North Face Mountain Withstands Gale Winds of Quetico
Bought the NF Mountain in June 2007 and took it into Quetico Provencial Park in late July for 12 days. Withstood a torrential rain storm early in the trip, and later, it survived two days of high wind while we were stranded on Lookout Island on Pickeral Lake. Sturdy, roomy, comfortable with lot's of pleasant storage surprises once you start living in it. Buy it if you want a quality tent.

The Northface Mountain 25 Tent is an excellent Tent!
I had my maiden voyage recently with this tent, and under severe winter conditions (snow, wind, and subzero temps) it held up extremely well. Other campers had problems with their tents blowing down, water problems, etc. But, I slept confortably, dry and safe! Thank you for your prompt service and for production of a very good product!

Disposition of Poles in High Winds
Since there is a review below critical of this tent's performance in high winds, I think it worth mentioning that when pitching for windy conditions the poles should be inserted in their terminal holes such that they are at maximum tension, thus giving the criss-crossing pole structure its maximum stability by virtue of enhanced mutual reinforcement. Effective staking also contributes to tent stability in high wind.

please add this to my review just submitted: An additional significant benefit of this tent is that The North Face is very easy to deal with when it comes to warranty claims. If anything goes wrong with the tent my experience has shown that they will promptly handle it properly with no problems.
