North Face Mica FL 2
MSRP: $379.00 (thenorthface.com)
If you’re weight conscious to the degree of a backpacker and travel in three-season conditions, the Mica FL 2 is an excellent choice. We had one pitched in 60-knot gusts in the Grand Ronde River Canyon recently, and it held up fine while the wind ripped a new MSR tarp neatly in half. The full-mesh body keeps air fresh, and near vertical walls help with livability. Two vestibules are handy for dry bags. Great cool tent for hot weather, excellent feature-versus-weight ratio. Love the colors.
