As winter turns into spring and the warm weather returns, we see lots of customers in our store who know that they need a tent for their backpacking adventures, but aren't sure exactly which one to get. Those customers leave with a Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2 in hand more often than any other model. The Drifter owes its popularity not to futuristic materials or crazy architecture - but rather to good, old-fashioned value. There are lots of 2-person dome tents in the world that take the same general shape of the Drifter, but its mix of quality craftsmanship, pleasing aesthetics, and essential features combine to make it the most popular tent in our inventory.

This tent is Sick
Doesn't take long to set up and the rain fly is reliable; Keeps out wind and holds in heat really well.
Seemed pretty big for a 2 person, but holds lots of gear with plenty of room to spare.
Definitely worth the price.
