MSR® Zoic™ tent keeps you cool and dry on warm-weather adventures Product News

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."

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.
