User Review: MSR Missing Link
Design: rain free season
Ease of Setup: simple with trek poles
I was impressed with this tent for the first year and a couple of uses as a backup against full huts. Light, dry, roomy. But then the walls melted and MSR don't respond.
We took it out for a three week walk through central Australia and all the interior surfaces were sticky, like a post-it note. Look closely at the material with a bright light, like a full moon, and you could see thousands of pinholes where, I assume, the waterproofing has detached from the nylon. The tent looks as waterproof as indian cotton but at least it didn't rain on us in the centre. Another plus was carrymats not sliding around!
If anyone has any suggestions for fixing it, we'd appreciate some comments, but I won't be buying another MSR tent for a while.
