Show Description

This simple shelter has enough livable room to make it nicer than just a sleep pod. The Freelite series are MSR's lightest freestanding tents, and are great for weekend backcountry trips. The big door and mesh canopy add a spacious feel, the pared back design and ultralight materials suit those who like to move freely with a just-right-sized pack. The simple design has 1 vestibule and a D-shaped door, with enough room for a standard sleeping pad and some gear.

  • Full mesh canopy for lots of ventilation and low weight.
  • Hubbed pole design creates near vertical walls that let you sit up .
  • MSR's DuraShield coatings on fly and floor last twice as long as standard.
  • Fly and floor are made of super lightweight 15-denier nylon ripstop that's moderately durable, a footprint is recommended for rough ground and longer trips.
  • Interior has loops for attaching a gear loft and has a mesh pocket.
  • Pitch it with just the fly and optional footprint for a superlight shelter.
  • Includes 9 MSR 6in. Needle stakes and 4 lengths of 1.8mm red reflective guy line with cord tensioners.
