Great tent, Incredible customer service
by Matthew on June 23, 2014
I bought this tent recently to finally enter the world of two man tents, my dated one man just wasn't cutting it for my significant other and I. After a full afternoon and evening of research I decided that this tent was the best value for the money under $200. I ordered it and had it on my doorstep in four days, just in time for a backpacking trip. As with any new gear, I set it up in the living room to make sure I could figure it out and that all the parts were there. Set up was easy due to the color coordinated straps, snaps, and poles. I like the tried and true X-frame design, no frills, and very little to go wrong. The included stakes are of high quality of well. The quality of construction seemed very good, for this ultralight obsessed age. Since all was well, I strapped it to my pack and two days later it had been set up by a picturesque stream in the Rocky Mountains. It is definitely bigger than many of the competitors, with a generous 35 square feet of internal space. It was enough room for two adults and their packs with room to spare both horizontally and vertically. The vestibules were a bit small, but definitely big enough for a pair of boots and a pack if need be. The storage options in this tent are very thoughtful. There are a whole mess of pockets at face height, and a neat little loft pocket for things you want to keep separate. One other feature you simply don't find on tents anymore is a second piece of fabric to cover the mesh over the doors to keep a bit more warmth in. It does add weight, but a little more fabric will be appreciated in late Fall and early Spring. Overall it is a very well thought out tent for a very reasonable price.
The part that really impressed me was Mountainsmiths incredible customer service. During the aforementioned backpacking trip, my pack was bumped from the tree it was leaning against to fall onto the tent. The result of this mishap was a 4 inch tear in the rain-fly, which was both unexpected and frustrating in a brand new tent. I am convinced it was just a freak accident as the Morrison 2 has a reputation for being robust. When I got back to civilization I called up customer support to test out the "Lifetime Guarantee." Much to my surprise, a very nice gentleman from Golden, CO picked up the phone and asked how he could help. After explaining the situation he apologized for the trouble, and told me he was just going to send me a BRAND NEW TENT in exchange for my slightly damaged one. Now that is quality service. No hoops, no weird caveats, no intensive scrutiny/interrogation. This quality Colorado company has gained a loyal customer, that is certain. I highly recommend this product, and have no doubt that the rest of their product line is of high quality. Thanks for reading.

the morrison 2 is a great tent! the first time i used it i could hear thunder in the distance and the sky opened up shortly after i was inside; fortunately, it takes only a couple minutes. not a drop of water got in the tent during the thunder shower nor during the downpour that lasted the entire next day. the storage pockets, particularly the ceiling loft pocket, are handy and well placed. the vestibules are generously sized. the one cavil i have is that unzipping the vestibule in the rain lets water fall right in; i don't know how it could be different and it's not a fatal flaw, it's just the one negative i found. the morrison seems to be a bit roomier than i was expecting which is nice; it is very comfy for 1 person, cozy for 2. all in all i give this tent 5 stars and recommend it. thanks, mountainsmith.
