I got this tent from The North Face when I sent in my 17 year old "West-Wind" because the floor was starting to leak. Despite my "Westy" being well used, TNF sent me this tent for 50% off which I thought was extremely generous. Right off the bat I was impressed. This tent is extremely well thought out. The tent sets up with relative ease. Having set up other expedition type tents I thought it was rather intuitive. Remember this is a virtual bomb shelter so it's not going to go up as fast as tents that are engineered for lesser conditions. That said, it has numerous tie-downs for heavy winds and the fly attaches to the tent with ease. Inside the tent is roomy and two people can spend extended periods inside with relative comfort. There is a ton of storage everywhere on the sides and overhead for your gloves, headlamps, books, whiskey or to dry your socks. The vestibule is also roomy and the window is a nice touch to let you see out without opening the door and letting all the heat out of your tent. It's not light. But its not that heavy either. This thing is light-years more advanced then my Westy which was, and still would be, a kick-ass tent. I like the use of the whitish gray panels because personally I get sick of sitting under a solid yellow glow all the time. The white breaks it up. Now I know that TNF got a lot of bad press when it was bought out by Vanity Fair but I don't think it deserves it one iota. TNF makes great gear. I started climbing back in the early 90's and The North Face was one of the only games in town, (literally right down the freeway) so I bought a lot of it. I still have most of it and the new stuff I have has not disappointed me one bit. If you're looking for a two-person tent that will take a beating - this is it.
