Product Description

Product Description

The Nook tent offers a unique experience – plenty of livable room in a tent that doesn't take up much space to begin with. We designed this tent to fit comfortably in small backcountry sites, but offer spacious living for two. Weight and bulk are kept to a minimum to help you cover long days on the trail, but durability remains high. The result is a tent that's smart and livable, not just lightweight.


MSR Nook Tent

MSR Nook with rainfly
The MSR Nook comes with a full coverage rainfly.

The MSR Nook tent is designed to provide plenty of livable room in a relatively small footprint that can fit comfortably in small backcountry sites. Built for two campers, the Nook provides 88 inches of interior length so that you can stretch out fully, with a generous 38-inch ceiling height so that you can sit up. Weight and bulk are kept to a minimum to help you cover long days on the trail, but durability remains high. The result is a smart and livable lightweight tent.

Key Features:
  • Ultra light: At just over 3 pounds, the Nook tent is ideal for two fast-moving backpackers.
  • Compact and Spacious: Footprint fits in small backcountry tent sites, and interior comfortably accommodates two backpackers.
  • Durable: High Quality fabrics and welded reinforcements give the Nook tent the strength to perform in rugged conditions.
  • Well Ventilated: Mesh windows and rainfly vents minimize condensation.
  • Freestanding Setup: Add a trekking pole to make the Nook tent fully freestanding.

I bought this tent because of its limited weight while still offering more space then most other tents of similar weights. It is suitable for 2 persons with limited space for backpacks (at the end/beginning of the tent). Setting up the tent is reasonably simple. The tent is well ventilated and it persisted in a heavy storm + rain, although the outer tent is not covering the inner tent fully from the bottom, so in case of snow probably not the best choice.

I'm using my Nook primarily as a one-person tent, so it's rather tight interior space is not an issue. It's simple and straightforward to pitch, although staking the rear of the tent requires some finesse to avoid wrinkles on the floor from the single pole pulling back. Perhaps the trekking-pole option (fastener, but not pole, included) would help with this. The light weight design doesn't sacrifice strength. Tent, fly and poles are beautifully made, with careful attention to details, multiple guy points and reinforced stress points. Crucially, the fly attaches to the tent poles - not the case on a similar Marmot tent I'd been looking at. On a recent trip to Crater Lakes in Colorado, it rained and all night and the wind was severe, pummeling the tent from all directions. But had I brought plenty of guy-out cord (not included) and extra stakes. I ran two lines from each guy-out loop in different directions and anchored it to a stake or nearby tree, and that tent didn't budge or flap. Nor did a drop of rain get inside. I did use a Nook footprint underneath (sold separately), which put an extra layer between me and the damp ground. I also had the MSR Gear Shed with me, (even though I didn't bring the dog for which it was intended). That proved fantastic! It mates weather-tight with the Nook, is equally tough and guy-out-able, has room for all my gear and gives me a sheltered space to cook from (keeping the stove just outside the door) or take refuge in a downpour without having to remove boots or rain gear. One caveat - I used my own stakes that curve into a loop on top. They are much easier to press into and pull out of the dirt. The narrow-headed MSR's hurt the palm, unless you pound 'em in with a rock or mallet.
