MSR Access 3 Tent -Green
New for 2017 MSR have developed the Access 3 person Tent for light weight Four Season Trekking.
The Euro Green MSR Access 3 person tent is much lighter than a high altitude tent but warmer and more robust than a three season backpacking tent. The Access 3 person weighs in at only 2.3kg, but because of its unique frame design coupled with advanced ‘Easton Syclone’ poles, it stands up to high winds and heavy snow loads while providing a comfortable living space.
The cross frame increases internal volume on many MSR tent designs, but with the Access 3 tent the cross pole is extended to the floor, increasing stability in high winds and supporting the roof structure so it won’t 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 Access2 tent it’s strength while maintaining a low weight.
EMS Exclusive Offer: FREE EMS Access Wind Anchor Kit & Free 24hr Courier Shipping.
The MSR Access is supplied with eight large ‘Ground Hog’ stakes. Thats enough pegs to anchor down the freestanding tent structure plus two Guy lines (6+2 pegs)
However the Access is supplied with four guy lines and another four guy anchor points on the fly sheet. The idea being that you won’t need all of those anchor options most of the time and you might choose a different type of peg for sand or snow.
The Exclusive EMS Access Wind Anchor Kit includes six mini-Groundhog stakes, Two large Groundhog Stakes and four guy lines with tensioners to complement the Access design and utilise all its guy points. You might still want to swap and change your pegs around for sand or snow conditions, but the free EMS A.W.A.K should be perfect for most other conditions. There’s also a simple diagram of how we like to set up the Access tent with the Free Wind Anchor Kit in the additional images on this page.

Winter trips require so much more gear. More fuel, more clothes and heavier sleeping bag. It all adds up to a monstrously heavy rucksack.
The good news is that if you split the MSR Access 3 tent between three people it only weighs 767 grams each.
The large internal volume, two door and two large vestibules make living in the tent much more pleasant, especially on long trips.

POST SCRIPT - I bought one! (two person - green). I'll test it and report.
