A unique two-person, three-season tent with plenty of living space

A review of the North Face Minibus two-person, three-season tent from Canoeroots & Family Camping magazine.

Of the tents we tested, the Minibus is the easiest to set up with its color-coded poles and webbing pitch system. It’s more than big enough for two with two huge vestibules to swallow your gear. Interior side wall mesh pockets have innovative zippered access allowing campers to fetch items from inside or outside the tent without opening one of its two doors.

Minibus-no-fly

The full fly offers excellent coverage and protection from cold and wet, while all-mesh walls provide ample ventilation. With five pole crossings and a unique, low profile ventilation system that will not flap in the wind, this tent provides comfort even in the most adverse elements.

CAPACITY: 3
