Whats the new MSR FlyLite tent in a nutshell? Its a full-size, full-protection, single-wall tent for two that offers you the comfort of a double-wall tent with the weight of a tarpall for the easy-packing weight of 1 lb. Who did you have in mind when you designed this tent? The FlyLite is designed for the fairly serious backpacker who wants lightweight gear, thinks a traditional double-wall tent is too heavy for the job, and prefers to use trekking poles as tent poles to reduce some weight. In fact, the FlyLite can be adapted for different situations. You can take advantage of trees as support structures if you want to leave your poles at home or take them with you on a day hike. Or, if youre a canoeist, you can even use paddles in place of the trekking poles. How did you make the FlyLite so lightweight? We took advantage of material technology. This is the first time we are using a superlight 10-denier fabric on an MSR tent. Its a relatively new fabric on the market and one that didnt exist a few years ago. The fabric and the color are light enough to allow natural light through, creating a pleasant interior. In addition to reducing weight, are there any other tent problems that the FlyLites design solves? As a single-wall tent, the FlyLite overcomes one of the traditional challenges facing these kinds of tents: their tendency to generate a lot of condensation. To address this problem, we designed the FlyLite with a lot of interior volume to increase the airflow, which helps reduce condensation, and we added plenty of mesh and venting. The high-low venting includes full vents on both side walls, a large rear panel vent, and a high vent right above the door thats protected from driving rain. Theres also an awning that allows you to keep the door open and the tent dry when its raining. What other special features went into this tent? In addition to increasing volume, reducing condensation and utilizing lighter weight fabrics, we paid attention to all the important details. You see, the challenge is not to just make a lightweight tent (lots of companies can do that) but to make a lightweight tent thats also durablethats the real test. As we always do, we did a lot of testing of this tent to find out where we needed to reinforce it for strength, and where we didnt in order to keep it light. Thats why you see things like peak patches and reinforced tent floor corners on the FlyLiteanywhere theres a high stress point. MSR has been engineering tents for decadeshow did you come up with the FlyLite design? We do pull from our many years of institutional knowledge, but were always innovating. The FlyLite is a third-generation design that began with our Missing Link tent over 10 years ago. The Missing Link evolved into the Fast Stash, and the Fast Stash evolved into the FlyLite. Not only is the FlyLite a whole lot lighter and more spacious than the Fast Stash, its orientation is completely different. One of the challenges of the Fast Stash was that it required one occupant to sleep behind the other, away from the door. With the FlyLite, each occupant has their head at the door, so you never have to climb over someone to get in and out of the tent. The FlyLite tents first and second generations: the Missing Link (left), introduced in 2004 and the Fast Stash (right), introduced in 2011. Are there any cool features on the FlyLite that might not be obvious at first? Whats really cool is that few of design elements work together to give you the experience of feeling like youre outside the tent even at times when youre inside, such as when youre taking shelter from the rain. The tents vertical walls and large entryway allow two people to sit at the front with the door fully open while the awning and waterproof floor offer full protection from the rain. The design lets you enjoy the scenery together from within, no matter the conditions outside. How easy is the FlyLite to set up? While setup is not complicated, we knew this tent design would require a few extra setup steps compared with that of a freestanding tent. And while we personally think a few extra steps are well worth the FlyLites ultralight weight and extra volume and features, we wanted to figure out how to make things easy for the customer. For example, we added a pole pocket up at the peak to hold the top of your trekking pole so it doesnt flail around while youre putting up the tent, and we put aluminum grommets at the bottom to keep the end of the pole in place while youre staking out the guy lines. There are also adjustable stake loops to help keep the tent floor taut. After putting the FlyLite up once or twice, you get pretty fluent in the setup. The pole pocket holds the top of the trekking pole in place, making setup easier. Where would you take this tent? Whats your ideal scenario? My ideal scenario is a 3-5 day backpacking trip where Id be at camp for a couple of nights at a time at a beautiful location by a lake or in a mountain meadow. The FlyLite is the perfect tent for that setting: its the right weight for a multi-day backcountry trip, spacious enough to stay in for a few days at a time without feeling claustrophobic (as its accessible design lets you make the most of the views), and easy enough to pack up and pitch again at the next scenic spot that calls to you. Sounds pretty great, doesnt it? The MSR FlyLite Tent received a Best New Gear award from The Gear Institute.
