Just bought this Mountain Hardwear Shifter 3 tent.

This is really the best deal out there on a tent suitable for backpacking. I like this tent because it is durable, versatile, relatively lightweight, comes with the ground sheet, strong, and fits me, my wife, and 2 dogs. If you are familiar with backpacking tents then you understand that a 2 person tent isn't very roomy. This tent is big enough for car camping or split the weight and hike in to your favorite spot. If you and your partner are slim then you can grab an even better deal with the Shifter 2. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality, price, and lifetime warranty on materials. Great deal!

This is an excellent deal on a very versitile tent. This would be a good tent if you expect to camp when it is rainy or windy.
Most tents suitable for backpacking come in about 2 lbs per nominal person. This tent is on the heavier side of that, but still within range. You can get much lighter tents, but they won't be as suitable for very heavy rains or wind.

The taller tents like you might get just for car camping don't hold up to wind as well as a low profile tent like this one.

If you are looking to outfit a Scout troop for Philmont, this would be an very good choice.

About 5 years ago I picked up the MH Drifter, which is the model the Shifter replaced. I got both the 2 person and 4 person versions. They have both been very good to me. I love how they hug the ground and stay stable in the wind. They are easy to pitch. You can hand it to anyone and they can figure it out. They ventilate well. They are freestanding and can be pitched on bare rock.

My ultralight REI tents are cool, but the MH tents I have are the workhorses. They weigh a bit more, but I really appreciate their versatility.

I, for better or for worse, knew exactly what this was from the title even if I didn't know the model beforehand. I expect to use it for backyard and campsite camping. Seems like a great deal that checks every box I didn't expect to check (gear loft, footprint, vestibules, taped seams) at this price point.

High five and thank you.

I wouldn't buy this specifically for backpacking. This is more of a well made car camping tent. Not for this price but you can find liter 3 person backpacking tents.

Before you get it, check this one: Mountain Hardwear Optic 3.5 Tent Bay Blue 3 Person https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DD0R...0Cb7634VDY

I have done lot of research before I picked a new tent. Views from this one are amazing. Lot of space, easy entry and still pretty compact.
