    A freestanding dome for almost any outing.

    For your family's first camping outing or for your yearly trip to the monster musical festival, the three-season, four-person Mountainsmith Genesee 4 Tent provides much-needed shelter for you and your sleepy companions. Its rain-shedding fly and fully seam-taped bathtub floor help keep your group dry during summer storms, and with two doors and vestibules, there's plenty of space to store muddy shoes and packs.
    • PU coating on the floor and fly and fully taped seams keep the rain at bay
    • Breathable mesh doors, walls, and fly vents fight condensation through the muggy morning hours and keep out bugs when used without a fly
    • The 7000-series aluminum alloy Yunnan Poles stand up to abuse without weighing down your pack
    • Simplified design features clear instructions on the stuff sack, and color-coded clips on the tent and poles ensure easy assembly
    • Dual vestibules allow you and your partner your own space for boots and packs
    • Reflective guy lines stabilize the tent in wind and remain visible during nighttime trips to the bush
    • Detachable ceiling loft helps dry wet layers and can be removed to take advantage of the 52-inch-high headroom
    • Mesh storage pockets keeps your headlamp handy
    • Item #MOU0183

    Terrific for the price

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    We have several high-end backpacking tents, but wanted something a little bigger for car camping (annoying dogs). This tent has done the job admirably. I don't think the construction is any worse than the MSR and Big Agnes tents we've spent 3 to 4 times the amount on. The only drawback is that the fly isn't quite as waterproof as other tents I've had. A little extra seam seal applied to the stitching on the tie-down points and vents is worth the time.

    Mountainsmith Genesee 4 Tent

    Mountainsmith brings its 30+ year heritage in the outdoors to the tent category. Our Genesee 4 person tent features a robust 56 sq ft of interior usable space, creating more versatility for those family outings. Add in the value of our removable gear loft and set-up instructions printed on the stuff sack and you've got a 3 season tent that performs way beyond it's price tag.

    LOVE THIS TENT!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    My husband and I absolutely love this tent. Lightweight and very durable. It is surprisingly easy to set up and we have plenty of room. Could fit five in there if there were children.

    good little tent

      Ive had this tent for 12 months and have used it for family backpacking in the Beartooths, Swan Range, the Montana Rocky Mountain front and on a smith river float trip. No problems. The fly covers adequately and the tent sets up quick and easy. Fits our family of 2 adults and 2 kids fine. We've had some heavy hail storms, wind and downpour and high country exposure. We've stayed dry. IN good weather its basically a mosquito net canopy with good star gazing. This tent doesnt make an issue out of itself. Its a classic.

      Hands down best and lightest for the cost

        Not really a whole lot to say. Great build quality. You wont find another tent this size/weight/quality anywhere near this price. The Big Agnes Copper Spur 4 person is the only other tent near these specs and it costs about $500. The fly creek is cheaper and lighter than the Copper Spur but way smaller. You could also go with a tarptent or golite, but you're still pay much more than this for a non free standing tent.

        Tent sets up extremely easily, instructions printed on the storage bag as well. 2 poles and a tie down rainfly. Steaks are solid v shaped aircraft aluminum spikes, the kind you would pay extra for. Breathes great as the tent itself is almost entirely mesh. Had 2 adults, a dog, and a 6 yr old and could have easily fit another adult in it. We went through a storm that dumped 3" of rain in one night and were bone dry. Even our shoes in the vestibule were dry through it. I'm 5'10" and can almost stand up in it.

        If you're looking for a family backpacking tent, this is about the only under 7 lb choice unless you want to drop $400 - $500 for a BA. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this one again.

        Would a queen air mattress(78X60) take up too much room in this tent. Looking for car camping comfort- two adults, one labrador.

        Hi there,

        does it come with footprint?

        Thanks,

        Calvin,



        Unfortunately this tent does not come with the footprint, that will be sold separately. At the moment we do not have those.



        This tent does come included with a gear loft for inside the tent.



        Shoot me an email if you have more questions!

        I am curious of anyone who owns this tent...

        I am curious of anyone who owns this tent can weigh it to get an "actual/real world" weight. The posted weights from the mfg might be stretching the truth given the size of this tent..
