DWR tech

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSR Tents are the BEST I selected the MSR Elixir 2 after an extensive search. My primary use will be bike touring in Central and South America. I didn’t want a super ultra-light because I was concerned about long term strength. I also wanted a tent that I could take backpacking. This tent will serve both purposes. The materials are high quality and I’m confident they will survive the wet tropics and windy mountains. I did a pre-trip pitch and the tent goes up with ease. I really like that it includes a footprint. Having trekked and climbed in Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador, I really wish I had this tent. Some people might place it into the car-camping category or short hike category, but I think they’re a bunch of wimps. Its light. I'd take it on a two week self-supported mission to remote areas. No hesitation. I’ve been at high altitude and in humid jungle with inexpensive in-country equipment and I must say that this tent will make my future trips more enjoyable. Good quality, good weight, great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent. Easy to assemble. I used this tent to camp in Yosemite and it worked great. It kept me warm, it's easy to assemble and the tarp floor definitely helps keep it clean and dry.

Aside from the foot print that attaches under the tent does the tent have a tarp bottom itself?

Asked by: Chloe
Hey there! The MSR Elixir 2-Person Tent has a footprint included. Huzzah! As for an additional covering for the inside part of the tent's floor, most tents do not come with something like that these days. If you have a dog with sharp nails or something like that and you're worried about the inner part of the tent's floor being torn, you could use any sort of tarp, canvas, or even a blanket to provide extra protection. If you have a really cute dog you can send pictures addressed to "Galactus."
