This simple shelter has liveable room inside to make it nicer than a sleep pod. The big door and mesh canopy add a spacious feel, but it's compact and light enough to suit those who like to move fast with a just-right-sized pack.
- For 2020, MSR updated the fly with a waterproof sealant along the seams, adding a layer of protection between you and the elements.
- Xtreme Shield waterproof coating on fly and floor, won't degrade like PU coatings.
- Full mesh canopy for ventilation.
- Composite poles flex under heavy winds, then bounce back to their original shape.
- Super-lightweight fly and floor are moderately durable, but a footprint is recommended for rough ground or long trips.
- Interior mesh pocket and loops for an optional gear loft.
- For ultralight missions, pitch with just the rain fly and the Fast & Light Body or MSR Universal 2 Regular footprint (both sold separately) to save weight.
