The Freelite 3 is the lightest freestanding, full featured 3-person backpacking tent from MSR. Designed for three backpackers, the freestanding Freelite 3 weighs a mere 2 pounds, 15 ounces.
The unique pole configuration of the Freelite 3 provides 39.5 square feet of interior space and a full 38 inches of interior height for maximum livability. Strong and supportive, the 7000 series aluminum poles are extremely lightweight. MSR stakes are included to aid in securing the freestanding Freelite 3. A vestibule offers an additional 17.5 square feet of protected storage space.
Extensive mesh construction keeps weight to a minimum while maximizing ventilation. The Freelite 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 Freelite 3 employs taped seams on the bathtub style floor and Durashield 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 Freelite 3 rainfly can be used alone or in tandem with an optional footprint (sold separately), making the Freelite 3 a feather-light freestanding minimalist shelter.
Guy lines, aluminum cord adjusters and a compression stuff sack with pull handle are included.
- Comfortably fits three-or two with room for extra gear
- Two large doors for easy access
- Micromesh canopy for maximum ventilation and moisture control
