Surprisingly lightweight and easy to assemble, the new MSR Elixir 2 tent is an extremely livable performance backpacking tent-and a great value for all its features. Unlike many tents in this class, our freestanding tent design features two large doors, two large vestibules for storing gear and true-to-size capacity for two. The versatile tent balances breathable mesh fabric with solid canopy fabric to provide ventilation, warmth and privacy, while the included footprint offers multiple setup options, including a freestanding Fast & Light pitch with rainfly. Whether you're planning your first backpacking trip or your next one, the Elixir 2-the most livable backpacking tent in its class-is your remedy.

My only gripe with this tent would be the stakes. Comes with standard aluminum annodized sheppard hooks. Not a big deal, I picked up some groundhogs and you're good to go in windier conditions. I also added MSR's universal gear loft which fits just fine inside packed.
Overall materials and build quality is top notch!
Been backpacking twice with this both during thunderstorms and I have to say it's a great tent. No issues with leaking and held up in fairly strong winds with the groundhog stakes. One other thing I replaced with this was the bag it actually came in. It's probably two times as large as it needs to be. I am using an Osprey 12L dry sack which is the perfect size to get this nicely compressed. Also if your tent is wet and you have no option but to pack it away the dry sack will keep other things from getting wet. The poles obviously do not fit in the 12L sack but are easily stored separately in my backpack.
1) It is very well made. Material thickness, stitching, design, etc... I love the pivoting pieces that join the aluminum poles together. They offer added strength once pitched, and they also make it easier to pitch. I love the buckles to attack the rain fly to the tent.
2) I'm a bigger guy - 6'1" and 220 lbs. I went with a 2-person tent as to not be crammed in, and there's ample room for myself and all of my gear inside. This is a perfect size for one larger person, in my opinion.
3) The Amazon description is a bit misleading in parts. With all included components, this test is 5 lbs 13 oz. Amazon only offers a "minimum weight", which I assume is less the footprint. I imagine most people will use and carry around the footprint, therefore this would be the more appropriate weight to advertise. At almost 6 lbs, I may have no purchased this one and went with a lighter one, but in reality, it doesn't seem that heavy while carrying it - so I'm ok with it. Also, the image here shows a white or white-ish rain fly. Not that it's a big deal, but it is definitely gray. I was hoping for white to let more light in - not a big deal though.
4) The rain flay attaches very tightly and when taught, it does not contact the inner tent material. This is an excellent design and will surely keep me dry. As well, the 1500mm rain flay feels very impressive. It looks and feels more impervious to rain water than any other tent I've owned.
