Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

The MSR Elixir 2 Tent is a backpacking tent with living space for two. Spend your weeks on the trail, sleep in the woods with the protection of breathable mesh and ripstop nylon to protect as you snooze. The mesh lets air through while keeping buggies out and the rainfly (and floor) is coated to keep the wet out. Large doors and vestibules offer space for entering and exiting as well as storing your pack during the night. Tuck your headlamp in the mesh pockets on the tent walls, so you'll know just where to grab for it when you hear a bump in the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected First tent. I was worried it would be too big for my pack. But everything fit quite well! Everything packed up pretty nice and the poles I just put on my outer shell

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elixer 2 tent I bought this tent in the spring. It gets used extensively. I’m happy with the tent but the fly leaks so I have to cover with a tarp

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described, a great tent! I bought the Elixer 1 last year for a 5-day backpacking trip and was very satisfied, so sought this one out when I needed a two-person. Great sale price at the right time on Moosejaw! Easy and quick to set up & pack up, roomy enough for two average-size people with plenty of room for packs in the vestibules (which kept them perfectly dry in the rain). Be sure to use the vents to avoid condensation - the supports that hold them open aren't obvious at first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for two hunters. This is my second Elixir (first one was stolen). It has has enough room for two big men and their gear while bow hunting. It is easy to set up, even in the dark. Great all around tent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rainfly does not last I bought this tent in 2017. I owned one before and was happy with it. The tent itself is great. I remember a little leakage from the rainfly the first time I went camping with the first one I bought but nothing huge. However, I bought a new one and stored the tent for a few years while out of the country- I had set it up in my yard when I first got it and again in 2020….seemed OK. When I went to take it on a trip this summer though, the seem seal of the Rainfly was flaking off everywhere - made a mess on the floor and in the backpack. It leaked HORRIBLY when it rained. I know I owned it a few years but wouldn’t expect a tent of this quality to become completely useless in that amount of time. Will definitely need a new Rainfly. It seemed thin even where there wasn’t a seem so I’m not sure resealing it will completely fix the problem. :( I’ve seen others complain about the Rainfly. It’s too bad because the tent itself is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indestructible Man, this tent is tough. I've had it for a few years now, backpacking mostly in Eastern Texas and Western Louisiana, but with a trip to Philmont thrown in, and this thing has stood up very well. I've been caught in more heavy rains than I care to ever hike in again, and I've never had more than condensation inside the tent. It is very water proof. This includes a time where my campsite was evacuated due to the weather. While everyone else was soaked, my gear remained perfectly dry despite the several inches of standing water around and under the tent. The floor was floating up around my sleeping pad, and perfectly dry thanks to that little bathtub it's got. This tent also did very well at Philmont in New Mexico dealing with some high winds, and always having to forget something, I forgot my footprint for that. After 11 days in the rocky, mountainous backcountry, the tent was perfectly fine regardless. The ventilation could be a little better, and it can be a pretty warm tent (good or bad depending on where you are). It's also a little heavier than some other backpacking tents, but I don't mind carrying the extra weigh even if I'm on my own. With two people it's extremely manageable. All in, this is my favorite tent that I've ever had, and I'm unlikely to switch to something else for quite some time. Well worth the investment.
