Enjoy the comfortably spacious interior of the Elixir™ 3 Backpacking Tent while taking in the scenery of the backcountry. The unique design optimizes headroom for up to three people, plus the two larger vestibules provide plenty of space to store and keep gear dry, no matter the weather. This tent is suitable for both car camping and backpacking.

  • Privacy – The tent body is constructed with both mesh and solid fabrics to strategically offer ventilation, warmth, and privacy.

This tent is versatile, and includes a footprint that can enable you to pitch fast and pack light with just the footprint and rainfly. Easy pitch design color coded poles, clips and webbing make setting it up a breeze. A height of 3 feet gives you plenty of headroom too!

Ave. Min Weight is 5 pounds / Ave Packed Weight is 6 pounds. 2 doors and 2 vestibules make this tent very easy to exit and enter without disturbing your partner. The 2 vestibules add 24 square ft of gear storage space. The fabric to mesh ratio makes this tent a 4 season option without heavy snow. The footprint is included which most manufacturers charge an additional $50+ for. The travel light option of using only the footprint and rain fly offers a fast and light setup when the weather and bugs permit.
