Product Description

The new Vario 23 is a roomy, two-person tent combining both single and double-walled construction for added stability. Weighing less than two kg., the Vario is freestanding and easy to pitch even in the wildest weather. Thanks to the Spectrum lift technology, the Vario boasts significantly enhanced ventilation capacity, by permitting airflow at the top of the tent. Of course, a fully taped ultra light floor and a seam-sealed canopy keep the elements outside. (By The North Face)


Lift technology employs two upper vents that enable tent to work with the wind; wind passes through and lifts tent slightly increasing its stability

DAC® reverse-combi pole system maximizes headroom and comfort by using different diameter poles

DAC Featherlite® NSL poles have a unique insert that saves weight, reduces breakage and creates a stronger, more functional pole

Fully sealed canopy and floor ensures full-on weather protection

Clip construction offers quick setup; Ultralight Microclips™ are lightweight and super strong

Mesh window and D-shaped door combine with upper "lift vents" to provide superior cross ventilation

Convenient freestanding design; pull-out front vestibule and rear pull-out (not a vestibule) also help keep fresh air circulating

Internal pockets organize small necessities
