It is the ideal option for backpackers and car campers alike seeking easy-to-assemble tents at a great value.

 The Elixir™ 4 tent is meticulously detail-oriented: at 135 cubic feet, the highly-durable, easy-to-assemble tent features ample room for four side-by-side mattresses as well as a unified pole geometry that optimizes headroom, color-coded stakeout loops, and clip-webbing for fast and easy setup. Large doors and vestibules provide excellent views, easy access, and lots of storage options. For campers with lots of gear, the optional all-new Elixir™ Gear Shed tacks on 23 cubic feet of additional storage and livability.

The included footprint helps keep your tent clean, dry and protected while the tent’s solid fabric panels and strategically placed vents provide the perfect ratio of ventilation, warmth, and privacy.
