User Review: The North Face VE 25
Design: Expeditoin double Wall tent
Sleeps: 3 People
Ease of Setup: This tent is very easy to set up.. with only 5 poles.
Weight: 9 lns. 4 ounces
Price Paid: $595, but I got at it for $20 at an auction
This tent is the best for three people and expedition tents. It can survive up to -60 degrees F. My dad stayed in it in Alaska at -60 F, and was warm. He of course had a sleeping bag, but he stayed there for 3 months.
Although it is pricy, costs about $595 now, it lasts a long time. Our tent is 18-years-old and still perfect. The only thing is the dog tore a hole in the floor that had to be patched. Depending on the weather conditions and what you will be backpacking in, it's a great buy. This is an investment that will last decades, if you don't care about the latest gear.
