MSR Elixir 2 person tent.


The Elixir 2 Tent from MSR is a freestanding backpacking tent that provides an excellent combination of ventilation, warmth and privacy in a lightweight package. The geometric design of the poles helps to maximise head space in the living area for better comfort on trips that involve more than just one night.
Highly versatile this tent can be used with just the footprint and flysheet for fast and light trips or as a whole with the inner. When using with the inner, the flysheet can be reclined to offer better ventilation and a better view without losing out on privacy thanks to the thoughfully positioned mesh panels. Two large StayDry doors at each side of the tent feature Rain Drains to reduce the chance of you getting wet on the way in and way out of the tent while the two large vestibules are great for stowing kit.

  1. :

    We have used the MSR Elixir 2 tent on many of our expeditions (see picture gallery) and it truly is a fantastic tent.
    we have used it on beaches in North America on our canoe expeditions, to rocky outcrops and then this year in Sweden, where technically its not a 4 season tent, but it performed well, we just wanted to test it and it didn’t disappoint.
