The North Face Phoenix 3 Tent - 2012 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byBrandon in DenverfromSize without WeightI bought this as part of a mountain survival kit to be carried in a single-engine aircraft. I required a kit 20lbs or less and I wanted some kind of shelter that offered wind and water protection. It had to be light and capable of sheltering four people.
This tent is under 5 lbs packed - one of the lightest floored tents I could find in this size. This can shelter four in a pinch, although it is more comfy for three. The single hull (no fly) keeps weight down and pitching simple while still being appropriate for three seasons and the fourth season in an emergency.
The only drawback, if that's even the right word, is that the doors are half mesh with no closeable flap. I'd have preferred sealable doors that can just be zipped shut regardless of whether the vestibules (one over each door) are staked out or not - that would conserve heat better. In this design you have to stake out the vestibules to provide your 'seal' - so the vestibules are required for full wind protection and that means more volume to warm and more loss of heat. Not a huge complaint especially if you use this is as it is designed - as a 3-season tent.
Overall it is a good size for the weight and pitching was fast without a fly to mess with.

Rated5out of5byRather be outsidefromSo Far so goodBought this at a discounted price on the Outlet. Also used my members only 20% off - great price!. I set it up in the back yard. I will take it backpacking this summer. So far, I am impressed by it's light weight, roominess, and easy set up. I have not yet had the chance to put it to the real test in the wilderness yet. I am hiking the chilkoot trail this summer with it. I will let you know how it goes.
