Worth its weight on your back

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

Used this on several multi-day trips now and it's fantastic. Especially if you're somewhere rainy, like crossing Iceland. It keeps everything organized, and close, and is well thought-out. Makes a light backpacking camp and a small tent feel like a basecamp.

Awesome Basecamp Attachment

I've used it several times

This Gear shed attachment for the Elixir is awesome! I was little worried before purchase after reading other reviews about how easy it would be to attach. After a few nights backpacking and camping with the gear shed, I’m stoked on it! First time setting it up was semi tricky, but 2nd and 3rd time I set it up super smooth and taught. It saw some light rain and snow with medium 20 mph winds the other weekend and preformed great! I had 3 other peeps, dog and my gear hanging out cooking and chilling all evening in my 2 man tent with the attachment on while winds roared and rain drizzled outside, we hung out all warm and comfy out of the elements. I am looking forward to having this as a basecamp for the group when weather is less than ideal but you still want to hang out and eat. I was super impressed when the Gear shed is all sealed up how little breeze gets under the edges. It’s great to listen to the winds roar outside and feel very little air movement in the tent on cold winter nights. Then in the morning when the sun hits the tent and warms up you can open the vestibule on one side of the Elixir and the Gear Shed on the other side and get a great breeze through the tent as the openings face opposite directions and force air flow though tent to wick away any condensation that had built up through the night. Very well engineered shelter attachment that was worth the pickup.


Would this fit on a 2011 Hubba Hubba (not NX)? I've been looking for a matching green gear shed but striking out...
