User Review: The North Face Tadpole 23
Design: three-season freestanding
Ease of Setup: very easy
Weight: 5 lbs with footprint
Price Paid: $155
I love this tent. I have owned it over a year now. I had a very small solo tent before this one and was always cramped. The Tadpole is really roomy for one and tight for two (advertised as a 2-man), but set-up is a breeze and it really keeps the rain out. The vestibule is plenty big enough for placing your boots and backback outside yet covered.
My only wish is that they made this tent a little smaller in a true one-man to bring the weight down under 4lbs. No complaints. Great tent!
