/ TNF Mountain 25 for Scottish Winter?
i'm looking at the TNF Mountain 25 to replace a Quasar. i've heard mixed reviews, including that its biased towards US conditions and isn't built to cope with the typical horizontal rain of the West Coast in March that we all know and love.
i'd love to say that its going to get lots of Alpine use, but really its going to be winter rain, sleet and snow and high winds...
any experiences, good or bad?
From what I can tell they seem tough, but heavy, maybe over engineered/too heavy. If I was going to the Himalayas I'd look more at the TNF/Mountain HW stuff, but I'm liking the look of the new Alpkit 2 person 4 season tent, they seem to get good reviews and are a reasonable price(but not extortionate - like the TNF mountain 25.
P.S. theres someone on UKC selling a TNF 25 at the moment!
I emailed you about the Mountain 25 I have for sale.
You could do worse though than look at Macpac tents- a good range to choose from and designed for horrid wet weather:
