Going From Ultralight to Hyperlight Backpacking Tents

The Carbon Reflex 2 is the lightest, double-wall 2-person tent MSR has made, crossing the barrier from ultralight to hyperlight.





The Carbon Reflex 2 is the lightest, double-wall 2-person tent MSR has made, crossing the barrier from ultralight to hyperlight. Utilizing the latest fabrics and cutting edge carbon fiber poles, we’ve shaved nearly a pound from the legendary Hubba Hubba making this the new standard in ultralight performance. The best thing about the Carbon series tents however is what we didn’t take out—livability. Packing 7 ft. (2.2 m) of length, plenty of room to sit up in and a roomy vestibule, we’re continuing to prove our philosophy that traveling ultralight should increase your comfort—not compromise it.

* Hyperlight: Comparable to the Hubba Hubba™ in volume, the carbon fiber poles and efficient design make the Carbon Reflex 2 nearly a pound lighter.
* Fast Setup: Efficient two-pole design is strong and simple to use.
* Livable: Unique geometry provides maximum interior space, front vestibule and zippered rear window access to rear vestibule.
* Versatile: Can be set up as a double-wall tent or with just the fly and footprint for a compact, flyweight shelter at just .90kg (2 lbs.)
