Description

Make your stand inside the Bastion.

When you're looking to create a four-season base-camp shelter for an even bigger and bolder adventure, The North Face Bastion Tent is ready to serve as a mini fortress for you and your team. And unlike light-and-fast mountaineering shelters, the Bastion's bomber construction, top-shelf materials, and large, thoughtfully designed layout lend you and your crew the peace of mind you need to sleep through Mother Nature's worst.

  • Athlete-tested Summit Series designation means that The North Face created this tent for demanding pursuits in challenging environments
  • Super strong nylon fly has a 1500mm PU coating to repel the harshest high-alpine weather
  • Ultra-durable floor built with reinforced nylon to withstand long periods of continuous use; a 10,000mm PU coating provides industry-leading protection against water
  • Bathtub-shaped floor elevates the tent seams off the ground to eliminate seepage; fly and floor also feature taped seams for added protection
  • Dual doors with poled front vestibule allow easy in-out and extra ventilation when the storm clears
  • Polyurethane port window lets you check the conditions outside without leaving your bag; window is cold-crack tested to -60° F
  • DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles offer a high strength-to-weight ratio and slide easily through tent sleeves
  • High-low venting offers air flow to reduce condensation
  • KEVLAR®-reinforced guy lines and four fabric snow anchors withstand strong wind gusts for extra security
  • Reflective accents and glow-in-the-dark zip pulls aid late-night movement in and around the tent
  • Pole-reinforced vestibule adds support and offers more room to cook and store items outside of the main tent
  • Interior clips mean you can add a gear loft and create extra storage space (square-shaped gear loft sold separately)
  • Fast-pitch-compatible (footprint sold separately)
  • The North Face Summit Series

Expedition Level Shelter

An impressive piece of gear, leaves no doubt that you will be sheltered from what storms may come. The reflective details really aid in setting the tent up in fading twilight.

Too much tent for me!

I thought I wanted a four season tent. I was wrong. This tent is expedition quality! Ruggedly made and solid, but I returned it because it was just too heavy. I felt I could have weathered any storm in it, but backcountry was kind enough to accept the return. I ordered a lighter weight (and better ventilated) tent from them.

Not perfect but the rocky ground made it impossible to get it right, lol.

bounght the tent based on the specs. I have used The North face gear before when I was clinbing years ago so I knew it was good. This tent was not what I thought it would be. In the rain moisture got in the floor, and in a high wind gust a pole snapped and the others bent. I called backcountry ans it was suggested I get the footprint. I was not happy. I called The North Face and the rep I spoke to emailed me a UPS label and send it to them. He said they would try to repair it and if they couldn't they would send me a new one. No company can have a 100% grade on their goods so I can't really say anything negative but the positive is they stand behind their products in a way 99% of companies out there won't, or at least that is my experience. That is the key to their success.

I'd like to respond to your review. I appreciate the candor. I've owned 3 TNF tents over the years, and 2 for the last 20 years. The Himalayan Hotel (4 person), and the Mountain 25 (2 person). I can't imagine anything breaking these tents. That being said, the tents built in the mid-nineties where superb, and I am not sure if the quality remains. I finally sold my Mountain 25 to a scout. I raised my kids in the Hotel, so now, I use it for car camping (as I am much older). I am glad TNF stood by their product. But, it should not have failed. A Trango 3.1 would not have failed (mountain hardwear). I am looking for a new back-packing tent, and may try Nemo. (But, to be honest, the TNF VE25 has also taken my interest). The Mountain 25 is one awesome tent, but it is small, and meant for 4 season assaults.

Thanks for your comments.
