The North Face - Aguila 23 & 33 tents

Recommended Posts

I am looking at ordering a North face Aguila 23 two person, three season tent or an Aguila 33 three person, three season tent. They look like very nice tents having the mesh ceilings make them look comfortable during the summer plus a view of the night sky is a bonus. Has anyone use one of these tents, if so, are they worth the $?

I've generally found that North Face is over priced. Too many people (myself included) have come to know North Face of Abercrombie of the outdoor gear world.

From my experiences? Generally North Face makes a quality product but they are over priced. When I have been looking for gear North Face has something worth looking at but another company makes a slightly better product for a far better price.

And I write all of this as I sit here wearing a pair of North Face shorts. (The only reason i bought them was a super clearance)

I know that North Face stuff is usually over prices, but this tent has the specific design, especially with the open mesh top half for better air flow during the summer. Plus its better being able to fall asleep getting a view of the stars. If you know of any other kind of tent with the same features that can sleep 2 - 3 people, I would love to know the name and brand.

Just shop around a bit on the net. Put the product name into google and you can usually find a really good price.

There are alot of different 2 and 3 person, 3 season tents on the market today. Just depends what exactly you are wanting to which company you finally choose. Here's a link that I use when wanting to find the newest outdoor and remote camping equipment on the market. newest camping gear

What's nice is it gives also the price and places to buy from, also reviews on the product and gear.

Another tent that has the feature (looking at the stars) is made by Quest. I believe it's called the starlight...might want to double check that (model)but great quality product none the less. I use to have that tent when I lived in Flagstaff, AZ. It's also a two person tent. Perfect for yourself, dog and backpack! Good luck on your search.

I ended up ordering a North Face Aguila 23 tent off of [YouNeedAuthorization] about a month ago and have had the opportunity to use it and I must say that this is by far the best tent I have ever owned. The pole system keeps the tent sturdy and strong in higher winds and offers plenty of extra space for storage. I plan on using this tent frequently next year on mountain biking trips and especially for trout fishing. Thank all of you for the suggestion, but after reviewing other tentas, I found this one to be the best choice for me. Next thing I am looking to purchase is a good option for a spring/fall weather sleeping bag that is easy to stow.

Good to hear that you enjoyed the purchase of your new tent.

I have a 20 year old North Face tent, 3 person full season tent that is still going strong after all these years. Treat it well and store it clean and dry and it will last you many camping season's to come.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
