Show Description

Heading to high places with a teammate or two? The North Wind 2.5 is light enough for fast-in, fast-out missions, yet is surprisingly comfortable, thanks to almost vertical sidewalls and a generous front vestibule. The shape is less streamlined than a full-on expedition tent, but the living area feels spacious and has excellent ventilation. This new generation is lighter by a few hundred grams and has U-shaped doors that open wide and stronger, reflective guy lines.

  • Zip-out skylight in canopy top is adjustable for air circulation.
  • Two vestibules: the deeper one makes a good storage or cooking area, the other is an excellent airlock for exits and entries.
  • Pole clips allow quick set-up and good ventilation.
  • New U-shaped doors in canopy improve ventilation.
  • Guy lines are stronger, reflective, and have mitt-friendly tensioners.
  • Pegs are a mix of Easton Gold round pegs for easy driving, and Y cross-section aluminum pegs for maximum strength and holding power.
  • Internal guy line anchors for rigging in extreme conditions.
