The North Face Built A Backpacking Tent With Innovative Futurelight Fabric

Oct 16, 2019

Category: Gear

Always at the forefront of outdoor gear innovation, The North Face has only recently introduced their lightweight, breathable, waterproof Futurelight technology to the public. And while it made its debut in apparel, the brand has already incorporated it into a mountaineering shelter with the Assault 2 Futurelight Tent.

With enough space for two people, this single-walled expedition tent has a trail weight of just three pounds and four ounces. And while other tents of a similar weight and construction might cower in the face of inclement weather, this one was made to withstand the harshest of conditions and even reduces condensation buildup in severe humidity. It also boasts a removable vestibule, has a single main door and a rear escape hatch, and has plenty of internal tabs to hang gear to dry between adventures. Complete with a lifetime warranty, this backpacking tent is available now for $659.

Purchase: $659
