MSR Free Lite 2

This is billed as a two person tent, but they would have to be pretty small people.  Its more of a roomy 1 person tent. I'm 5'9" and its roomy for me.  We used this with two persons in the Sierra, and as a solo tent in the White Clouds, and its better as a one person tent.  It weighed for me 2 lbs 13 oz, which is not bad for a freestanding tent for 2 people.  Besides the poles, it uses 6 small stakes. The cost is $300-$350 depending on where you get it. 

It has a head end, and a foot end. The head end has more head space and a more vertical wall, so the mesh is not in your face all night. The one gear bag is at the head end, and holds small items like a light, cell phone, ear phones, etc. As you can see in the picture, it holds two full sized sleeping pads. and it would be fine for two average sized people, but there might be a little bumping as you turned from side to side. 


There are entry doors on each side, and vestibules at each side, which is very nice. The hardware where the poles fit, and the tie offs for the fly are nicely machined aluminum pieces and feel like they would be trouble free and would never break. I lost my balance and fell fully onto the set up tent one time. I thought the poles would be bent or something ripped, but when I got off it the tent sprang back into shape unharmed. Some people prefer a free standing tent and this is one of the lightest 2 person tents I have seen. Its not quite free stand, but almost.
