Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, has won a 2011 Golden Outdoor Award for its MSR Gear Shed tent vestibule from the Netherlands' premier outdoor adventure magazine, Op Pad. The MSR Gear Shed vestibule was selected for its innovative concept, light weight and functionality.

The second annual Op Pad Outdoor Award competition paid tribute to nine categories, of which three products in each category received a golden, silver or bronze award and a readers' choice award. An independent and qualified jury evaluated each participating product in categories such as innovation, durability, user-friendliness, use of materials and design.

This versatile new MSR Gear Shed tent vestibule adds increased livability to any existing MSR Hubbaâ„¢ or Hubba Hubbaâ„¢ tent, transforming a lightweight backpacking tent into a park-and-play or base camp tent. The add-on hoop-style vestibule adds 26.5 square feet of space and features a partial floor to provide a clean place to store gear.

The MSR Gear Shed tent vestibule is available in stores starting January 2011.
