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.

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.
