MSR Flylite 2-Person Trekking Pole Tent


The MSR Flylite 2-Person Trekking Pole Tent is as light as a feather, and as strong as an ox. Ever since I’ve purchased my MSR MiniWorks EX Microfilter it’s exceeded my expectations over and over again. When I saw MSR’s latest ultra lightweight tent, I was pumped to see what it’s all about. The MSR Flylite Trekking Pole Tent is one serious tent that fulfills all the needs for the back country backpacker. For starters, it weights in at a measly 1 lb 9 oz. which is damn light for a full size, full protection, single wall tent that is typical for 2 wall counter parts. Made from superlight 10-denier coated fabric, MSR designed the Flylite with ample interior volume (enough space for you to spread out and not feel like you’re smothered), which in turn increases airflow and thus minimizes condensation, the downfall of many single-wall tents. Always on the go? Pitching this tent is easy and adaptable when utilizing two standard trekking poles, or if you’re desperate, wooden branches will suffice.

Available from Amazon or Backcountry.
