When conditions get so bad that even the rocks go rolling for cover, hole up in The North Face VE 25 3 Person 4 Season Tent. The VE is a full on bombproof expedition shelter designed for long lasting alpine missions, with a super solid construction that's built to withstand high winds, heavy snow, and serious exposure. Its classic two wall design provides killer weatherproofing while keeping things breathable and reasonably fresh when the weather clears, and the PU coatings on the fly and floor stop water from seeping through even prolonged think two week Alaskan storm exposure to moisture. So you're not climbing over your companions and driving each other nuts during a long stay, The North Face decked the VE out with dual doors, each boasting a bombproof vestibule. High low venting keeps some fresh air moving through the VE so it doesn't smell like ski boots, sweaty socks, and freeze dried mac 'n' cheese farts. A PU port window lets you check on the storm, and reflective guylines make sure you won't trip on your tent when you head outside during a quick break in the weather. The guylines are also made from no stretch Kevlar, the DAC stakes have pull cords for easy battening of the hatches, and there are also fabric snow stakes for security when you're setting up camp in soft snow.
