The North Face Northstar 4

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Made for trips where swirling winds are a constant and the Northern Lights oscillate overhead at night, The North Face Northstar 4 Tent is an excellent choice for expeditions into cold, unforgiving places. Its true geodesic design provides maximum strength to withstand howling winds and heavy snow, and it offers full stand-up height at its peak, which you know is a nice feature to have if you've ever waited out a storm in a tent for days on end. Since you'll likely be saddled with lots of gear, The North Face outfitted the Northstar with a poled vestibule to offer plenty of storage space and allow you to enter the tent without bringing tons of snow in with you. Ample vents accessible from the inside keep things from getting steamy inside. It also comes with a large duffel-style stuffsack to make it easy to haul to and fro.
