Updated for 2018

The most livable 2-person backpacking tent in its class.

The MSR Elixir 2 tent is an extremely livable performance backpacking tent and an ideal option for backpackers seeking an easy-to-assemble tent at a great value. 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.
