User Review: MSR Fusion 2
Design: three pole, freestanding
Ease of Setup: normal
Weight: 8 lbs
Price Paid: $230
I have only used this tent on one trip in the mountains but I have a few things to say about it. The Fusion 2 is an okay tent; MSR uses high quality materials paired with a useable design. The fusion is very large inside with plenty of headroom. Also, it packs up easier than any tent I've ever used. But, it does seem to have some drawbacks.
One, the weight is a little high, but to be expected with heavier duty materials. Secondly, the ventilation is not great. When my girlfriend and I used it, the tent started to drip on us toward morning. The humidity was close 100 percent; I guess I was expecting better.
Overall, I probably would not buy this tent again for a few reasons. I don't need a four season tent, I only hike in the summer anyway. Also, it is a little on the heavy side. Finally, I just paid too much for a tent I don't use enough (my own fault).
