Making your way through the backcountry is already difficult enough when everything's covered in snow, and hauling a heavy mountaineering tent along with all your other gear doesn't make it any easier. To address this problem, MSR designed the Access 3 Tent: 3-Person 4-Season to be lighter than traditional mountaineering tents, yet still warmer and more protective than backpacking tents, so you can venture deeper into the backcountry and still sleep comfortably. The unique central support frame optimizes interior space to fit all your gear, while resisting snow loading so middle-of-the-night storms don't catch you off guard. And since there's less stuff you have to deal with using frozen fingers, the unified frame is also easier to set up in cold conditions. Tough and lightweight Easton Syclone poles resist breaking, and two doors mean you don't have to crawl over your partner for a midnight bathroom break.
