Better tent than you people think

    I am on my 3rd season with this tent (Jan 2012) and find it's performance to be very good. In heavy rain there was condensation on the vestibule flaps but not the main tent body. Have not been out in sustained below freezing weather so have always had good ventilation. It is very easy to set up, stake out the floor at four points, insert the two crossing poles and clip the tent on. Stake the flaps, install the third pole and your out of the rain in under two minutes. you can add four more stakes to make it very wind stable (tested in 60 mph gust). The tent compression sack helps with pack volume, the poles are still straight (amazing). My only complaint is with the zippers on the interior wall as they are stiff and require two hands at times even after lubing with silicone grease and candle wax. My trail weight is 60 ounces. I am quite satisfied with the Phoenix 2 tent.

    At best a fair-weather shelter!

        This simply doesn't fit my definition of a tent - it leaks badly. Fortunately trialled it on a short trip and it leaked as soon as it started to rain - not just from the seams but from all points of the roof fabric. The rain wasn't particularly heavy - not even a downpour, but it kept up for 36 hours. Lying in my damp sleeping bag I could see and hear the points of impact of individual raindrops, which then appeared as a shower of smaller drops from inside the roof or ran down the inside of the roof to the floor. I have never known a tent to leak so badly. The problem then is that the floor is more waterproof than the roof, so litres of water collect on the floor. I considered pitching the tent upside down - ha! What a waste of money - this purchase goes in the bin. Sad, since I bought the tent in Whitehorse, Yukon (where I know it rains) and normally would trust a product from The North Face. Well, no more!

        Worst Tent Purchase Ever

          Best Uses

            I bought this tent when it first came out. I liked the weight and the single wall feature. I liked the fact that I could set it in the rain and not get the inside wet (like you will with many double wall tents). Im a Scoutmaster and camp almost every month. I own more than a few tents. My son liked the tent and wanted to take it on our trip to Philmont. I let him. Bad mistake. While the tent is very very light and a breeze to set up thats about all the good I can say for it. This tent wets out and leaks VERY quickly. It could easily have ruined our trip. We got lucky we didn't experience more rain. One evening it was almost dangerous as he and tent mate had down bags, they could not deploy to keep from getting wet. One evening they were pretty cold waiting for the rain to let up. Tent will protect from a few sprinkles, but if it rains more than an hour, your going to be wet. This sounded great, but till they perfect the fabric technology we will go back to double wall tents. My advice DO NOT BUY !

                I bought this for camping/hiking with my girlfriend since it was light and easy to set up, now that Im used to it I can get it up in less than 2 minn. I have been in some really wet and muddy conditions and it has always been dry for me.

                It gets a little warm but if you use a fan its not that bad.

                    I'm from Qu?bec, Canada. Nice little tente perfect in sizing.
                    But what is the utility of a tent who leak, leak, leak. This tent is unusable in my Country. Leak, leak, leak, not in munites but virtually in seconds.
                    Got it back to Sail, they give me another one. I already got 5 of them.
                    One word: LEAK.
                    This was my first North Face product. Unfortunately my last...

                      I must be the only one that received a "good" tent. I love mine. It sets up fast and dry. I have used it in the Smokies and along the AT in cold, wet weather. I have not experienced condensation or leaking. By venting both doors at the top and bottom I seem to have avoided those issues. I like enough to have purchased a second one for my 20 year old son.

                          I wanted a tent that was free standing, light weight and allowed my 6 ft frame to sit up.

                          Currently riding the East Coast by tandem bicycle with my wife, weight, size and ease of set up were major factors in deciding to buy this tent.

                          Unfortunately the tent not only leaks like a sieve but is intolerably hot and stuffy as well. Despite the claims of breath ability and cross ventilation, there is none.
