Mountain 25 tent keeps out the cold

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times



This tent is a must for those looking to venture out into the mountains during winter. It is a bit heavy (almost 9lbs), but split up between your tent mate(s) it is quite manageable. The set up is pretty easy even in gusty conditions with two people. This tent fits three people relatively comfortably, provided each person is average size. Three people also makes the space quite toasty even on cold nights. The gear lofts and side pockets are great for stashing loose ends, and the dual vestibules are spacious enough for a couple packs and boots.

Hey Adam!
Yep, Sean is a buddy of mine. He was camping atop Mt. Baldy with a fellow ski patroller last year on May 5th The night of the SUPER MOON! Rad stuff! Look for this photo to be featured in an upcoming article on the EXPLORE page :)

Great tent, but sold it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a fantastic tent for what it is - a bomb-proof winter expedition tent. Super stable, super warm. But it's not such a good tent for anything else. For a three-season or one-tent-for-everything it is heavy, it doesn't breath well in warm weather, and it is much more complicated to set up than a traditional 3-season tent. I bought it under the allure of buying a tent that made me feel like I was ready to climb Denali, but 99% of the time I lugged it on my back during summer and fall backpacking trips. I finally wised up and bought a Big Agnes Copper Spur3. Now for less than half the weight I have tent that is much easier to set up, much roomier, breathes well in the summer, and still has seen and survived heavy wind and moderate snow. Giving this tent 4 stars (would give 5 but for lack of versatility), but would suggest you be honest with yourself about what you are going to use this tent for the majority of the time. For me the BA Copper Spur3 was a much better option and certainly matches the quality of the TNF Mountain 25

I will admit that this tent is a bit on the heavy side but I always split my gear with my partner.

But recently, esp. for the summer, we just carry the stakes, the fly, and the poles. The fly provides adequate shelter in high alt. For low altitude areas, I can only imagine anybody who uses only the fly to be tortured by bugs and mosquitoes.

The poles and stakes are light and the fly looks pretty awesome when deployed. Kind of looks like a shelter for a colony on mars! lol

The vents help minimize condensation but they don't have a mesh to keep the bugs out but again, it's not a problem when use for high altitudes. I just wish they had some kind of screen if I ever used it in a forest.

In regards to weather, this tent can withstand it as long as you have it properly staked to the ground.

I have never gotten wet yet and the bathtub design gives me that confidence that I will still stay dry even when I set up in a puddle.

Favorite piece of gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is by far my favorite piece of gear. I have used this tent in all types of environments from the Gulf Islands National Seashores to blistering cold nights in Stanley,ID. I would recommend this tent to anyone...easy to set up and pack in..and great compact size. Thanks NF!!

Definitely a 4 season

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I probably don't need a 4-season tent. I won't be summiting anything anytime soon. But this is a great tent. It's all the little details that I like - you can pitch the tent in standing water and stay dry, all of the zipper pulls are glow-in-the dark, plenty of pockets on the side and the ceiling, etc.

Although the bag has three compression straps, which I like, it's not very durable. I already have a rip in the bag after two trips.

Hello, I just got this tent. It came with 15 stakes, but it seems to me that more than that is needed to set it up. How many stakes do you use to set it up, let's say, for the 'worst it should handle'. Thnx. Mariano

Best Answer Responded on

Most tents don't come with enough stakes to cover EVERY tie down point and floor attatchment points. So it's really up to you to know where you think you may want areas staked down. Personally, for this tent with the fly on you obviously need a few for the vestibules, after that if its windy you might as well hit most of the tie downs higher and on the side of the fly. Whereas, if its not so windy, you might as well stake down the floor to create more room inside the tent. Hope that helps.

Are the seams sealed already or do you have to do this yourself? Thanks guys.

Responded on

The floor and fly are fully factory taped. I'd seal em' anyway to increase durability and longevity.

Wow - three people relatively comfortably! I wonder what average size means? This thing is listed at 54 inches wide, which would fit two 20 inc mats with just a bit of room to spare on either side of them. Three 20 inch mats wouldn't fit, though.

Bombproof and bombproof

I'll keep it simple this tent rocks if you have a car or someone to carry it otherwise get a back brace this thing is HEAVY, and could vent just a little better. The DAC poles practically put them selves together. Will last you years and keep you warm.

Huerfano creek valley, Colorado. Night was windy and cold so besides unlucky cook-on-duty the rest of the family is still half inside under the outer shell where enough room for gear, boots, four heads and that sticky spill morning coffee.

what is the main difference between the mountain 25 and later changed mountain 25 summit series

Responded on

I have the older Mountain 25 and i can tell you that the poles do not cross in the center of the tent. The newer Mountain 25 has crosssed poles for additional crosswind strength.

The North Face - Still a Leader.

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.

How's this tent in the summer? I'm looking at using it in the Grand Canyon, and want to be able to use it along the Appalachian Trail in the future.

Best Answer Responded on

Hot in the summer, not enough ventilation for warm temps, and really heavy to be packing if you don't need to. Great tent, just not the one best suited for the needs you described.

Responded on

This is a good tent but at almost 9 pounds I wouldn't want to carry it on the AT. As Phil posted, you will also get very warm using this tent in mild temperatures. You will want a 3 season tent for the adventures you are describing.
