North Face and Mountain Hardware do a better job of marketing their tents as 'extreme', but Sierra Designs ?hands down? makes a better tent.
The DNA for this particular tent originated 30 years ago in the Stretch Dome.They've been perfecting ever since.
I've used Sierra Designs tents on 5 continents and in every condition you can imagine. Not once have I ever been failed. (And when you are in a howling windstorm in zero degree temps ?�reliability is a matter of life and death.)
Make sure you look at the size. Sierra Designs tents seem to feel a little more roomy than other tents. You may not need a 3-person, when a 2-person will do.
