MSR Elbow Room 2P
Just got back from a British summer week of car-camping.
Design: Three-season freestanding bow frame
Ease of Setup: Incredibly easy to setup - 5 mins for 1 person
Weight: 7lb 2oz/3.24Kg packed
Price Paid: £179
Just got back from a British summer week of car-camping. Not especially challenging weatherwise but it was hot with occasional heavy showers. Ventilation was excellent and no sign of leaks. (The fly is rated 1500mm HH)
Especially impressed with the design and build quality. Made in Taiwan - but who cares! Plenty of space inside for two (88" x 52"). Door at each end and room in vestibules for all our gear.
And it looks cool!
Here's what other sites are saying:
Combine the comfort and convenience of your family tent with the performance you need to withstand high-mountain storms with the Elbow Room 2 tent from MSR. Enhance your backwoods comfort with 40 sq ft of room with Bow Frame geometry and an additional 15 sq ft of vestibule space, but don't confuse this tent for a weekend warrior's car-camper, durable, waterproof construction withstands damp weather and a weight of 7 pounds is viable for the backcountry camper.
- Mountain Gear
MSR has transformed familiar tent geometry with the new Bow Frame to make the Elbow Room series the most livable freestanding shelters available. The Elbow Room 2 tent is a great cross-over tent for campers who enjoy backpacking and car camping. Excellent ventilation, gear storage, and storm protection make this the one tent to suit two adventure seekers. Both feature dual entrances, vestibules, excellent ventilation and ample room to gear storage and living.
- Rocky Mountain Trail
The MSR Mo Room 2 redefines the amount of livability (aka - space and comfort) to be had in a trail-friendly tent. Bow Frame geometry is combined with a time-tested hoop tent design to create steep sidewalls and vast interior spaces. A pole-supported front vestibule and a traditional rear one save the cavernous interior living spaces for living and let you enjoy the view...even in nasty weather.
The MSR Elbowroom 2-Person Tent gives two campers the ideal balance between a sturdy basecamp tent and a weatherproof backpacking tent. A unique pole configuration and a roomy interior provide plenty of living space for car camping while remaining light enough to strap to your pack.
