You just shelled out several months' salary for a shiny dual-suspension mountain trail dominator with two wheels. With little in the bank, the MSR Elixir 2, 2-Person, 3-Season Tent gives you on-the-go housing for all of your mountain-biking excursions. Now, instead of sleeping under or in your car after thigh-burning days in Fruita, CO, stretch out and enjoy a good's night sleep in this lightweight portable shelter. Prefer moving under your own power? This superlight, wildly livable tent may force you to spend a few extra days at the lake, just lounging.
Rugged 70D nylon on the bottom gets a shot of endurance from 3000mm polyurethane and DWR coatings. The body mixes mesh with solid fabric to keep you cool when it's warm, warm when it's cool, and dry no matter the temp outside. Made from 68D ripstop polyester and with taped seams, the DWR-treated fly lets fresh air flow without sharing such freedom with the rain. Two strong but light aluminum poles turn this mass of fabric into a delightfully spacious mobile abode. When winds threaten to blow your tent down, firm up your foundation by using the six (included) stakes.
Two doors and two roomy vestibules means you don't have to smell your adventure amigo's boots all night long. Instead, gaze upon the heavens through the star-patterned skylight. Even at its heaviest, 5lb 13oz, the Elixir 2 is still a superlight tent. Want to cut weight, but the tricks from your wrestling days no longer work? Just take the poles, rainfly, and MSR Footprint, and now you're only toting 3lb 9oz. Color-coding on the poles, clips, and webbing makes set up a breeze, even if you're color-blind.
