- Great tent.
- At 6'2", 240 lbs. it is difficult to find a tent that is both backpackable and roomy. This tent fills the bill. First night out with this tent it poured rail all night. The tent remained totally dry. Love the two vestibules; great for storing gear out of the rain.
- Solid, double up the middle.
- The Drifter tents are a solid effort from Mountain Hardwear. They don't standout in any special way, but hit all the basics well. They aren't the lightest or toughest, mostly they are a great value for the price. The new Dry Pitch feature is a nice plus and the price includes the footprint. They are roomy length and width wise and have above average size vestibules. Good entry level or budget friendly tent that will last.
