MSR Hubba NX (2014)

£300.00

The MSR Hubba NX is a huge one-person tent that’s ideal for multi-day use when that extra living space will be really appreciated. The tent is pitched inner-first with interconnected poles forming a frame from which the inner is suspended; the fly then goes over the top. Pitching is exceptionally easy, thanks to ladder-lock webbing buckles and limited need for ...

MSR Hubba Hubba NX (2014)

£335.00

This is the latest version of the classic MSR Hubba Hubba. The NX (Next Generation) uses lighter materials with a weight of just 1795g, which becomes even more remarkable when you consider it has a huge porch and entrance on each side. It pitches inner-first, so the inner may get wet if pitched in the rain, with a skeleton of ...

MSR E-Wing (2013)

£140.00

The MSR E-Wing takes the standard rectangular tarp shape and adds additional material at each end to allow more protection at the porches when pitched as an A-frame. This is very welcome and it makes the E-Wing ideal for use in general tarping situations where you aren’t going to require the most elaborate of pitching options. The tarp has guy ...

MSR Windpro II (2013)

£90.00

The MSR Windpro has been a popular remote canister burner for many years, but the latest update adds in the ability to use an inverted gas canister, as shown, to improve performance in cold weather, and when the canister is only half full. Like other remote burners, the big advantage of the Windpro II over burners that attach directly to ...

MSR SureLock UL-3 (2013)

£70.00

The popular twist mechanism can be both an unobtrusive and an immensely frustrating method of securing the length of poles. When moist or dirty the expander in the mechanism can fail to grip and will either lock shut or open, leaving you with a pair of poles that either won’t secure or won’t release. Worse still, the adjustment can even ...

MSR Whisperlite Universal (2012)

£125.00

The MSR Whisperlite Universal has been developed from the MSR Whisperlite International, which has been the mainstay of backpackers who needed a petrol stove that would perform in the toughest of conditions anywhere in the world. The advantage of the new Whisperlite Universal is that in addition to burning Coleman fuel, petrol and paraffin, it also burns gas, so no ...

MSR Carbon Reflex 1 (2012)

£325.00

The Carbon Reflex 1 is the lightest double-wall solo tent in the MSR range. Part of the weight saving comes from the use of carbon fibre poles, which are 30 per cent lighter than the aluminium equivalents and also stronger, according to the manufacturers. It is pitched inner-first with just two poles being required to create the inner tent structure, ...

First test: MSR Nook (2012)

£320.00

There are only so many ways to flex a pole and configure some fabric to make a backpacker’s shelter, and so it is no surprise to see that on first impressions the new MSR Nook appears to resemble many other modern tents. However it is often in the detail that the real benefit of a tent can be found, and ...

MSR SureLock TR-3 2012 (2012)

£113.00

The SureLock range of poles is MSR’s first entry into the competitive trekking pole market. It aims to tackle the classic problem of trekking poles – namely poor locking mechanism – by having a unique SureLock adjustment system, which relies on an internal pin that locates into a series of apertures on the inside of the tubes. The locking pins ...

MSR Sweetwater Purifier System 2011

£83.00

The MSR Sweetwater comes with a system of parts providing far more functionality out of this unit than others. You get a pre-filter on the inlet pipe to keep the dirt out of the filter, and there’s a float for the inlet pipe to prevent it sucking up sludge from the riverbed. There’s also an adapter that allows you to ...

The MSR Miox Purifier is a very compact and lightweight system that applies an electric current to a small portion of rock salt solution, that’s in turn added to the water requiring purification.

MSR Fast Stash 2011

£225.00

Tarps are a great idea in theory: they promise a simple shelter while adding little to your burden. Sadly, this theory trips up when confronted by good old British weather and the winged biting pests that plague our hills at the height of the wild camp season. The common solution is to use a bivvy bag for added protection, but ...

MSR E-Wing 2011

£125.00

MSR stands for Mountain Safety Research, suggesting a ‘belt and braces’ approach; but ‘lightweight and performance’ are probably more apt. The E-Wing takes the classic simple tarp rectangle and aims to add a little extra protection. DesignThe MSR E-Wing has a very basic design. It’s essentially just a large fabric sheet with the only detailing on the main body being ...

Billed as the fastest, most fuel-efficient system available, the MSR Reactor promised a revolution in stove design when it appeared in 2007.

MSR Titan Kettle 2009

£43.00

The MSR Titan Kettle’s titanium pot and lid provide outstanding performance for the weight and packed size. The 0.85 litre pot is large enough to accommodate a 250g gas cartridge and small enough to be used as a drinking cup. A spout makes pouring easier. But it’s just one pot and lid, so it’s not ideal for more ‘culinary’ cooks. ...

The MSR Hubba HP is a very light and small-packing tent. It’s an inner-pitched-first design with a multi-section, hubbed pole assembly that clips onto the inner very quickly. It’s then easy to move it to a spot you like before you add the outer and peg it down. The groundsheet is very waterproof and although the outer only has a ...
