Product Description

Morrison is a 3 Season, 2 Person Tent. Weight 4lbs, 11oz.

Convenient, water-resistant stuff sacks include convenient assembly instructions printed right on the bag.
Outdoor outfitter Mountainsmith has been designing rugged, versatile tents for more than 30 years. The new two-person, three-season Morrison tent is another solid addition to the line, and was recently recognized with the 2011 Backpacker Gear Guide "Killer Deal" and "Killer Value" awards.

Boasting more than 35 square feet of space, plenty of light, and optimal ventilation thanks to large mesh wall panels, the Morrison additionally features a bathtub floor with taped seams to keep the interior dry. A freestanding, two-pole design and color-coded fly attachment system mean you can set the tent up in minutes, and instructions are conveniently printed on the stuff sack for quick reference. Double vestibules add 14 square feet of dry storage space, while a removable canopy shelf offers an easy-access perch to stow all of those small essentials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love this tent!!
By Josh on January 8, 2018
Went on 4 backpacking trips in the US. This tent is perfect for the soloist or a team. Nice amount of room, very light and pack able. I love the canopy it provides with the rain fly to protect your pack and boots or whatever gear you want to leave outside the tent close by. Very good ventilation and strong construction. If you shop REI ask them about this tent, the 3 shops I went to were surprised at the price and speak highly of this tent.

Edit: the pics on the dock. I was treating the tent with permethrin spray. Excellent stuff if you don't want to be bothered with ticks, spiders or mosquitoes. Spray it on the outer clothes you plan on wearing and spend a week in the wilderness without worry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Tent, Great Price
By C. Raymond Tant on July 10, 2011
I recently started backpacking again after a brief hiatus (3 kids) and realized I needed to update some of my gear. One piece of which was to replace my 22 year old Moss two person 4 season tent (12 lbs). I narrowed my selection down to 4 tent brands (Big Agnes, Sierra Design, MSR and REI) based on size, weight and price. I came across the Morrison tent as a suggested option from Amazon and the sale price caught my eye. I have bought Mountainsmith gear in the past and always liked their quality. Looking at online reviews (found about 40-50, Backpacker Magazine called it the "killer deal for 2011"), most people were very positive about it. Photos and specs gave the impression that it was constructed equivalent to other brands and wasn't a bargain basement, off-brand, big box store cheapo tent. The tent comes in at 4 lb 11 oz, which is about 3/4 lb more than the Big Agnes Copper Spur ($400-$500) and a little less than a half pound more than the REI Quarter Dome ($190) and Sierra Design HT ($279).

I have always had a discriminating taste for outdoor gear (paid $500+ for Moss tent in 92) and most of my buddies don't spare the expense either. So, upon arriving I opened the tent and was still impressed by the quality of the fabric and construction. The tent has two doors and with the fly on it has two vestibules. The tent has a lot of mesh to allow for good airflow on hot nights. However, there is a layer of fabric behind the mesh on both doors. I am not sure why the included it because the fabric and zippers together probably weigh 4-8 oz. I spoke to Mountainsmith and they said the fabric was not structural and could be removed (I am considering). Overall the tent is easy to assemble and has color coded poles to speed up assembly. The tent also uses clips to attach the poles which will help airflow on warm nights. The footprint of the tent is also a whopping 56" x 92" compared to the Copper Spur (52x90), Quarter Dome (52 x 85) and the SD H2 (50 x 83). Other tents of comparable sized footprints made my MSR, Mountain Hardwear, North Face and Big Agnes were much heavier (+5lbs) than this tent. I expect to strictly use this as a two person tent for backpacking and splitting up the gear to ease the weight. Although heavier than some of its competitors, you cannot match the quality, size and price of this tent.

I finally had this tent out in a massive thunderstorm that blew up and dumped 1-2 inches of rain in 1 hour. I was at a shelter away from the camp when it hit. Apparently a 2-3 inch sheet flow of rain went right to the tent (I believe it based on the debris) and stayed around it for the entire hour. Everyone at camp that saw it thought there would be 2 inches of water inside. When I got back to camp and saw the debris and heard the story I knew my gear would be soaked. However, I was completely surprised and pleased to see it was bone dry. There was some splash up on the sidewalls (It seriously rained like crazy), but it did not affect the inside. I think if I had cranked down the fly a little more it would not have been a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent backpacking tent.
By OHIOMAN on May 22, 2016
I am updating my review now that I have used this on a wide variety of trips in different environments and terrains.

I have used this on single day and multi-day trips. In the rain, in the snow, in the dusty low desert & in the cool high mountains. I have used this free standing on rock ledges without the fly and in soft soil with the fly. I have used this in 100 degree heat and below freezing cold. I have no complaints about it's ability to handle most normal weather conditions. I have used this solo with my gear inside, and shared it with another adult with plenty of room for us to maneuver comfortably with our gear in the vestibules. Two doors is a definite plus in this situation. Honestly I can't say enough good things about this tent. For the price, you can not find a more versatile tent.

I purchased this tent specifically for my first backpacking trip and have used it many times since, and have always been happy. Only after ten+ camping trips with this tent am I ready to move on to a different model, but I will still be keeping and using this tent for other adventures. My biggest desire for this tent would be lighter weight. I am venturing more into Ultralight backpacking and would like something half the weight. But, with a partner, one could split the tent and poles, fly, and footprint to achieve that result.

Excellent value. Quality construction. Quick setup.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid 4, but not perfect
By Shannanb on May 3, 2015
I have used this tent four nights with my son. I am 6ft-190 pounds and he is 5-10
and 135 pounds. That is important as size of users can vary and your mileage may vary :)

Well constructed tent-seems sealed, fabric is durable. Poles are high quality aluminum and it is big enough to fit two average sized adults. It is easy to assemble and weight listed seems accurate. There are a ton of little storage components/areas in the tent. There are storage pockets on the sides and one that hangs over the main floor. Assembly is quick and like most dome tents. I believe this tent is well-designed. I would say it would be most useful for two adults splitting the weight. I love the vestibules and two doors. The vestibules I find large enough for boots plus a pack. Two doors means you don't have to climb over someone at night- love that.

The tent could be considered heavy depending how you look at it. I think if you split between two people it works perfectly, but that is a personal preference.

The ventilation is so-so. On three of the four nights- even properly staked, there was significant condensation inside the tent, more than other tents that I have used. More than anything I believe that is a result of two people in tight quarters, but that is why this is a review.

Stakes are ok, not great, but light.

This tent would fit two average sized adults on their sleeping pads, but much more would be pushing it.

I do like the tent and it is my go to for two person travel. There might be better out there- but this is a good buy and solid performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mountainsmith Tent
Reviewed in Mexico on February 27, 2017
Es una casa cómoda, bastante adecuada para bajas temperaturas. Le doy 4☆ ya que aún falta probarla bajo lluvia y nieve pero casi segura de que no me defraudará 👌

Después de dos años y salidas dos veces cada mes durante todo este tiempo, la casa sigue en buenas condiciones tomando en cuenta que compré el footprint de la misma marca de manera individual para el cuidado de la misma. A mi parecer el interior es amplio para dos personas con todo y mochilas de 45L. He estado en lluvias, heledas y vientos fuertes sin problema alguno. En zonas tropicales la casa es algo acalorada. Las estacas no son de mi agrado lo cual las alternos con otras hechizas para mayor seguridad.
