I have slept in the Access 2 Tent nine times and have to say that despite some drawbacks I really like it. The strength to weight ratio of this tent is impressive, setup is fast and the symmetrical design means that you can't put on the fly backwards. The vestibules are large and doors plenty big to get in and out of.
This tent is not a bombproof 4-season shelter. Lightweight materials and design come with tradeoffs. It is not built to stand up to 60mph wind in exposed areas. However, it is a warm tent, there are lots of guy points, and carbon poles that can be bent far further than their aluminum counterparts without breaking or permanently bending. Like any 4-season tent ventilation is a challenge and I could see condensation being an issue in wetter climates. Living in Utah though, I have had 0 condensation issues, even during a deluge where we had plenty of wet gear in the tent and where a single wall tent in our party heavily condensated. Unlike the previous reviewer, I have had no issues with the fly touching the tent body. The tent has 10 guy points. I have these 10 points tethered into four main guy outs with each line clove hitched to a micro carabineer on one of the 4 main guy lines. This allows me to tension each point on the tent individually and only have to carry 4 stakes to fully guy the tent. This seems to work great keeping the tent rock solid in 30mph winds. I would agree with the other review that the walls need to be steeper, but we have gotten used to them and find there is plenty of vertical and usable space above the heads of our sleeping pads. With condensation not being and issue in the rain and condensation being frozen in the winter I’m not overly concerned by the wall angles—After all it is going to be a warm tent with two people in it. Internal pockets are limited to two horizontal ones at the head and foot. I would like them to be a bit deeper, but are adequate. Finally, there are four loops on the ceiling of the tent. I lashed some cord in an x pattern to these points with a micro biner in the center. This gives us a clothesline for wet items, adds a bit of strength to the tents, and provides place to string up a Big Agnes MtnGLO strand of lights (highly recommended). Overall my modification of dyneema guy cord, biners stakes and lights added 6oz to the tent. Well worth it IMO for the added strength and creature comforts.
The tent is great, but loses a star for the price and the low walls. My partner and I fit in it comfortably (I’m 5’9 she is 5’6 we are both medium builds) with room for gear, but make no mistake there is not a lot of extra room. It could be a bit awkward with two bigger people sharing it that don’t like to cuddle. I’m excited to use it this winter for touring. Above treeline I’ll dig it down in the snow a bit for added wind protection, but am not worried about its strength.
