This item is currently not available.


Weighing a mere .46 kg (1 lb) this ultralight and ultra-packable shelter is ideal for thru-hikers and long-distance backpackers on extended trips in the backcountry. It delivers all the essentials: excellent ventilation, bug-free protection, and space for three backpackers—or extra room for two. Use the Mesh House on its own for maximum ventilation, or pair the shelter with the Thru-Hiker 70 or 100 Wing (sold separately) for added wind and rain protection. Whatever the trip or conditions—marshy meadows in the Sierra Nevadas or thunderstorms in the Cascade Range—this highly adaptable shelter system lets you choose the weight and protection you want.

Beginning in 2019, MSR’s ultralight tents and shelters feature their unique Xtreme Shield™ System that does away with conventional seam taping for durable, precision-stitched seams that last far longer on lightweight tents. IIf you anticipate camping in heavy or extended rain, MSR recommends sealing the seams where necessary. Seam sealing will ensure maximum waterproof defense and a tent with exceptional longevity. It’s easy to do with

GEAR AID® Seam Grip +FC™ Fast Cure Sealant or use the Seam Grip +WP™ for ultra-long-lasting performance.
