I just got the MountainSmith Morrison 2 Tent at what I believe is a great deal for a lightweight, reliable, backpacking tent that can reliably fit 2 adults and gear or a dogl. It retails at 179.95 and although several places have it in the $145 range, Campmor is allowing their 20% off code to be applied even though it is not a full-price item on the site.

the Alps Mountaineering Zenith is the best lightweight 2-person tent for the price.

Was just about to complete my purchase via Sierra Trading however, side note for anyone considering, while the 30% discount did apply (thanks for this), there is a $12 S&H charge bringing my total to $102.

I would like to disagree. I hike with a half dome 2 which is almost 5 lbs. Plenty of people hike with ~5lb tents. It's when they get to 8-10lbs that they get ridiculous.

There aren't many ~3lb 2 person tents that cost less than $300. Also, they tent (get it?) to give you less space (vestibule space is significant too) and are more delicate.

I think 5lb tents are a good middle ground. yeah, it's heavy, but I tend to bring too much fishing gear anyways so it's not my main problem. look around

so between Alps Mountaineering Zenith and the Mountainsmith Morrison 2 - which one would you folks recommend ? The price difference is not as much so I'm trying to understand which is better quality.

I think this is sort of a to each his own. For me, I'm 6'4 220 with muscle and I would never take the Zenith unless I was with my petite gf. To clarify, the packed weight is 4lb 11oz vs 4lb 8oz, so 3 oz difference, not 1 pound, I'm sure you couldn't notice the difference. The Morrison isn't a closeout (in the event you need something like a new footprint on the Zenith, it, might be harder to get) and has less described warranty exceptions. 35 sq ft floor vs 31 with a peak height of 43" vs 38". I camp in warm weather and sometimes with male friends. I don't want to share our sweat and like the easy overhead lighting option as well. Of note, the footprint on the Morrsion (for floor protection) is $8 more than the Zenith and the pack size is slightly larger. Of course, if you are through hiking a 2 o4 3lb tent is better. If you want to save $150 and not worry about guylines, etc., I think it's a great tent.

there is free shipping on orders of $100+ so you just have to add $10 worth of items. but it looks like it's out of stock now.

Sorry, but the 4lb 13oz is the "Minimum Trail Weight" which is only the tent body, fly, and poles. The packaged weight is 5lb. 8oz which would be everything that you're carrying on your back including the tent stakes, stuff sacks, guylines, etc. Outdoor Gear Lab measured the weight to be 5lb. 7oz in their article shown here: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Backpacking-Tent-Reviews/Mountainsmith-Morrison-2

it's a 5lb 2-person tent. when you split that up between two people it's 2.5 lbs per person which is perfectly manageable while hiking.
