Shave a few extra lbs from your pack when you bring the MSR Flylite 2-Person Tent on your next backpacking trip. With a trail weight of just 1lb 9oz, the Flylite is one of the lightest two person shelters on the market today, making it an excellent choice for ultralight backpackers and gram-counting thru-hikers alike.
Saving weight with a single-wall design, the fly is composed of a 10D ripstop nylon, which is treated with MSR's Durashield PU coating for increased protection from unruly mountain weather. Fully taped seams and reinforced stress points prevent water from working through and ensure the tent holds up when the winds pick up. Mesh side windows keep the inside of the tent well ventilated, while a covered entryway gives you some space to get gear ready out of the rain. Setup requires two trekking poles, while the included two guy cords and the lightweight aluminum pole take care of the rest.

So far so good
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Originally I picked this up for my solo thru hikes but decided to try it out for lightweight overnight mountaineering trips.
Just a few things I've learned.
Its light and compact. a 115mm pole won't hold it up. Guy line.. and more line..
It vents great with all the mesh and yet didn't get a bad cross breeze.
Its very roomy!
Set it up a few times before heading out and just be sure to be protected from the wind.
I realize there is quite a bit of mesh on this tent but does the door have any mesh? I couldn't tell from the online set up video.
I strongly believe there is a mesh vent above the door called "hi-low vent." Most tents have that. It would not make sense not to have one.
