Description of the North Face Rock 22 Tent

Built as a three season tent, many backpackers have said the North Face Rock 22 Tent performs better as a two season camping tent. While it works well in colder tempetures, freezing conditions seem to cause condensation inside the rain fly. For those of you who will be camping up north or in colder climates, you might want to check out some of the other camping tents I suggest. But if you only plan on camping in the warmer months then you should have no problem getting along with the North Face Rock 22 Tent.
