Product Highlights

With dual doors, a roomy interior and watertight construction, the Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2 DP backpacking tent is an excellent choice for 3-season backpacking. Easy to set up and boasting user-friendly features like fly-first pitching, dual doors and an included footprint, the Drifter 2 DP delivers excellent value at a budget-oriented price.

The Drifter 2 DP weighs in at 4 pounds 11 ounces and offers 32 square feet of usable interior space. Dual vestibules combine to provide additional sheltered space for wet gear and muddy boots. Clip construction makes it easy to connect the fabric body of the Drifter 2 DP to the DAC press-fit aluminum poles. Mountain Hardwear guarantees watertight construction; the taped seams and welded construction of the Drifter 2 DP have been tested in a custom-made "rain room" which subjects the tent to 1200 inches of wind-driven rain over the course of 24 hours.

The Drifter 2 DP offers DryPitch fly-first pitching, which lets you set up the tent fly with the poles and included footprint first so you can get out of wet weather quickly. The body of the tent can then be clipped into the pole structure from underneath the rain fly, keeping the tent dry. This DryPitch configuration also allows the Drifter 2 DP to be used without the tent body, creating a 3 pound 6 ounce shelter from wind and wet weather on fast and light trips.

Mesh and nylon construction in the walls of the tent body combats the build-up of condensation and offers maximum ventilation. Reflective highlights and guy out loops provide visibility for those times when you need to set up after dark.

A custom-fit footprint is included to protect the floor of the Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2 DP against rocks, exposed roots, mud and ground water.
