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.

Real Customer Reviews
Likes: When I first set it up the tent my grandkids were here and they must have went in and out of it - no kidding - at least 200 times. So I know the zippers are well constructed. Wrestled around in it, over it, doors on boths sides, so through it and it endured well. Wife and I are a little older so at night the way the doors on each side open wide it's easy to get in and out and not have to crawl over each other.
Dislikes: Nothing so far.
Likes: Great product. Easy to set up and tear down. Packs small and does all it says it will
Dislikes: Not much to dislike.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
