Turns out light and spacious aren't mutually exclusive.
If you thought packing light meant encasing yourself in a claustrophobia-inducing bivy sack at the end of the day, then you thought wrong. Lightweight and spacious by design, The North Face Mica FL 2 Two-Person Three-Season Tent will keep your pack weight at a minimum, while providing plenty of living space for you and your two- or four-legged trail partner to kick back and relax after a long day on the trail.
The hubbed pole design maximizes head space and opens up both ends of the tent for more sleeping space. Dual doors and vestibules offer plenty of dry storage space for gear and make getting in and out of the tent throughout the night super easy. The North Face even threw in an included footprint, which helps extend the life of the tent, but can also be used to trim weight for fast and light trips by using just the footprint and fly for the past-pitch set up. When biting bugs are expected, the no-see-um mesh canopy is a must, and it features an included gear loft in the main canopy, so you can keep your headlamps and trail maps easily accessible.

- Q & A
Gear loft or pocket, you decide.
This tent is really easy to set up, comfortable and truly freestanding. At most to do a full set up with rain fly and everything, you'd have guy out two points (vestibule doors). The vestibules are so spacious, I probably could have saved myself some weight and gone with the one person version. The included footprint is kind of ill fitting, but not enough to be a hassle (I found if you put the foot print loops on the poles first, and then the tent loops, the tent loops hold everything together nicely). There's a lot headroom which I like. I'm 6', and 215lbs, I never felt crowded in this tent. Over all I like the tent, but I'm not in love with it yet.
The included gear loft is kind of wank on The North Face's part. It's a large mesh pocket at the head of the tent. Not a gear loft you clip on with hooks like other tents.
Packs Small and Feels Light
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a really light, easy to use tent that is perfect for minimalist camping. I did 4 stars, because it's still new, to me. However, I've been very happy with it and feel confident that it will be an all-star tent.
I love how small this packs down, even with the footprint and rain fly. I was able to strap it all down on the bottom, outside of my pack, which gave me tons of extra room, inside. The width is just enough for two pads, but there's plenty of room for your gear to be stored either at your head, feet, or in the vestibules.
There is an upgrade on this 2016 version, from last years. It is free standing. This is a huge plus for me, because I never know where I will be pitching the tent. In this photo, I had to stake two corners of the tent down. The dirt was rock hard and basically impossible to drive a stake in. Plus, sometimes a flat rock, is the best spot for a tent. So, this freestanding feature is a huge bonus!
Sitting up is a dream. There is plenty of head room. Also, the views this provides, without the rain fly, are gorgeous. 360 degrees, can't complain!
This is easy, easy, easy to set up. I figured it out, without reading any instructions.
