        Comments about The North Face Rock 32 Tent:

        I have used this tent for three years now and thats six weeks use, mostly at about 8000ft elevation. I was dismayed at first by all the netting, I am used to the main tent body having some substance but came to like this tents ventilation. The fresh air is great while sleeping, moisture is not trapped in the tent and the tent drys out very quickly when the sun shines and air moves through the tent. It has endured daily thunderstorms some of them downpours and hail with no problems. It is not a tent I would take above treeline. Two people and a medium dog are cramped I would call it a two person tent.

            A good value for a North Face product, all around a
            very good tent. Although for 3 people it's a little
            tight but that seems to be the deal with most
            of the "3 person" tents out there.

              Comments about The North Face Rock 32 Tent:

              The Rock 32 is an excellent product.

              HOW I USE IT:
              I go to the BWCAW annually, as well as take fishing, backpacking and car camping trips as much as I possibly can; and this tent can do it all.

              FEATURES:
              I can't emphasize enough how simple this tent is to set-up. The DAC Press-Fit poles are color coded, environmentally friendly, and extremely easy to put together and bend into place; they also feel very sturdy. The clips are durable, and loft the canopy in seconds. The canopy and fly are color coded as well, so you don't waste anytime figuring out which way the fly goes. The brow pole that holds the fly up and creates the vestibule has Ball Cap Clips that are SO much better than fabric sleeves in other tents. Once set-up, the gear attic is large enough for stuff sacks, headlamps, extra socks, hats, Camelback etc. and I would estimate can hold 7-10 lbs of gear very easily. There are four generously sized "overhead" pockets located in each corner, and they're large enough for a glasses case, contact supplies, wallet, and cell phone plus room to spare. The zippers are SILKY smooth, and make one-handed access a breeze. The vestibule zippers have one for venting, and one for access, with velcro keeping the fly material securely over the zippers (keeping your gear dry!). There are also reflective strips at the bottom that make night-time visibility easier, and a nice loop and hook system that allow you to roll up one half of the vestibule for venting or easy access.

              PERFORMANCE:
              This tent performs admirably in all situations I've used it in. It remained solid and dry through a thunderstorm with 40-50 mph wind and torrential downpours that left an inch of water between my tarp and the tent (felt like a water bed in the morning). It is warm enough for sub-freezing temperatures with a decent mummy bag, yet ventilates well enough for sound sleep on the muggiest summer nights.

              THE ONLY CON:
              This COULD be used as a three person tent, BUT you would have to forgo sleeping pads and alternate your foot-to-head orientation (as well as be literally VERY close friends). Ample room for two however.

              OVERALL:
              It might be a little heavy for an extremely minimalist backpacker, but that weight is put into high-quality materials for a well designed, sturdy tent. I HIGHLY recommend this tent.

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              MATTHEW T  I have always had good luck with The North Face products (my Cicada tent from 1993 is still my favorite). The Rock 32 is a great tent for 3 season camping with good quality and great ventilation.
