Carbon Reflex™ 1 Ultralight Tent

Carbon Reflex 1


Double-wall solo ultralight backpacking tent – the lightest we've ever made.

The MSR® Carbon Reflex 1 tent is a lightweight, non-freestanding backpacking tent that crosses the barrier from ultralight to hyperlight – it's the lightest, double-wall solo tent we've ever made. Utilizing the latest fabrics and cutting edge carbon fiber poles, we've engineered a tent that's ideal for any 3-season adventure you're ready to take on – from bike touring through Central America to minimalist weekends. The best thing about the Carbon Reflex series tents, however, is what we didn't take out – livability. Packing over 2.2 m (7 ft) of length, plenty of room to sit up in and a roomy vestibule, the Carbon Reflex 1 solo non-freestanding backpacking tent proves our philosophy that traveling ultralight should increase your comfort – not compromise it.
