MSR Remote 2 Mountain Tent
Due for release early 2017, MSR have developed the Remote 2 All Season Mountain Tent.
Designed to protect alpinists in extreme conditions the MSR Remote 2 person tent is more liveable with greater stability and protection than any other MSR tent. Whether you are spending three days or several weeks on the mountain these expedition quality tents deliver the sturdy reliability and protection regardless of the harsh conditions outside.
The MSR Remote 2 person tent is much lighter than previous ‘all-season’ tents while still providing liveability and protection. This is partly due to the 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, weighs in at only 3.37kg.
The cross frame increases internal volume on many MSR tent designs, but with the Remote 2 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 Remote 2 tent it’s strength while maintaining a low weight.
