When the whole family is ready to hit the trail but the youngsters aren't quite ready to lug their own tents around, The North Face Talus 4 Four Person Three Season Tent is ready to pick up the slack. At under seven pounds, putting in squarely in the superlight category, you wouldn't think the Talus is a spacious, family friendly shelter, but it's designed to be equally at home car camping as it is heading out on the trail for days at a time. Both the fly and floor are coated with waterproof polyurethane and fully taped, and there are polyester mesh panels on the canopy to let air in and let you look at the stars when the weather's nice. The Talus also uses The North Face's High Low ventilation system, which has a vent to keep air moving even when the fly's on, and a gear loft and footprint are included to make life on the trail, or next to the car, that much easier. As a final touch, there's an external Gear Locker that provides plenty of space for wet, muddy gear, so your sleeping space can stay clean and comfortable until it's time to head back home.
