    MSR Carbon 1 Tent

    Hi,

    As the title says I have a Carbon 1 MSR tent for sale. I brought it new and it is in mint condition. I have only used it a handful of times and always looked after it. It weights less than my Huntech Bivvy! (Which I should also get rid of!!) I am only selling as my boys are getting old enough to spend some overnighters with me in the bush so I want to get a 2 man tent.

    I can put up photo's if people want to see it in action.

    They are about $750 these days I think. So I reckon $450 is pretty fair.

    Cheers
    Scott.

    I have the two man version and absolutely love it. Good buying at that price too!

    Couple of photos would be good, has it got a footprint with it?

    Will do tonight. No I didn't get the footprint. I didn't see the point. A cheap tarp from the warehouse folded in half protects the bottom just as good as the footprint and is a hell of a lot cheaper.

    1 lbs 13 oz or 790 g. As I said I could not see the point anymore in using my Huntech 2 man bivvy when this had 4 walls and was more windproof AND lighter!

    $450 is a steal. Pretty sure the latest 1P is closer to $900 than $750 but I've not looked for a while. I have both 1P and 2P Carbons. Like them both. The 2P is pretty cozy though.

    Only really have a couple of photo's of it due to I take photo's of animals and scenery, not camp.

    And bugger kiwijames. He is right. They are a bit more than $750. If it doesn't sell soon I will put it on trade me for a more of a fair price.(To me that is!)
