MSR says:

The Access 3 tent lets you spend comfortable days in the winter backcountry without hauling around the weight of a large mountaineering tent. Warm, light and strong, this four-season tent provides the protection that skiers, splitboaders and snowshoers need for camping in less severe conditions, such as those near tree-line. The robust frame withstands overnight snow loading, and is quick to set up in the cold. Whether your party is base camping to access powder lines or completing a multiday traverse, the Access 3 tent is warm enough for cold winter nights, yet light enough to keep you nimble while on the move.

MSR's Access 3 Tent is a 4 season tent at a respectable 3 season weight, MSR have achieved this by adding a transverse pole to their now traditional dual hub structure to create a very stable structure and by 'beefing up' the key areas of the tent that would be strained in bad weather.

In addition to improving the pole structure MSR are also using tougher poles, they flex more and are therefore able to bend with the wind.

The flysheet isn't cut as close to the ground as on other 4 season tents but in use this is manageable, the inner tent is made from a solid fabric with mesh only being use sparingly - this means that the inside is protected from wind and spindrift, though gear in the porches will get covered in snow.

Light weight crap

OK, I have had the Access 3 for few months now, using in the Outer Hebrides. It’s known for its beauty, wind and rain. Extra guys not supplied. Extra pegs not supplied at £580. It’s not good. You need the extra guys fitted in moderate wind, with just the normal guys out it flops and flatness out like a floundering fish in less than 20 mph of wind. In high winds with all the guys in it holds well. The poles are great except the middle pole moves and can burst through the zipper of porch. Water poured in everywhere when it was driving rain. Fly sheet has started to show small tears and wear after a summers use and it's still not winter yet. So I have a £580 tent that’s practically useless in serious weather and so will be selling cheap and vowing to never buy another poor MSR product. And owned an MSR wing tarp that the weather devoured in a weekend, enough said.
