The MSR Freelite 1 is a freestanding, lightweight and fully featured 3 season tent designed for backpackers and adventures who pursue all kinds of activities. 

MSR says:

Designed for backpackers and adventurers who want to make the most of their time outdoors, the FreeLite 1 offers the comfort of a backpacking tent in an ultralight design that won’t weigh you down or take up much room in your pack. With its unified freestanding frame, it sets up quickly to offer soloists plenty of headroom—great for sitting up and planning the next day’s adventure, whether it’s hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail, mountain biking the Flume Trail, or sport climbing on the South shore. The ventilating micromesh canopy and large, easy-access door are just a few of this liberating tent’s livable features that make you feel free to tackle it all.

Whats great about the MSR Freelite Tents is that they are free standing, double wall tents that provides full protection without a big weight penalty and packs down small so it won't take up much room in your pack.

All FreeLite tents have been updated with MSR's strongest tent poles - Easton Syclone Poles. They are made from aerospace composite materials which resist breaking in fierce winds, boosting the reliability of your tent. The flysheet has also been treated with an ultra-durable waterproof coating called Xtreme Shield which lasts 3 times longer than standard coatings (check out the attached video).

Both of these updates are a huge welcome as the two small drawbacks we had with the previous models have now been solved.

When weight is a critical factor but livability also matters in your choice of a tent, MSR's ultralight FreeLite Tents are an ideal choice and a great option for a weekend backcountry trip or two-week thru-hike.

If you would like a footprint for this tent you will need the MSR Universal 1 Footprint (sold separately).

Lighter than air

Remove the cardboard tag and spare seam sealant and the tent with all its poles, bags and pegs weighs 1048g on my scales. I’m 6’3 and 52 chest. I fit inside with length to spare. The tent pitches easily, & is semi- free standing with its Y shaped “uni-pole” and cross member. I can’t imagine how you pitch the outer first or find a video showing how. Nothing outside my expectations so no marking down. The open topped stuff sack made packing it away simple, could be useful in wind and rain on a morning. Can’t wait to try it out in anger next Spring in the Scottish Highlands, where I’ll use a footprint to protect the tent inner from myself, mostly, and any sharp debris I miss when pitching on rough spots.
