    Escape summer in the city.

    When the only storm clouds in sight are in your living room as the unrelenting heat of summer takes it toll, grab The North Face 2-Person 3-Season Stormbreak 2 Tent, load up the coolers, and hit the road in search of relief from summer in the city. This two-person tent lives and breathes to help you and a friend escape the concrete jungle on the weekends and occasionally enjoy a more lengthy sojourn in the woods. With two doors and two vestibules, space inside and out won't be what threatens the peace—try several days of freeze-dried meals and a small space and see what happens.
    Lightweight and breathable polyester taffeta makes this tent ideal for late spring through early fall trips. The fly is coated with 1200mm PU and the floor has a 3000mm PU coating so a mid-summer sprinkle doesn't thoroughly soak you or your gear. Polyester "no-see-um" mesh high and low lets air flow freely through the tent to minimize condensation and keep things civil between you and your slightly stinky camping pal.
    Two doors and two vestibules mean the only boots you'll trip over on your midnight bathroom break are your own. The easy-pitch design means you can get the tent ready while someone else does the dishes. Ample headroom lets both of you sit up without having the feeling of being in an awkward romantic comedy. If accessories abound, think about investing a Gear Loft, sold separately. If you're fleet on your feet and don't want the excess weight of the tent body, buy the ground tarp (sold separately) to have the Fast-Pitch option available.

    My first good tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I graduated last spring and, after camping with my family my whole life in giant tents, I wanted to get out on my own. I bought this tent and have used it 10+ times, mostly alone and a couple times with my partner. There's plenty of space, even with my boyfriend. I'm 5'2" and one of my favourite luxuries is that I can stand bent over while changing clothes. This tent is super easy to set up, and relatively easy to fit back in the bag. While I was discouraged by the bright yellow color when purchasing, it's actually really grown on me and creates pretty light in the morning. I have yet to test it in rough and wet weather, but I hope to soon. I really love this thing, and I haven't regretted choosing it. Also, backcountry was super awesome with the price and delivery and they made me feel comfortable buying from them.
    forever grateful,

    Great Tent for everything!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Recently took this tent up to the high sierras and was bombarded with a hail storm. Held up just fine! I'd absolutely recommend this tent. it takes a bit to take down but very easy to put up.

    one of a kind!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Storm Break tent is an easy set up, and an extremely great spacious design. The only negative I have for it is the water resistance is less than desirable in heavy torrential down pours but holds up to its job. The bug screen is breathable and extremely effective.

    Great tent

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Picked one of these up for a friend to take motocamping.
    Packs up nice and small making it easy to fit on the bike, fits two people and gear no problem, and holds up to bad weather no problem. She's had nothing but good things to say about it.

    Super liveable, outstanding value

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought on-the-fly in Santiago, Chile, for a ride to the bottom for myself and someone who joined my trip (Bonus: now my wife!). Massively lucked-out with this tent.

    Super easy to pitch, double porch rocks, fits two 6'2 people with ease, including sitting-up and stretching out. Easily fits gear inside and in the double vestibules (panniers and packs etc).

    Didn’t have any problems with rain, nor adverse weather, including some pretty epic mountain storms dumping kilos of gusty wind onto the tent in the shadow of Mt. Fitzroy / Lago del Desertio.

    Not a super-light tent, but if you’re bike packing, car camping or splitting the tent between you then it’s not a big issue.

    After ±60 nights its as good as new. Also: I secretly prefer this tent to my Hilleberg Soulo. Tent heresy!

    Not a good tent for wet weather

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is an excellent tent for dry weather, but it has one disappointing design flaw that affects its performance when the weather's not so good. I found it impossible to open the rain fly from inside or outside when it is raining without allowing about a quarter cup of water to drain off the rain fly and into the tent. The design problem is that the top of the tent and opening for the zipper on the rain fly is smaller than the floor of the tent. Thus, when you unzip the rain fly, the accumulated water on the fly drops straight down into the tent. No matter how hard I shook the tent and fly, this always happened. I recently returned from a canoe trip in British Columbia where it rained or drizzled about 20 hours a day for seven days. Except for this design problem, the tent performed well. It is a good buy for the price, but only if it is used in dry or relatively dry weather. I should add that I've used a variety of North Face tents over the years (including a VE-25) and this is the first time I've ever had a problem with the North Face brand.

      Very adverse thunderstorms , Constant rain .

      Tent was sturdy , dry , even though I was soaking wet and clothes , tent kept warm and dried me and my gear . awesome tent for the price . Two doors really comes in need . to store gear , and one to exit . I used a Walmart tarp for a foot print though . One night I used the tarp as a canopy to sit under , and was afraid that water would soak though the bottom of the tent , NOPE , one thin layer and no water , and great ventilation ment no moister build up . AWESOME , Price, Quality...

      Exactly What I was Looking For

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I do a lot of mtb endurance racing, and I usually travel solo. I was growing tired of setting up my Coleman tent that was larger than a studio apartment, and I needed better protection from the elements during the shoulder months.
      After scouring reviews, and prices, I ended up going with TNF Stormbreak 2. I did not need an expensive mountaineering tent, as I am basically just truck camping at these events. The packaging is nicely compact for car camping, but not too small where it is impossible to get the tent, fly, poles, and stakes back in the sack.
      I am very happy that I decided on the 2 person rather than the single person tent. It is very comfortable for me when I am by myself, and would be fine if camping with another person.
      On first use, I was pleasantly pleased with how well it held up in high wind and rain. As well as how comfortable I was waking up on a frosty 30 degree Texas Fall morning.
      The only complaint I had was that it seemed like 2 more stakes would have made it easier to secure the rainfly to hold up to a hurricane, but it is not like the fly was blowing around and waking me up like other tents I've used in the past.
      Some here have commented on the packaging size not being backpacking friendly, and I could see that. As a comparison though, it seems to be more packable than my Hennesy Hammock.

      TNF fan, period!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is my favorite, reliable tent that I have owned for car camping, not for backpacking. This tent keeps me warm and is vented very well during the night. I love the D zipper which makes it much easier for me to get in and out, even the fly. Very roomy inside and the height is fantastic. The tent walls are awesome to keep the cold draft out as well as fly doing a great job to keep the wind and rain out.

      Safe my hotel fee

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      There are similar designs from other maker however I love north face stuff the best. My jacket to the pants I own out lasted everything I ever own. This will do that as well.
      It is so easy to set up. took me around 5 minutes on my first try. I just hope the nails are a bit more tough since I use the camping wood to hammer them in. The quality is top and over my expectation.

      We slept really well and plenty of space for 2. There are extra space for your bags and more. we are 2 small Asian thou. if you are like 250 lb, expect to get a 3 ppl tent. I love the double exit. I don't have to step over my gf or step on her when I try to sneak out in the morning. As for the ventilation, plenty of air without the cold.

      Keeps me warm and dry!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've taken this out on a few multi-day camping trips, and it has been great so far. It's held up perfectly through a couple of downpours and several misty mornings. I have not had any issues with condensation as I have had with past tents. It is on the minimalistic side as tents go, so you won't get any fancy storage pockets or loops for hanging lights inside the tent, but as a fairly lightweight and weather-resistant tent it is great. Also very roomy for a 2-person!

      Very Nice Tent

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Took this on an overnight to Desolation Wilderness and I have to say, it's fantastic. Setup in less then 5 minutes, by myself. Nice protection from the elements. As you can see by the pic we got some good hail and snow and not one leak. Very well made.

      Very Nice Tent

      Good tent for rain.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      One of the first times I used this was when I took a group of my students for an overnight. Most of the first day, there was light rain. About 10 minutes after made it to camp, the light rain turned to a full on thunderstorm. The Stormbreak really held up well and was warmer than I expected. I like the way the fly extends out. I've had tents with vestibules, but the rain would just drip or blow into the vestibule area, making it almost useless. The angle on the Stormbreak seems to help prevent that.
      I've had fair weather for it on my other trips. I've started using it more for overnight float trips than I do for backpacking, and it works great there too.

      pretty tough for the price!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      ive owned this tent for about 5 months and have used it atleast every other weekend since I got it. its water resistant until it meets a super storm ( experienced one nasty storm where my mat felt like a waterbed) but other than a quick reproofing it has been a great shelter and investment.

      Solid Tent

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I recently took the Stormbreak 2 on a week long canoe trip and it performed excellent. We had a couple large thunderstorms and the tent kept us and our gear dry. No leaks. The vestibule has zippered ventilation which aloud plenty of air flow and kept us comfortable during the night. The tent set up is extremely easy and takes about 4 minutes. The Stormbreak 2 also seems pretty large for a 2 person tent and the extra room was nice to have. The stuff sack is also generous and it is very easy to repack. The sack also has enough room for a custom foot print I made. The value on this tent is very high considering the price and performance. I am taking this tent on a backpacking trip in a couple weeks and will update the review if I find anything of value to add.

      we just received this tent recently and set it up for the first time. Just curious.. how many places do you actually stake it into the ground.. we only received 8 stakes but it seems like there are 12 spots that need stakes if you use the rainfly. 4 corners, 4 side pulls on the rain fly by the doors, and then 2 more pulls on each end mid way up the tent which I guess pull the rainfly away from the tent as well? Just a bit confused.


      I usually only stake two of the corners so I can use the now extra 2 for the 2 guy lines that pull the fly to help vent it better. I plan on buying extra stakes anyway because after my first trip to uwharrie national forest I bent three stakes on hidden rocks.

      The North Face website says this tent is *water resistant*.
      Can anyone confirm if it is merely water resistant, or waterproof?

      When you use the rain fly this tent will keep out most moisture. Thinking that North Face just didnt want to say waterproof because almost no tent, and or jacket for that matter is waterproof. The fabrics they use are pretty darn close but, in the event of a complete down pour water is going to find a way in just not enough that you cannot sleep through the night. Reviews below say the tent stands up to some pretty harsh weather though!

      Does anyone have any experience with this...

      Does anyone have any experience with this tent? I'm thinking about picking it up but I can't seem to find any reviews on it.
