Coming to Philmont on a trek?
Need to replace your troop tents?
Just looking for a reliable backpacking tent?
Look no further! The MSR Thunder Ridge was designed by and for Philmont Scout Ranch. Thunder Ridge camp is located just west of Cyphers Mine which is notorious for extreme weather conditions. This tent can stand up to whatever Thunder Ridge camp can throw at it. The development of this tent began in 2011 and was evaluated yearly by Philmont campers, staff, and the MSR tent designers. This information was used to continually develop a tent that can withstand the rigors of the Philmont trails and the harsh use by backpackers over and over again at Philmont. Up until the spring of 2014 the only way to use one of these tents was to pick one up at Outfitting Services to use during a trek. Read more here at MSR's Thunder Ridge blog.
But starting summer 2014, the Thunder Ridge is now available to purchase. This tent was built to withstand continuous use for 72 days straight by Philmont campers. A highly durable, highly efficient tent, the Thunder Ridge is a force to be reckoned with. Philmont’s original Thunder Ridge Tents, introduced in 2012, and still going strong.
