Kudos to The North Face Trailhead 6
I've camped my whole life and this is by far the best tent I've used. We've had it for three seasons now and it has held up in high winds and rain storms without any problems. It easily accommodates my family of four.
The North Face Trailhead 6 Bx Tent 6-Person 3-Season tent is a friggin mansion!!!
A nice one at that...
The North Face Trailhead 6 Bx Tent 6-Person 3-Season tent was SUPER roomie! It also had two dividers that hung from the top to divide the tent into three sections. Entrances on both sides made for easy access.
It was a bear to put together though. Other than that, I was pleased with this tent during my camping trip out to the dunes in September.
Great Family Tent!
Easy to set up. Perfect if you have little kids-- they feel special having their own 'room' in the tent.
Windy Day in Colorado
Very nice tent
Real nice tent easy to set up, two doors, screens as well as privacy doors.
bomber big tent, its sets up very easy, I just had this thing set up for two weeks in the desert, it withstood high winds continually, it vents nicely and the standard tent stakes were sufficient even in the desert ground. (usually re-bar or large stakes are necessary). THis thing is a palace, well worth the investment, I will rock this tent for years.
We are twice a year, family campers. So we had our king size air mattress, my daughters thermarest and a pack-n-play and still had some space for the bags & such. Loved all the hanging pockets and the foyer. Such a good tent. Very impressed.

what is the best 6-8person tent on the market? thank you, dru
The most bomb-proof tent of this size is going to be a big expedition dome tent like the TNF DOME 8... check it out, if you are into investing in something absolutely insanely solid and well designed!
A week a storms and still standing strong
We had over a week storms out on the Egypt Trailhead in The Canyons of the Escalante.
Borrowed this tent for a late spring weekend in Southeastern Utah.Used it to sleep 3 adults and one child with plenty of room to house a lot of gear and have room to walk in. Not too much trouble for set up in the dark with two people. It is tall enough to stand up in and has a large vestibule. Our weather was calm and and getting hot during the late afternoons. This made it roast quickly with the rain fly up. The tent has room dividers advertised and this put a notion in my head of actual rooms. Not really what I had in mind and was disappointed about that part but really no other complaints.

Is this a better tent than the Sierra Designs Moken 6? I like TNF clothing, but wasn't sure of the quality of this particular tent vs. Sierra Designs. Thanks!

What about staying dry in heavy rain? No one commented on that.
I was camped for over a week in southern utah in this tent. We had thunderstorm after thunderstorm we even had some huge floods go through the washes. But all of our stuff in the tent was dry. We have camped in snow and hail and it has stood up to everything.
Stands up to strong wind
I camped last Memorial Day week in Colorado when it was VERY windy...like 40-50 MPH winds constantly....
This tent took it like a champ. I've been camping for 30 years and it impressed me. My family of 4 has plenty o' room to spare inside the Trailhead 6. Compartments are nice for privacy....but who are we kidding, privacy in a tent?

hello, is the vestibule only created when you put on the rain fly or is it there all the time?
Only with the fly on. That's the definition of a vestibule.
After researching, buying, and trying a ton of tents (7) I settled on this one. Set up was a breeze, nice and easy. Great ventilation with the fly on. the front vestibule is large enough for one adult to sit in it in inclimate weather. The best thing about this tent is that the fly has an opening for the back door so you can get a breeze even with the fly on. Neat feature. i didnt find that the footprint, fly and tent were color coded, but could still figure it out. This is a great tent, just dont think its a 6 person, more like 4 and gear. A+
