MSR's Elixir tents combine MSR design and quality with lightweight rather than ultralightweight materials to produce a series of tents that perform well but are heavier and less costly than MSR's leading edge products.

MSR says:

Surprisingly lightweight and easy to assemble, the new MSR Elixir 2 tent is an extremely livable performance backpacking tent—and a great value for all its features. 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.

MSR's Elixir 2 Tent is all MSR in terms of its quality of materials, design and construction, there's no compromise on performance but there is on weight. The Elixir series are heavier than similar sized MSR tents because they're made with slightly heavier materials, heavier also means cheaper (in our world), so MSR have produced an excellent and relatively inexpensive tent where the only compromise is its weight.

We like the blend of mesh and fabric panels on the inner tent for venting, warmth and privacy. These tents have two doors and storage areas, a wide area head height and near vertical internal walls.
