The North Face

Why We Like The North Face Assault 2 FUTURELIGHT Tent

Our bags are bursting at the seams with the gear required for the epic mountain trek ahead. That's why we make sure to carry along the Assault 2 FUTURELIGHT Tent to carry along shelter that doesn't tack on unnecessary weight. But even better is that it's crafted with 3-layer FUTURELGHT fabric. That means plenty of protection from rainy skies and loads of ventilation to keep the air fresh inside.


  • Year-round tent for overnights in the high alpine
  • FUTURELIGHT fabric boasts high water resistance at a lightweight
  • Dual top vents and breathable single-wall design keep air moving

Wish it was more durable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great design, found it easy to set up, especially in wind and storms. I wanted to like this tent, the design, size and weight are all great. But it didn't hold up, easily rips. Only used for 3 nights. And the compression sack doesn't work.

This is now my go-to shoulder season and winter tent.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Really happy with this! Took it backpacking in 10-20 degrees very high winds at night. No condensation issues, held steady. Definitely not ultralight by any means, but it's compact and light enough to be worth a quality shelter. Easy to set up - about 5 min. actually like the poles being on the interior. Pro tip - put the crossbar (on top) in first. It's a little hard to bend, but it'll get there. Used the loops inside to help hang things. It's a small 2 person. I used it solo and it was great. No tarp, so I used Tyvek underneath. This is now my go-to shoulder season and winter tent.

Tent does its job but it's not user friendly

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The North Face sent me an obviously used tent (stains, sand, and down feathers included)-I'm not sure why they couldn't at least clean it before shipping it as a new product. Damages are cosmetic, thankfully. The tent is light (compared to the VE-25 I usually use) and holds up well in negative temps and in the wind, but will frustrate you when you're at altitude and exhausted (vestibules and window pole lengths are way too long and take legitimate effort to remove, toggles for vestibule are plastic and much too small to manage when using gloves, no way you're going to repack the vestibule into the included bag when there's any wind, cinches don't hold on compression bag, elastic used to retain poles outside of compression bag, and interior Velcro straps for poles are too short to be managed with gloves on). The weight and material make for a great winter tent, but I can't recommend it due to short cuts and design flaws.

Fantastic! As long as you are short

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This review is for the AMK Assault. I Was extremely excited for this tent as it was at the top of my list since the launch. It appears many reviewers may not fully understand the very specific conditions this tent was designed for. It's a mountaineering tent designed for winter camping in the snow. It vents and breathes excellent in cold alpine conditions. I was blown away when I awoke to almost no condensation on the walls after a night of 2 humans in 20F. Would the vents benefit from mesh? Maybe. If you are using it in winter conditions bugs shouldn't be a concern. I could see a potential issue with snow ingress is blizzard conditions but I haven't experienced yet. Pitching is as easy as you can wish for. It would be cool if it came with snow stakes and maybe anchors too. I am 6'4" and this tent will be unusable for me. It is simply too short. My feet and head were pushing against the walls of the tent, drastically reducing loft and insulation in these areas. My feet were cold in a sleeping bag I've used in much colder conditions. I even tried wearing thick down booties but it didn't matter. If you are a sub 6' mountaineer you will likely LOVE this tent. If you are taller look elsewhere.

I have spent hours setting up other tents and this is amazin

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sets up fast and I tested out for a thunderstorm coming in at a campsite. Surprisingly dry and used it to keep everything dry.
