This tent is one of the strongest and lightest double-wall tents in its class--the bombproof Fury boasts a lean fighting weight of 6 lbs. 10 oz.

Three-pole structure combined with Compression Tension Design™ provides superior strength, maximizes headroom and increases usable floor space
Large hooped vestibule provides a stable, roomy gear storage area
Offers excellent ventilation through the door, the large, zippered mesh rear window and peak vent with kickstand support
Color-coded poles and continuous pole sleeves provide easy set up
DryGuys™ guy out your tent in extreme conditions with up to a 10mm climbing rope; won't wick, freeze or hold water
Polyurethane-coated rainfly and floor provide excellent waterproofness and durability
Interior pockets, removable gear loft and utility loops keep your house organized and gear accessible
Adjustable stake loops have ladderloc tensioner that is backed up by a second webbing loop; four-season loops are large enough to accept skis
Rainfly door has zipper flaps to keep water out and is reflective for locating at night
Peak vents, guylines, water-repellent zippers and zipper pulls are also reflective
Patented ZipGate™ allows you to replace zipper slider in the field
MSR uses non-wicking materials throughout; these prevent water weight gain during your trip and won't transport water into the tent
RapidRoll™ stuff bag is generously sized and easy to use; designed like a climbing rope bag with side-loading for quick, easy packing

The MSR Fury is smaller but basically the Moss Stargazer. The only grip I have is the weight. The room inside is very spacious. I like the floor layout (rectangular). The corners don’t creep in, in stays orthogonal. Headroom is extremely spacious.

Moss Tent.

I Owned this tent for a 6 month trip in the Andes, and used it from sea level to 5700m. camps. This tent is just Great : Incredibely resistant, spacious, bright inside, small footprint, beautifull (in my opinion) ! I would recommend it for all conditions mountaineering and winter trekking.
Why did I sold it then ?... Mostly because of its weight and because I bought a Hilleberg Nammatj 2... 1,1 kg lighter !

Great Tent!. Have used it up in the Dolomites for more than 3 weeks. High winds, snow and heavy rain, no problem at all. Only disadvantage I can come up with is that it takes about 10-15 minutes to set up

Got this tent for a 3 month trip in South America. Used it for 6 weeks in Patagonia, through rain and high winds it withstood the punishment. Stayed dry even with puddles of water under the floor. Took it up Aconcagua where it worked great as well. Easy to put up and take down, it once again took the wind and heavy snow loads well. Tent bag makes for easing packing and it's significantly lighter than comparable tents such as the Trango 2. Overall great tent.
