The best 2-person tent for winter backcountry trips.
Now updated with rainfly vents and a swivel pole hub, our Access tents let you spend comfortable days in the winter backcountry without hauling around heavy mountaineering tents. Lighter than our mountaineering tents and warmer than our backpacking tents, these strong tents provide skiers, hunters, alpine trampers and snowshoers with a robust home base for their mountain pursuits.
The cross frame increases internal volume on many MSR tent designs, but with the Access 2 tent the cross pole is extended to the floor, increasing stability in high winds and supporting the roof structure so it will not collapse under heavy snow loading.
The poles themselves are completely new composite polymer design created by Easton Technologies exclusively for MSR. Tough, flexible and lightweight the Easton Syclone poles are a leap forward in pole technology that help give the Access 2 tent its strength while maintaining a low weight.
STRONG DESIGN: Now featuring a swivel pole hub for faster setup, the tents central support frame holds up to high winds and heavy snow loads. Virtually unbreakable Easton Syclone Poles further boost durability. RELIABLE PROTECTION: Durable fabrics offer full protection and warmth in cold weather and in snow conditions found at tree line. LIVABILITY: Rainfly vents reduce condensation, while large vestibules protect gear, freeing up more livable room inside the tent.
