While the size of the North
Face: Himalayan 47 won’t exactly put you in mind of its namesake range there’s
no denying this is one mountainous, rock-solid tent – a massive high-altitude,
extreme-weather shelter for serious expedition use.
Based on the Himalayan Hotel
the Himalayan 47 boasts a broad 65 sq ft. floor area and a towering 58”
height. Dual doors with dual vestibules (including a hoop vestibule pole for
even more room in the front vestibule) allow you to set out a pile of wet
boots and gear. Continuous pole sleeves, a taped, nylon taffeta true bucket
floor (coated to 10,000 mm hydrostatic resistance), and internally adjustable
zippered top vents with mesh screens add structural integrity and dryness.
The tent includes Durable
polyurethane windows, cold-crack tested to –60 degrees F, internal pockets,
reflective guyline loops, guylines and glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls and a
fly-only pitching option for warm weather.
With a MSRP of $699.00 the
Himalayan weighs in at 15 lbs 4 oz. And has a stuffed size of 26”x9”.
