The MSR Freelite 2 Tent is a freestanding tent for backcountry adventuring. Sleeps two and pitches quickly, so there won't be any time wasted once you stroll into camp. Dual doors make for quick exits in the middle of the night and the two vestibules ensure each hiker has space to protect their gear. Plenty of mesh to allow a cool breeze, or ditch the inner tent and go even lighter with just the fly, poles and footprint (footprint sold separately). Get out into the wilderness and enjoy your stay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed with build quality I purchased this for long weekends away to the blue mountains. Have taken it away once and whilst the weight and design are good the build quality is poor. After one trip the flynet has feathered / frayed away from the zip creating a hole. This seems to be from no fault in use rather than a problem during manufacture. I contacted MSR who claim no responsibility with it being a manufacturing fault and declared i must pay for the repair despite the tent being less than a few months from purchase. Very disappointing given the cost. Would chose another manufacturer in the future

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tent took its maiden voyage up the Wild Olympic coast From Rialto Beach to Lake Ozette, it performed perfectly. This tent is very easy to put up, thanks to the single pole design that opens up to a very comfortable roomy living space. The 2 person version was perfect for 1 person plus my pack/gear. It didn't feel cramped inside and at about 3 pounds (with the ground tarp) it wasn't a heavy burden to haul. The weather was outstanding on this outing so I really didn't get to test how dry it kept me in rain, but that will be assessed on a later adventure....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect weight! We are loving this new tent, we were able to take it with us to California this past week camping along the coast. The only complaint is that it is not freestanding. There were some coast areas that the ground was too hard to get a stake into. But the weight for travel and size was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Solo Fully Enclosed Double Wall Shelter! I acquired a MSR Freelite 2 shelter for use as a solo shelter that would give me a good bit of livable space while being double wall and fast&easy to setup. The vast majority of the time I use it in 'bug net' mode, leaving off the tarp. At 50" of width and 36" of height the inner makes for a really sweet bug shelter. Setup is fast & easy, even for a single person, even in light to moderate wind. Headroom is pretty good. The "in your face when laying down" issue is not too big of an issue - slightly more vertical walls (available in other shelters MSR offers) always be nice, but trade offs have to be made. The doors are 'U-slanted' style zippers. A bit like the standard J-style zipper, and angled in a slanted way, to follow the thread/sew lines. This does make them a bit harder to get out of than a standard J-style, or even inverted J-style zipper, because the top part of the zipper forces you to duck under it. The pole system is a single piece pole system. That makes me happy. I really do not like having multiple poles you have to put together. This, of course, leads to some of the design limitations (less vertical walls, stakes required for foot end, U-slanted zippers, etc) but it also results in the pole system being less weight. Again, a trade off. The 15D Nylon Ristop 1200mm PolySil tarp fabric is pretty good. I would like to see them go with something lighter weight to bring down the overall shelter weight. The pack volume on this shelter just seems a bit big to me. Granted it has a dedicated pole system, but the inner+tarp by themselves just seem to be larger than my other double wall shelters. I find myself putting each piece (tarp/inner/groundsheet) into three different stuff sacks, just to help me pack my backpack in a manner that allows for better distribution. All in all the Freelite 2 is an exceptional solo, fully enclosed, double wall, full size, shelter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tent This tent has been awesome. Very lightweight and packable. Used in conditions from hot and humid to below freezing in the snow and this tent has handled everything I've put it through. Haven't tried the rain fly and footprint only setup yet, but that's next. Tent floor fabric is on the thin side so campsite selection is important. I've only used it as a 1 person tent and have a huge amount of room for just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! The overall design of this tent is great, my first night using it there was a very severe thunderstorm with heavy rain, I stayed dry as a bone. It takes longer to set up than other tents I've owned but who cares, lightweight, two doors with roomy vestibules and a great design are what drew me to this tent.
