Seach Latta Outdoors for The North Face Boulder 33.

"Eight pounds seems heavy until you see how big this tent is. So far, this is my favorite tent for multi-person trips. Three of us were still on speaking terms, after a week of rain in Olympic National Park, thanks to the headroom, 95-inch length, and the huge front door. A full-coverage rain fly with a large vestibule is a must-have here in the Pacific Northwest. This tent has a both. You can also pitch this tent with just the rain fly and ground cloth."

"So true! This tent is roomy and comfy. I bought one for family trips and I can see why it received Backpacker's 2004 best buy for 3 season, 3 person tents. The combo of pole sleeves and pole clips allows air to move more freely under the rain fly. Great views out of the HUGE front door. Lots of storage under the fly. I agree, it is a little heavy, but you can split up the heavier gear between the three of you."

"My buddies and I used this tent to base-camp on a series of day hikes around Mt. Hood, Oregon. Great tent for three. Lots of room inside and under the vestibule. Lots of head& foot room."

"First of all, this is not a 4 season tent, but I used it anyway on a new year's trip to Mt. Adams. Thanks to the multiple guy-lines, it was steady as a "boulder" as the clock hit midnight and the winds got fierce. Of course, the mesh body made it EXTREMELY COLD inside the tent but my buddy and I were impressed that it withstood the weather. The large vestibule worked great for cooking under and the double door allowed both of us to take off our snowshoes at the same time. I would recommed this tent but I don't think TNF makes it anymore."

"Great quality, fantastic amount of room. Definitely recommended for tall and large people who are seeking a great all-round tent. Not too heavy either considering the amount of space. Fly-only pitching is an excellent option"

"Excellent tent for the family. We used ours in the Boundry Waters Canoe Area and loved it. Lots of room, and the fly kept our gear dry outside. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a 3 or 4 person tent."

"Are there two versions of the "Boulder"? Mine is a 2 or 3 person (not familysize), about 4 foot tall inside. Good sturdy tent though, dry design,
vestibule opens 2 ways for 2 doors, has room for 2 packs. About 8+ lbs. Tent does freestand, but fly needs to be staked/tied down for optimum performance in bad weatherweather."
