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:

With all the features you expect from MSR, the freestanding Elixir 3 tent offers first-time (and long-time) backpackers an extremely livable, surprisingly lightweight backpacking tent at a great value.

The tent design provides plenty of headroom and space for three full-size adults and their mats, two large doors for easy entry, and two large vestibules for storing gear.

Balancing breathable mesh fabric with solid canopy fabric, the 3-season Elixir 3 tent provides ventilation, warmth and privacy, while the included footprint offers multiple setup options, including a freestanding Fast & Light pitch with rainfly.

MSR's Elixir 3 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.
