MSR Zoic 2 Tent
Toby Archer enjoys the living space on offer from this summer-oriented backpacking tent, but he's not sure it's the best choice for the UK's full-on wet weather.
MSR introduce the lightweight and spacious 3-season Zoic™ Tent Series, designed for backpackers and adventurers looking to combine packability with comfort this summer.
"Simply put, new backpackers want more comfort in their lightweight tent," says Terry Breaux, tents and shelter category manager at MSR. "That's why we gave the Zoic a roomy floor plan that accommodates popular 65cm mattresses, plus extra head and shoulder room."

The 3-season models' full micromesh canopy keeps backpackers cool and dry on warm nights, and comes with MSR's precision engineering and durability to create a lightweight backpacking tent at a great value.
Comfort is a priority with the Zoic Tent Series. That's why they feature a spacious floor plan and steep walls, offering a roomy interior with generous head and shoulder space. Combined with this abundance of sleeping space, built-in gear lofts deliver plenty of storage capacity for keeping essential equipment organized.
The Zoic's freestanding system uses a hubbed pole for fast and easy setup, and also features MSR's Xtreme Shield™ System. The Xtreme Shield system utilizes an ultra-durable waterproof coating that lasts up to 3x longer than standard coatings, as well as precision, watertight seams.
The Zoic 1, 2 & 3-person tent is available in stores now.
