MSR FreeLite 2-Person Ultralight Backpacking Tent

Lighten your pack without sacrificing space with the ultralight, semi-freestanding FreeLite™ 2, designed for people who want to make the most of their three-season adventures without being weighed down by their gear.

Half a pound lighter than the previous FreeLite, it still has the true rectangular floor (no foot taper like most other tents) and 39" of headroom. The micromesh tent body provides excellent ventilation (and stargazing) and has a waterproof bathtub-style floor to protect from the elements. Two no-curve tent doors keep you from having to crawl over your partner in the middle of the night, and feature zippers that are easy to use with one hand. They also zip closed to a single point so you always know where to open the door, even in the dark. New tech-friendly pockets feature cable ports at the corners for headphone and charging cords. Overhead gear loft pockets are perfect for headlamps, sunglasses and other quick-access items.

The FreeLite’s semi-freestanding design is easy and quick to set up. Super strong DAC® NFL tent poles, a DuraShield™ waterproof coating and taped seams keep the weather where it belongs - outside. The cutaway rainfly saves weight and features large vestibules for storing any gear you don’t want inside. Easy in-and-out vestibule doors have StayDry™ rain gutters to keep water from dripping onto you and your gear.
