My Montbell Crescent 2 Tent arrived today after weeks of being on back order.  It’s HUGE and AWESOME!!!

 I chose the two person tent for several reasons:

  • After hiking the PCT I got used to having my own space when sleeping.  A two person tent will give me that extra space and comfort when it’s raining or snowing or buggy.
  • I can easily sit up and get changed without bumping the walls like you often do in a one person tent.
  • I like the idea of camping away from shelters and avoiding crowds – thus I’ll be using a tent more often then staying in shelters.
  • It’s one of the lightest 2 person tents on the market – at 3 lbs total.
  • I don’t mind carrying the extra ounces for the added comfort
  • I can cook inside …. if I had to … which I won’t do … but, still, I could probably get away with it if I was careful.
  • Finally, I love playing Twister …. now I have enough room to play inside!  haha!

    Hi Alex,
    saw your pics with the Mont Bell 2. What about condensation? Isn’t the door a bit small?
    Hope to read you.

    Hi there. Wondering if you still have this tent. I have mine and love it but just lost my tent pole! Do you mind giving me the length of the pole so I can find an appropriately sized replacement? Thanks
