  • Summary: Very awesome tent. I've had mine for 8 years, had 1 pole snap (and repaired for free by MSR). Great in the cold with a good bag (I've used it down to -20c), good in strong wind. Very small for two adult males, and the vestibule is good for about 2 pairs of boots, no packs really. It's fairly small and light for a 4 season tent though. I love mine.

  • Summary: If you are looking for a 4-season tent get a proper one otherwise this is a passable but average 3-season tent that can zip up if the weather is bad. Not that sturdy as it has 3 poles not 4 so the bottom end moves around in the wind and needs to be pegged out well. Very hard to keep the fly off the inside in the side sections causing damp which made my bag wet, not good!

  • Summary: I got a hold of this tent at an REI garage sale when it had already been used and I have no idea why somebody would take this tent back. This is an incredible tent. It makes a great winter tent when you close up all the vents. I was very surprised at how warm I was inside the tent without having to get in my sleeping bag. While on the other hand I have also taken this tent on several summer trips. When you open up the vents everything cools off very quickly.

  • Summary: When i was looking for a tent I wanted one for all seasons. I researched 100s of tents. It took me about a month just to narrow down to finally picking the MSR Fusion 2. I have had it for about a year and a half now and I am in love with it. Took it camping many times through rain, hot, and cold and it defeats all seasons and weather with ease.

  • Summary: This tent is very, very tough. Great durability-to-space-to-weight ratio. I had no ventilation problems, but I am not a sweaty person! Not cramped, but not the biggest. The MSR's stowaway pouches and large overhead clearance are important! Not a summer only tent, but not a four season pain in the butt, perfect balance!

  • Summary: I have only used this tent on one trip in the mountains but I have a few things to say about it. The Fusion 2 is an okay tent; MSR uses high quality materials paired with a useable design. The fusion is very large inside with plenty of headroom. Also, it packs up easier than any tent I've ever used. But, it does seem to have some drawbacks. One, the weight is a little high, but to be expected with heavier duty materials. Secondly, the ventilation is not great.

  • Summary: Love this tent which I just bought this summer to replace a one person Moss Outland (poles kept snapping). The Fusion 2 feels huge and comfortable after a one person tent (I have been using it alone and love it when I'm holed up in wet weather). Good use of floor space. Nifty gear loft and innovative little pouch to place headlamp so can read/work in tent. Excellent in wind. Stakes out well. Great refelctive edges help locate tent in dark. No leaks.
