A True All-Elements Shelter
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I received the MSR Remote 3 tent a few weeks ago, and couldn't wait to test it out. I've been winter camping for years, but only ever in a 3-season tent; I was stoked to finally have proper snow, rain, and wind protection with the MSR Remote.
For its first test, I took the MSR to Mt. Washington; while our base camp didn't have more than a dusting of snow, the winds were at 40mph through the night-- this tent didn't budge one bit, and we slept soundly all night long.
Two days later, I took the tent up Mt. Mansfield (VT's highest peak), and set it up near the summit for a mid-morning coffee break. The winds were fast, the snow was heavy, and the temps were LOW-- the Remote made us feel like we were in a lodge or lean-to. We had full protection from the elements, and even warmed up quite a bit while inside of it.
I am blown away (no pun intended!) by the Remote's durability, ease of setup, and resilience.
I would recommend this tent to anybody looking for some SERIOUS 4-season shelter.
Awesome review, and sick photo Nicole! Way rad!
