Summary

This is a very impressive tent from MSR. It is a bit expensive so I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5, but wow, this is a great tent. If you go backpacking more than twice a year, I would say it's worth the price. It is a very light tent, yet pretty sturdy... all thanks to the carbon fiber poles. Check out my video review to see the tent in action and learn more about the Carbon Reflex 1.
