Seattle, U.S.A. - Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, is proud to announce that the company's new MSR Carbon Reflex 2 tent has been honored by National Geographic Adventure magazine with a Best of Adventure gear award. One of 29 products awarded, the MSR Carbon Reflex 2 tent was selected for its impressive interior volume, durability and extremely light weight.

The Best of Adventure gear winners are nominated and selected by editors with the guidance of a Retail Advisory Board composed of 34 of the leading U.S. outdoor retailers. Members of the Retail Advisory Board evaluate products on their degree of innovation and ability to deliver the product benefits consumers are excited about.

The MSR Carbon Reflex 2 tent challenges the convention that ultralight shelters require compromise. Boasting full-featured, three-season livability for two at just-under three pounds, the Carbon Reflex 2 tent is the lightest two-person double-wall tent ever released under the MSR brand. The roomy, hyper-light tent combines carbon fiber poles, efficient design and an easy two-pole set up to match the impressive interior volume of the renowned MSR Hubba Hubbaâ„¢ tent at a fraction of the weight. Two vestibules and a large Stay-Dryâ„¢ entrance provide ample gear storage, while the ultralight fly offers solid protection and mesh tent body provides excellent ventilation. Alternately, it can be set up with just the fly and footprint for the ultimate compact, lightweight shelter.

The MSR Carbon Reflex 2 tent will be available in stores in January of 2009 at a retail price of $499.95 USD, along with the one-person Carbon Reflex 1 at $449.95.
