  • Summary: Excellent moderate priced 1- or 2-person mountaineering tent or winter tent for backpacking or kayaking situations.
  • Pros: Strong, Excellent resistance to rain and snow, 22 seperate guy out points
  • Cons: Heavier than a single wall tent, One of the guy outs interferes with getting in and out of the front vestibule, Difficult to set up in the dark or windy conditions, probably why they changed to clips in 2011

  • Excerpt: (I am using the upgraded 2010/2011 Fury without the pole sleeves and instead using the pole clips-—much better). NIGHT FALLS IN THE BLACK CAVE CAMPS It's a clear night sky with a bright moon overhead and such a night shows the immediate advantage of this tent over the Hilleberg tents I have used in...

25 March 2011
  • Summary: Fury Mark II, edited version, see below in bold font. Updated once again by MSR's design dept., who never seem to find time to leave the desk and put one of their tents up. Originally a Moss design (along with a few others that MSR bought around 2004), this tent has gone from mid-weight to...

  • Excerpt: This tent is difficult to set up in ideal circumstances (my living room) and one succeeds 2/3 times. On the mountain it is extremely difficult to set up and nearly killed my partner and I on a February ascent of Long's Peak.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tent just before Xmas day 2007, for my climbing trip to Mount Whitney. On Xmas night we had an incredible windy night, like I've never had before. The tent stood perfectly (I had some snow pads for the vents, you can't trust the stakes that come with the tent in relatively soft snow).

  • Excerpt: For a four-season tent I can't see you doing much better than this one. I am in the SouthEast where humidity rules supreme, but in the winter time this tent got me through two inches of rain in one night. No leaks or condensation! After that it snowed on us and no worries.

  • Excerpt: Quite light tent well suited for long hiking. Though we usually prefer hiking in mountains we have had so far the chance to test it only in the area of Great Lakes. The tent can be set-up and taken down in 5-10 minutes.
