In today's video we are willing to share with you our new purchase of the new tent – MSR Elixir 2. We have been searching for quite a while for a good quality budget self-standing tent. Because one of the main downsides of our previous tent was its height and we were lacking space in it badly. So after several months of an active research of plenty of different tents (thanks for all your suggestions you left in the comments by the way) it seems that we found one that would suit our needs for now. In this video we are going to share our first impressions of this tent, see what’s in the kit, look at the main characteristics of it, dimensions and size, set up and wrap up process. We do plan to make a full review of this tent after one season of hiking. Now we just feel so excited about our new tent and so decided to make this quick video and to share it with you. Let's get into it! Hope you find it useful in some way.

Disclaimer: we don't have any affiliation with the brands and all items mentioned in the video were purchased by our own money.

Where to buy it:

You can purchase the tent on plenty of different camping and hiking gear online stores and depending on your country, they may differ. We bought our tent at this particular store:


Also you can find it here




This tent comes in dark green and grey colors and it has 1 or 2 person options.

We are a couple who once fell in love with mountains and couldn't get back. So we decided to follow our heart and move from a big city to a small village to be able to do what we love and to create this content. Our goal is to promote the healthy lifestyle, to motivate people to travel more and care for nature around. We are passionate walkers who love hiking, trekking and camping. We offer the detailed information of our hikes and routes, including the map and all the directions, so that you can repeat it if you'd like to.

We choose walking over driving and other types of transportation whenever we can because we learnt that this way we see so much more and can explore and feel the place better. Walking is an excellent activity that has so many benefits to your health and requires no special equipment or practice, so we encourage you to get the most out of it and get out walking.

We speak English, Spanish, French and Russian, so don't hesitate to address to us in your native language.

Very helpful review, just ordered this tent for myself :)

really good review guys. I have owned this tent for 3 years now and i have found it best to keep the poles and pegs separate, and keep the body of the tent in a stuff sack, that way i can compact it to about the size of a football.

Great demo, very thorough :)
How's it holding up after a year or so, and have you had a chance to test it in any strong wind? I'm about to purchase one but I'm not sure how it'll hold up to the strong coastal gusts where I live, I pitch in some pretty exposed locations and the last thing I want is a broken pole in the night

We recently invested in this tent and think its absolutely fantastic! I agree with you guys that the sack is a little big, and you can definitely get it smaller. But aside from that we're loving it!

Really enjoyed the review, thanks! I actually own the Quechua Ultralight 2 person tent as well and also consider switching to the MSR Elixir 2. I noticed you're still using the Quechua tent in the videos you recently posted, have you decided to return the MSR Elixir?

Hi greetings from Canada! Great review, I have the same tent! (In its big sack) I was wondering if you have any advice on packing it so that it doesn’t take up like half the space in a 60L pack. Compression sack perhaps?

Hi! Great review! I have also the exactly tha same tent, and i have to say i am more than happy! About the sack i kept the original sack but i bought two velcro straps so i roll the tent tight and i keep it in that shape with the straps, the bag is still loose but it not bother me because the tent inside is compressed. Also the straps are very cheap in compare with an new sack. Also i replaced the original stakes with Y-Shape because the originals are very thin and they can bend very easy if the ground is not ideal. Have you used the tent after the review?

After your wonderful video decided to order this tent :) Thanks for the clear descriptions and honest disadvantages. Just as you I was in the search of a backpacking tent that would last and at the same time wouldn't break the bank. Did you guys find a fitting compression sack / pack sack? As I will be in the need to make the volume as small as possible as I would do some backpacking on my own and needs to fit into a 75L backpack, maybe you have some good suggestions

Awesome review guys! It makes so much sense why you chose this. I have a 2.4kg tent as well, very similar construct and dimensions (Robens Boulder 2). I was a bit worried about the 2.4kg at first, but the interior space, double entrances and vestabules definitely make up for it. its very comfortable for 2ppl. to me this is very important since you spend a lot of time in the tent as well. it seems like a really good fit for you guys. I agree with the other comment. try to pack it individually, or at least have the poles and pegs on the side of the bag. it definitely reduces the footprint inside your bag. I also got a huuuge bag for my tent. (I could basically fit both the tent, sleeping bag and mattress into it 😅. currently I only use two lightweight straps to compress the tent. And if I cant air it out or it is raining, I use very slim and light plastic bags for clothes, sleeping bag etc. (don't want the moisture to carry across) and double acts as garage bags, water proofing etc. my packning become more and more ghetto the more I hike. 🤣 these plastics bags are so light weight and good for multiple purpose. they take up no space as well.

Fold the inner and Fly flat and pack separately. Top of your Backpack....poles outside in your side pocket.
Lots of tent choices on Aliexpress. Nature hike, Asta, Flames Creek.
Nothing wrong with the strength of the Hubba Hubba. Have used up near glaciers in Peru at 5, 000mts.
Nice trip reports.
