When it comes to a tent, you can always cut-down on weight. MSR’s own Carbon Reflex 2 Ultralight two-man tent weighs a paltry 840g, but there’s always a trade-off to be made. After all, if you’re going to enjoy your trip, you need a little room to move once you’re inside, and somewhere to store your kit. Cue the MSR Elixir 2, a backpacking tent TravGear was proud to call home for over a week. Used for an entire week in the rainy Brecon Beacons in Wales, the Elixir 2 didn’t just stay dry.
