The MSR Flylite 2-Person Shelter is a backpacking shelter for two on the trail. The single wall tent is all about minimalist, weighing only 1lb, 9oz and pitches with the help of two trekking poles. While the front is held up by your trekking poles, the back is propped with the help of a single DAC 9mm pole and nine included stakes work to guy it out and stake it to the ground. The rainfly is 10D ripstop nylon, 1200mm polurethane & silicone coated with a 20D flooring with the same waterproof coating to keep wet weather out. The large awning adds a touch of shade when relaxing around camp and mesh vents keep everything cool yet bug-free on the inside. Full protection and yet so little weight.

Would this tent work well on a beach to provide shade and shelter? We have to walk with all of our gear and the weight is very appealing. I'm concerned that crushed seashells could puncture the that a valid concern?

Asked by: Wanda 77
Hey there, I would be careful about the terrain that I pitched this on. The material for this tent is 20D ripstop nylon 1200mm polyurethane & silicone, which will not be compromised through regular wear, but can get torn more easily than other non weight-saving tents on hard or rocky ground. If this tent is laid down on sharp seashells there is a chance it could be torn or punctured.
