Reviews

Shifter™ 2 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tent The tent comfortably fits two 6' or less people, super functional. Handy vestibules as well, and very easy to set up. Only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is it's a bit on the larger side to throw on a pack for a 4+ mile hiking trip, if you have other gear to add to the pack as well (i.e., sleeping mat, etc).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little small if you are on the taller side I love this tent and have used it already, but it is a little small for me as I am 6 foot 2 and I barely fit in as far as length goes. My girlfriend fits perfect and the width is perfect, it is just the length. If you are 6 foot tall or shorter, this is the perfect tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packing light for two Great tent for backpacking. The storage area was perfect for keeping our gear out of the weather. The fit was perfect for the two of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent! I used my Shifter 2 tent for the first time last weekend and it was just as I expected. Very easy to set up, it took not even 10 minutes to get it assembled. It was a hot evening so the screen door was great to let a little of a breeze in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps me coming back... I work in Mongolia leading student adventure travel programs and I swear by these tents for my programs. I like them so much, I bought one for myself! I had a much more technical tent for personal use, but find that this tent is exceptional: it's withstood harsh Mongolian weather, rain, wind, snow, and I was so tickled by the built-in tool on the fly. Having two doors is great and the gear shed is enormous. I'm now the proud owner of 16 of them and can't recommend them enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 2 Person Tent This is a great tent for the money. Very spacious inside. The 2 vestibules also add a ton of space to keep gear out of the elements. I like that it comes with the footprint. Very versatile in how it can be set up. If you want the breeze getting in, set it up with mesh facing wind, if not, set it up with canvas side facing wind. I wish it were a little lighter, but still a great tent and very rugged.
