The North Face 2 Person 3 Season Talus 2 Tent shields you against things that go bump in the night from early spring to late fall, and it protects your bank account from overpriced outdoor gear. Whether you're solo car camping and want the extra space or you're backpacking with your camping comrade, this little number is big on space and ventilation. The rear gear locker and included Gear Loft help organize your gear when you're bedding down for the night. Robust 70D nylon on the floor keeps ground moisture at bay with a 3000mm PU coating. The fly is made from sturdy 75D polyester and then coated with 1200mm PU to repel water. Hot and dry nights mean you can ditch the tent and save some weight by using the Fast Pack option: fly, pole, and ground tarp only. While the full tent only weighs 5 pounds, the Fast Pack option is a mere 3lbs 2oz, so you can use those two extra pounds for important things, like chips and cookies. High low ventilation in the tent body blends mesh with solid panels to maximize cross tent airflow, minimize condensation, and reduce the chances of unpleasant odors lingering throughout the night. While only one entrance exists to this two person tent, the fly hides extra storage space at the back of the tent. You can access this nifty gear locker from inside the tent so muddy boots and wet packs don't make the vestibule impassable.
