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.

The Carbon Reflex 1 tent is the lightest, double-wall solo tent we've ever made, crossing the barrier from ultralight tohyperlight. Utilizing the latest fabrics and cutting edge carbon fiber poles, we've engineered a tent that's ideal for any ultralight, 3-season adventure you're ready to take on-from bike touring through Central America to lightweight weekends. The best thing about the Carbon Reflex series tents, however, is what we didn't take out-livability. Packing over 7 ft. (2.2 m) of length, plenty of room to sit up in and a roomy vestibule, we're continuing to prove our philosophy that traveling ultralight should increase your comfort-not compromise it. Hyperlight: Comparable to the Hubba(TM) tent in volume, the carbon fiber poles and efficient design make the Carbon Reflex 1 nearly a pound lighter. Advanced Poles: MSR(R) Custom Carbon 6.3 poles weigh up to 30% less than aluminum with a significant increase in strength. Versatile: Straight-forward design sets-up fast and pitches with just fly and footprint for added versatility. Additional Features: Ultralight, non-freestanding design, Taped, DuraShield(TM)-coated fly and bathtub floor, (4) internal mesh storage pockets, large front door and vestibule.
