The North Face Assault 3 Tent: 3-Person 4-Season


Product Details

Sleep soundly at high altitudes with The North Face's 4-Season Assault 3 Tent protecting you from fierce winds. DryWall fabric equips the Assault with the protection you'd expect out of a single-wall tent but with more breathability and stability than standard single-walls. An easy-pitch X-tent design equalizes pressure from high winds by back filling the interior for a stronger structure. PU-coated ripstop reinforces the floor and vestibule with reliable resistance against abrasion and water. The North Face equipped the Assault 3 with DAC Featherlite NSL poles that live up to their featherlight status. Removing the roomy vestibule helps you shed weight on your elevated adventures. There's a large single door in the front, and the back door doubles as an escape hatch for extra protection in snowy environments. Dual top vents work with the DryWall fabric to provide unparalleled breathability, and there are ample tabs inside for hanging gloves, drying lines, or gear lofts.

Price : $ 518.95

Winter Tents Checklist

Quality? Thankfully, most four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
Don't Get Too Big! Due to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number of people.
Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it), will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes, it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
Convertible Tents? There are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season use.
If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
