MSR Backcountry Barn Tent

Description

Show Description

Single wall construction packs lighter and smaller than tents with an inner and a fly. They are also quick to set up, which is a boon when it's wet and windy. Vertical walls provide room to stand up and move around, so they make an ideal basecamp shelter or mess tent. Large widows and awnings on the Backcountry Barn allow venting and multiple guyline points let you lash it down when the wind picks up.

  • High centre allows you to stand at full height.
  • Steep sidewalls maximize interior space.
  • Removable bathtub floor (overlaps the walls inside) keeps out creatures and wetness.
  • Set it up without the floor to enclose a picnic table or rig an adventure race aid station.
  • 8 mesh pockets provide storage.
  • 3 interior lantern hooks allow gracious living in camp.
  • Large covered front and rear windows provide ventilation.
  • Awnings over front window and door, and rear window for weather protection.
