The MSR Elixir 3 Tent is a backpacking tent with plenty of space for 3 hikers. You should probably tent with people you know, not with some randoms on the trail. Either way, there are 2 spacious doors to get in and out of, plus 2 vestibules when the rainfly is up to tuck a pile of shoes or your packs under. The footprint is included, so you can even choose to go Fast & Light (rainfly, poles and footprint only).

FEATURES of the MSR Elixir 3 Tent

  • Livable with larger vestibules, built-in gear lofts, glow-in-the-dark zippers, and an easy-to-find red vestibule door
  • Unique pole geometry optimizes headroom; adaptable rainfly for excellent views
  • Larger vestibule for 35% more storage space
  • Two new built-in gear lofts and glow zippers
  • Easy access with two large Stay Dry doors and two vestibules
  • Maximum floor space comfortably fits three mattresses side-by-side
  • Mesh and solid fabric panels offer ventilation, warmth and privacy

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 1 out of 5 by from First canoeing trip with brand new MSR elixir 3 cut short Researched since last August until March if this year looking for a tent that would keep the sand flies out. Read every review and purchased the MSR Elixir 3! Used for the first time this week and I'm now writing a review at home on what was suppose to be day 3 of 5. First night uneventful, sand flies stayed on the opposite side of the screen and I slept like a baby! Loved the tent! Last night on day 2 and only second day every using, we had a light rain and after 30 minutes we had rain water dripping into the tent from the top, through the fly at 0330 in the morning! Trying to call MSR today, but could only leave a message...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this but the rain fly set up failed I was very excited about getting this tent after loving my Moss 4 season for 16 years. Loved the multi panel set up for the tent, felt good. But the rain fly made me take it back. The third pole that creates tension on the top of the tent was almost impossible to get the rain fly on. The attachment points on the rain fly were a testament to this as they were so seam taped it made it even harder. And I found the small three stack gromits for the ground sheet, tent and rainfly hard to adjust. I get the reasoning for some of these choices, but the several ounces in weight loss compromise easy set up. If you have large hands or have hand fatigue from living a full life, you will find this tent hard to assemble. Wanted to love this, but took it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended! Not super light for backpacking but split it 3 ways and it will be! Easy to set up and very affordable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fab but not baboon-proof We love this lightweight, easy yet spacious tent for our kids. Unfortunately, on safari last week, we discovered that the poles are not baboon-proof! We returned from a game drive to find our 'rock tent' somewhat squashed. Both main poles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent I bought this tent for its compact size. I use it when camping with my mptorcycle. Weight isnt as big an issue as size when carried on the bike. Fits in a drybag well with other gear and is roomy enough for 2 to stretch out. A queen size air mattress fits perfectly in it if youd need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortress Tent Awesome tent. Very light but also very sturdy. Very intuitive set-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow, wind, and rain I've had this tent for two years and put it through roughly 30 nights of use. We chose the Elixer three because we wanted a versatile tent that could be used for both car camping and backpacking while accommodating two adults and a dog. The tent continues to impress me each time we use it. Most recently we received three inches of snow while on a trip and despite the 28 degree weather stayed warm and dry. I've had many tents with a "bathtub" design but have had many leak from seams after just a few uses. This tent however is impenetrable. We accidentally pitched the tent in a flood plain during a Texas thunderstorm and even though we could feel water running under the tent like a water bed we stayed completely dry. I have nothing but good things to say about this product and MSR has made me a customer for life.

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.
