The MSR Stormking Tent is an all-season tent for 5 persons to hunker down in the worst of weather. Double wall and built for the extremes of snow and rain. The dome shape and structure features equal length poles and color coding so you can set it up without getting confused. The front vestibule offers plenty of space for storing boots and wet things while the smaller side vestibule gives an extra spot for other items. That way you're not all sleeping on top of your gear. Tuck in for the night and listen to the whistling winds.

  • Massive front vestibule fi ts the whole team
  • Hooped vestibule redesigned for more efficient use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from msr quality I have the pre-2008 non-orange version. I think this may be the strongest tent ever made at this price point and weight range, when fully guyed out. If you go with the $5,000 Everst style tents they of course would be stronger. It still had the full pole sleeves and much heavier fly material. The 64 inch height makes this an excellent base camp or car camping tent. I added MSR cord tensioners and Exped cord bags to my tent. This makes set up and storage easier. For peg's I use 8 of the new wide MSR smc snow stakes on the vestibules and the 4 corners in snow along with the regular MSR perforated snow stakes on the rest. On non-snow this works fine with regular MSR stakes. You can be super comfortable in this tent with 3 to 5 people. Lots of pockets and great included gear loft. Same basic configuration is still there today with lighter materials (orange) and clips not sleeves, so it is not as strong but it is easier to set up and take down. Absolutely no problem with zippers. Digging out vestibule area a couple of feet down in snow is recommended for functionality. Virtually no flapping sound to fly in high winds with full guy out. For one to two people this is a winter palace. For 3 or 4 very comfortable. For 5 functional and not to tight. I will add photo later. Water does pool on top in center but it can be addressed through waterproofing or adding spider to create micro dome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tent - some reservations ... I love MSR gear, but my feelings about this tent are mixed. I live in a remote location so I wasn't able to see the tent before purchasing. I purchased the previous version of this tent (just before the current version was released). This is meant to be a basecamp tent and while the size is perfect for this, it's built like a lightweight backpacking tent. After about 25 nights in this tent, here are some of my findings. Keep in mind, this is a *very* expensive tent. 1) The zippers: Quite frankly, they're horrible. They're not YKK; I'm not sure why MSR would break-away from the industry standard (cost most likely). They're undersized and rough to use. Without question, they will fail (soon). They're also very loud. I have a few other premium-brand tents (US and European) and the zippers are silky smooth. At this price point, I expect top-quality zippers. 2) The fly material is waaaay too light. It's super delicate and very noisy in high-winds. Again the zippers on the fly are terrible. A basecamp tent should have a higher-denier fabric. 3) Similar to the fly, the floor needs a burlier fabric to avoid puncture. On hard corners (i.e. where the poles connect to the tent), the material should stronger. You need to use a footprint with this tent. 4) The fly pole sleeve should be made out of a mesh fabric to avoid stiction. When the fly is wet, it's virtually impossible to remove the pole (it sticks or freezes to the fabric). As mentioned above, the Stormking is an expensive tent and also unique in that it's a 5 person (most 4 season tents max-out at 4 occupants). Given its weight and size, it's best suited to basecamp use. At this price point and defined user group (expedition/4 season use), I'd expect better detailing on a tent like this. For long-term expedition use in harsh climates, I'm not sure how well it would fare. I can live with the material choices and just be careful, but the zippers are inexcusable on a tent of this caliber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought in 2016 - v2.0 We have the first version of the tent that uses pole clips rather than sleeves (like the 2010 review referenced here). Overall the tent is awesome. We use it as a car-camping tent for our family of four and there is plenty of room inside to spare. Things we love about the tent: -Tons(!) of pockets (20 or so, I think) -You can fully zip up the windows in the door - this makes it much warmer. -Very strong and bombproof. I think there are something like 20 pole crossings on this thing. -Huge front vestibule that can be entered/exited without getting rain inside the tent (though I think the current version is a touch smaller than ours). -Plenty of guy out loops that can be used as needed for extra strength/stability - we've put dedicated cords on some of them. -The pentagonal floor plan is symmetric meaning you don't have a wide/narrow end or anything like that to contend with. There is some inherent asymmetry since the second door is not directly opposite the first. Having said all of that there are two - and I think only two - things we don't like. One of them has been remedied in the newer version (3.0 with the fancy poles). 1. Even though we have yet to see a drop of water penetrate the rainfly water does pool up on the top of the tent during prolonged rain. The tent pole structure naturally creates a flat spot at the apex (pentagonal in shape, imagine that). MSR has cleverly addressed this with a 3-pole "spider" that attaches to this spot and lifts the very top of the fly higher. But, since this spider piece is 3 pole and not 5 there still remains enough flat area for water to collect. Not a huge deal but one I feel that they should have addressed. 2. The rainfly on our version is made of nylon. Nylon expands when wet meaning that once the rain begins I have to re-tension my tent (meaning I have to get wet) in order to keep the fly drum-tight. The 3.0 version's fly is made of polyester so this will no longer be a problem. Excellent job, MSR!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only tent you need. Bought this tent in 2010 and have used it for our family of 4 in all seasons including winter camping. A supremely durable, hardy tent that has withstood many storms. Because of it's extreme tautness it can be tricky for one person to set up alone. Also because of it's rugged construction it is not highly ventilated and can be very hot during summer camping. But absolutely worth having one tent that can withstand all conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from strong and weather proof I have had this tent for 7 years. It has withstood sand storms, heavy rain, extreme wind and survived. Because it was used in the desert in Saudi Arabia for 5 years I had to get the zippers replaced. I hope to continue using this for many years still. With a family of 4 we are really comfortable in this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storm King / Tent King My wife and I have had our Storm King for many years now. When the kids were young, it doubled as an indoor playground. With groups, it's the place everyone hangs out and plays cards or socialize during nasty weather. This summer, I set it up for my brother and his wife to celebrate a special anniversary AND we hauled out a mattress on the water taxi in Prince William Sound kayaking & SUPing. Has never leaked and the quality is the BEST!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best ever I bought this tent 7 years ago and have used it extensively from river rafting trips to winter camping in the worst of weather. Of all the tents I have owned in my over forty years outdoors it is the best I have owned. I have had Sierra Designs and North Face and this has held up the best and is the easiest to use. I would buy another even though the price has almost doubled since I bought mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb proof I recently purchased the stormking for some back country trekking and summer camping and I can safely say it swallows up everything you can throw at it. Its so simple to set up and take down even when solo. the front vestibule is massive just like the rest of the tent, stacks of room where you need it.
