    The North Face Mica FL 1 Tent is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Well Designed I bought this tent because I needed an ultra lightweight one person shelter that was long enough for my height. I'm tall and slim: 6' 5", 170lb. The tent is long enough, but it is so narrow that I had trouble sleeping on my side -- it was impossible to "curl up" because there was not enough room. I hate the tent zipper; it is very poorly designed with two separate sections that meet in a low corner. I had ants and moths for company one night because I was not able to close the zipper completely in the dark. The first thing you will need to do after getting this very expensive tent it to buy another bag. The one that comes with it is ridiculously small. I have not yet used the tent in the rain, but I will be avoiding it because the waterproof floor does not go up high enough to block wind blown rain and splashes. I'm actually kind of shocked that this is made by North Face. I had a VE 24 for many years, and the Mica FL 1 is a major disappointment by comparison.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I <3 THIS TENT!!! If you ever are looking for a one person tent...this one is about perfect. I had the chance to recently field test it while on a canoeing trip and it worked out great. Packs down light and small, and i slept through about four hours of rain in it with no idea it had even started raining. And for a one person tent, as a taller man myself (6'3") the headroom was amazing and i had plenty of room to sleep. The nice thing is too, that unlike in my big tent, I never felt like I had to worry about falling off my pad, since it basically took up the floor with room for some small stuff at the top. It was a bit finicky to pack back in the bag the next day, but I am going to say that was probably me, since it takes me two attempts to roll up my sleeping pad. I am going on another trip in a few weeks here, and am looking forward to trying it with just the rain fly, and the footprint. I have a feeling I won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a one person, lightweight option, this is your guy. Doesn't weigh too much, and like i said, you can pitch it without the main body so you can save even a little bit more weight. Side notes: Stakes are nice and sturdy. With my Eureka I had to buy new ones that wouldn't brake, but no need to worry about it with this guy.
