The North Face Mountain 25 Tent Review

Quote:
The North Face Mountain 25 tent uses four beefy poles for the main part of the tent. The poles are positioned so that they intersect 7 times. This design yields great strength without requiring a more complicated set up. The main part of the tent is about 32 square feet. We found this comfortable for two person use. There is a fifth pole used with the rain fly that creates a large (8 square feet) vestibule. Ron and I found this adequate to keep both our packs out of the weather, and it is also a good spot for cooking. The other end of the tent has a smaller vestibule (3 square feet) that will fit boots, crampons etc. Read More...

If the tent is as good as the expedition parka I bought 40 years ago (and it's still my go to cold weater outer gear btw), I suspect the tent is a quality product.

I think you will be very pleased with the mountain 25 when the conditions get rough! I'm planning to try the Hilleberg Jannu next year...

Re: The North Face Mountain 25 Tent Review

I have the older version of this tent (bluish green/black) and it is one hell of a tent. Had it for years and years now and used it numerous times.

I highly recommend it.
