Make the front wall of your tent open to the breeze and the view, or closed-off from nasty weather: with the Shifter 2 Two-Person Tent by Mountain Hardwear, you have the choice. Its innovative design lets you pick the configuration that suits the conditions and your preferences.
The tent features large doors on both long sides. One side is mesh, the other is fabric. Attach the fly so that its opening is on the tent's mesh side, and you have a screened wall with an awning-like vestibule (and lots of vestibule storage outside the "back door.") Set the fly so that its opening is on the tent's fabric side, and your door is well-defended against the elements by a large vestibule that gives you plenty of room for storing gear.
Whichever door you choose to use, you'll find it easy to open and close thanks to the dual-slider zippers. The Shifter's floor, fly and the fabric portion of its canopy are made of 75 denier polyester taffeta with a 1500mm durable water repellent polyurethane finish. The tent comes with a footprint, which will save wear and tear on the floor, and a gear loft, which gives you an off-the-floor place to stow personal items. There are also mesh storage pockets on the walls.
Reflective guy-out points, zipper pulls, and starter point make it easier to set up the tent in low light. The assembled tent measures 83 x 54" with a center height of 46".
