Surprisingly lightweight and easy to assemble, the new MSR® Elixir tent is an extremely livable performance backpacking tent—and a great value for all its features. Unlike many tents in this class, MSR's freestanding tent design features two large doors, two large vestibules for storing gear, and true-to-size capacity for two. The versatile tent balances breathable mesh fabric with solid canopy fabric to provide ventilation, warmth and privacy, while the included footprint offers multiple setup options, including a freestanding Fast & Light® pitch with rainfly. Whether you’re planning your first backpacking trip or your next one, the Elixir —the most livable backpacking tent in its class—is your remedy.
