Excellent tent: dry in even epic storms, well-vented in the hot and humid, and quite light for the features and space. A steal at this price.

I have used for five years and many nights and miles with no complaints and much joy. The innovative pole arrangement (later copied by other brands) make t... Read More

    I've had this on the trail 3 of the last 4's a great tent! I wish it would have come with a footprint and upper gear storage, but otherwise, no complaints!

    The bent poles allow more useable space than a standard pole because the walls are more upright. The setup is pretty easy once you figure it out the first time. The webbing loops across the top are color-coded to the poles. The webbing on the fly shows you which corner it goes to. This is necessary because the tent is not symmetrical. One door is smaller and has a smaller vestibule. The good: It held up well in a strong, windy rainstorm even without the guy lines. There are no pre-cut guy lines, just one long, very cheap piece of nylon cord and a few very cheap plastic sliders. The door/fly combination is awkward. They only partially overlap, so getting a small, low cot in and out was a pain. Getting myself in and out usually resulted in a back full of dew. The fly flaps cannot be tied back/untied from within the tent unless your whole torso is hanging outside. Meanwhile, bugs and rain get in. The all-mesh top would allow good ventilation if you left the fly off, but ventilation is poor with it on due to the design of the fly. Other than the unnecessary guy lines, the tent seems well made. It is certainly light. Not too happy I bought it, but not unhappy enough to return it. (This is an update to an earlier review before I had camped in it. If there's an easy way to update past reviews, I haven't found it.)

    I just erected it once indoor,the quality of fabric, poles and ground nail are all in high class under this discounted price.
    but the instruction is too simple to make it difference for me,the volume when they are folded is much bigger than my expectation.

    The light weight and higher sidewalls attracted me to this tent. I am replacing an A-frame Eureka Timberline 2 (a workhorse design that hasn't changed much in decades), so I am mostly comparing this tent to that tent. The setup is a bit awkward because all the poles are connected together and long. One person can set it up, but it would work better with two, especially if it's windy. The directions have no pictures. They could be clearer. For example, the orange pole goes into the orange webbing loops. I kept looking at the webbing loops in the corners, but they meant the loops higher up. Once you have set it up once at home, it should be fine in the field. The bent poles increase the usable space (vs. an A-frame). The vestibules are not generous, but are adequate. I haven't used it outside yet. The floor looks delicate. I plan to use it for car camping and will bring a tarp. If you're backpacking, and don't usually bring a tarp, that may be an issue.

    W e only set it up in the living room, but intend to back pack with it into the Grand Canyon. It's super light, appears to be well made and easy to set up. I will circle back to review again after we use it!

    • It's the beige and orange one. It performed well. We took it to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on a hiking trip. It was light, stood up to some significant rain and was really perfect. The only issue with it is that the fly gets caught in the door opening zippers quite easily, but once you realize that you are careful. Good luck.

    • The photos are accurate. It is orange with gray.

    • The rain fly connects to the poles, it would probably not be feasible to set up/take down the tent under the fly. The fly could probably be used without the tent if you use rope.

    • yes it is a three season tent but would do okay in winter with light snow. just make sure to have warm sleeping gear.

    • Buy some Tyvek, cut it to size and wash it. Let it air dry. You can buy at Home Depot or Lowes and also on e-bay. Much cheaper than a footprint.

    • I wish I could. I live in Arizona and havent found much of a need for a footprint. As for the tent, love it. I'm sorry I couldn't be anymore help to you.

    • I haven't been able to locate a footprint for this tent either. I have been using it w/o a footprint - as I do all of my tents. So far I have had no problems. If you feel you need one though, you could easily use a tarp (about 6' x 8') will work, but you will have to fold back the corners for the tent stakes, and remember, the back vestibule is more shallow than the front, so you may want to grommet places for the vestibule stakes.

About Marmot

Conceived in a university dorm room by a pair of climbing buddies, Marmot Mountain Works first opened its doors in the spring of 1974 in Grand Junction, Colorado. At the time, the base of operations was a 100-year-old stone building. That same year, the first Marmot down jacket was produced specifically for an action flick called “The Eiger Sanction,” starring legendary actor Clint Eastwood. In the four decades since, Marmot has continued to engineer reliable gear that exceeds the expectations of outdoor athletes. Today, Marmot tents, backpacks, outerwear, clothing and Marmot sleeping bags are still pushing the limits in the planet’s most challenging conditions, from the summits of the world’s highest mountains to the deepest river basins.
