Love It! withstood 65+mile/hour winds on the beach at lake powell, cold nights in colorado rockies, downpouring rain in Utah. no sand or rain gets in with the wind and rain, doesnt collapse in wind, kept us warm at night. Plenty of room for two plus lots of gear-havent tried to fit 3 people though. Heavy for backpacking, but we split it up and each carry half, not bad if done that way, and you have lots of space to spread out after a long day on the trail!
The Drifter 2 has fast pitch, the Drifter 3 doesn't. Is that
The Drifter 2 has fast pitch, the Drifter 3 doesn't. Is that true or just a typo?

I gave it intense waterproof testing this spring/summer and water is not an issue. I found it to be fine to carry by myself along with all my other gear on multiple day backpacking trips in the mountains.

How is the ventilation? Also, how is the privacy? I will mainly be using this tent for festivals in the summer.

The ventilation of the tent seems to be pretty good, and privacy shouldn't be an issue, considering you have a full fly on the tent.

So first off, I got this for a pretty darn good deal. Less than 200$ for the tent and footprint so that was a major factor. Was in the market for a spacious all purpose tent. I normally go lightweight but needed a tent for car camping and when you go camping with those non backpackers (IE: family/girlfriend) it gets to be tough when you are cramming too much into too little space particularly when you are stuck in Seward AK rain. Just got this today so no real world testing as of yet. Pro's: very spacious. I am 6'2 and it is the first tent I've had that I don't touch the walls. Kingdom for 2 but could easily fit 3 although tightly. Good size vestibules and the clip poles are probly the best innovation in tent design I can think of. Love that it has a square footprint and doesn't taper. Great headroom. Construction seems bombproof. Like the fly/footprint pitch option. Very easy to set up. Cons: Obviously it is heavy for backpacking but if you are splitting it it is definitely manageable but for car camping it seems a great choice. Bulky roll up. Too many zippers. MH could have easily reduced weight by just eliminating some of the metal. In the end I think I will give this new tent a few trial runs in the rain up here in AK and if it holds up it will definitely go into the "spacious car camping / group backpacking tent" category. For less than 200$ you can't really go wrong, especially seeing as this thing is LONG. There aren't many ultralight tents for tall people so this will have to do. For the rest of my solo outings my bivy will still reign supreme. Hope this helps. Will update after a night or two in it and get a pic up.
