MSR Camp & Hike Thru-hiker House 2 05845. 41 kg (14 oz) this shelter meets that requirement and others: excellent ventilation good protection and enough livable space for two to be comfortable for weeks or months on the trail. It's also an extremely packable and adaptable shelter. Use the Mesh House on its own for bug-free protection-a necessity in the High Sierras-or pair it with the Thru-Hiker 70 (sold separately) for added wind and rain coverage. Whatever the trail-AT PCT CDT or TBD-this shelter system lets you configure the right combination of weight and protection that's right for your trip and any section along the way.
The MSR Thru Hiker Mesh House 2 Footprint is a footprint specifically for the Thru Hiker Mesh House 2 Tent. If you don't have that tent, then you should probably get a different footprint. Anyway, lay this down, put your tent on top and it's protected from the rigors of nature. You know, rocks, pine cones, regular old dirt. Features of the MSR Thru Hiker Mesh House 2 Footprint Footprints extend the life of your tent by protecting them from dirt, rocks, and water Allows you to pitch a lightweight shelter using only a footprint, tent fly, poles, and stakes Designed to be used with the MSR Thru Hiker Mesh House 2 Tent
You got the Thru-Hiker Mesh House Tent for minimalist, ultralight endeavors, so the idea of adding more weight to your backpacking quiver seems contradictory, but given the fact that MSR's Thru-Hiker Mesh House Footprint protects your ultralight home from rocky, muddy grounds, you have to admit that the extra couple of grams is worth it.
