Ultralight weight is critical for thru-hikers and long distance backpackers, so is having a tent with excellent ventilation and enough livable space to be comfortable for weeks or even months on the trail. The MSR Thu-Hiker Mesh House 2 delivers these essentials while also offering shelter and wing pairing options for varying levels of protection.
The micromesh canopy on the Thru-Hiker Mesh House 2 offers maximum ventilation and moisture control with bug-free protection. All of the Thru-Hiker Mesh House’s floor seams are taped and is constructed of 20D nylon ripstop with Durashield for durable protection, as well. Stress points are reinforced to prevent tear-outs.
The Thu-Hiker Mesh House 2offers ample room for two backpackers and, at just 14 oz., is lightweight enough to serve as an exceptionally roomy solo shelter.
Match your level of protection by matching the Thru Hiker Mesh House 2 with the Thru-Hiker 70 or 100 Wing. The Mesh House 2 will fit under either Wing to make a complete shelter system.
Because the Thru-Hiker Mesh House is not freestanding, it does require a pair of standard trekking poles (sold separately) for setup.

Real Customer Reviews
- Light & Fast
Likes: The MSR Meshouse 2 is a No Frills, No Nonsense Shelter. Its weight and pack size are so minuscule, however, its performance and quality of construction are huge. The interior is space is just enough for two adults, so You must be creative with the use of the floor space. I have not had the chance to test water resistance of the floor and back wall, but I believe it will be up to the task when needed. I would definitely recommend getting the footprint to increase the useful life of the floor, even though it adds a few more ounces. Good job MSR with this product, and Thumbs up Backcountry Edge for Your Great Customer Service.
Dislikes: None as of yet.
