Best Budget Backpacking Tent – Naturehike Mongar 2 (MSR Clone?)

So I’m going to tell you whether or not it’s worth it for you and as always I’ll have links down below in the description with the most updated prices and without further ado welcome to another review. So once you find your perfect campground, setting up the tent is fairly easy.

The first thing you want to do is grab your footprint, which is included with the tent and stake down. All four corners then grab your poles and put each end into the corner. Grommets. On the footprint – and it doesn’t matter which way you do this, because the tent is symmetrical – then lay out the tent across the footprint and start attaching the tent clips to the aluminum pole, starting from the bottom and work your way towards the top finishing at that Tent brow – and I should also mention that you can lay out the inner tent on top of the footprint before you set up the poles as well.

It’s just whatever you find easier, finally, throw the fly over the tent and line up the zippers on the fly, with the doors on the tent and then make sure you attach the fly clips to the brow pole on the tent. To make sure the fly is centered over the tent, then go around and secure all four corners of the tent, along with staking out your vestibules and then tighten down the fly to your liking and you’re all set.

Let’s talk about the poles, the poles that you get with this tent are made from seven 0:01 aluminum, so they’re, very strong, lightweight and they’re definitely easy to set up now. This does differ from the MSR tent because, with the MSR you in aerospace, composite pole, which is supposed to be even lighter than the aluminum, and just as strong one thing I really like about the nature, hike and also the MSR is the clips that hold the Poles in place are made out of aluminum, so they seem really sturdy and well built, and you know they’re not going to break on you anytime soon.

Also, the stakes that come with the tent are aluminum as well, and they seem really well-built. The material of the tent is a 20d ripstop nylon, which is silicone coated to make it waterproof and with the MSR. It’s also a 20d ripstop nylon, but they coat it with their extreme coating is what they call it. So both tents should be waterproof. However, I haven’t tested the nature hike in the rain, yet so I’m not sure how waterproof it is, but I’ll throw up a article when I do test it, so you guys can see that in the future.

Another thing I like is the zippers on this tent. They seem really high quality for the price of the tent. I’m just really impressed with them now inside the tent. There’s plenty of room, definitely room for two people, and the cool thing is this: tent has two doors. So if you have to go pee in the middle of the night, you don’t have to step over the person you’re sleeping next to you can just go out your own door, which I think is a nice touch.

Also there are three pockets inside the tent one. On either end and one at the top and there’s also a hook as well at the top in case, you want to hang something and just like the MSR to prevent condensation. There are two vents on either side of the tent. Now the nature hike packs down into a relatively small package and you could probably get it even smaller with a compression sack it weighs in at 4 pounds 11 ounces.

So if you’re trying to save weight, I would go with the MSR, because the MSR weighs in at 3.5 ounces and it’s going to be about the same size as the nature hike. So, overall, I’m very impressed with the Munger. It’s basically the same tent as the MS are, but it comes in at a much much cheaper price, which I’m a huge fan of. I don’t like spending tons of money on tents, if I don’t have to – and I really like this one for the price.

Thank you guys for reading and for the full specs and the latest price check the link in the description and I’ll see you guys in the next article

I know that I keep mentioning Spunks, but I like these pumpkin seeds and you should try them too! They are just great for camping and other fun activities. The video below is a little bit of a look into the shop that makes Spunks.
