The North Face Talus 4 Tent is a four person tent for group camping and a bit of backpacking. The Talus 4 pitches with three poles and attaches with clips so camp is ready in a flash. The two doors make entry and exit of four people simple, less crawling over each other. A ground tarp is included to increase the life of the seam-taped bathtub style floor that won't leave you laying in a puddle of water if it rains. More people means more stuff, so the included gear loft keeps books and headlamps off the ground and safe from getting stepped on. Enjoy dry evenings as air flows through the mesh paneling or throw the rain fly over top to protect from a down pour, which will also create two vestibules for dry gear storage. Luxury in the woods.

Good all around tentI purchased this tent in hopes of being able to use it as a car camping for 2 / heavy backpacking tent for more than 2 people. Haventer had the pleasure of taking it backpacking yet but it is perfect for car camping. Fits a queen air mattress with about 6 inches to spare on each side vestibules are awesome and ventilation with vestibules open was very nice.

Great tent for the priceIt's a great 3 season tent, nicely constructed and fairly rigid. I wouldn't want to sleep in it with winds over 35 mph.

Great tent - if it's not windy.Bought this tent just before our camping trip on Sept. 15, 2015 to the Badlands and the Black Hills in SD. Here are my opinions:
1. Very roomy for 2 persons. OK for three. Quite tight for four. There were only two of us so we enjoyed lots of room. My wife and I are quite tall - I'm 74". We were easily able to stretch out along the long dimension of the tent. Our air mattresses are 78" long and fit nicely.
2. Set up was fairly easy. The enclosed directions are just a series of pictograms; nothing written. After a couple of minutes of head scratching I was able to figure it all out. The poles are unusual in that all three poles are permanently connected by two swivel joints. When the poles are expanded and laid on top of the collapsed tent they form a big H. Once you figure this out the rest of the setup is straightforward. The included groundcloth is cut exactly the size of the tent floor and has identical loops on the corners. The rainfly fits snugly and completely covers the tent. This limits air circulation but does a VERY good job keeping out the rain. You can unzip a flap on each side of the rainfly to improve ventilation. If it starts raining it's quick and easy to zip these flaps closed. We had a light rain one night and absolutely not a single drop made it inside the tent.
3. Wind performance. The first night in the tent, in the Badlands at about 11 p.m. the wind picked up to 15-20 mph with gusts to 25. Quite windy. It was blowing directly on the corner of the tent where my head and shoulders were and each time it gusted the tent basically collapsed on that corner. I spent two hours propping up that corner of the tent with my arms as the wind fought to push the tent down on top of me. Not a good night's sleep for me. I believe that the H arrangement of the poles is not sufficiently rigid in windy conditions to keep the tent fully upright. Additionally, the guy lines on each corner of the tent tended to loosen up in the wind.
4. Zippers, seams and hardware all seem rugged and able to handle continued use. The poles are small and lightweight, but very strong. They didn't suffer any permanent damage due to the wind. Everything packs up nicely into a bundle that should be easy to backpack. I think everything weighs in at about 7-8 pounds.
All in all an excellent tent. Minus one star for wind performance.

is this tent only 26" wide?
Asked by: mariner
The 26 inch spec shown is actually for the packed size of this tent. Fully assembled this tent measures 90 x 80 inches.
