turd furgesonwrote a review of The North Face Tadpole 23 Bx Tent: 2-Person 3-Season on March 26, 2011
I had this tent for almost 20 years. Just recently, my girlfriend left it in a rental car. It looks like it has changed in minor ways over the years. The poles, still aluminum, are light but cheaper made and seem to sheer now, something my old blue tent would never do. Speaking of color, it now comes in fancy colorscool! and the rainfly has a big fancy vestibule. Definitely buy a footprint for this tent, it's worth the 40 bucks or whatever. The newer models are a bit wider in width as well, which is both good and bad, depending on whether you wanna snuggle or sleep in luxury, alone.
