The MSR Freelite 3 tent incorporates lightweight technology, a hubbed pole system for easy setup, and maximized living space for 3 people.

This tent measures 84” x 68” and has 39.5 square feet of interior living space. Two vestibules cover a combined area of more than 17 square feet.

The walls of the tent have 10 denier polyester micromesh to provide ventilation while keeping bugs away. The floor is a tougher 15 denier ripstop nylon with a very durable DWR coating to keep you dry.

This tent includes only a single hubbed tent pole, making setup fast and simple. Easton’s virtually indestructible Syclone poles mean that your tent will hold up to the elements.

The tent body is protected by a 15 denier ripstop nylon rainfly coated with a long-wearing DWR treatment. The MSR Universal 3 Person Footprint-Regular (sold separately) fits the FreeLite 3 and can further protect your tent from wet ground, roots and rocks.

It’s an excellent backpacking tent.


Very light weight and has a small pack size. Setup is very fast and easy. Plenty of room for two with the possibility of fitting three if necessary. You can roll the rainfly half way back on a warm clear summer night and gaze up at the stars and not be bothered by the mosquitoes. All in all it’s a well built tent great for backpacking.


Not enough tent stakes.

Spacious for 2 and just enough room for 3


The Freelite 3 is an ultra lightweight backpacking tent that sleeps 2 comfortably with just enough floorspace to sleep 3 when necessary. Setup was simple, easy and quick. - Rectangular, non-tapering floor-plan allows for the "sardining" of 3 people. Two people sleep up and one down - The unique sculptural body of the tent creates a head space for the middle third person who is sleeping by the other 2 people's feet. - Open half a rainfly on either side for no condensation - Lightweight - Included stakes power through rocks and rubble - Lower fabric vs all mesh seems to cut down on drafts - The Freelite 3 can be picked up and moved when poles are set - Cleaning before packing up involves picking up the set tent and shaking any debris out one of the doors - Tent stuff sack is far easier to pack and better on gear than jamming into, and possibly ripping a traditional tent bag. Not really a "stuff sack" but an easy to load, feather-weight storage bag - Pole clips are durable aluminum vs the plastic of other brands - Lightweight Syclone poles - Black mesh becomes invisible at night for stargazing - Doors each have one long double zipper that can be positioned where most convenient for fumble free opening at night. - Multiple ceiling hang loops


- Traditional MSR/MOSS dark red color. I have a 25 year old MOSS tent and the red color is the same.
