MSR Front Range

In keeping with the tradition of no-nonsense ultralight shelters, The MSR Front Range is another example of a “Mid” style tent that can serve as an emergency shelter or a lightweight alternative to traditional tents. The Front Range capitalizes on its already minimal design by allowing users to substitute a ski pole or trekking pole as the central support, further reducing the weight one needs to carry.

It also has the benefit of a pre-weatherproofed exterior, saving on the time and effort you’d need to use to take it out into the wilderness.
