Hammerhead 2 tent and Hammerhead 2 Footprint
This was my first tent purchase, and the customer service and chat was great in the decision making. It was used in a recent 4 day hunting trip, night time temp was 22 degree's with light rain. The hammerhead held up and stood its ground, and since it was a two man tent I was able to keep all my gear dry and out of the weather. I was also impressed with the weight, no big issues of packing it in. A two thumbs up.

Liked the original so well that I bought the recent model also.
This tent is a little heavy but it is a three season tent with four season capability. Works perfectly for late fall and early winter where you can expect thunderstorms or early snow with wind and be a perfect haven for two. I bought the updated version with vented doors for a little more air movement in warm weather.

Weather worthy tent
I've had the MHW hammerhead 2 tent for about three years and it's been in countless heavy wind(20-35mph+winds) and in heavy rain storms. I also use it in winter and have had no problems with it in winter conditions. The hammerhead tent has performed when I've needed it the most. The inside of the tent is roomy even with two 6ft. persons in it. The tent has great ventilation and is roomy inside.

Mountain Hardwear: Hammerhead 2 Tent
Altrec shipped and delivered as promised. Thanks! I've only used this tent once so far. It is easy to set up and the fly makes the tent bomb proof in the wind. I used the tent at 12,000 feet in gusty winds with temps overnight into the low 40's. Stayed warm inside and didn't flap very much in the wind. I did pin the fly tight to the ground which made the vestibule area pretty small. With all 2 man tents these days it would be a tight squeeze with two. For one lots of room for pack and boots inside. Good interior height. A little heavy if your going to pack it (~9 pounds w/footprint). Also need to pick up some extra stakes. It is supposed to come with 10,either I lost one or it came with 9. Either way you need more, maybe 14 or so for a full install. May try the footprint - fly option for summer backpacking to save a few pounds.

amazing tent.*
I bought the 3 person version of the hammerhead. I can't say one bad thing about it. I've used it on 4 trips so far with my boyfriend and our 2 dogs. It's ventilation was the key factor for us purchasing it. It also has tons of room and is fast to put up/take down. Id definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. 'mel
