Mountainsmith Upland Tent: 2-Person 3-Season

Drive. Stop. Sleep.

Several weeks into your road trip to the Pacific Northwest, you've slept in 20 different spots in over eight states, but they all felt like home thanks to Mountainsmith's 2-Person Upland Tent. A no-frills 3-season option for car camping and shorter backpacking trips, the Upland delivers great value and some rain cover along the way.

Rolling into Big Bend Campground on Oregon's North Umpqua River, you and your significant other make short work of erecting the classic 3-pole design, and because it's a free-standing tent, there's little need to spend too much time bending metal stakes with random river rocks. But this being Oregon, there was a light downpour last night, so the cap-style rainfly is probably a good idea, but even so, the front door is water-resistant, minimizing the potential discomfort that another storm may bring.

  • A two-person tent great for car camping and road trips
  • Classic three-pole design is easy to erect
  • Cap fly reduces weight for backpacking trips
  • Front-entry door is water-resistant for added protection
  • Taped floor seams boost durability and seal out moisture
  • No-see-em mesh wall panels keep biting bugs at bay
  • Interior mesh storage pockets for whatever gear you need

Leakage

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unfortunately, I've been experiencing some minor leaking from the front-entry seam when it rains. It isn't much; however, if it rains hard enough for an extended period of time, a pool of water can occur. This can be stopped if you place a towel or article of clothing in the doorway, but that isn't an ideal situation on a backpacking trip.
