This is my second The North Face VE 4-season tent. My prior one is over 30 years old and is still being used. With the VE 25 you are getting a great quality tent with enough features to satisfy anyone. Vents in the ceiling, window in the front vestibule, glow-in-the-dark lines and zipper pulls are just a few novelties you get with this tent.
The tent is spacious, easy to set up and take down. Very stable under extreme weather conditions. Great in for hot summer and for very cold snowy winter. Colors are pleasant too.
The shape of the floor is a bit awkward to space mats and bags. Even hustled packing is not a problem, all parts and even additionally purchased footprint, all fit in the original bag, with room to spare. Compression straps make it so easy to stow away.
This tent is so versatile that despite the floor shape I bought the VE 25 without hesitation. Great investment for the next 30 plus years!
