Reviewed by DesertCamper from California on Monday, April 24, 2017I bought this tent for backpacking with our Boy Scout Troop. I used it for the first time at a Scout camping event, and was so pleased with it. We camped on a ridge in the desert. A wind storm came in the second night, and this tent handled it beautifully. No whipping around like the other tents in camp were doing, just a little shaking.
Setup was simple. Seasoned campers were commenting on how easy it looked. The design on the inside was brilliant - just the right number and size of mesh pockets, with loops at the top for my lightweight lantern. I'm six feet tall, and I was able to fit in the tent with an air mattress with room on all four sides.
My son was jealous. He's outgrown his child-sized tent, so I'm back to purchase a Celestial for his birthday. Mountainsmith is my new favorite brand.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Scoutmaster from Topeka Ks on Tuesday, April 11, 2017Bought 6 for a Boy Scout Troop, but have not used yet. Will have to see how they hold up. Features and materials on par with other tents I have owned and at an attractive price. Again time will tell.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lost Dutchman from Superstition Mountains on Sunday, April 2, 2017This is an excellent tent, especially for the price. It runs 14 to 16 ounces heavier than significantly more expensive tents, but the included metal stakes and the sturdy carrying bag account for that weight. So leave the stakes and the carrying bag behind and you have a great 2-person backpacking tent, a shelter with room to keep your gear inside if you are solo, or a really nice car camping tent if you take the extra weight . Set up and break down are quick and easy. It uses a color coded clip and hook system. I was done in less than 5 minutes. The tent has two doors, one on each side of the tent, so it is really good for two people. Your significant other does not have crawl over you in the middle of the night, and that is a bonus. The materials are sturdy and this tent has has kept me dry in intermittent downpours with the fly on. The tent also has a significant area of mesh walls, so it works great in summer with the fly off, too. Highly recommended.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by numbskull37 from CA on Saturday, April 1, 2017I purchased this tent for a 2 week Moto camping trip last year and have used it for the same 4 times since. easy to set up quickly, packs very easily and good size for light travel. It's starting to wear a bit more for few uses than I'd like but wrapping it in a more durable cover (piece of scrap leather is the call) prevents said wear. Very happy with the tent and would definitely recommend to others.
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“Hey, just wondering. Does this tent have any interior gear pockets or loops for a gear loft? Thanks!”
The tent does have gear pockets.
Yes, it has pockets and a gear loft!
It has many gear pockets and has a floating ceiling vestibule
“The tent I received has a seam on the floor where it meets the start of the wall. I thought a "bathtub" by your definition means no seams on the floor?”
no, bathtub designs means the floor goes up on all 4 sides - like a tub - majority of tents have seams on the floor. As long as they are taped, it's all good
“Is this tent rectangular, or trapezoidal (narrower at foot or head end, as it appears from pic)? If narrower on one end, what are the dimensions at each end? STP-- I would apreciate a footprint plan including vestibule spaces provided on each tent as a policy, since many are irregular (trapezoidal, diamond/ polygonal, etc), and I do not like to guess-- I often visit other competing sites to get this information when I want to buy a tent here.”
The Mountainsmith Celestial Tent- 2Person has rectangular footprint||I will pass your request along to the appropriate people, but cannot make any promises. Thanks for asking and have a good day.
“I don't see this on Mountainsmith's website, but it looks nearly identical to the Morrison 2....could it be the same thing in a different color?”
The Celestial is a closeout so Mountainsmith does not make it any more. It is possible that the Morrison 2 is a newer version of the Celestial.
Checked with Mountainsmith directly and they said they take the same footprint - so, yes - I would say it's an upgrade
