MSR Missing Link (current MSR model of this tent is called "Fast Stash")
37 sq. ft. floor space
42" interior height
Single wall
Original retail price: $239.95

This tent was used ONCE and has been stored in a non-smoking, climate controlled area. The tent is perfectly clean, with all parts, and no wear or dirt. MSR tents have set-up instructions on the flap of the included stuff sack.

This is the answer for you if you want an extremely large, full tent that easily fits two tall people with room for gear, all for three pounds. No poles needed - set up with trekking poles or guy lines.

The award-winning 2-person single-wall tent bridges the gap between traditional tents and tarp-style shelters. Spacious interior allows enough room for 2 plus gear, while innovative awning provides an additional 14 sq. ft., covered storage and 180-degree views. Easy to pitch--one person can set it up in less than three minutes using trekking poles or guy cords tied off to an overhead object. Length is 132 inches, tapers to 72 inches under the awning. Excellent ventilation prevents moisture buildup.

Backpacking Light says: "MSR's Missing Link is the tent you want if you need to wait out a long period of rain or heavy bug pressure. By lightweight standards it is palatial. The Missing Link has 20 to 30 percent more area than most two-person ultralight tents and a lot more headroom. There is plenty of room for two tall people and their gear. It is one of the few ultralight tents where both people can comfortably sit up at the same time. In addition, the awning and huge front door provide ventilation and views not found in other ultralight tents - perfect for claustrophobics. If the rain is not blowing in from the front, you can even cook or stow gear under the awning."

Great Tent!!

Just a heads up. If you start having problems with the coating on the inside of the tent getting sticky, MSR has a liberal return policy. Mine was fine, but getting slightly tacky. I sent it back and they sent me a new Fast Stash tent, even though in their words, there were no issues with mine.
