Product Highlights

With dual doors, a roomy interior of 35 square feet and watertight construction, the Mountainsmith Morrison 2  tent is an excellent choice for 3-season camping. Easy to set up and boasting additional features like reflective guylines, ventilation fly windows and internal mesh storage pockets, the Morrison 2 delivers excellent value at a budget-friendly price.

Weighing 4 pounds 13 ounces, the Morrison 2 offers 35 square feet of usable interior space. Dual vestibules combine to provide additional sheltered space in front of the Morrison 2's doors. This space is ideal for storing gear or wet, muddy boots.

Clip construction makes it easy to connect the fabric body of the Morrison 2 to the 7000 series aluminum alloy poles. Mountainsmith further ensures watertight performance with fully taped, bathtub floor construction. Mesh construction in the walls of the tent body reduces condensation and fly ventilation windows offers better breathability. Reflective guylines provide visibility for those times when you need to set up after dark.

    Likes: The tent was easy to set up and the color had an awesome glow to it. Just got back from the porcupine mountains and put it to the test. When fully staked out, it easily handled 30-40 mph winds, and that was on a fairly exposed escarpment. It also did well on the shores of Lake Superior during a mid October phantom storm. Plenty of room for myself and girlfriend. I'm 6'2 210 and she's 5'11 135. We had no issues with space inside. Get the footprint, if for nothing else as a moisture barrier. Plus, it can go ultra light with the footprint and fly.

    Dislikes: The vestibules are small, however after we removed the essentials there was room for both of our packs under one. So, it's a minor gripe. Stake it properly to get the most out of their smaller space. (Which you should anyways) not the lightest, but not back breaking either.

  • . Lake Ridge VA

    Likes: Easy to set up. Good amount of room for 2 people and equipment. Sets up quickly. Easy access from both sides. Each person can enter from their own side. Plenty of tie downs for keeping rain fly tight.

    Dislikes: A little heavy when just one person caries the whole thing. Not a light weight shelter but it is a sturdy shelter.

  • . Virginia Beach VA

    Likes: This tent is a little longer (92") than some 2-person backpacking tents we considered, my 5'11" husband had no problems with his feet touching the tent. The 2 doors are convenient, and set-up was a snap. The poles, fabric and construction seemed to be good quality. The poles fold up several times to a packed size of 18", which is a few inches shorter than some tents we considered. The headroom is good (43") for a backpacking tent.

    Dislikes: We decided not to keep this tent because of the vestibule design: they seemed small (even though for 2013 they have been enlarged some), and because the zippers are in the middle, and there's not a pole at the tent top that supports the vestibule with overhang, the angle when opened exposes the long edges and contents of the tent (sleeping bags) to rain. This could possibly be avoided by unzipping vestibules partially, but it's a tight squeeze to get in and out. We wanted to like this tent and keep it, but seems it rains half the time we camp so we looked at tents with different vestibule designs and settled on the Big Agnes Lynx Pass 2.

    Likes: Great tent for the money and well built, I especially like the two side access.

    Dislikes: I wish it included a footprint but have used several times without and no problems.

  • Bernard W. Brush Creek TN

    Likes: This tent is good size two of me would be tight but doable (i'm 5'11" and 210lbs). It is a great value for the size, quality, and features. First setup was quick 5-10 minutes!!! I am very pleased with the service from Backcountryedge. I will definitely use them in the future

    Dislikes: Nothing yet.

  • Annie D. Austin TX

    Likes: Great size for two people or for one with a lot of gear (that's me!). Has bathtub sides so a footprint isn't entirely necessary (there also isn't one available specifically for it). Hanging gear net is nice addition. Keeps up in colder temperatures, a true three season.

    Dislikes: Doesn't come with footprint, but it does have bathtub sides. Vestibule space a little lacking.

  • Adam Y. Norfolk VA

    Likes: This is large for a two man tent with extra length for head and feet. It is sturdy and stable and easy to set up right out of the box. Kept us perfectly dry over one very rainy night with just a minimal amount of condensation. Great tent so far!

    Dislikes: perfect so far

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: easy setup, packs small and light, dual entry doors are handy

    Dislikes: Vetibules are small, Vents on rain fly at peak both leaked during a good rainstorm

  • Joseph F. Eagle Mountain UT

    Likes: Lightweight for the size and money and very roomy, a true 2-man tent. Packs down very small as well, was very surprised to see that for a tent of it's size. The doors are huge and the bathtub floor works very well, very secure. I love the innovative gear loft and the fact that it comes with a few things I would have wanted to upgrade. Like triangular stakes and reflective guy lines. Beautiful shelter!

    Dislikes: Only two guy lines. Haven't had it in strong winds yet so I don't know if that will be a problem. Other than that it's a great tent.

  • Robert K. Marquette MI

    Likes: i am 6' tall and i find this tent to be plenty long. i weigh only about 170 lbs and the width is also very comfortable. there is plenty of space to sit up in as well. the stuff sack that comes with it is an appropriate size to fit the tent plus the steaks. the first night i spent in it it rained hard and there was a little bit of wind. the wind never made its way in but the vents in the canopy made it possible for some extra ventilation which was nice.

    Dislikes: the steaks are a little on the flimsy side and the vestibules seam a little smaller than what i had expected but there are two of them which is a plus.
