When it comes to winter backcountry camping, MSR's new Access Tents are carving fresh tracks. Lighter than a classic mountaineering tent, but warmer than backpacking tents, they're the first tents to strike a balance between high-quality winter protection and true lightweight performance in livable designs.

To meet the needs of winter touring adventurers, Access Tents balance three important design priorities: They're lightweight. They're warm enough for frigid winter nights. And they're strong enough to withstand the types of winter conditions typically found in the sheltered environments around tree-line.

To stay light, Access tents utilise durable, yet lighter-weight 20D/30D ripstop nylon fabrics. As four-season tents, Access tents offer greater warmth than a backpacking tent to combat cold winter nights. They feature limited mesh on the tent body to keep in the hard-earned heat that backcountry travelers can generate. A unique center cross pole that extends down to the ground on both sides of tent, creates two additional pillars of support. Bolstering their durability, Access Tents are among the industry's first to feature cutting-edge Easton Syclone Poles—the most resilient tent poles ever made

With quick and easy setup, a spacious interior for delayering, generous vestibules and convenient internal features for gear management, Access Tents are the most livable lightweight winter tents on the market. They maintain the meticulous attention to detail and precision engineering that have defined MSR's family of tents.

The Access Series tents are available now in selected retailers.
