tents but I remained completely dry. This tent is roomy! I'm a 6 foot 250 pound guy and had plenty of room for myself, 45 pound pack and boots.
