      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

TNF Roadrunner 2 tent

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with the Roadrunner 2 tent from The North Face? Seems like it is getting good reviews around the web. Also, could anyone recommend a good radar detector to use for my summer climbing trip around the west? I'm going all the way to bishop and then vegas and would like to drive REALLLLY fast all the way there!

I got a TNF roadrunner 2 through a deal, but would not buy it retail. The seams are not sealed and are a bitch to do by hand. The upper pole/canopy deal is awkward. Tent is spacious and relatively light, but the MEC Tarns are a much better deal. (make friends with someone at a TNF dealer -- the deals ALMOST make TNF gear worthwhile). wink.gif" border="0

I used to work for the Face and am very familiar with the Roadrunner. It is actually seam-taped (every TNF tent since about 1997 is, unless it's perhaps a factory 2nd). Anyhow, it's great tent at a moderate to high price. Easy pitch, good ventilation. Probably do good for you on your roadtrip!Radar Detectors: 2 words.....BEL 980It will easily pay for itself in one road trip. You can find 'em on the web for under $200

Hope that helps.
