User Review: The North Face Westwind 2
Design: Stake down tunnel
Ease of Setup: 4 of 5, with 5 being easiest
Weight: ~6.5 lb, or 3.75 with just Fly and poles
Price Paid: $400 new, I got mine for $100 used.
I had read a spec sheet a few years before I bought this tent that revealed that it withstood winds better than anything out there, which suprised me because it isn't free standing. I believe it. It is a bomb proof shelter that I'd never trade for anything, and suprising light I think for the 4-season rating.
On a recent (clear weather) trip to Whitney, we left the tent in the car, and just went with the fly, poles, and footprint and things went just fine and were with a solid shelter at 3.75 lbs. We did get some wind, but the fly goes low enough to shelter. I think for the weight savings (we had to carry climbing gear as well) it was an excellent move, and we would have been fine if the weather had turned worse.
