The Carbon Reflex 2 Person Tent is an ultralight spin on MSR's successful Hubba Hubba 2p tent. This tried-and-true style utilizes carbon fiber poles and a 20D ripstop nylon fly to cut back on the weight. It's not freestanding, but setup is super simple; for most conditions you can just stake down the corners of the body and the vestibules. It has two side-entry doors so you and your tent-mate don't have to climb over each other, and two vestibules so you can keep your stuff separate. Just because you're sharing a two person tent doesn't mean you have to interact at all. In fact, the Carbon Reflex 2 is so light you'll find yourself using it as a spacious solo tent.

FEATURES of the MSR Carbon Reflex 2 Person Tent

  • Storage and Access: Redesigned rainfly and body offer two full vestibules and doors
  • Fast Set Up: Simple, non-freestanding design shaves extra weight

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible experience in the field and with customer service I took my Carbon Reflex 2 out on it's second one-night adventure this weekend. As back-country explorers know.. when a tent starts failing there is a very fine line between discomfort and very dangerous. I live in Southeast Alaska in a temperate rainforest and took this light-weight tent on an expedition far from town in a remote valley. Again, this was only the second one-night trip it has been taken on. It was windy, but not ridiculously windy (not abnormal conditions in the Pacific Northwest) and the velco rainfly completely failed immediately. Both ends would not remain shut and the metal clasps which are not even sewn on to the tent were ripped off by the wind. Wind and rain was funneling in both sides for the entire night as the tent walls sucked in and out ferociously. At one point I had to jump out of the tent at 2am in the pouring rain and wind in my socks to desperately try and re-stake down the fly that had been pulled out and started to fly away. This tent is not free-standing as you know and I was terrified for the entire night as I remained wide eyed awake holding the tent against the wind to try and maintain some sort of shelter for myself and my comrade. Hypothermia in backcountry Alaska is a very real threat and luckily the tent did not completely collapse although rain and wind was moving freely in through the wide-open vestibules. I really hate giving horrible reviews but this tent is basically garbage. The rainfly makes it completely un-reliable on any backcountry expedition. We did not expect wind, but you need to expect the unexpected. This tent was properly guyed and staked down. With a failing fly, I do not think this tent offers any more protection than a tarp and in fact, maybe even less because the shape is compromised when the fly is open and you can't control the fly's position to prevent rain from pummeling you. Customer service was not helpful and insulting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice weight, so-so rainfly My wife and I used this tent on a weekend in Arkansas and a 7 night trip in Grand Canyon NP. We zip our sleeping bags together and with that bit of space saving found the room adequate. I'm 5'11'' and when I sit up my head brushes the top. The biggest weakness of this tent is the rainfly. The vestibules are each closed with two metal hooks and a few pieces of velcro. I have not been able to figure out a way to close them without leaving large gaps through which wind and rain could pour in. I'm not saying it can't be closed securely but so far I haven't been able to do it. It takes careful positioning of the rainfly pegs to keep the fly from resting on the tent body. With this weakness I would not take this tent above treeline. I don't find the non-freestanding design to be a problem. Freestanding tents must be staked down or they'll go off on a trip without you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hate the Fly Bought this spring, excited for the lighter version. Extremely packable and light. Easy tent body set up, although it is NOT freestanding (but was ok for me since no tent truly is fully freestanding). The fly is where my frustrations lie. When purchased it stuck to itself like saran wrap. It was horrible to get unstuck and would re-stick to itself. Once open and on the tent it was ok. But repacked and brought back out it did the same thing. Very frustrating in even a little breeze and wanting to escape mosquitoes! I also had an issue trying to unhook the bottom hook on the fly from inside the tent, I had to reach out and put my hands in the dirt to get to it. Plus the hook-Velcro-hook-Velcro left gaps in the fly, but I did not test it in rain to see if it would leak or not. Also there is a flap over the top of the fly opening that makes entry lower and a bit harder to get in/out. I returned the tent sadly because of the fly issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tent-weak poles I've had this tent for sometime never had a problem until my last to camping trips . I lived (tested) two tents for 4 month 1st : MSR Carbon reflex 2. 2nd: traptent My MSR Carbon reflex 2 main pole broke and leaked...note:I've never seam seal until a few months ago. I used the repair tube to get me by(it worked). I'm planning a bike tour ,so I setup my MSR Carbon reflex 2 to make sure their wasn't any leaks...the main pole broke again in 2 places... I would recommend this tent if the poles was redone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Tent such a great tent for all purposes. The only problem being that you cant run passed your campsite you can only RAN, because it's past TENSE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome 3 season superlight option I've had my carbon reflex 2 for about three years and I can say that this thing has outperformed where I thought it would certainly fail. Wind is still kyrptonite to this tent if it is not fully guyed out it tends to lean with strong gusts; however with proper tension this tent will keep standing and prevent pole breaks. I have heard of poles snapping on this series but I haven't experienced this myself. I can say you must be gentle with the tent during setup and break down, but it isn't a super fragile tent when it is erected. Space in both vestibules is enough for boots and a bag not really a whole lot of room for cooking if its raining but manageable. I have camped alone with a friend and alone with a dog in this tent and all are comfortable. The tent isn't massive by any means but there is enough room for sitting up, changing and sleeping which is all I use my tent for. Keep the outside clean with some Grangers gear cleaner and sweep the interior not being freestanding you cannot pick up the tent to shake out dirt and this tent will last a long time. From short crag visits to fast and light two week trips or even just car camping its not a palace but it will keep you dry and out of the elements.
