The MSR Elixir 4 tent maximizes internal space and delivers durable 3-season backpacking or camping performance at a price that won't break your budget. A footprint is even included to add versatility and increase value.
The unique pole configuration of the tent provides 54 square feet of interior space and a full 48 inches of space-increasing interior height. The lightweight 7000-series aluminum poles are strong and durable. Poles, clips, and webbing are all color-coded to take the guess-work out of set-up, and aluminum stakes are included to aid in securing the freestanding pitch. Internal pockets allow you to make the most of available space by allowing you to store clothes and gear up and off of the floor. Two large doors lead to dual vestibules that offering a combined 24.5 square feet (12.25 square feet per vestibule) of additional protected storage space.
A balance of mesh and solid canopy fabric construction keeps weight to a minimum while providing venting, warmth, and privacy. The mesh panels and integrated fly vents allow for air circulation that combats the build-up of condensation on the interior of the tent. In warm, clear weather, you can tie back the exterior doors to allow even greater airflow.
The tent employs taped seams on the bathtub style floor and on the rainfly. Protective PU coatings on the 68D ripstop polyester fly and 70D taffeta nylon floor prevent leaks and fend off weather. Stress points on the tent body, floor, and fly are reinforced to prevent tear-outs.
The included footprint adds durability by protecting the floor of the tent from mud, ground water, and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles. It also enables you to leave the tent body behind (when conditions allow) and use just the poles, footprint, and fly to pitch the tent as a minimalist freestanding shelter.
