  • MSR Elixir 3 Tent

    Lightweight and easy to set up, the MSR Elixir 3 is a super-livable, freestanding performance backpacking tent and an ideal choice for new or budget-conscious campers.


    • DuraShield PU coating on the fly and floor is specifically formulated for superior waterproof performance and lasts twice as long as standard PU coatings
    • Unique pole system and color-coded stakeout loops and clip webbing make setup fast and easy
    • Unique pole geometry creates optimized headroom for each person while the adaptable rainfly allows for stargazing
    • Mesh canopy windows and solid canopy fabric provide a great balance of venting, warmth, and privacy
    • Two large doors make entry/exit easier and the zipper orientation keeps the vestibule door out of the way for unrestricted access
    • Two large vestibules protect your gear from the elements
    • Light grey rainfly color allows for neutral light inside the tent; red floor makes it easier to find your gear
    • Multiple interior pockets help keep the inside of the tent neat and organized
    • Includes 6 aluminum stakes, lightweight guy-outs, and MSR Footprint

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.
