Why We Like The Remote 2 Tent

Tough enough to handle the harsh winter conditions you'll face on exposed peaks, the MSR Remote 2 Tent offers the combination of protection and livability you need to stay comfortable and levelheaded when you're in the alpine for days or weeks at a time. A sturdy central-support frame and nearly unbreakable Easton Syclone poles ensure it can handle heavy snow loads and raging ridgeline winds.


  • Four season tent is lightweight for expeditions but doesn’t sacrifice durability
  • Large floor space accommodates two climbers and bulky mountaineering gear
  • Spacious hooped vestibule houses essentials for gear-intensive climbing and skiing
  • Color-coded pole clips allow for an easy setup even in the harshest conditions
  • Reinforced guy-out points maintain tension and snow flaps seal for spindrifts

Wanted to Love It

I just finished my third trip using the tent and I really loved some features, but it became unlivable after three nights in a row. Starting with the negatives, the claimed weight is deceiving. You need many more stakes than the 10 that come with it, as well as additional guy lines when using this in an exposed setting. It can be difficult lining up the rain fly seams with the poles - multiple adjustments are needed to get it just right. You want the seams aligned in case of rain/sleet and because that's the reinforced part of the material that will be stressed by pole movement in heavy winds. Now on to the worst part: condensation. Even with the ventilation flaps completely open and the top of the vestibule zippers unzipped, by the second night, the inside of the tent was completely covered in ice crystals. By the end of the third night, it was so bad that my sleeping bag lost its loft because the ice basically falls like snow inside, getting everything wet. And when you go to tear down the tent in the morning, the poles are often frozen along the shock cord seams and you can't fold them to put them away because of - condensation. I had to hold the poles my hand to get them unfrozen. By the end of the fifth night of my last trip, I was completely over it. Keep in mind I was by myself - this would be impossible to use for multiple nights for two ppl. Unless you're able to dry the tent out every day I just don't see how anyone can use this more than one night (I had six days of snow and cloudy weather). As for positives, the vestibule size was amazing; I had no problems on a ridge with 60mph gusts and sustained 25-40mph winds; I love the color when you're on the inside - sounds weird but it was great for morale when hunkered down in sub-zero temps; consistently 10-15 degrees warmer on the inside; the options for staking out and guying out are great; and snow flaps were a nice touch. Overall, the tent seemed to be indestructible.

Would highly recommend

Just return from extended backpacking/climbing trip in Colorado. The tent performed perfectly. The only bad thing is I did not get any bad weather to really give it a try. Have another trip planned in Oct., I'm sure I'll get some nice snow by then.

Big tent in a small package

The tent has a lot of room and is very robust. The large fly is great for getting in and out in stormy conditions.

No vents in fly

Great tent, really light for it´s size and toughness. Really comfortable inside, with two doors. Vertical walls are really good. Vestibule size is awesome, lots of gear inside plus room for cooking. DOWNSIDE: Condensation!! No way of getting rid of condensation even having tent doors open. We were on an expedition with other friends using a low budget 4 season tent (Tasmanian), and they had no condensation, while we had a lot. Add vents to the fly!!

Solid tent, but too much condensation.

Good layout, vestibules, weight, packability. Only complaint is there's a lot of condensation, even in ideal weather conditions.

outstanding 4 season alpine tent

outstanding 4 season high alpine tent. the MSR attention to detail is impressive, from the quality of the fabrics, to the guy lines and hi grade metal hardware - it is obvious this tent was developed by people who live and operate in the mountains, not in board rooms. spacious vestibule, comfortable sleeping space for 2 in a bomber package that i would trust in the harshest weather. well done MSR.

Strong, comfortable and relatively lightweight

Easy to setup, in 50mph winds we barely knew something is going on outside (okay, there was a bit of noise from the fly, but nothing serious), sheds snow nicely and fits two people and all the gear they can carry comfortably. Also, it is one of the lighter tents in its category. What I did not like: ventilation is a bit tricky, as there are no real vents on this tent. We used the two-way zippers in vestibules to create draft, but it was a bit fiddly. Usually we needed to wedge an item (an iphone case works well) into the zipper to keep a reasonably large opening. In the end, we managed to keep the condensation to a bearable level and did not get our gear wet. What bugs me the most about this tent, is the fact that only 9 (!!!) pegs are included, which is just barely enough to pitch the tent - you will need a lot more if you expect some serious weather. The Groundhog pegs work surprisingly well in dead-man-anchor position, even in loose snow, which is why I don't complain you don't get proper winter stakes with an expedition tent, but the fact you only get 9 of those is just ridiculous. I pitched the tent using 16 pegs and there were still around 10 possible pegging/guy-out points left unused. Which brings me to guy lines. Super strong, easy to operate, reflect light so you don't trip over them at night, but at least 6 are not included with the tent. My understanding is, you just get the bare minimum of stakes and guy lines needed to reasonably anchor the tent so that the listed packaged weight is as low as possible, and this is something that just makes me feel like I am being screwed over. It would feel more fair, if the ""less necessary"" guy lines and stakes were included in the package, left for the user to decide if they want to take them or not. IMHO the lowest possible packaged weight is doing no good, if every review says there are not enough stakes and guy lines included. Still, a great tent - but be aware of the missing guy lines and pegs.

Good purchase for a tall person who wants to be comfortable

Just spent my first night in this tent and I really like it. To start, I'm a tall person at 6'1 and 190lbs. Prior to buying this tent I've owned the MEC TGV 2 tent (the older one) and spent approx 20 something nights in it. I found that the TGV was just too small for me and another person to stay in. So I started researching for a 4 season 2 person ""livable"" tent that still came in at a reasonable weight. Remote 2 seemed to fit the bill. For the MSR remote the first obvious thing is it's way bigger, the two vestibules are huge, interior is tall, and the floorspace is generous. My normal climbing/camping partners are around the same size as me, so an oversize 2 person like this is ideal. The tent also packs down fairly small and isn't too heavy for two people to split up the weight. My first night spent in here was solo and in around -10C on a fairly calm winter night set up on firm ground. I left both vents wide open and had no condensation, although since I was on my own, don't use that as a representation of the condensation management of this tent. Now the downsides - The snow flaps should have a velcro attachment so they can be tucked away (instead of flapping in the wind) if you're not on snow, and the instructions for setting up the fly were not clear. At home I only set up the base of the tent and not the fly, don't do that. Setting this up in the field during sunset took a lot of frustration. Final downside was the footprint is a bit too large for the tent so takes a few extra minutes to keep secure while setting up the tent.
