User Review: The North Face Westwind 2
Design: Non-free standing (3) hoop
Ease of Setup: Very easy
Weight: 5 3/4 lbs
Price Paid: $390
By far the best "REALLY BAD WEATHER" tent I've used, handles winds that flatten my buddies' tents, snow loads within limits. If you leave the vestibule open and stake out the point between the two rear stakes you'll find the condensation that others have mentioned isn't a problem.
5 3/4 pounds for a totally secure shelter "ain't" bad. A real pity it's not made anymore. I was lucky enough to obtain three so I have a spare or two. I haven't "worn" out the original if anyone needs a spare store demo. I've used this tent on the crest of the PCT between WA and Canada (bad storms), Alaska all over, and several winter camping trips in WY and MT.
Seam seal it and you'll be happy in anything. It's a bit tight for two but was designed as a final assalt tent for high altitude and it's just the best at that for the weight.
