  The North Face: Mountain 25


There are tents and then there are tents, they’re definitely not all created equals. While that clearance sale tent from your local sporting goods outlet may do for bivouacking in the backyard, if you’re serious about what you do, or if you’re scaling an 8,000 meter peak or facing gale force winter winds, then you want something exactly like The North Face: Mountain 25.

At 9 lbs. 9 oz. the 2-man 4-season Mountain 25 is the lightest of North Face’s Expedition tent series but that doesn’t make it a lightweight. Like the other tents in the line the Mountain 25 meets high standards for material, components and design.

The tent features Easton 7075-E9 aluminum poles, North Face’s lightest and strongest alloy design, and continuous pole sleeves for added structural integrity, as well as 16 guy points for stability in severe weather. Glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls and reflective guy line loops make nighttime adjustments easier.

For comfort there are internally adjustable top vents with mesh screens to keep spindrift melt off of you and your gear. There are also cone vents in the vestibule which, along with the doors and top vents, let you control ventilation and air flow for maximum comfort. The polyurethane windows are cold crack tested to –60F.

The Mountain 25 has a two-man capacity with 52 square foot floor (with vestibule, 34 square feet without), a sleek wind-resistant profile, and a fly-only pitch option for warm weather work. If you need a sturdy 2-man tent and you’re serious about what you do you can’t go far wrong choosing The North Face: Mountain 25. Available for Purchase here
