MSR Elixer 2 v2,

A general overview from last year’s model and the tent in general, also a slight comparison to the MSR hubba hubba NX

💬 Comments

I have this tent and love it. I like you struggle with the corner hitch points every time I use it. Don’t get me wrong, it works and I have never had a problem with it coming loose but trying to get the three metal loops to sit firm in the notch at the end of the pole never feels that intuitive.

If you find a technique that works for you le me know.

I love my Elixir 2. Had it for just over a year now and it's been great. New subscriber 👍

Hello! Did you ever figure out how to clip the rain fly? Having the same question here...

Hey. Have you figured out how the fly sheet attaches on yet? Is it supposed to be pegged or are you suppose to put the pole through the grommets?

is it just me or the poles and the rainfly doesn't line up that well? I remember that it let in some water in heavy rain with previous version if I didn't line them up perfectly, not sure if it's going to be a problem with this one, haven't camped with it in the rain yet.
And I'm quite disappointed that they replaced the clips with metal hoops, clips were easier and quicker.

Interesting video and one of the few, if not only, one of the v2. Same thoughts here about the corner fly pitches and how to line up the ridge poles with the seams on the fly. Also, any idea which way up the footprint goes? The videos say MSR logo up but the v2 doesnt have a logo! I’m presuming it’s seams down? Cheers Gary hope you got into those mountains🙂

Fatal flaw in this video. When the poles are set up, Grey should run under red at one end and over red on other end. Or vice versa. Setting poles as in this video where one pole travels under the other at both ends makes the other pole shorter. You will not be able to line outer fly seams with poles putting undue stress on outer fly resulting in shorter life span/damage and eneven pitch!! 😇
