Balancing weight, performance, and price, the freestanding Mountainsmith Bear Creek 2 tent is a budget-friendly option for backpacking or camping.


Balancing weight, performance, and price, the freestanding Mountainsmith Bear Creek 2 tent is a budget-friendly option for backpacking or camping.

With a trail weight of 4 pounds, 3 ounces, the tent offers 30.5 square feet of usable interior. Aluminum poles provide sturdy structure, ease of set-up, and create a streamlined 5-square foot vestibule in-front of the large door. Interior mesh storage pockets provide a place to stash clothes and small gear items.

Clip construction makes it easy to connect the 68D polyester body of the tent to the poles. Mesh construction in the walls of the tent body combats condensation. Mountainsmith further ensures watertight performance with the PU-coated 68D rainfly, fully taped seams, and bathtub floor construction. Reflective guylines provide visibility for those times when you need to set up after dark.

An included footprint further protects the floor of the tent against ground water, roots and rocks. In warm weather or to save weight, you can leave the tent body behind and use the rainfly, the poles, and the footprint to reduce packed weight to 3 pounds, 2 ounces.

A good, basic tent


Good materials (YKK zippers) and it overall seems to be built well. Bathtub style floor is a plus. I like that the footprint is included. Lifetime warranty from a recognized name brand is always a plus.


Not so much a dislike, just something to be aware of: the poles are made well, but quite thin.
