MSR Elixir 2 Tent. Surprisingly lightweight and easy to assemble, the new MSR® Elixir 2 tent is an extremely livable performance backpacking tent—and a great value for all its features. Unlike many tents in this class, our 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 2—the most livable backpacking tent in its class—is your remedy.
Lightweight: Minimum weight is just 2.10 kg (4 lb 10 oz), or set up in Fast & Light® mode for 1.61 kg (3 lb 9 oz).
Livable: Unique pole geometry optimizes headroom and fits two mats; adaptable rainfly allows for excellent views.
Easy Access: Two large StayDry™ doors and two vestibules with optimized zipper orientation.
