Description

Three-season versatility from the campground to the backcountry.

Need a tent that sets up in a flash, doesn’t weigh you down, and gives two hikers plenty of room to stretch out? Look no further than The North Face Rock 22 Bx Tent. The Rock’s classic X design and lightweight fabrics make it ideal for everything from a weeklong backpacking trip to a month-long road trip. Two full doors and vestibules give each person his or her own entry and storage space, while the color-coded materials and pole clips make for a quick pitch when a storm’s coming in.
  • Fly and floor fabric features a PU coating and taped seams to protect you and your gear from wet weather
  • Bathtub floor design keeps seams off the ground to help eliminate seepage
  • Double doors make for easy entry and exit; large vestibule storage space lets you keep wet bags and boots outside of your living space
  • DAC Pressfit poles provide structure and stability without weighing down your pack
  • Poles are made with DAC's Green Anodizing process, which eliminates the chemical polishing stage, reduces the need for hazardous chemicals, and recycles water throughout the rinsing process
  • Color-coded poles and clip attachments help you pitch the tent fast so you can get under cover quickly
  • Steel stakes are ultra-durable
  • Built-in gear loft helps you organize your gear
  • Fast-pitch compatible; just carry the poles, fly, and footprint to save weight (footprint sold separately)

Oh yeah

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This baby is durable, light, good looking, easy to put up, my go to tent. I love this little thing. It is a bit small for two people but worth it considering how light it is. Really happy with this one.

2P 3S Rock 22 Bx

A trip to Moab a few weeks ago reminded me that I was in dire need of a new tent. I hopped on BC and was psyched to find that the Rock 22 Bx perfectly fit my needs and was also on sale. It's easy to set up and fits two comfortably. The tent is well constructed and has some great features. It should be perfect for both car camping and some backpacking for years to come.

An amazing Tent!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I Love this tent. I have taken this tent through many backpacking trips. It has held up great and I expect that to continue. The only thing that I don't like about this tent is that it does not fit 2 large Therm-a-rest Neo air sleeping pads. Both my friend and I have these pads and can't use this tent when we want to go backpacking unless we have a different pad.

Great Tent!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Spent three days in the Mt.Mitchell area, and this tent held up amazing. Just used a plastic sheeting as a footprint, but the tent held up to some tough rains on our last night, including most of the bottom getting pretty wet. We stayed bone dry on the inside. Plenty of room for two (albeit small: 5'5" and 5'2") people, plus the mess inside. For the price I got it (clearance sale), this was a great buy. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great Tent!

Rock 22


I set it up in my dining room but haven't taken it camping yet. It set up fast and no defects. Looks like it will be a great tent. Fly extends low but is able to open up nicely as a bug/sun shelter because it has 2 vestibules. I bought some lightweight stakes from walmart since I don't think the rod-like stakes that come with the tent will do well in sand where I intend to camp. Roomy inside - easy to stretch out (6' tall) or sit upright.

Super Convienient

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

I used the past season model of this tent, and I love it! Way easy to set up, tons of room for two people and our stuff, and it can cool down nicely with the venting.

PS - It does great in the desert!

Solid

I have had this tent forever. I don't even remember exactly when I got it, but it was over 10 years ago. It's still in great shape. It's really more of a car camping tent--it's not ultralight or super-compressed in it's bag, but if it's spit up between backpacking partners it will do great for trips to the backcountry.

Early September overnight hike on the Crow's Pass trail in Anchorage, AK. This was at 8 in the morning after a windy wet night. The tent held both me and my buddy (both over 6ft tall) and all our gear inside, and withstood 40-50 mph winds that night. Love this tent!

Loved it

I took the rock 22 on my trip out west to Yellowstone and I absolutely loved it. First off the tent takes about 5 mins to set up, maybe a little longer if its your first time attempting it. In Yellowstone my friend and i had a short hike and camped for the night and woke up to 7 inches of snow!! Yeah we were cold but the tent was bone dry. I definitely recommend this tent it held up to the elements for us.

I'm returning the Rock 22.

I received the Rock 22 this week and finally got a chance to set it up today. I love the tent, the construction, and the features. It is a quality tent with a great price and terrific features.

If it's such a great tent, why am I returning it? Well, the dimensions listed for the tent are way off. The length is listed at 89". I'm 6'7" tall (79") and my head and feet pressed against the inner walls. I didn't break out the tape measure to measure it myself, but since I was touching both ends I believe the length is approximately 78" or so.

I'm still giving this tent a 4 star rating. It's a quality item and should work wonderfully for average sized persons. If you're very tall like I am, you'll want to look elsewhere.

Awesome all-around tent at a bargain price

I've had my Rock 22 for six years, and the thing is nukeproof. Mine has sheltered me from Tetons hail, Cascades rain and snow, Sierras wind, and everything in between. It's not the lightest tent, nor is it the most breathable. And while it isn't spectacular in any area, it's good in all of them. I'd highly recommend this tent to anyone looking for a great all-around tent at a great price.

The North Face Rock 22 Bx Tent 2 Person 3 Season

This tent is ideal for those who prefer to camp alone although it will easily sleep 2. It sets up in minutes and if your hiking it, hardly weighs anything.
