UOG TOP PICK - MSR Access Series 4 Season tents - full 4 season, two skin, very light - We've singled out MSR's Access series tents as one of our top recommendations because MSR have achieved a full four season tent in a very lightweight package, the innovative pole structure is brilliant for shedding the wind.

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.

If you would like a footprint for this tent you will need the MSR Universal 3 Large Footprint (sold separately).

Could do better for UK weather conditions

Great tent, well built but... it's kind of great but isn't a good UK tent. For winter there are no upper venting options on the outer apart from door zips, risking snow and rain ingressing straight onto the inner as the zipper is along the line of the inner. The inner has tiny mesh panel on the door, so this risks lots of condensation building up. The fly doesn't go all the way down to the ground so in snow, lots of spindrift comes in. The poles flex amazingly, but I'd suggest to MSR, the side pole should continue to hold the outer in place at the porch ends. Change the outer zip direction so it follows the pole down the centre of the porch, away from the inner making it easier to vent and less risk of water ingress into inner. I would also then make the inner door bigger rather than a cramped half door. In summer it may be way too hot for use in the UK as the tiny inner door is the only vent and again no other real option for upper venting iother than the doors, as long as it's not raining. The groundhog pegs no longer come with any cordage attached and the tent is short of pegs - comes with x8 but in reality needs a minimum of 12 and can use up to 16 if you add 4 more guylines on to it to make it mega bomber. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastically well built tent, with amazing poles, but MSR have just not got every thing right for me to keep it and use. If MSR were to redesign it with these suggested changes I'm convinced they would have an amazing tent.
