    Even though it's rated for 3, unless you really want to get personal, 2 is a much comfortable fit. The vestibules are plenty big along with the canopy doors. It's as easy at looks to set it up. The rainfly is keyed with the footprint. It's first night i withstood the San Louis Valley winds which reach up to 50mph without even the rainfly tie downs. Couldn't have asked for a better intro tent.

    Easy to pitch. Solid construction. Great for any weekend trip. The included footprint is a nice touch.

    Purchased this to replace a hard-used MHW Room for 3. The Drifter 3 is a bit smaller, but still feels very roomy inside. Super easy pitching. Like the option to use only footprint and fly for fast shelter--plus the ability to pitch the tent AFTER the fly is up, for those wet situations. Love the additional door/vestibule on this design. Looking forward to many years of comfortable camping inside this tent.

    This tent has exceeded my expectations! I wanted a tent that could comfortably hold 2 people and that was easy to set up. This tent is both of those. Most importantly I wanted it to be dry in the rain. This tent stayed dry after being out in 3 days of rain. Defiantly happy with this purchase!

    After doing a ton of research and consulting with friends who are serious outdoorsmen, I decided on this Mountain Hardwear tent. It's a highly respected brand which is obviously earned by years of producing quality products. Besides the build quality, I was attracted to this tent because it included features like the footprint, gear loft, dual doors, and 2-pole construction. Just having to purchase the footprint from a retailer would have added at least $40. Although I believe all versions of the Drifter come with a gear loft, most tents don't--so that's about another $30 value. I won't belabor the points about the quality or type of construction; there's ample testimony on the internet attesting to both this brand and this tent's virtues in these areas--my experience with the tent has been similarly positive--very well constructed...from taped seams, to dryness, to design...it's a solid tent. That said, here are some complaints. The tent has no real instructions included and it can be confusing. The manufacturer has an updated model with some changes that they have videos on hos to pitch, but the design changes render the video only partially helpful. Having watched the video before receiving the tent, I was able to figure everything out fairly quickly, but not including useful instructions is inexcusable. That said, on my second time practicing putting it up, I was able to do so in about 7 minutes (solo). On my first outing it went up even quicker, and the tear-down is similarly rapid. Kudos to STP for providing such a great value; I was able to pick up this tent at 1/3 the price I would have had to pay locally....plus they beat every other internet retailer in price & service too.

    • Answer Either the previous answer from STP or the product description is incorrect. The product description indicates the tent has mesh storage pockets and a gear loft.
