    Size is great. Easy to set up. No footprint, but planning to use a small, lightweight tarp. Rainfly looks good. Excited to try it out in the summer!

    This is a great two man tent. I bought my first one and when it arrived it was raining so I set it up in my living room and liked it so much I bought another one. I have used them both recently on a hike on the Cossatot River trail in Arkansas. I like that it has two doors one on each side so that your not climbing over someone getting in and out of the tent. Super easy to set up and take down. I bought both of mine on sale, you just can't beat the tent for the price.

    This is a wonderful 2 man tent. Easy to set up, easy to take down and light. I bought for my son to use for scouts I like me it so much I bought one for me. He set it up by himself and he's 8!
    It rained hard for hours right after set up and it stayed dry! The train fly covers the entire tent. It was cool and it was warm and cozy

    I would highly recommend this tent and will buy mountainsmithproducts

    This is a good tent for the money. medium weight (not for ultra light packers) Sets up quickly. Tent stakes are like most tents in this price range, a little flimsy. Will bend. PLENTY of room for a bigger guy plus gear. I am 6'3" and could stretch out. 2 people, pretty snug.. Vestibules are small, but there are two of them. Will hold boots and a small pack in each one.. The two doors are very convenient. Nice big D doors. Zippers are good, material seems good as well. The two big pockets by the door can be used for holding the door open or putting gear in. Nice attic comes with it. There are 2 vents that can help with lessening condensation and getting fresh air in. They are located on the top ends.
    I took the tent out in the Uninta mountains in Utah for a week. Fit nicely in my Dana Design pack. The tent held up to some strong winds, 25 -30 mph gusts. I did have jt guyed out. The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is it leaked some when it rained. It rained very hard for 3+ hours. The rain may have come through the vents, not sure.(I was sleeping most of the time it rained.) It was a small amount but still annoying. I am resealing the tent and will keep vents closed and test it for leaks later. This was the only con to this tent.
    It was priced right, $83.00 with a STP coupon.
    Botom line: It did leak but may have ben my fault with not closing the vents. Excellent price ,great for a 1 man tent if you don't mind a bit more weight. Well constructed. I would recommend it for a one person tent.

    Mountainsmith Celestial Tent - - - 4.5 stars rounded up
    Where Used - - - - - Lower Mt. Hood, Pacific Coast, and Eastern Oregon High Desert.
    TLDR - - - - - - - - - -Great Tent. Well sewn, good materials, reasonably light, a little cramped.

    As stated, I don't run ultralight and have no problem sloggin a 40 pound old-school external frame pack out into the bush. If you are one of those people who are counting every ounce then this tent is Not for you. But, this thing really isn't that heavy either. It is way lighter than "other cheaper brands" and is a reasonable backpacking tent if you are willing to give a little on your weight restrictions. BUT, only you really know what you need in a tent.

    Around here, typically a lot of rain so not having total mesh sides is a plus when the wind is blowing. The rain cover has two "vents". I have seen a couple reviewers complain about rain blowing in thru the vents. Simple.... close the vents. If the wind is hurricane and moisture is still blowing in somehow stick a sock in it.

    The materials are excellent. The YKK zippers are whisper quiet which is something you don't get even on a Eureka tent. The aluminum poles are very strong. The tent body is made from light but durable materials. Despite that I highly recommend getting or improvising a footprint. I am lead to understand the Mountainsmith Morrison 2 footprint works with the Celestial tent. One camp the only place to pitch the tent put the edge of one bolder under one corner of the tent, and another at the opposite corner. I did a lot of worrying for nothing as the tent floor did fine and I didn't crack my head in the middle of the night either.

    The tent is listed as two person, and like any other two-person tent from any Brand, this means you better be ok snuggling that other person and keeping most of your gear outside. The length is great though. However, me and my dachshund and a lot of gear sprawled out like it was a resort. No sleeping diagonal in this tent. The vestibules under the rain fly are very small. A large pack like mine needs to be right up against the tent on it's side or something is sticking out.

    The gear loft is two mesh sacks sewn bottom to bottom which is really, really smart. There is a dual pocket at one end and then on each side the pockets intended to hold an open door can be used for gear as well.

    The bag is large as some have pointed out. I assume this is to allow for a footprint. I kind of like not having to fight the tent into a bag but am thinking of getting a compression sack anyway. Hard choice as it fits just fine on my pack. If it bothers you a really cheap alternative is just get some webbing and some buckles and make your own compression straps.

    Over all, this is a really great tent. Really well built, and despite what some say the weight really isn't that bad. A perfect tent for that niche between car camping and ultralighting.
