      Since there is not a floor to the Mountain Shelter. The Mountain Shelter has a zippered door down the side but not across the bottom.

  • Q:

    I like the design of this shelter, however the lack of reviews concerns me. How deos this compare to other similar shelters such as the appy trails 3 in terms of quality, durability and protection from the elements.

      As I compare the specs between the Appy Trails Mark III 2-3 person; the mountainsmith Mountain Shelter is made from 40D RipStop Sil/Nylon 2000 mm coating, while the Appy Trails is 185T Polyester 1000mm. The ripstop sil/nylon is a little heavier and more durable and has more coating than the appy trails. The higher the coating the more waterproof the shelter. The Appy trails comes with a pole while the Mountainsmith expects a trekking pole to be used as a support. The weight of the Appy Trails is 1 lb 8 oz while the mountainsmith is 2 lb 1 oz, which makes it a little heavier.
