camping trip in wasatch-cache national forest

Sturdy, simple, zippers = so-so

Used this tent twice now, once in the desert and once in the mountains here in Utah.

Easily stood up to howling winds in the desert without folding. Vestibule space is ample for a couple duffel bags and shoes, and the design is simple and easy to set up. Not the smallest or lightest two person tent, but for the price you really can't do too much better.

Only qualm would be the zippers: they tend to jam easily and the zips on the doors have a bit of a tough time turning the D-shape corners when the tent is staked out nice and taught (not too taught though).

Now used this tent in some colder conditions on a bike trip to Stanley, ID. Performed great, but the zippers still tend to stick from time to time. IMO more like a 1.5+ person tent. Included gear loft has turned out to be pretty handy.

Year later update:
Tent performed well in Moab and Brian Head, fending off downpours without leakage on both accounts. Zippers are still sticky, and the gear loft is still useful. Pitching this tent nice and taught takes some practice to get the angles right. I'll probably be looking for a larger solution for me and my girlfriend, but I'll keep this one for solo car camping missions.

Tent worth every penny

This tent is great for two buds hittin' the trail on a week long trek. It's a little tight for two six foot guys but with the two vesties you can keep your gear nice and dry. The weight might worry a few of those lightweight backpackers. But with two guys carrying the tent it's not bad at all.

This tent is really similar to the Sojourn 2 released a few years ago, just wondering if the footprint for the drifter would match up?

I have an old Franklin Mondo crash pad, the dimensions are 48" x 72" unfolded and 48" x 36" folded. Will this crash pad fit through the screen door?

Does this tent have a bathtub style floor?

Responded on

It does not have a traditional "Bath Tub Floor" but the floor pattern is cut to keep the seams off the ground when pitched. All Mountain Hardwear tents come with a guaranteed watertight construction complete with a fully taped fly, taped perimeter seams, welded corners and welded guy clip anchors. All our tent designs are Rain Room tested as well and experience what would equate to over 1200" of rain in a 24 hour period. This tent will keep you dry! I hope this information helps.

Good purchase!

Easy set up, light weight. Good buy for the $.

Anyone have any good things to say about this tent? Both BC and REI are out of stock so either there is a recall or they are being snatched up because of the price and weight. For us hammock/bivy campers who are looking for a $ tent with tons of floor space this seems like a steal. 160$? Please I can spend more than that on drinks after a long hike. Better spent on expanding my gear closet.

Well, there is no recall. So, I assume that folks are snatching them up because it is a great tent at a great price! ENJOY! If you can find one...

I have this very tent and love it....tough to beat considering the price! and the fact that all Mtn Hrdwr tents are rain room tested! I bought mine for around $150 and have used it on 3 seperate backpacking trips this winter, sleeping about 9 days total in this tent. Its a fairly light "roomy" 2 person tent with dual doors and dual vaestibules! I highly doubt there is a better 2 man tent currently on the market in this price range???
