Your search for a respectably light tent that sleeps four is over, now that MSR's Elixir Four-Person, Three-Season Tent is on the scene. Light enough to take on your family backpacking trips and roomy enough to sleep everyone comfortably when you're car camping, the Elixir combines a trail weight of under eight pounds and with a generous living space, so you don't have to feel too cramped when it's time to call it a night. MSR gave the Elixir two large StayDry doors with vestibules, so everyone can store gear and not have to worry about it getting wet when a rain storm rolls through during the night. The fly and floor are made with tough polyester fabric that's been treated with a highly water-resistant coating to repel water from rain and snow, and MSR threw in a footprint to protect the tent's floor from pointy sticks and rocks--although it still recommends clearing those out of the way before you sleep, so you don't have to spend the night with a rock jabbing into your spine.
