Mattwrote a review of MSR Carbon Reflex 1 Tent: 1-Person 3-Season on May 23, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
So I just got back from my first backpacking trip with this tent. I was initially impressed with how light it is, and how small it packs down. However those initial impressions were dampened when I was living in it. The rain fly in my opinion is a terrible design... please just stick with zippers! The tent is accessed via two little strips of velcro, which is a pain to open and close from the inside.
I'll take the extra 2 oz for a decent zipper. Also If the tent is pitched tight there are big gaps in the opening and rain/wind would have no issue flooding in.
I'll be returning this and sticking with zippers thanks.
