The MSR Freelite 2 is one of the lightest, semi-detached tents that you can use perfectly for 3 seasons (and of course in Dutch winters). With two vestibules, 2 entrances and space for 2 25″ wide tents (e.g. 2x Thermarest we were able to test the new version. A lot lighter, almost 225 grams and just a little higher so that you can sit upright in it with a seat height of 1 meter. The micromesh inner tent provides excellent ventilation and has a waterproof bathtub-like floor to protect against the elements. Two openings on both sides prevent you from having to crawl over your tent buddy in the middle of the night. The zippers open easily and can even be operated with one hand. They also close at one point so that you always know where to put the zipper open, even in the dark. What we find super useful are the storage bags with handy cable openings so that you can easily charge your phone (or something else). A handy “top compartment” at the top of the tent is perfect for your headlamp and other small things like your glasses.

Let’s look at the rest: The MSR Freelite 2 is equipped with super strong DAC NFL tent poles. The flysheet is made from a DuraShield™ waterproof coating and taped seams keep the weather where it belongs – outside. The outer tent is separately assembled (so you can also set up the tent with the inner tent alone) and is designed to save a lot of weight. There is a vestibule on both sides for storing your shoes and other luggage. Another nice feature: the entrances have StayDry™ rain gutters so that no water drips in.

For the bikepackers among us, the poles of the MSR Freelite 2 are approximately 45cm long and we prefer to store them under the top frame tube or on the horizontal tube with a pair of voile straps. You can of course also mount this nicely in a harness for your handlebars. You can set up the tent easily and quickly and pack it easily and compactly.
