Sturdy and yellow. Heavy but strong. 7 lbs. Big in your pack, but not bad if you need it this strong in snow and wind. Could fit three people inside if needed. Floor is starting to get sticky but top not delaminating. Yet.


  • Strong
  • Weatherproof


  • Heavy
  • Floor and taping degrade

For camping below treeline it's overkill and no view outside, limited ventilation. In snow it's great, needs 2 stakes for vestibule but holds up otherwise.

Similar to Mountain 25. There are cheaper and lighter options now. Look at Warmlite if you can stand flaky customer service.

Price Paid: Can't remember. About $500


Welcome to Trailspace, Abc. Do you still use your Apogee? I'd love to see some pictures of it in your review, if you have any to share.

Probably the best 2-3 person tent anywhere. Fabric is a 3-ply waterproof breathable, more waterproof and not so breathable. Has some (closable) vents at the top to add necessary ventiliation. The best part of the tent is the ultra-fast setup--no fly to dick with in high winds. Just get the three hoop poles in from the outside, then crawl in and put the two main poles in from the inside. Can be done in total blizzard whiteout conditions no sweat. Very lightweight and simple, I love mine so much that I got two more for backup, and that was a good move--they're no longer made. No problem, I'll be using mine forever.

Just got back from winter mountaineering in Colorado. It did great--not a leak and warm. Great tent, everyone else love it--even the Bibler owners.

Ease of Setup: fair

Price Paid: about 700 US

This is one of the best tents the North Face has ever produced. It is a single wall tent (integrated vestibule fly) making night-time or snowblind setup easy even though two of the five poles are internal.

The structure is totally windproof and (needless to say) waterproof. Handles snow-loading excellently and two people can pack it in about five minutes. I have already pitched it a dozen times, not a problem anywhere. It can probably accommodate three people if necessary or if there is not a lot of gear.

This tent cannot be beat for climbing in extreme conditions (freezing rain and 50mph wind) like we found in Banff two weeks ago!

Design: 4 season alpine
