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).

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible rain fly Granted I bought this tent in 2016ish, but this is by far the worst tent I’ve ever purchased In my life. It has had the least amount of use and the interior of the rain fly, and footprint has basically degraded away. Spoke to CS and they told me to too old for them to repair, and that either I buy a new one or reseal the seems wash the coating off and reapply new coating. Unfortunately this was my first and last MSR tent. I’ve treated my marmot, big agnes, and zpacks tent way worse and used them far more often with much better results. I only own their pocket rocket now. 2 stars only because the main tent is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I find it very roomy. I find it very roomy. I’ve read some reviews that say the fly will leak because of a poor glue. Have u changed the glue’s formula?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hot as Hades I didn't consider that the two doors are not screened from top to bottom and camped in extremely hot weather. Even with the rain fly removed, there is almost no air coming through the tent, making it nearly unbearable to sleep. I have an older MSR Fusion 2 that is excellent in air circulation. I should have considered that before purchasing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elixir 3 Sorry to jump on the band wagon, but I bought an Elixir 3, after my first Elixir 3 wore out. Needless to say my son and I have run into the same problem with the new tent. If you do not put a separate tarp over the rain fly, you are going to get wet. We are in the market for a new tent for our rappelling and caving adventures . Until reading these reviews, I thought our problem was with us setting up the tent incorrectly, I’m believing that after a good run on the first Elixir 3, the second Elixir 3 is not as well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable 4 Season Option We purchased this tent over a year ago, primarily for car camping, It is easy to set up, very durable, and quite spacious. This past weekend, I put it to the test on a three-day winter camping trip. Although marketed as a 3 Season tent, it performed better than expected over the weekend. The ground cloth was effective at keeping the tent floor dry. The two vestibules were ideal for removing/donning ski boots, and provide ample wind protection when preparing meals. The fact that it's free standing was a huge bonus. Granted the stock tent stakes were about useless in the snow, but luckily I had two MSR Snow pickets which proved ideal for holding the tent down during one very windy evening. Nice to have the extra headroom too, making it that much easier to dress /undress before heading out in the snow. The mesh roof panels didn't help keep in the heat, but I also wasn't covered in condensation/frost each morning when I woke up either. We pulled all our gear in pulks/sleds, so the weight / bulk of this tent wasn't a big deal for me. If you only plan to winter camp a few times each season, and a true 4 season tent isn't in your budget, I would seriously give this tent a good look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tent I've had the Elixir 3-person tent for a few years now and it receives a lot of use throughout the year. Everything from weekend camping trips, to 8 day excursions. It's been through insane rain storms, snow storms and wind storms and it's kept me warm and dry every time. I saw some of the other reviews below stating how it's not waterproof and I couldn't disagree more. This tent is a beast and can withhold any storm. It's durable and reliable. A great purchase and bang for your buck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof Love the design of tent and it’s worked great the last year until I camped in rain. The tent did not stop the water at all it just poured straight through the material and I had to sleep in a puddle.

Does this product come with a footprint? Thank you!

Asked by: Audi248
Hiya Audi248, thanks for your question! Yes, the footprint is included with this tent. Hope this helps!

What are the dimensions of the floor? Have you any idea why people had bad experiences with water thru the fly and floor?

Asked by: Kaykay
Hey there Kaykay, thanks for the question! This tent has internal dimensions of 84" x 68". Sadly I can't say for sure why some people seem to be having waterproof issues with this fly while some don't, it seems to be random from what I can see. If you have any problems with this rainfly or tent body just let us know, we'll do all we can to work with you and MSR to make it right. I hope this helps!
