Product Description Item No.   10268355

The North Face Assault 2 Tent is a single wall tent for high-altitude expeditions. The X-tent design is all about easy pitching and creating a strong structure to withstand the howling winds high up on the mountain. The 50D DryWall™ fabric is a strong polyester ripstop, with a 40D nylon ripstop, 3000mm PU coating, silicone water-resistant finish at the floor. The removable vestibule adds additional room for your gear, but the footprint and gear loft are both optional items sold separately. The single door opens wide for easy entry/exit, with an escape-hatch back door. The dual vents at the top provide a touch of airflow so you don't get stuffy while waiting out the storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tent Very roomy tent inside, great ventilation. No inside mesh pocket or gear loft. Gear loft is sold separately. Great tent for snow except for rain whereas the rain can get in the tent when you open the door. You will need shed to this tent to block all the snow and rain out of the doorway. Good news is that TNF comes with shed at no charge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Waterproof I purchased this tent thinking I was so much smarter then my friends with their fancy one single wall tents from other brands. The Assault 2 was lighter, and much cosier. The honeymoon didn't last. After a couple trips where this tent performed well in high winds, and was far more spacious than other tents I was pretty happy. Sure some condensation formed, but it's a single wall tent. What do you expect. I took it on a mountaineering trip. Due to poor weather we stayed in the valley. Rain battered all night. In the morning I awoke to a cool sensation. My whole tent was flooded. There was at least 4 litres of water, if not more in the tent. Careful inspection of the walls revealed the problem. The seams were fine. The walls themselves were dripping. Not from condensation, but from wetting out completely. Assuming that this tent just hadn't been treated in factory with the final membrane, a common enough mistake, I attempted to warranty it. I was informed this tent was for extreme alpinism only, and that I just didn't understand condensation. a) If it's only for extreme alpinism then why bother with mosquito netting, and don't most extreme alpine adventures begin in the valley? b) I'm pretty sure a 140lb male can't create 3- 4 litres of condensation in a 8 hour period. I was hoping this purchase would redeem North Face in my eyes. It only confirmed to me that North Face is not what it used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of, if not the best at what it is. It's small, fast, protective, has vents and is light - perfect if you use it for what its meant for and you are good with the single wall trade off. Again, one of the best at what it is, period.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from "LIFETIME GUARANTEE" ???? NOT I would use this product if I absolutely knew it wasn't going to snow or rain.I like it because the tent wall is solid all around (no mesh).Great for helping to keep warm air inside in cold weather. Don't like it because the poles bent after high winds and snow piling up and I was soaked inside after the snow began to melt. The warm tent wall caused the snow to melt and droplets of water formed inside. Little by little everything inside the tent including myself was wet in the cold. I had to wake up at 2 am to pack everything inside my backpack and wait for first light to cancel our trip and go home. I thought it would at least provide better protection from snow. Apparently it's ONLY for 16,000 ft. or higher. Where the snow won't have a chance to become water. I'm not going to experiment and take this tent with me when I do go to Denali or anywhere high though. I'm just not sure it's going to keep me dry. If I have to wait out a storm, and my tent wall is warm from me being inside, and the snow begins to melt..then what.. ???NOPE SORRY, I'll just get something else. I really thought THE NORTH FACE Assault 2 was going to be my favorite tent... light, functional, strong... and advertised as having DryWall. Misleading name to give material that isn't waterproof. But ok, so it's not waterproof... my fault for sure... silly me for thinking DryWall meant waterproof. Here's what really made me decide to really think about buying any more TheNorthFace equipment. I sent the tent for warranty service. My poles bent after a strong wind storm. Customer service suggested I bring the tent to an official TheNorthFace store to ship it for free, and it would be faster than bringing it to a distribution store. Ok, I drive the extra 50 miles and bring it to East Hartford, CT Westfield shopping center. There it sits for almost 3 weeks. Finally get a call from warranty after it ships, they state no defects found. I ask if I can buy the poles, they say NO, and ship back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good in rain at all The Assault 2 has no rain fly and was extremely leaky in a 1" rainfall (never a downpour but steady over 24 hours or so). How does one design a tent these days with no rain fly? There were pools of water everywhere, so it's definitely not a four-season tent. Not even a one season if you're expecting to stay dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tent for mountaineering. My first impression with the tent is the vestibule that no other tents come with it. Secondly, the body tent is roomy inside with many ample tabs to hang just about anything. I have bought gear loft, of course. I'm a big fan of one door entry to eliminate the weight of the tent. I love the escape-hatch and all opened vents to pressurize evenly inside/outside of the tent to keep the tent strong. I have no issue with condensation inside my tent if you open the vents properly. Vestibule really comes handy to keep the snow/rain out the main door entry and to store things outside. I must stay that I like the zipper glows at night. This tent keeps me warm all night. I hope this tent will last me a lifetime which I am very sure of its quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No! Perfect tent! Except the fabric on the canopy will not take a rain squall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snug shelter on Mt. Rainier After too many years cobbling together snow shelters - I researched many single-wall options and settled on this tent. It includes the vestibule (most other options do not), which is very functional and very easy to attach.The guy lines are effective and easy to tension. I used a total of 12 SMC snow anchors; 8 to secure the tent, plus 4 to secure the vestibule.The conditions = moderate winter temperatures (mid 20's to mid 30's), windy (sustained ~20 mph / gusts ~30 mph), pellet snow, and large flakes (~ 10 inches total over 3 days). It was easy to limit moisture in the tent by using the the meshed/zippered vents at the crown. The small pole-supported awnings kept the vents snow-free while the winds were low and snow falling vertically. When the winds increased, I just closed the vent facing the wind. The rear window was closed almost the entire 3 days. The front door was left partially open most of the time because the vestibule was so effective. The side skirts on the vestibule were key to limiting snow incursion on the sides, while the front skirt was hanging freely into a foot-well. A limited amount of snow tumbled into the front of the foot-well, but none got into the tent through the front door, nor onto boots and other gear stored a few inches away from the front of the vestibule. I'm 6 feet tall with broad shoulders, so this 2-person tent was a good choice for me and most of my gear. I had plenty of room to sit up, change clothes, and unpack/pack. It was easy change wet and snowy footwear outside the tent but inside the vestibule.I just dangled my legs into the foot-well while seated at the front door of the tent. Breakdown was fast and easy - the vast majority of the time was spent excavating snow anchors. I plan to use this tent in the summer on a week-long bike ride. I expect the tent to ventilate well with the vents, window, and door all open. Are you looking for a single-wall, weatherproof, lightweight, & very effective shelter? Consider this tent!
