Comments about MSR Elixir 3 Tent:
My husband and I bought this for him to use while motorcycle touring and so that we can use it backpacking as well. It is easy to set up and take down and we liked this feature for easy evening set ups and morning takedowns while traveling. We love everything about it in terms of those features. We are learning,however, about the challenge of condensation. The first night the tent stayed dry and the interior of the rain fly was full of moisture even with the vents open. The second night we tried leaving the rain fly half off. The dew was Very heavy and the tent got wet and some of our stuff inside touching the tent walls also got wet. The third night we were in the mountains, used the rain fly, it rained and we stayed nice and try. The condensation was much less. So it must have a lot to do with the environment. I have to let go of any expectations of packing up a dry tent unless I am able to take the time to let it dry.
