Description

The standard—improved.

The Mountain Hardwear Trango's multiple entries mean neither camper has to worry about being blocked in or out of the tent; there's a front and rear door in the tent, and additional entries in the vestibule. Mountain Hardwear's unique four-pole design allows for extra living space without sacrificing the tent's stability and strength in all weather conditions. In addition, UVX windows let you assess the outside weather conditions, while enjoying the interior comfort of the Trango 2. Large stake-out loops accept skis and pickets, for added convenience. Combine the Trango 2 with a rectangular gear loft and a footprint to take advantage of every feature. The Trango 2 Tent has been a mountaineering staple for years, and Mountain Hardwear just updated it with new fabrics to increase strength and save weight. This tent takes on any storm that any mountain throws your way, provides a large vestibule for storage, and basically makes other winter tent look wimpy.
  • New 40D canopy fabric with reinforced seams to lower weight and add strength
  • Pole clips to make pitching fast and easy
  • Large vestibule to add out-of-the-weather storage space
  • Multiple guy-line points increase stability in high winds
  • Double doors for easy entry and exit

Home Away From Home

The tent is the one piece of gear you've got to trust in no matter what the conditions are. The Trango 2 is bomber and once it's guyed out this thing is indestructible.

Unlike most "2 man" tents it has enough room so you're not cuddling with a smelly partner for 2 weeks in the mountains. And there is even room for gear!

A-bomb proof

I suffered a horrible night at Panoramic Point on Mount Rainier in early 2000. Terrific storm shredded my EMS 4-season tent. I bought this one, still going strong after 11 years. (3) weeks on Denali, no issues. Survived every storm. (3) weeks in Peru, no issues, storms not much like Denali but it dealt with the 14K camps warm temps and the 18K camps cold temps and storms just fine. (3) weeks in Ecuador, dozens of trips up Rainier and other lesser peaks. Many weekend hikes with the wife in the PNW. A true all season tent.
The two shelves inside the tent work wonders on expeditions. The three pockets on each side help organize gear.

I was hesitant to get this and not the 3 man tent, but I've proved the two man tent is plenty big on a big mountain. Has a small footprint that hugs any ledge. One very useful vestibule.
Many memories playing cards in a 35mph Denali storm hammering away. When the winds get up over 75mph fix the internal guy wires and its A-bomb proof. Kinda hard to move around, but when you do that you are more or less not worried about not moving around a lot.

Great 4 season tent.

I have the 2008 version of this tent. Got it for my birthday from my wife and have been in love with it ever since. It looks awesome when set up and is quickly pitched. Not only does it look killer but it performs like no other. I once spent 2 night and one day in a high desert monsoon. All the gear and the campers stayed warm and dry. I'd also recommend that you get the attic and the footprint.

Trango, or Mountain 25? I have a very old Mountain 24 and have used it all over the world so I know the NF benchmark, any views on the Trango by comparison?

Both tents are awesome and I believe people all over have had similar experiences as yours with the durability/quality of MHW and TNF tents. I'm tall though, so I'm biased towards the MHW tent as its a little roomier in feel and especially length. The quality of the MHW won't let you down!

THe trango is byfar a stronger tent than the NF mountain....I have both the tents and have used both on big mountain( Denali, reneir, Everst, and in the backcountry!...The trngo is alot stronger and better designed!

Just an asside. Ive had the 24, then (and still) the 25, after that I moved to the Trango, and now I'm using MSR's Asgard. For the amount of room, you can't beat the later. I've done trips with both my 25, a friend's Trango, and the Asgard, and have had no worries at all with the Asgard. The 24, and 25 are great, they perform wonderfuly, however, their build quality is just under par for my liking. The Trango was also fantastic, I enjoy it quite a lot, it's the narrowness, and the lack of air circulation in certain situations that was a drawback for me. The Asgard is a little lighter than the Trango, and because of it's "halo" poles, the integrity in the winds (we've met some +60mph) is unmatched. The halo'd pole design also means that there is much more internal space that is actually livable. and the massive vestibules are plenty for gear, dogs, cooking, etc. It could very well be a tight 3 person tent if needed but I wouldn't recomend it with my size (6'2" 220). Use simple guy lines in heavy winds or point the tent into it, and it hunkers down and becomes apocolypticly sound.

Set the tent up inside and threw a couple bags in there to get an idea of how much space I'd really have. Definitely a roomy 2 man tent. There's also some nice gear storage on the walls and overhead.

That is a great image of the inside, really gives you an idea of what you are working with

This is the best tent I have ever used, I have been camping in it for the past week looking for a place to say and it has held up like a champ.

Perfection

Great tent. The description hits the nail on the head. We even fit 3 people in this tent for one of our outings. Only complaint is in order to hold up the vestibules securely you have to attach them with three points each. Kind of a pain if you don't have a perfect pitch site. Also on the main vestibule it would have been nice to include a small square zipper vent. When cooking steam from boiling water builds up, to circumvent this you have to have one of the doors partially open. The problem is that they don’t really want to stay wide open and are not placed specifically for venting steam from cooking. So they either flop back inside and get in the way, or they don't let all the steam out and you still get moisture inside. We just ended up opening one of them up half way and sacrificed a little lost warmth. Other than that this tent is awesome.

Bomber Tent!

I took this tent on a 40 mountaineering trip in the Himalayas and it was great. It held its own through the end of monsoon season and was perfect on glacier.
