The Mountain Hardwear Shifter 3 Tent is great for casual camping, but the tent's design lets you strip down some of the car camping comforts to create a lightweight shelter ideal for backpacking. The fully taped fly readies you for rainy nights, and its unique design gives you a massive vestibule space for climbing and camping gear. The DWR-coated ripstop canopy and PU-coated floor also offer wet weather protection, and large mesh doors ensure ventilated airflow in summer's warm temps. The Shifter also features DAC's industry-leading Pressfit poles, secure clips, and reflective guy-out points for easy setup in low light. Rid the fly and included footprint, and the Shifter 3 is a mere 3lb 10oz. Mountain Hardwear also included a gear loft for headlamps, and mesh storage pockets for convenient organization.

The Mountain Hardwear Shifter 3 Tent is a freestanding tent for 3 people or less to go backpacking and camping. The tent is one part mesh and one part solid canopy, so you can choose which way you'd like to pitch the rain fly over top. Position the front door vestibule over the solid canopy door and you'll enjoy plenty of privacy. Flip the rainfly around and the front door vestibule then covers the mesh door, allowing for increased breathability and air flow. The other vestibule is "shouldered", which is designed for gear storage, not so much for entering and exiting, although it is possible if you'd like to climb over your packs. It's nice having options.
