A unique shape-shifting rainfly lets you decide how the Mountain Hardwear Shifter 2 tent can serve you best. With dual doors a roomy interior watertight construction and an included footprint the Shifter 2 is a great option for 3-season backpacking or camping.

The Shifter 2 weighs in at 4 pounds 14 ounces and offers 33 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 Shifter 2 to the DAC press-fit aluminum poles.

Mesh and nylon construction in the walls of the tent body combats the build-up of condensation and offers maximum ventilation. The 75D Polyester Taffeta rainfly has a PU coating to ensure weather protection. In fact Mountain Hardwear guarantees watertight construction; the taped seams and welded construction of the Shifter 2 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 panels on the tent body alternate between mesh and polyester and the rainfly can be configured to make either side the tent your “main” entry allowing you to choose between increased privacy or maximum ventilation.

A custom-fit footprint is included to protect the floor of the Mountain Hardwear Shifter 2 from the wear and tear of rocks exposed roots mud and ground water. If you want to save weight you can even set up the tent fly with the poles and the footprint to create a stripped down shelter that weighs in at just 3 pounds 3 ounces.

  • Split solid canopy/breathable mesh construction for both privacy and ventilation
  • Fly configuration offers large front-door vestibule for easy entry/exit and "shouldered" back door vestibule for gear storage
  • 2 mesh/canopy doors with dual-slider zipper for easy entry and exit
  • Footprint included
  • Gear loft (included) provides convenient storage
  • Industry-leading DAC Pressfit poles
