Hambonewrote a review of The North Face Flint 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season on October 29, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Things I LOVE about this tent:
-All the mesh makes for a cool summer camping experience
-It's light and the bag has some extra room so you it's easy to pack and unpack.
- I've been caught out in a few severe thunderstorms with 50-60 mph gusts and it stayed completely dry inside (and in the vestibule) and remained structurally intact.
-The price is good
Things I don't like:
- The placement of the only door is on the end of the tent, rather than the side, which makes it somewhat awkward to get in and out.
- You'd really have to like the other person if you were sharing this tent, meaning there's really only room for one person to sleep comfortably. I'm only 5' 8" (on a good day) and my head and feet touch both ends of the tent.
Long story short, it's a good tent for the price and for one person to take on a weekend camping trip/hike. I haven't backpacked with it, and won't as I'm going to return this tent and look for something a little bigger. Probably TNF's "Rock" series, which features two doors on either side of the tent. A little more expensive, but worth it for my taste.
