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 Favorite I go on a few backpacking trips per year. This tent works well for 3 people. I would recommend the mud tarps and shelf to help create more space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what we expected! We selected this tent after much research, because when my daughter went off to University (in British Columbia, so I understood why she wanted the tent!), she took the family tent, a Marmot Limelight 3. I was really happy with the Limelight, but my husband wanted something a little lighter and easier to pack. We couldn't really justify going ultra-light, and the MRS Elixir was right in our price range and comparable to the Limelight. It is just a tiny bit lighter (than the Limelight) and the stuff sack fits a little better in my husband's backpack. We've only been able to use it once- at the Michigan Homebrewer's weekend (it looked TINY compared to the campers most of the homebrewer's brought!) but it was perfect for us and very easy to set up with generous space and a few pockets in the right places. Can't wait to take it a bit further next summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tent Absolutely love this tent. Got the 3 for me my 2 dogs and 1 additional person. My friend and I took it camping in NC with my 2 dogs and we still had plenty of room. Took it camping in NC a different time and a thunderstorm was right over us and it was pounding rain, didnt get ever slightly wet and it was super sturdy. would 100% get this again/recommend it to a friend. Oh and I can easily put it up by myself in less than 20 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from # is Company 2 is a crowd I have the Elixer 2 which I found okay as a solo tent but wanted something a bit roomier for multi week climbing trips that was more friendly with the Thermorest cot and Mondo pad that would also be a bit friendlier for two on non car-side adventures. The Elixer 3 with the Gear Shed was perfect for a recent 16 day jaunt to Ten Sleep to climb. Easy to set up, more than adequate storage. When I am away from the cra I use a hammock most of the time but the Elixer 3 would be perfect if you needed to bunk up with another person and didn't want to feel crowded without adding a great deal of weight on 3 season adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trail Tough! This tent has held up through everything I've put it through... and it's seen some rough terrain. Recently, four of us were hiking along the PCT near Crater Lake and we were caught in a torrential downpour. We quickly set up camp for the night to get out of the rain. The rainfly and bathtub floor kept me 100% dry the entire time. The two vestibules gave shelter to my soaking gear, and when I woke up my gear was dry. I cannot recommend this product enough. The zippers are holding up very well after a year of regular use, the poles are well built for durability and flexibility, the tent cleans easily, and is easily big enough to fit three people. I'm 6'3" and have no issues inside the tent with my girlfriend, sleeping pads, down blankets, and down sleeping bags. Excellent product!
