  • Excerpt: Problem: Single-wall tents shave ounces, but usually collect condensation. Solution: The Mojo’s effective single/double-wall hybrid construction, which combines mesh walls at the tent’s head end (protected by a partial fly) and single-wall technology at the foot. The result looks like something Batman would deploy, and it foiled moisture buildup in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

  • Summary: Very easy and fast to set up and take down. Packs down relatively small for a tent this size. Fits my 6' 5" slender frame great. Holds two adults easily. Best suited for backpacking. Would highly recommend. Perfect for backpacking in pairs.
  • Pros: Two doors with a vestibule each, Very roomy compared to weight, Easy setup, When set up right is 3+ season
  • Cons: Little heavy for a solo packer, but only slightly heavier than its solo counterpart., Rain drips in when entering or exiting with wet rain fly

  • Excerpt: I've had the standard (not the "pro") Gunnison 2 person tent for approx. 5 years and have used it in a variety of locations and seasons. I haven't done any winter camping with it, and (hopefully) never will. The tent is designated a 3-season tent, and I'll take Kelty's word for it. The tent is very easy to set up, and though I've never actually timed it I'm guessing I can set it up in 5 or 6 minutes, including staking.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Great floor space, 2 vestibules, Crappy stakes included, There are lighter tents available
  • Cons: Crappy stakes included, There are lighter tents available

  • Excerpt: I'm copying my review from backcountry.com, since I don't want to type it out again: I got this tent about two months ago, and I've used it 3 times with great satisfaction. I work for a conservation corps, for twice a month for 8 days my tent is my home. I researched tents for 4 months when picking my most recent tent, and I decided on the Gunnison 2.1. For me, dual doors tents are a must-have. If you ever go backpacking with a friend or partner, one door just sucks.

  • Excerpt: I have had this tent for about 4 years, and it has been an outstanding tent for the price. It is rated as a 2 man, but being a fairly large person I have always used it as a one man. I use it frequently for backpacking trips with my son and his Boy Scout troop, and I have never had any problems. The tent has been through torrential rain storms, cold temperatures and light to moderate snow and it has always kept me dry.
