Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor ventilation. Otherwise great. I recently bought this tent and took it out for 2 nights on a coastal hike. Each morning my sleeping bag was soaked from condensation dripping off the inner tent ceiling onto my bag. The 2nd night I had the inner tent door unzipped at the top even but it didn't change anything. Not a drop of rain either night but was humid each morning. There is only 1 small 'vent' in the inner tent. I can't imagine using this tent in a humid climate (Pacific Northwest in my case) and my sleeping bag staying dry. Very disappointed in MSR since they are a PNW based company & to design a tent with such poor ventilation seems odd. The tent is solid & I believe it would hold up in high winds, snow & rain but I suspect my sleeping bag would be wet regardless. This tent needs 3 more 'vents" & it would probably be the best solo tent money could buy. I would not recommend this tent, especially not for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intuitive! For me, the most intuitive tent wins. I want the tent up and ready in 1 minute at the end of the day, especially when the weather is bad. I tested this tent out on Mt. Hood, the North Cascades, and a whole summer in Rifle Canyon. It saw wind, rain, hail, and a thunderstorm. I had the tent set up with numb fingers. It passes the test on every occasion!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best treeline tent.. but with meaningful warts When it comes to 4-season tents you have a choice of 9lb+ porta-caves (e.g. the Trango) or 3-4lb treeline tents such as the MSR Access that will support a foot or two of snow and withstand serious wind. The Access makes good compromises to keep the weight respectable without "stupid light" choices such as mesh body or 10D fabrics (yes, I am talking about the Slingfin Portal). It is reasonably easy to set up, can be pitched fly first without contortions with the optional footprint, uses robust fabrics, and has copious guy points. But it is far from perfect. Unlike the Hubba NX1, which seems targeted at hobbits with its 36 inch peak height, the Access 1 is 40 inches tall. However, it insists on maintaining the unreasonably short 84 inch inner. If you are 6 ft or over your head and feet will touch the inner walls, and the unavoidable condensation there will get your sleeping bag damp. Not sure why MSR does this, it makes no sense other than to allow them to use universal footprints. This is a particularly significant oversight for this type of tent, where warmer days allowing to dry out your sleeping bag may be limited. The door on the inner narrows where the torso typically enters and exits. The placement of the seams dictates this choice, and despite that ingress and egress is fairly straightforward ever for someone like me who is not very flexible. There are only two pockets - one at the foot and one at the head. The absence of side pockets in the head and ceiling areas is inexplicable, and frankly inexcusable. Have not yet used it in humid conditions, but the ventilation of the inner is provided by a single small triangular window. In addition to limited ventilation it cannot be covered with a solid panel. Would have loved to see two windows with solid covers. Great that MSR has started using wide mouth stuff sacks, but making that from 30D fabric added a few unnecessary ounces to the packed weight. That is one area where a lighter fabric would have been justified. The poles collapse to a fairly significant length. They don't fall together even, with 1-2 sections sticking out both on top and the bottom and adding 2-3 inches on either side to the pole sack length. This makes the pole sack too long to be stored in a horizontal position in the pack. I am sure MSR has tested this, but bending the Syclone poles is a nerve wracking experience - the plasticky feel makes me think that they will snap at any time. There is no pole sleeve provided - not sure if this means that MSR thinks the poles will never break, or that a sleeve will not be effective if they do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried 3 other brands before trying MSR tent. Went on a 6 night back pack hunting trip at 6500ft in the beartooth wilderness area of montana in september so I was expecting snow / wind and thats why I wanted to try a 4 season tent. I chose the access 1 because of the weight and price. My first day it was windy, 30 mph winds all day, I didnt use all the steaks, just the 4 corners and 1 for the rain cover and it held up just fine. The next 2 days it snowed all day, heavy wet snow, it took out my bear fence actually. The tent kept me dry and warm, I had some(very little) condensation on the roof but that is to be expected from a tent, but compared to the tents i tried in the past this one did great, last year i had to leave early because it snowed and i woke up all wet and tons of condensation on the roof. For the size of the tent, It was nice being able to sit up all the way and wide enough to sleep comfortably (I am 6'4" and I had a couple inches to spare if your 6'6" it would be tight, no complaints for me though). I like the rain cover how theirs enough room to keep your boots, pack and bow dry but not inside the tent. Overall I noticed the tent kept in heat and stayed dry. I only use a 20 degree sleeping bag and with the weather I kept warm over night, with other tents i would always wake up freezing but not with this one. Worth the upgrade to this 4 season pack-able tent if you plan on seeing snow/colder weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers as advertised I have used this tent in an ice storm, snow storm and cold-ish (15-25f) temps. It shrugged off the ice easily. It vented really well (minimal condensation), and it's quite warm. I am very pleased with the ease of set up. It's intuitive to the point that I was able to pitch it at night with stiff and frigid fingers. As advertised, it's footprint is small and I was able to find a space in thick forest. I have yet to experience any winds it couldn't handle. With the 4 guy-outs, it sunk into the ground like a limpet. Luckily, I am a side sleeper, so the lack of length (I am 6'2"") is okay. I will be heading up to some ridges this January in N.H. I have total confidence it will be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Applied Use For a single person 4 season tent this one comes in at a very light weight and packability. It's easy to set up. Taking down can be more challenging requiring hot water. During a 3 day white out conditions storm on top of a mountain I hunkered down. After storm finished I had a hard time being able to disassemble the tent due to the canopy straps being frozen. This design requires those straps to be pliable in order to install or remove canopy. Once saturated and frozen they are rigid and difficult to release. Without hot water I would have to otherwise had to cut straps or abandon the tent. I feel like the tent poles could be split into two pieces and redesigned with a connection that would marry to two. It's roomy inside height wise and has a mini vestibule. I found about a 15° warmer temperature difference from inside to outside as it holds heat well and any moisture you feed it. Ultimately I see this best used for short dry winter camping trips. I don't recommend for storms where accumulation of snow will occur. The tent won't be able vent and it'll rain inside. In the end I see myself using this for a thru hike of the CDT as best applied use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like mine.. Sweet, petite, and neat.... for those solo journeys where a light load and low space in your pack are desired. It keeps the wind and rain out.

What is the pole material? The description says aluminum but the pictures show the Syclone Fiber poles.

Asked by: Maxw
Hey there, thanks for pointing that out. It looks like the Aluminum is a typo, we are working to remove that ASAP. The MSR Access 1 Tent uses Easton Syclone composite tent poles. Thanks again.
