I've read a lot of good reviews on TNF Mountain 25, but the footprint looks like it may be a tight fit for someone tall. Any experience or recommendations??
Hi, yeah, I'm interested in the same, but I'm not so tall. There are a couple of threads you might want to check out on this topic:

They seem nice and they are light. Why carry the weight if you don't have to? The North Face stuff is heavy. I'm looking to find the right combination of light weight and strength.
