    More space, less weight.

    The North Face's Triarch 2 Tent maximizes internal space for camping comfort, yet stays light enough for backpacking. Its lightweight, freestanding architecture features vaulted arches at the head and footbox as well as vertical side walls for plenty of moving space. The North Face made the walls out of ultralight ripstop and breathable no-see-through mesh, and the PU-coated fly and floor protect the inside from moisture and abrasion.

    The Triarch also features double doors and vestibules for convenient entry and storage for both you and your backpacking buddy. The North Face integrated ample tabs inside for hanging gear, wet clothes, and the included gear loft. The added footprint keeps the inside liveable even when it's rainy and muddy out.

    Great product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First time I used this tent was in Death Valley. On a night with temps over 90 degrees, the tent was airy enough where I slept very comfortably.

    Second time I used it was at 12,000 feet with 40 mph winds and temps at under 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The tent with the rain flap blocked out all of the wind and kept us insulated. It is well built and the tent was not flapping through the night. I was extremely pleased with this product.

    So disappointed .

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

    The poles snapped the third time I put the tent up . Its super roomy , pretty light , and it looks great . But apparently the quality of material is shit . North Face provided 0 compensation for the time, money and inconvenience I had . I thought I was getting a great tent from a great company . I couldnt have been more wrong. The Customer Service team over there has to be the worst Ive encountered . I work with a CFI crew cutting new trails , and setting in steps to summits . I absolutely recommend you to buy any other brand .

    Great Choice

      I had a tough time trying to decide whether to purchase this or the MSR Hubba Hubba. Reviews were also limited which felt like a bit of a risk to purchase this. I am SO glad I got this one. We tested it out last weekend finally in the back country in Arkansas - just a one nighter. My wife and I and our Australian Shepherd, along with two 25L packs fit comfortably in the tent. Set up was literally under 5 minutes. I had also forgotten the footprint and was wondering the dog would tear up the floor and walls but I was very impressed with the durability of the materials. Incredible tent.

      Awesome tent, very roomy for the weight

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

      No the lightest tent for backpacking, but would be very suitable for car camping. Very roomy for one person and fits two people shoulder to shoulder.
      Strong poles that look to be able to stand up to the some wicked wind speeds and setup quite quickly.
      I can't speak enough about the ventilation of this tent as well. very airy and did not get any feeling of mugginess while sleeping in the tent.

      Top contender

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've field tested this about 5x thus far.

      For context, I own/have owned about 15 tents in the last few years, including Big Agnes Copper spurs, REI quarter domes, North Face, Nemo, etc.

      I bought the Triarch because I've always been happy or impressed with North Face gear. They get flack for their commercial success and diversity/mainstream-ness of products, but they've been around and successful for a reason. The Triarch appears to have been made as a competitor to the other ultralight but strong options on the market, such as the copper spur series.

      A bit heavier, but with some quality improvements in features.

      One, the heavier floor fabric and coating. A common complaint of ultralight tents is the lightweight floor fabric that tears or has need for a footprint. I've personally never had any floor issues on those light tents, but I choose my pitch spots carefully, remove sharp objects, and generally respect the utility of the gear and limits.

      However the Triarch floor material is a bit beefier and durable, and it's noticeable. It comes with the footprint, but if you won't be camping on rock or scree, I think you can get away with leaving it at home and shedding a bit of that extra weight.

      Two, my favorite feature is the extended head/foot end points, created by the spine pole extending outwards a bit before attaching. This creates some space right where you need it. Ever have the problem of your head or feet rubbing against the ends of the tent? Boom, gone. Also helps with gear loft placement, keeps it from taking up interior space or hanging down over you. Which btw, gear lofts aplenty in this guy, unlike the copper spurs.

      This also features modern door design for easier in/out access, makes accessing gear or shielding bugs easier, in addition to just swinging your legs out. Zippers flow quickly without snags.

      Main complaint would probably just be color? It's the normal NF color scheme, which looks fine, and I appreciate the bright color in winter on the snow for safety-sake, but green seasons it would be great to go more incognito.

      There are cheaper options that do a good job, but I think if you're looking between the copper spur (which is a warrior, and has few real rivals), this may be a better option.

      First Tent

        This is the first tent I purchased for myself and am excited to see how it holds up on the trail. Seems plenty sturdy and was easy enough to set up, though I am definitely a little crest fallen about the actual floor space. Like any slightly nervous but mostly excited consumer I settled on this tent after much research. I had read on GearFinder, Adventure Centre LTD, and The House that the floor space length was 84in, this is false. After setting it up and measuring it myself the true length is closer to 74in. As a 6'6" male this was one of the most important aspects of the tent. Luckily I can still lay down at full length (although barely) so Im still maintaining a positive attitude and looking forward to seeing how it holds up on the trail.

        First impressions

          I have just received this tent, which I hurried to pitch up in my garden.

          As expected, the tent weighs more than the manufacturer's data.
          I used a precision balance, here is the verdict:
          Total weight, complete with all the elements, 2055 gr - 4lb 8.5 oz (But without gear loft, missing!)
          Weight without footprint, 1833 gr - 4lb 1oz
          One can easily replace this footprint by Polycree,(or DuPont's Tyvek) very durable and three times lighter ... A piece of 8x5 ft = 2.5 oz . Just a few bucks...

          It's a quality tent with good materials. Easy to pitch up.

          I propose easy tricks to make this tent more wind resistant, with a budget of only $ 10/15 by purchasing 10 yds of 3 mm guyline and 4 or 6 stakes (6 or 7 inches long).
          Simply attach the guyline to the middle clip on the main pole,
          and secure to the floor with a stake each side. Do this again for the second clip.
          The guyline never touches the inner tent!
          Do the same on the highest clip of the tent. You must tie guyline with a clove hitch
          almost at the end of the short pole above the door. Then pass the string through the roof ventilation event of the fly, on both sides, and fix the floor with stakes.
          This never hinders access to the inner tent.
          Then finish installing the fly...
          These improvements add only 6.5 ounces, but your tent becomes much stronger in windy conditions.

          Apses are small, and fly is a little bit short (better venting), so you must provide a big garbage bag if you want to find your backpack dry after a rainy night.

          I'll write a review in mountain conditions as soon as possible...

          First impressions

          Putting on WEIGHT!

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

          Very nicely constructed tent, everything I would have expected from North Face. As to the stated weight of 3lbs, 12oz (1,701 grams), this weight does NOT include the weight of the included footprint. The measured weight of the footprint is 0.54lb (242 grams). My tent without the footprint weighs in at 3lbs, 15.5oz(1801 grams), about 5.9% over the stated weight (still had all the tags on it). Six percent over, I can live with that. Would recommend this tent to a friend. Have a good hiking season!

          Unanswered Question

          I am considering this tent as well as the MSR hubba hubba nx. It looks like size and weight are very comparable between the two. I see the Triarch comes with a footprint and gear loft, and appears to use more durable materials in the floor and fly. The MSR has a lot more reviews available though, most of which are excellent. Is there anything you can tell me about the Triarch that may help my decision? I plan to use either for backpacking primarily in Michigan where wet, and cold are always a potential.

          Unanswered Question

          With the rain fly not covering the complete area width wise has anyone experienced water getting in to the tent or does that part of the tent material do a good job of keeping water out?? Thanks!!
