  The North Face: VE–25 


The North Face: VE–25 

Tough, durable, sturdy and strong are attributes that describe your typical climber, add roomy, water-resistant and color-matched and you’ve got North Face’s most popular expedition tent, the VE-25.

Often copied but never duplicated the VE–25 was one of the first expedition tents designed with a spacious geodesic dome architecture. While the tent materials have improved over the 20 years since its introduction the VE–25’s keeps-you-dry design and durability have ensured its continued popularity.

The VE–25 features fully continuous pole sleeves for structural integrity, a multiple guy point design for additional stability and is capable of withstanding extreme weather making it ideal for expeditions and high base camps. A 17 sq. ft. vestibule keeps Old Man Winter howling outside and gives you room to stow boots and wet gear, while you and two buddies stay dry in the tent's 48 sq. ft. floor area. Add internally adjustable top vents with mesh screens (so spindrift melts at the fly sheet not on you and your gear), durable polyurethane windows, reflective guy line loops, glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls, a fly-only pitching option for summer and you've got a versatile 3 man tent designed to stand up to the worst the weather can throw at you.

Weighing in at 10 lbs 13 oz. the sturdy North Face: VE-25 keeps 3 men dry at a MSRP of $499. Available for Purchase here
