Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly bad design I got this tent as a car camping tent, that would be more stable and able to hold up to whatever was tossed at it. It was a huge disappointment, many features on this tent are a flop. The weather stripping was not complete and not high quality. The geometry of the tent would not allow for a taut pitch. The fly at the best possible pitching made contact with the tent in four places. The last thing is that a buckle on the fly broke very early on in its short lived time with me. I quickly returned this tent because of the poor design of this tent and cheep construction. For context I am a long lover of MSR tents I own both a Hubba and Hubba Hubba. Both are the best tents that I have and have served me well. All in all I am extremely disappointed in MSR for trying to pass off this tent as a good product when it clearly is not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still standing! This tent is awesome, especially for its price. It withstood downpours and winds in Lofoten, below freezing nights in Abisko immediately afterwards (without being properly dried out) and all this time it sheltered two humans with all gear and two Alaskan Malamutes. They scratched the floor and walls during the sleep or when wanting to get out of it, but the tent survived! The only issue with it was that after 48h of strong non-stop rain the inner tent was dry, but water started soaking through various loops and joints of the fly. I'm not sure any tent would survive this, anyway - it's a place of risk and possibility for future upgrades. And the only real disappointment is that there is NO OPTION TO GET THE GEAR SHED, as for Elixir 3 or 2 tents. Hiking and camping with two dogs, especially when it's raining, really limits the options of moving in and out and around for both the dogs and us. MSR, please make it available for Elixir 4 as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous tent, perfect for backpacking as a family Had one for a year now, both car camping and backpacking in the UK and USA (Including Bright Angel trail in July '16). Bought because we needed a single tent for 2 adults and two kids for extended trips. There are not many tents that fit that bill and are light enough to carry. Its roomy, bright and we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design and durability! Easy to set up. Durable material. Roomy with ample vestibules. Footprint included. Annex available. It couldn't get any better for a family tent that can handle anything. Nice work on the design and production. This tent is the bomb! -A.J.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super spacious, sturdy, waterproof Just picked up the Elixir 4 as an add-on to my existing 2 person backpacking tent. Been having some issues with two small tents not quite fitting on tent pads, or restrictions to one tent per pad in protected areas in Banff National Park area. Decided to bite the bullet and get a 4p tent but didn't want to upgrade to the Papa Hubba. This tent has tonnes of room and the gear loft and overhead pockets hold a lot of items. Just spent a day/night in a high elev rain storm that was pretty abusive to the tent and had no problems. Easy set up and lower height than some others, keeps it nice and warm. **Footprint included! Did have a small problem with rigging the guylines and had a little bit of contact from the fly to the tent material which did not cause any leaks but I imagine could.
