Reviews

Shifter™ 4 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent The Mountain Hardwear Shifter 4 is by far the best tent I have ever had. We took this tent camping near the beach for about four days. The weather was cold and damp with a light rain off and on. The high sides of the tent were great for keeping out the sand and dirt. When it did rain, the tent kept of dry and warm. We bought of dog with us on this camping trip, and usually when we go camping with our dog she is very anxious and doesn’t sleep very well. With this tent, she slept through the entire night and we didn’t have to use a create. I would highly recommend this tent to anymore who camps with a dog and the weather is unknown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shifter 4 Tent Bought this for a bicycle trip with my teenagers to Denmark and Sweden. Ease of set up is very simple and there is ample room in the vestibule to store gear. Appears very bomb-proof and will do well to protect from rain. Downside is ventilation, but that is always the tradeoff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect...Almost Shifter 4 I recently used the Shifter 4 on a trip up the I-95 corridor. I encountered light rain but no major downpours, so I can’t comment on the tent’s storm worthiness. The fly does appear to provide more than adequate coverage. The tent is almost perfect for my purposes. Packs light and compact. Roomy interior. Two doors and two vestibules. Super simple to pitch. Only two poles, no sleeves to mess with. Quality materials. Footprint included. The only drawback is the limited cross ventilation. In hot weather all the mesh in the ceiling does not help because most of the heat is trapped by the rain fly. What is needed is a mesh layer in the “solid” door to allow air to pass through door to door at ground level. Add a zip panel to the door and you’d have the perfect tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Backpacking Tent My 11 and 13 year old daughters came to my wife and I and expressed interest in going backpacking for the first time. I researched tents that would accommodate the 4 of us and decided on the Shifter 4 because of it's size, weight, and vestibule storage configuration. The tent was easy to set up and take down and had enough room for the 4 of us and our dog, who of course needed to sleep in the tent also. The kids had a fantastic time and we look forward to using this tent on many trips over the coming years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Quick setup, quality materials. I left my campsite with a wet bottom and by the time I returned home to dry it, it had dried itself out. While the main setup is easy I recommend watching the setup videos to understand the full potential of this tent.
