Great Tent with great views
Reviewed by Forrest from Seattle WA on Friday, September 6, 2013
I replaced my Alps Mountaineering tent that had sprung a leak after about five years with this Marmot tent. I read the reviews and it seemed like it would fit my needs. I've had it out fot two backpainkng trips so far, and I'm very happy with it. It is a bit wider at one end than the other which works well for space for my shoulders. I hike alone, and it might be a bit tight with two, but the vestibules are large and seem to work well though I usually keep most of my gear in the tent with me. I like the large mesh panels. they are especially nice when the bugs are fierce as I don't feel shut off from the outside as I was in the old tent. It is even easier to set up than the old tent, and very stable. I moved campsites twice last weekend as I hadn't realized the sites were assigned by number in Mt. Rainier National Park. I didn't need to take it down to move it up and down the hillside. I'd definitely recommend it to others. It isn't the lightest out there, but very comfortable.
