User Review: The North Face Tephra 22
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $90
Simple design of a tent. This no-frills tent will get the job done.
- Easy set up
- Keeps dry
- Storm guy outs
- Bathtub floor
- Heavy for size
- Only one door and vestibule
- Small space in vestibule
This tent is what I would consider a roomy 1 person tent. That being said, you could fit two smaller people snugly.
What I like: Very weather proof, Easy 2 pole design, Corner pockets, Storm guy outs, Spacious for solo hikes, Plenty of headroom.
What I don't like: Only one side door for two people, Small vestibule, cautious about cooking under it, Heavy (almost 6 lbs.), Not ideal for most hikers.
This is a decent tent, and has the option of fly only pitch with footprint. But still, I have a hard time getting around the weight to convenience factor. If it was a couple pounds lighter, I would live with the single door. But it gets the job done, no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.
