THE SELL: An economical, lightweight, three-season backpacker. THE TEST: Pack maker Mountainsmith enters the tent market with a classic two-door, two-vestibule, two-person X design. The old-school architecture lacks the space-boosting near-vertical walls you find in most new tents, but it makes up for that with a generous 35-square-foot floor plan. The mostly mesh canopy and fly vents also kept testers
condensation-free in soggy, 30-degree conditions. THE VERDICT: Great deal, especially
considering user-friendly touches like reflective guylines, color-coded buckle attachments for the fly, and a removable gear loft. 4.9 lbs.
