The ultralight, super liveable semi-freestanding tent for solo backpackers, the MSR FreeLite 1-Person Ultralight Backpacking Tent.

An ultralight, semi-freestanding FreeLite tent from MSR allows you to lighten your base weight without needing to sacrifice space or features and now you can make the most of those three-season adventures.

Inside the Tent: A true rectangular floor (no foot taper like most other tents) and 1 metre (39 in.) of headroom (that is 7.6 cm more than before). 170 grams (6 oz.) lighter than the previous 1-person FreeLite too.

A bathtub-style floor with it's waterproof properties protects from the elements, whilst the micromesh tent body helps to provide you with excellent ventilation.

The no-curve tent door features new zippers designed to be more durable and easy to use with one hand. They also zip closed to a single point so you always know where to open the door, even in the dark.

Tech-friendly pockets now featuring cable ports at the corners for headphone and charging cords. Then overhead are the gear loft pockets that make a perfect storage location for headlamps, sunglasses and other quick-access items.

Outside the Tent: A quick and easy to set up, semi-freestanding design. Super strong DAC NFL tent poles, a DuraShield™ waterproof coating and taped seams keep the weather where it belongs—outside.

The cutaway rainfly saves weight and features a large vestibule for storing any gear you don’t want inside. The easy in-and-out vestibule door has a StayDry™ rain gutter to keep water from dripping onto you and your gear.

Verdict: The semi-freestanding solo FreeLite provides the camp comfort you need after putting down the miles at a weight you won’t even notice.
