User Review: The North Face VE 25
Price Paid: 600 CAN
I had the original VE 24, which was the best tent I ever had. The VE 25 I now own is great, but over-designed for my needs. But the reason I got it, is it's a great 2-person + geat tent in rain, wind and snow. With gale force winds, and I've seen this in the Rockies, Adirondaks and more, I need to sleep and very few tents will stay put and stable without flapping and air changing every othe gust. But the VE 24-25 does. You can be calm inside, and walk out to whipping weather.
Anyhow, if TNF came out with a VE 24 re-edition, or a simpler fly without huge vestibules and without the screaming yellow for the VE 25, I would buy right away. In the meantime I'm forced to be obnoxious in 'small' mountains with a great tent that's ready for anything...
