Mountainsmith Morrison 2
MSRP: $179.95 (mountainsmith.com)
This thing is quite simply the best tent value for the money of any shelter I've seen to date. Not a light tent by any stretch, is the Mountainsmith Morrison 2 is plenty light for kayaking. This is a journeyman three-season tent that will do the job with no (or little used) bells or whistles. I'm an old Mountainsmith fanboy and still using the products I picked up over a decade ago. Workmanship and durability are their signature qualities, and the Morrison 2 looks every bit as solid as their popular lumbar packs. It walked off with an armload of value awards in the leading gear review venues for a reason.
