      Love it and it shipped fast. The free shipping was a nice added bonus. This tent is my personal aid station for lap ultras. Best one for it with all the room.

      I have always owned North Face products and any time I have had any minor issues they have always taken care of me. Recently our 12 year old bedrock tent had an issue with the rain fly. My expectation was to get a repair of it , but since they no longer make it North Face stepped up and replaced the entire tent and FP without any negotiations... Best Warranty in the Country and best Customer Service team to deal with. Thank you North Face

          Comments about TheNorthFace KAIJU 6:

          We finally boiled our choices down to either the Kaiju 6 or the Big Agnes Tensleep 6. The deciding factor was that the Kaiju 6 is long width wise as opposed to lengthwise. This means that with four people sleeping with their heads against the back wall, when you walk into the tent there would be a bit of room between the door and people's feet making it easy to get to your spot. With the Tensleep you would have to walk around people if you weren't in the first spot.

          I've only set it up once and my initial impressions are that it's a great big tent with tonnes of room and a massive vestibule. Having a large vestibule was important to us as we have young children and could put a toddler potty in the vestibule to avoid having to walk to the campground washroom in the middle of the night. We also wanted to be able to have an area where if it's pouring out, you can take off your shoes, rain coat etc comfortably.

          My complaints are as follows. It's North Face but it just kind of feels cheap. It just doesn't have the little touches a MEC or Big Agnes tent would have or that you would expect for an almost $500 tent. The various bags close with just a bit of cloth as opposed to an elastic cord. The tie on spots for the guylines are not very "beefy" and there's nothing reflective on the tent.

          I also don't like the fact that the doors on the vestibule open from the side closest to the tent. This means that in the pouring rain, when you open the vestibule to enter, you are exposing the interior tent to the rain.

          One of the cross poles has a curved section and it's not clear on the instructions where this goes. Customer service told me that that pole is meant to be the top pole.

          I hosed the tent down for a while and there were no leaks. Knock on wood this holds up.

              Comments about TheNorthFace KAIJU 6:

              Overall, this is a good tent design, but I think the consistently positive reviews are stemming exclusively from the extra-large vestibule. Without the generous vestibule, this tent does not shine brighter than its competition.
              Don't get me wrong, I love the main vestibule, but when taut, the zipper on the vestibule is difficult to close, and the storm flap tends to get caught in the zipper. With the vestibule open, privacy is lost since there is no "solid door" option for the main entrance to the tent.
              But most importantly, and the reason I am writing... the flat area of the rainfly, between the three main tent poles, holds water. You can shake the tent and some water will drain down the sides, but some of the water just bounces up and down and does not drain. One morning after a light rain, I woke up to a pancake-sized puddle on the roof of my tent. I pushed up on the tent/rainfly to drain the water, and all of the condensation from the inside of the tent was soaked up by the mesh ceiling and then dripped to the floor.
              There are many important features that make this tent great, but there are things that keep it from being a 5-star product.

                  I just bought this tent about 3 weeks ago and have taken it on two car camping trips so far. I'm an Eagle Scout and have done a number of backpacking trips, and this is my second TNF tent, but I bought this primarily for car camping and it is perfect for the occasion.

                  I purchased this tent for two reasons: number of people it can fit and it's height. I love that I can stand up no problem, which makes this a great option if you're bringing along people who are rookies with camping. It makes everyone comfortable. I would say this is more of a 4-5 person tent, if you like your room. This past weekend, I had 3 people and a dog in the tent and it was roomy. We could have added 1 more, with the dog, but not 5.

                  Quality is great, as expected. The rainfly is more like a seating area that it's so roomy. Great touch. My only complaint was that 1 tent pole and 1 rainfly pole are the same color and my first time setting up the tent, I wasn't sure which one went with what. However, you only make that mistake twice and now you know that the one that bends severely is for the rainfly :)

                  I love, love, love this new tent. I just retired so plan on going on many camping trips and this tent has so many nice features. As soon as it arrived, my boyfriend and I set it up in the yard. It took around 15 minutes. (We didn't put in the tent stakes.) I've never had a tent that I can stand up in and that I don't have to crawl into it. It's very roomy so there's more than enough room for the two of us and all our stuff. The reason it caught our eye on line more than the others was because of the vestibule. I like that we can keep our shoes outside of our sleeping area but not get wet. I'm also setting up a port-a-potty in there so I don't have to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night. There are three zippered entrances. Two into the vestibule and one that will let you enter through the back side of the tent. It also has handy velcro slots on the sides of the rain fly that you can prop open to let more air in.

                      My girlfriend and I used this tent in Yosemite in April of 2014. Camping in Wawona was amazing with this tent. We set it up in less than 20 minutes with two people and were extremely happy with its size and shape. The tent held up well to the small amounts of wind we experienced. If it is the summer months, the tent will get pretty hot with the rain fly on, as expected. Overall we were extremely happy with the Kaiju 6 and are going to use it for all of our future camping trips. Thanks North Face!
