User Review: The North Face Trailhead 6
Design: three season
Ease of Setup: harder than I thought
Last year after searching just about every tent on the internet, I decided to purchase a North Face Trailhead 6 man tent. I was very happy to have made the purchase at first especially because it was a North Face tent.
After I set the tent up at a campground in Northern Quebec Canada, I must say I was very disappointed at the color which was a sand color. When I was in the tent I didn’t feel like I wanted to be in it just because of the drab color. It actually was depressing even on a sunny day. I must say that if I had the choice I would return the tent and buy one that is more cheerful in color. I should have looked into the color more carefully before my purchase but unfortunately it was marked down (I know why) and was not returnable.
I have been camping for many years now (car/canoe) and have been in previous tents which I felt happy in. I know that I am not alone when commenting about this as friends have also mentioned it. My suggestion would be to provide a more cheerful color as stupid as that may sound for 2009. I spent almost 500 Canadian dollars on a tent I don’t want to be in.
Other than the color,the tent seems to be fine. Why can’t The North Face design this tent in a nice blue or brighter color other than the two drab colors available?
