If you’re a value-chasing hiker that will only settle for the highest quality the MSR Elixir 3 Hiking Tent is the lightweight tent for you. And it’s roomy enough for three, or two and stacks of gear.
The included footprint enables set up with or without the fly, or as an ultralight single skin shelter for fast and light adventures. Two large StayDry™ entrances and vestibules with built in rain gutters team up with a roomy interior that offers true space for two people.
A tent inner comprising of 40D ripstop nylon and 20D nylon micromesh not only provides exceptional ventilation but enables stargazing when the fly is removed on warm nights through a star shaped mesh ceiling.
Easily pitched with colour coded poles, clips and webbing, the Elixir 3 Hiking Tent offers versatility and space for any adventure in just about any climate.
Use it for motorcycle camping, packs reasonably small (needs to be put into a dry bag if you strap it to your bike) and is big enough to put all my gear in and an extra person. Can be put up solo without drama, and the extra ground sheet keeps it clean. Have not tried to set up in the rain yet, but this would be a similar issue with most of the tents out there in that the fly goes on last. Great quality materials and no issues with condensation so far. Nice touches are gutters round the zips on the fly, diverts water away from the entry, and the ample storage nets on the inside. Good stuff!
This is a perfect tent for someone looking an extremely versatile tent, it's super light weight, packs fairly small, is roomy enough for two people (queen mattress) and some small luggage and is fairly quick and easy to set up.
There are a few accessories you may like to buy, like the clip in gear loft (it would be super easy to make one too if you were crafty), the ties (not included, but I don't know if you'd need them) and perhaps some pegs for sand if you're camping at the beach
Would you say that the hubba hubba is an upgrade to this and why?
I'm not sure I would class it as an upgrade, rather they're simply two different styles of tent. The Hubba range is the top of the MSR Hiking Tent Range, whereas the Elixir is placed in the middle of the range.
The major differences between the two are capacity as the Elixir 3 can fit 3 people whereas the Hubba Hubba can only fit 2. As a result, there is a significant weight difference where the Hubba Hubba is almost 1.5kg lighter.
This weight difference is what makes the Hubba range more appealing overall as the materials used are still as durable and reflective of the high MSR quality, but come with significantly less weight.
