The Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2 DP provides spacious comfort and easy setup for two people.

This tent can also be set up three ways; fly only, canopy only or full setup. For comfort and convenience, the Drifter 2 features two large doors and two roomy vestibules (ten square foot each) for plenty of gear storage. The included gear loft provides extra storage.

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. 


New for 2013, the Drifter 2 DP model features Mountain Hardwear's DryPitch ™ configuration, which allows the tent to be set up fly-first in the rain, keeping the interior of the tent dry. The included footprint allows you to set up the tent in three different configurations: rainfly only, tent body only, or the complete tent.

Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2 DP Review:

Reviews:

Great Tent!

This is a great tent. It is freestanding and quick and easy to set up. I am 6' 2" and 190 lbs and this tent was nice and roomy. There was plenty of head and foot room and I could sit up without the top of my head hitting the ceiling of the tent. The rainfly kept the inside of the tent nice and warm and kept the rain and snow out. I used it this fall and it held up well to rain, freezing rain, and snow and kept me dry and warm. Condensation does form on the rain fly, but there is enough space between the fly and the tent that it is not a problem.
