In this episode of BackpackersReview, Dan Nash reviews a quality, inexpensive backpacking tent, the Mountainsmith Morrison and the SPOT messenger satellite gps system. Dan also gives tips for packing your gear in your backpackNew for 2011! Mountainsmith brings its 30+ year heritage in the outdoors back to the tent category. Our Morrison two person tent features 35 sq ft of interior usable space, creating more versatility for that extra dog or 7ft brother-in-law. Add in the value of our removable canopy shelf and set-up instructions printed on the stuffsack and you’ve got a 3 season tent that performs way beyond it’s price tag. Awarded “2011 Backpacker Gear Guide – KILLER DEAL!” and “2011 Outdoor Magazine – KILLER VALUE!”


I created TheBackpackerTV because of my passion for the outdoors and seeing nature up close and personal. To share my experiences, and the experiences of others for everyone to enjoy. We go watch hundreds of videos each month picking the very best for you. Enjoy!

  • Check out the Mountain Hardwear Drifter 2. I got it on sale for $125. Same weight and it is GUARANTEED waterproof or they will replace it. The 3 person won Backpacker Magazines editors choice award a few years back.
