Mountain Hardwear Shifter 3 Tent w/ Footprint

Mountain Hardwear Shifter 3 Tent w/ Footprint

This backpacking and camping tent for three, with its innovative design, lets you choose different configurations to meet changing conditions.

The versatile Shifter™ features an innovative 50/50 design of solid canopy and breathable mesh. How you pitch it - and how you configure the fly - lets you choose privacy or wide-open vistas, more weather protection or superior ventilation, depending on your needs. Rotate the fly one direction for an open, airy entrance with welcoming vestibule. Turn the other way for extra privacy and a large gear storage area with shouldered vestibule for more usable space.

If you want to form a new company that can make radically different products for the outdoor industry, what better way than to gather together industry veterans who are also accomplished outdoors people? 

That's exactly how Mountain Hardwear® came to be back in 1993 and the innovative, radical thinking of that founding team and its employees is what drives them every day to continually invent (and re-invent) the most functional and innovative gear available. 

The company has patented their Cross Flow® tent construction, developed WindStopper® next-to-skin fabric in partnership with Gore®, and has also patented Quantum Expander® for sleeping bags - to name just a few of their accomplishments! 

Mountain Hardwear - technologically-advanced gear well suited for any outdoor pursuit.
