    Bought mine in 1992 and it has been through Europe, AK to Baja, coast to coast US and a lot of areas not listed.
    Broke a pole once and even though out of production, North Face fabricated one on the spot at no charge. Now that is standing behind your product!

    Yep. And the timing sounds about right. I think mine was around '92 also. That was the OLD North Face. I had the Mountain jacket they replaced for me. Back when they had the lifetime warranty. I am sure you know. That was a different company. For years now, they are more upscale for people who want to look like they go outdoors.

    1995 strolled into the Berkeley facility after breaking the fabricated pole . Guy told me to have a seat and 35-40 minutes later handed me the pole and said "should have never broken, on the house" (didn't know about lifetime warranty). I've tried to go back there as often as possible when in the Bay Area as they sold stuff at discount prices, but around 1998 or so it had shuttered up. Had me as customer for life after that perfect service experience....until about a year ago when my bag, which I purchased in 1986, finally failed me. Went the Big Agnus route as better bang forth buck for me.

    Funny. I also have a BA. Single man tent. Only used it a couple of times though. Unlike the North face tent which I used the hell out of.

    The only other tent that I have used as much was a weirdo 4 season tent called Quest Preying Mantis 4S. Great 4 season tent but heavy as hell and took a set of burglar tools to setup. It was huge and had an enormous vestibule to cook in and strong as hell. They haven't made it for years but it was my goto tent for winter camping in the White mountains and Adirondacks. Never had to worry about the weight because I usually had a sled I would pull in the winter.

    Good reason to carry Dr Bronners soap as you can use it to wash everything

    My Vaude tent has served me well but is past it's prime, the aluminium poles break every now and then, as shown in this photo.
