In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives our team today: The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment is the key to unlocking greater adventures. MSR has strong perspectives on how a product should work based on their own experiences in the wild places they love. They believe that innovative solutions are bred by challenging convention, and that functionality, simplicity and reliability are the governing elements of enduring design.

Backcountry travel in winter is already hard enough with all the extra gear and layers, and a bulky mountaineering tent just makes it that much more difficult. Understanding this, MSR designed the Access 1 Tent: 1-Person 4-Season to be lighter than traditional mountaineering tents, yet still warmer and more protective than backpacking tents.

The unique central support frame optimizes interior space to fit all your gear while resisting snow loading so middle-of-the-night storms don't catch you off guard. And since there's less stuff you have to deal with using frozen fingers, the unified frame is also easier to set up in cold conditions. Tough and lightweight Easton Syclone poles resist breaking, and two doors mean you don't have to crawl over your partner for a midnight bathroom break.
