The Carbon Reflex 3 is the lightest non-freestanding, full featured backpacking tent from MSR. Designed for solo backpackers, the Carbon Reflex 3 weighs a mere 2 pounds, 4 ounces.
The unique pole configuration of the Carbon Reflex 3 provides 38.5 square feet of interior space and a full 36 inches of interior height for maximum livability. Strong and supportive, the 2 Easton Carbon fiber 6.3 poles are extremely lightweight. MSR stakes are included to aid in securing the non-freestanding Carbon Reflex 3. A vestibule offers an additional 14 square feet of protected storage space.
Extensive mesh construction keeps weight to a minimum while maximizing ventilation. The Carbon Reflex 3 is extremely breathable, which increases livability and combats the build-up of condensation on the interior of the tent. In warm, clear weather, you can tie back the exterior door to allow even greater airflow. MSR's StayDry design prevents roof run-off from dripping into the interior of the tent when the fly is open.
The Carbon Reflex 3 employs taped seams on the bathtub style floor and PU coating on the rainfly to prevent leaks. The stress points are reinforced to prevent tear-outs, and the guy lines are reflective to help you find your way back to your tent in the dark.
If you prefer to travel even lighter, the Carbon Reflex 3 rainfly can be used alone or in tandem with an optional footprint (sold separately), making the Carbon Reflex 3 a feather-light freestanding minimalist shelter.
Guy lines, aluminum cord adjusters and a stuff sack are included.
- Zipper-free vestibule saves weight and keeps gear dry
