Description

Show Description

This simple shelter has enough livable room to make it nicer than just a sleep pod. The Freelite series includes MSR's lightest partially freestanding tents, great for weekend backcountry trips. The big doors and mesh canopy add a spacious feel, and the pared-back design and ultralight materials suit those who like to move freely with a "just right"–sized pack. The simple design has 2 vestibules and D-shaped doors, with enough room for 3 standard sleeping pads and a bit of gear, or 2 sleeping pads with tons of room for packs, gear and extras.

  • Full mesh canopy for lots of ventilation and low weight.
  • Hubbed pole design creates near-vertical walls that let you sit up.
  • Composite Easton Syclone poles flex under heavy winds, then bounce back to their original shape
  • MSR's Xtreme Shield waterproof coating on the fly and floor does away with conventional seam taping and won't degrade like traditional PU coatings.
  • Fly and floor are made of super-lightweight 15-denier nylon ripstop that's moderately durable, though a footprint is recommended for rough ground and longer trips.
  • Interior has loops for attaching a gear loft and has a mesh pocket.
  • For ultralight missions, pitch with just the rain fly and the Fast & Light Body or MSR Universal 3 Regular footprint (both sold separately) to save weight.
