Pitching a tent shouldn't feel like assembling furniture. The MSR Elixir 2 tent has color-coded poles, clips and webbing, and red vestibules that make it easy to erect this roomy 3-season shelter.


  • 2 large doors and vestibules offer plenty of elbow room
  • Construction pairs breathable mesh with solid canopy fabric to promote warmth, ventilation and privacy
  • Pole geometry optimizes head and elbow room; built-in gear lofts and glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls enhance livability
  • Leave the body of the tent behind and create a minimalist shelter with only the included footprint, poles and rainfly
  • Adaptable rainfly allows for an excellent view
