The North Face Trailhead 8
My family just came back from a weekend of camping.
Ease of Setup: very easy
Weight: very light
Price Paid: $500 cdn
My family just came back from a weekend of camping. It was our first time setting it up and it took about 15 minutes in pouring rain.
The weather was cold and it rained for a lot of the time. We stayed dry the whole weekend and successfully stayed warm while the weather was around 4-5C at night with the help of a good heater. The last night was even colder so we added a tarp on top of the fly to keep the hot air in completely.
There were 6 of us in the tent including 4 children (10,11,12,15) and there was plenty of room for all of us, our air mattresses and our gear.
We packed it up in the pouring again and had no trouble fitting it back in the bag...
Overall, we're very satisfied with our purchase and plan many more camping trips with our family!
Easy to set up. Easier with two people. Nice quality…
Design: basic but functional design
Ease of Setup: 1-10: 7
Weight: Never actually weighed it.
Price Paid: $400
Easy to set up. Easier with two people. Nice quality poles. Zippers work very well with no snags. Nice storage pockets for the things you need to keep track of: like Keys, wallet, and glasses.
Weight is fairly low for a tent this size. Another nice thing is that it fold back up nicely int the bag it came with. Keeps the bugs and rain out.
You could sleep 8 in this tent if that's all that is in the tent. My family of two adults and two small children fits nicely. The "rooms" on either side of the tent are slightly too low.
Here's what other sites are saying:
A campsite palace, this tent will make other campers drool with appreciation for the lavish, roomy quarters. Constructed with pull-down privacy walls that create three separate rooms, this roomy tent sleeps eight adults comfortably. Roughly the same size as a Manhattan studio, this tent's spaciousness doesn't distract from its sound structural construction and rugged durability.

Rounding out a host of features is an internal pocketing system, a strengthening combination of pole clips and sleeves, two roll-down dividers to create three separate sleeping compartments, and an included stuff sack.
