Built to be the ultimate shelter for winter backpacking, backcountry skiers and snowshoers, the Access 2 tent is lighter than a mountaineering tent, but warmer than our backpacking tents. Limited mesh on the tent body offers greater warmth on frigid nights, while the light and packable design saves you precious energy on the climb and descent. The interior is spacious for delayering, and the strong frame resists overnight snow loading. Quick to set up, the tent offers the protection needed for camping in less severe conditions, such as those near tree-line—making it perfect for accessing the bowls, ridges and powder fields above.
Easton® Syclone™ Poles
Made from aerospace-grade composite materials, Easton Syclone Poles flex, rather than break, under the abuse of brutal alpine winds—adding critical durability to our all-season mountain tents.
Durability in Demanding Conditions
Unlike aluminum and carbon poles than bend or snap under enough pressure, Syclone poles are built with composite materials wound from multiple directions into a tube—allowing them to flex under force and return to shape.
“We knew that if we struck the right balance between weight, stiffness and resilience we would have the ultimate tent frame. This is the next-generation pole design we've been searching for over 20 years. ”
