Famous for their light weight and fantastic quality, MSR tents are the item of choice for lightweight backpackers. The Elixir series are designed for more comfort and space, while still remaining lighter than most tents on the market. The Elixir 3 is a freestanding tent, meaning it can be set up in a number of ways. Alternating the use of the footprint, inner tent, and flysheet means you can set up for a night sheltered from the wind and rain, or have a lighter set-up in warmer weather, allowing you to look out at the stars.

With all the features you expect from MSR, the freestanding Elixir 3 tent offers campers and backpackers an extremely livable 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 new larger vestibules with 35% more storage space. 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.
  • Livable: Unique pole geometry optimizes headroom and fits three mats; adaptable rainfly allows for excellent views; built-in gear lofts and glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls enhance livability. Polyurethane waterproof coating.

  • Fast & Light Setup: Includes an MSR Elixir Footprint that allows for a lightweight Fast & Light setup with rainfly.

  • Easy Setup: Freestanding system features color-coded poles, clips and webbing, plus red vestibules for fast and easy setup.

  • Privacy: Mesh and solid fabric panels offer ventilation, warmth and privacy.

  • Includes: Tent body, rainfly, poles, footprint, stakes, guy lines, stuff sack, setup instructions.

In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives the MSR team today: The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment
is the key to unlocking greater adventures.
