Didn't like the details
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
There were several details of this tent that I did not like. The fly attaches to the tent at the end of the poles with a piece of bent plastic that clips over a bar. It is hard to get on and hard to get off. I frequently camp in the cold and this would be a pain. I also question whether it would get brittle and break and there would be no way to deal with it in the middle of a trip. The ploes are hinged together and the tent attaches to this plasic hinge (dry pitch feature). Other tents do this and it may be durable but I prefer to clip directly to the poles. The clips that attach the the tents to the poles are not as quality as other tents. There also is no strap/loop for the tent stakes to go into, only string loops.
Just what I needed

The Drifter 4 DP is an excellent tent. Yes it is a bit heavy for the trail but I wanted a tent for the trail head instead. The Drifter is very comfortable for 2 to 3 people with tall ceiling and the two vestibules are awesome. Just like my smaller Mountain Hardwear tent, the rain flap comes down to the bottom of the tent to keep the rain and wind out. I have used it mostly it in Colorado but not enough to predict the durability but if it is like my other MH tent, it should last for a long time. The Drifter takes minutes to put up and tears down and rolls up easy. I definitely recommend the Drifter 4 tent. Chive On!
