Pros & Cons
The Mountainsmith Morrison 2 Person 3 Season Tent offers comfortable sleeping space for your short or long camping trips. The breathable PU-coated polyester fly material provides reliable 3 season weather protection. The aluminum V-stakes easily penetrate in hard grounds and well sewn taped seams helps the tent to self-stand in all weather conditions. Its reflective guy lines with tension lock cord adjustment increase stability and performance in stormy weathers. The tent features color coded footprints, stake loops, poles and fly clips for easy setup. It features a robust 35 sq. ft. of interior usable space can comfortably sleep two adults. The intuitive set-up, dual doors and dual vestibules allow you to enter and exit without disturbing your tent mate. Ceiling loft pocket and mesh storage pockets keep gears organized and close to hand. No-see-um mesh and walls with fly ventilation windows panels keeps uninvited bugs out. The tent can easily be split into two parts to share the carrying load.
However, the major concern was that the tent needed more stakes. The 6 stakes that accompany the tent are enough to stake all four corners and the two guy lines, but leaves nothing for your rain fly. Or vice-versa, stake your rain fly and leave nothing for your guy lines. The other concern was the aluminum stakes has a tendency to bend in hard ground and you'll be looking for replacements sooner rather than later. Also, some campers felt that the tent cannot fit 2 big built adults.
Overall, The Mountainsmith Morrison 2 Person 3 Season Tent is highly recommended as a great entry level tent for its lightweight, well-constructed looks, attractive color and durability. It would be hard to find a tent with same kind of features for such a great price. It is an ideal companion for any short or long camping trips.
