      Comments about The North Face Big Fat Frog 24 Tent:

      I would be careful with ordering this tent from this company. It is a great tent. I had one for years, it was recently stolen, and I ordered a replacement from Sunnysports thinking I was getting a great deal on this now-discontinued tent. It arrived just in time for a backpacking trip. Unfortunately, it was clearly used. Not just a once-returned item---used. Lots of signs of wear and even a nylon loop that has been replaced with non-original material. Now I find myself in the position of having to just accept the used tent that I need right away or find a last minute replacement and pay return shipping to Sunnysports per their return policy. I have emailed them and will update this review if they provide a good solution. Again, I have had good dealings with them in the past, but this situation is totally unacceptable.

        Comments about The North Face Big Fat Frog 24 Tent:

        This tent is perfect. I'm not sure what more expensive tents in this design offer but this does it all. It survived an extremely windy Chicago winter weekend with snow and sleet as a test. I was impressed and now use it at around 9000+ feet in Colorado. It made it through some pretty extreme winds and cold. Gusts on one trip had to exceed 40 mph and this tent barely flexed. It is cramped sleeping but that is to be expected in a small backpacking style tent (more than enough for me and my dog). The vestibule more than makes up for it. I couldn't recommend this tent enough. I would love to know what Hilleberg offers over this tent. I was looking at the Nallo2 and Nammatj2 but figured I'd try the Big Fat Frog first at a fraction of the price. So far I can't see any reason to spend 2-3 times the money.

        Good overall quality.

        Cons:
        Realy cheap and weak pegs. To much mesh in construction.

        No rep kit included, even no spare piece of fabric.

          Comments about The North Face Big Fat Frog 24 Tent:

          Got this tent earlier this year. Have gone on about 6 trips with it so far. I have mixed feelings about this tent. It doesnt really fit in any category well. A bit to heavy for backpacking, and to small for car camping. At this weight you could carry a 3 person tent. There are much lighter tents for less that still have a decent sized vestibule. As far as performance goes. This is where I found it suffered. During showers rain pooled on top of the tent even with constant adjusting of guy lines. I had water come though and soak my sleeping bag. Made for a really uncomfortable night. Plus I had to run out into the rain to tighten up the guy lines. Maybe the big vestibule is so u can dry off after having to crawl outside into the rain to try and stop the water from pooling on top of the tent. Tent ventilates ok, but just ok. Iv used other tents that ventilated much better. This tent is more suited for 1 person, than 2. My wife stayed in it with me a couple nights and she is only 5'4" 110. I am 5'10" 160. It was cramped without any gear inside. Overall I would not recommend this tent. There are much lighter and cheaper options out there that provide adequate vestibule space, better rain protection, and better ventilation.
