    • Nook tent's light weight is easy for 2 packers to carry, and allows them to move fast; ample shoulder room allows both campers to sit up comfortably side by side
    • 1 end door simplifies access while saving weight; main pole and arch pole are all connected for fast and easy set up—even in the dark
    • In tight spots where staking out may be a challenge, the versatile MSR Nook can be set up and fully tensioned by using a trekking pole, not included
    • Attach a trekking pole across the foot of the tent on the outside with the included pole adaptor; this fully tensions the rear and ensures all space is available
    • Color coded stake-out loops, webbing, and poles make set up easy and intuitive
    • Clip construction ensures a fast and easy setup and keeps air circulating between tent and fly
    • 2 rainfly vents provide cross ventilation near the peak of the tent; vents line up with mesh canopy windows to help move warm moist air from the interior of the tent
    • Additionally, the No-Drip Door™ system allows further ventilation adjustment for any weather condition you might encounter
    • Since the vestibule comes out over the top of the vertical door, the vestibule can be left completely open in mild rain or mostly open in strong storms
    • 20-denier, high tenacity nylon rainfly material with a DuraShield™ coating provides an exceptionally weatherproof layer at minimal weight
    • 40-denier nylon floor material resists tears, cuts and abrasion to provide great performance over many years of adventure
    • Areas of extreme stress (rainfly corners and clip attachment points) are reinforced for extra durability
    • Bathtub floor wraps up the sides of the tent 10 in. to stop rain from splashing up and in; solid side walls cut down on drafts while mesh windows provide generous air movement
    • Internal stash pockets hold small necessities
    • 10 reinforced guy points ensure a strong and durable pitch
    • Adjustable stake-out loops on vestibule and front of the tent allow a taut pitch
    • Includes stuff sacks, guyline/tensioners and stakes
    • For a lightweight setup during nice weather, leave tent body behind; use the rainfly and footprint (sold separately) with the poles and stakes

    Please note: MSR products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    MSR Nook 2 Tentis rated4.6667out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromgreat little tentThis is a very durable and well made backcountry tent for its weight. It is small as most backcountry tents are. I've camped in snow, rain, and high winds (35+ mph) with no problems in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming . It does need to be guyed out properly though. Yes, I too wish it came more stakes and guy line. One should practice setting it up before taking it on a trip. It is bomber once you know how to guy it out. I've yet to have any issues with the fly contacting the tent wall excepting in some very high winds. I wish the was a guy out point where the vent spacer rod thingy is on the fly. The fly doesn't come all the to the ground but the bathtub floor extends above the lower edge of the fly so this hasn't been an issue relative to the conditions I've encounter so far. I've no problems with condensation so far. The trick is in the guying out of the tent. It packs up small. Light but not the lightest tent out there. This is not an ultralight tent but it is light considering how durable it is. The extra weight should translate into great durability. It is more weather resistant and aerodynamic than many other tents and should last longer under bad conditions that most other ultralight and lightweight tent. So far I have been very pleased with this tent and think it should hold up to years of use with proper care, maintenance, and storage.

    Rated5out of5byfromStrikes a really appealing balanceI bought this for year round backpacking and cross county ski touring. I wanted something fairly light weight but at the same time large enough to share and sturdy and weather resistant enough to handle snowy and wet conditions. The Nook is relatively expensive and not the lightest tent out there, but for me it strikes a great balance between price, weight, and functionality. With the tents there is a tradeoff between all the good things you want (enough room, sturdiness, durability, water tightness, ventilation) and basically cost and weight. The Nook isn't cheap, but its roomy, sturdy, well built, and so far camping in wet snow had minimal condensation and keep the moisture out. In addition it comes in under 4 lbs, even with the ground cloth (extra $). Basically there are cheaper tents out there and some ultralight tents that are much lighter, but for a durable and very light backpacking tent that you can expect to last a long time, and handle high winds and even a little snow, the Nook feels like a perfect balance of functionality, weight, and price. My only cons are that to properly ventilate additional lines are required beyond those provided. Practice setting it up in the backyard first and dial in your stake and line set up before taking it out for the first time. Otherwise a great tent and a purchase I feel really happy with.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood allrounderI have been to a couple of expeditions to Nepal climbing a few 6000er and approaching up to the 7000er. I will use the tent that is provided by the operator and it is usually just enough. When I got back recently, I decided to get my own tent and after a few weeks researching online I settled on the Nook and never regretted. Light: That is the first thing that you will realise about it. I just love how light it is. Everything is just so pack-able and really really light weight. Easy to set-up: That is the other major plus point. I could set this up within 10mins by myself. All you got to do is stake the four corners, connect all the poles, and clip the body to the poles and there you have it. Privacy: This is another really major major plus point. When you lie down inside the tent, the floor comes up to above your shoulders. Then the white walls comes up way above you, and then comes the netted walls. This allows for the occupants to have their own privacy without having people from the outside getting a peek inside the tent. Or having to put on the fly-sheet to get your privacy. At the same time there is ample ventilation. And coming from Singapore, a very humid country, ventilation is very important. Roomy: For 2 person, it is just enough. For 1 person, it is a condo. Improvements: To make it roomy for 2 person.
