Product Description

Elixir 2 Lightweight Backpacking Tent

New: Lightweight, spacious backpacking tent for two.

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, 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.

 

  • Livable: Unique pole geometry optimizes headroom and fits two mats; adaptable rainfly allows for excellent views.
  • Fast & Light Setup: Includes an MSR Elixir Footprint that allows for a lightweight Fast & Light setup with rainfly.
  • Easy Setup: Freestanding system features color-coded poles, clips and webbing for fast and easy setup.
  • Privacy: Mesh and solid fabric panels offer ventilation, warmth and privacy.

MSR Elixr 2 Tent. - 07 May 2017

This review is for: MSR Elixir 2 Lightweight Backpacking Tent - Grey

My first lightwight packing tent and I'm very pleased.
I took it on a 3 day bike trip following the Sarn Helen route and it was easy to set up after a long days riding. Comfy to spend the night in with plenty of headroom and the next morning I was impressed with how easy it was to pack away.
I would recommend this tent.

Excellent backpacking tent - 30 Dec 2016

This review is for: MSR Elixir 3 Lightweight Backpacking Tent (2017)

Lightweight, easy to put up, sturdy construction and very roomy inside (got the 3-man to 2 people as a bonus but well spaced even for 3). The 'star gazing' thing is just a gimmick though as you have to star gaze through netting! Also note that the mesh is completely see through so not much privacy there. No problems with condensation on the times we used it and it kept out the rain well. Make sure you peg down the vestibules properly or the zip is a pain to do up.

Great tent, but fly sheet bit fiddly - 24 Jul 2016

This review is for: MSR Elixir 4 Lightweight Backpacking Tent - Green

Great tent and really easy to put up. Perfect for the the four of us - two adults and two dogs.
As far as we can see, there are two downsides to this tent, the standard guy lines that is comes with are a little thin and can be difficult to see (the cure there is the msr tags, or as we've done, the night zipper pulls) and the fly sheet, is actually quite fiddly to put on without it touching the tent inner on the two diagonally opposite corners, the corners adjacent to the tent openings. Otherwise, comfortable roomy and very well made.

Excellent Tent - 02 Jun 2016

This review is for: MSR Elixir 3 Lightweight Backpacking Tent - Green (2017)

As always from MSR the products they produce are always high quality but usually the price reflects this.
This is a cheaper tent from their range. But this is a bargain, its not really lightweight. enough to backpack with and is a tad bulky, but if you're travelling light or you can split between you its ideal.
Its easy to assemble and is very stable considering its height
It handles the rain very well and the guttering stops you getting wet when you open the door
Great value, Its very well made. I did worry about its waterproofness but not a worry

High quality tent - 15 Mar 2016

This review is for: MSR Elixir 2 Green Lightweight Backpacking Tent - 2017 (Ex-Display)

Very impressed with this tent. I have only used it for 3 nights but it kept us dry and it feels high quality.
(I had previously bought the Vango Mirage 200 but returned it to the shop because it felt low quality and was too small.)
I am 6' 2" and there was plenty of room to lie flat. Very spacious!
