A comfortable tent built for optimal capacity and durability

Featuring generous headroom and an optimized floor area that sleeps four comfortably, the Elixir 4 V2 tent offers the livability you want for the whole group, whether you're taking your friends backcountry camping or your family on a wilderness canoe trip. Two large staydry doors provide easy access, while new larger vestibules let you store lots of gear. Breathable mesh fabric is balanced with solid canopy fabric to provide more privacy, and storm ready, adjustable guy lines are pre attached on the rainfly to offer extra stability when needed. The easy to assemble, freestanding tent comes with plenty of extras, including an MSR Footprint and built in attic gear lofts.
