Ueli Steck helps MSR design next generation of all-season tents

Written by 

The new tents span the scope of winter activities and provide unmatched protection, comfort and convenience, whether tackling remote first ascents, undertaking multi-day ski or snowboard missions in the backcountry, or setting out to conquer mountaineering classics.

Access Backcountry

Lighter than mountaineering tents and providing more protection and warmth than backpacking tents, the Access Backcountry Series of one, two and three-person tents provides a high-level of livability in a lightweight package designed for skiers, split-boarders and anyone else travelling long distances in winter conditions. The only tent series of its kind on the market, the Access series of tents is engineered with an easy-to-assemble frame design and durable fabrics that stand strong in cold, snowy and windy conditions. A large vestibule protects gear, freeing up more space on the inside. Two doors come standard on the two- and three-person models, making middle-of-the-night pee breaks that much easier.

Remote Mountaineering Series

The Remote two- and three-person tents were built with livability and weather protection in mind, protecting mountaineers in extreme conditions, whether tackling a multi-day or multi-week trips in the mountains. Designed for amateur and experienced users alike tackling big objectives like Mt. Denali and Mt. Rainier, the Remote tents come with strong, flexible Easton® Syclone™ poles designed to withstand extreme weather without deforming. Atypical for lightweight mountaineering tents, the unique central support frame stands up to extremely high winds and pressure from snow loading, providing a safe and comfortable space to wait out a storm or get ready for your alpine start. Extra space is allotted for bulky mountaineering gear, and two large doors allow for easy entry and exit.

Advanced Pro

Part of the Pro Mountaineering Series, the Advance Pro™ 2 tent supports first ascents and multi-day summit approaches. Its convenient setup system and small footprint differentiate the Advance Pro 2 from other tents of its kind. One person can set up the entire tent without taking a single step – a crucial detail when pitching on a high-consequence ledge. The Advance Pro 2 comes with Easton Syclone Poles, made with a flexible, nearly indestructible advanced composite material used exclusively on MSR four-season tents. The tent’s welded guy-outs and a newly engineered hub construction ensure protection and durability in the worst conditions.

H.U.B. & H.U.B. Gear Shed

The High-Altitude Utility Basecamp (H.U.B.) shelter is engineered to serve expedition teams in extreme winter conditions. With room enough for 10 people, two large entrance doors with removable panels for ventilation, clear windows for checking weather, and large pockets for storage, the H.U.B. serves as the ultimate basecamp house for professionals. Weighing less than 9 pounds, the H.U.B. Gear Shed adds an extra 65 square feet to the H.U.B., offering more storage space to accommodate gear and make room for preparations away from the sleeping area.
