Working from the successful design of its big brother, the MSR Freelite 2 tent is pared down and trimmed up to give a staggeringly low weight of just 1.33kg packed and updated for 2018 (latest version) with Easton® Syclone™ Poles.
EMS Special Offer: MSR Freelite 2 Combo Deal Includes MSR Universal Footprint, Two Tubes of Seam Grip and Free 24hr Shipping*.
At first glance you might recognise some familiar MSR features in the Freelite 2 tent, but its completely new and its MSR's lightest free standing two person tent.
The sleeping floor plan is the same as other MSR two person tents, but the head height is nine cm less and vestibules have been reduced in size. Liveability has been maintained with the familiar cross roof bar design which holds the walls of the tent out so you don't feel like you are sat in a pyramid. Most importantly, the two door/two vestibule design remains which allows easy access for both people, plenty of gear storage, good ventilation options and you both get a fantastic view of the stars.
EMS Special Offer - MSR Freelite 2 Combo Deal Includes MSR Universal Footprint, Two Tubes of Seam Grip and Free 24hr Shipping*.
*Shipped FREE via 24 hour tracked courier service for next working day delivery. (UK mainland only - may take longer for remote locations).
Please note that the new range of Freelite tents are supplied with the new ‘Extreme Shield ‘ fly sheets. The Extreme Shield fly sheets are not supplied with the seams already taped, so for countries where there’s likely to be heavy rain, or light rain for extended periods, the Extreme Shield will need to have the seams sealed to prevent water ingress through the stitches of the seams.
EMS Exclusive Offer - Free Tubes of SeamGrip supplied with every Freelite 2 tent! We will ship two 28 gram tubes of SeamGrip with Brush Applicator worth £18.00, Free with every Freelite Tent so you can seal the seams at home.
