I bought this tent for winter backpacking in the Smoky Mountain's of Tennessee. As of now I haven't used it, but I have set it up and packed it a couple of times. In doing so I have inspected it from top to bottom, I've spent time in it on a very windy day and was very happy with how sturdy it is an... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by G Gordon Liddy from Minnesota on Wednesday, September 02, 2015
    I originally wanted either the North Face Mountain 25 or the Montain Hardwear EV2. I went with this tent because I couldn't pass up the bargain price at Sierra Trading Post. After receiving it and setting it up, I'm glad I bought it and I'd probably go with this tent over the others even if priced the same.

    The design engineering is smart with an intent to produce a product that could withstand hurricane winds or blizzards. There are six poles that operate together to create strength and rigidity. The floor material is 70-weight Danier rather than 40. Unlike other 4-season tents like the EV2, this tent has a screen door at both front and back entries (with a second nylon door using the usual multi zipper configuration). There are several zippered or velcroed vents with kickstands to maximize ventilation, so it can be used in warmer seasons as well.

    My two complaints are:

    It's a heavy tent. That's a necessary evil due to the use of thicker floor and wall material (so it's not really a drawback).
    My biggest complaint is the unavailability of a footprint. This "Midgard" model is actually the Marmot Thor 2p. The Midgard is the name for tents marketed in Europe. Either Marmot no longer makes the footprint or all stores are sold out of them. This means I'll need to use heavier tarps.

    I'm using this tent for late fall / early winter backcountry backpack camping along the Superior Hiki g Trail and in the Boundary Water Canoe Area in Minnesota

    This tent served me very well during 2 Alaskan gales and I look forward to many more trips with it. It is very weatherproof, comfortable, and very well ventilated for a 4 season tent.
    However it is quite heavy for 2 people and I would not want to have to set it up above treeline in a howling blizzard, although once it was up it would be bombproof. Setup takes at least 10 min solo, about 7-8 min w/2, under ideal conditions. This is too long and complicated for a true 4 season high altitude mountaineering tent, however that's not what I got it for. For 4 season general camping it is perfect. I mostly use it for all-season sea kayaking trips, and it is excellent for that. I really like that you can close it up completely in bad weather, but still have it be open and airy when it is hot. Also if you have the time to stake it out, it can stand up to almost any amount of wind. A great bomber tent at a reasonable price.

    This tent is also called the Thor. Let me tell you as soon as I got it I went into the woods in Flagstaff and put it together. I wish it had a footprint because there are tons of volcanic, sharp rocks you cant clear away with just a shovel. This kept me safe from rodents, snakes, animals and the night long monsoon. It was huge, roomy and made me feel safe. Money well spent. Wish it was camo instead of orange. Campers need to blend into the landscape here.

    I researched many 2-person 4 season tents and while several were excellent, none had as good a price point as this one. I needed the double wall to prevent condensation, and the double doors for flow through ventilation. It's sturdy and not to complicated to set up.

    this is a big strong tent with all the bells and whistles, plenty of ventilation. but it is really heavy, and if you include the thor ground cloth, even more heavy.
    fortunately, where i camp in winter there is plenty of snow, and i do not need a ground cloth on top of snow.
    before you spend on a ground cloth, read this

  • Question “Looking at this tent. Is it factory sealed or taped?”
    Asked on 1/25/2015 11:12:04 AM by Michael from Utah
    • Answer Yes... it is sealed and taped... the floor is goes up about 6 inches on the sides, so there's no seam near the ground... It's an awesome tent!

    • Answer Is original from Marmot, they made the Midgard only for sierra trading post.

    • Answer It is not ultralight if that's your concern, but it is a true 4 season tent that will keep you warm, safe and dry in any inclement weather. That said, for a 4 season tent I think it is ultralight at 8.5 pounds and it's very easy to build (took me around 10 min after one practice). I recommend you purchase the footprint so you can use it with just the fly for a super ultralight setup.

    • Answer I would advise researching the temperatures before deciding, but from what I understand it can get somewhat cold in those regions that time of year. And if snow is a possibility this is the tent I would take. Also if your going to share it with someone you can each carry half, and this is truly a 2 person tent. I'm 5'8" and my son is 5'10" and we're both over 200 pounds, and with gear we sleep comfortable and aren't cramped for room.
      Good luck and hope you enjoy your adventure.

    • Answer Yes you can use them for a minimalist setup. I read some where that it ends up being around 3.5 pounds when done that way

    • Answer I personally don't buy footprints I always use a mid grade sheet of plastic, light weight and cheap. But I don't think you can do what your wanting to do because the attachment points for the poles and the fly are on the tent it's self. As well I can say from personal experience with this tent it is a great cold weather shelter, but even in cool weather I have to use a tent with better air circulation. This is however my new favorite tent because of its vertical walls and I love the vestibule, nice for cooking on a rainy or snowy day.
      Answered on 12/8/2014 3:01:57 PM by Happy Hiker from GSMNP
    • Answer Yes but don't take my word for it since I have not tested that yet. See which states the following:

      The Marmot Thor 2-Person tent Footprint prolongs the life of your Thor tent by protecting its floor from sharp rocks and other abrasives. This footprint also enables you to perform fly-only pitching. Leave the tent body at home, and pitch just the fly over the footprint to create a lightweight shelter that shaves pounds from your pack or works as an emergency rain shelter or sunshade.

      As you can see from the attached image, the footprint has grommets and each strap contains buckles that connect to both the tent body and fly.

    • Answer The fly could be used as a light shelter the polls create a nice resting space. Or try over your hammock, I prefer to live as much in the trees. ENjoy

    • Answer I haven't done it since I just got the tent and footprint, but I did lots of research online and yes, people do pack just the fly and footprint for an ultralight setup.

  • Question “Does the Marmot Thor 2 Footprint fit this tent?”
    Asked on 10/9/2014 5:33:09 PM by Henryville from Wilton, CT
    • Answer Yes... the Thor 2 footprint will work for the Midgard 2 tent.

      I called marmot and asked a rep about it.

      The lady I spoke with said that the Midgard and the Thor tents are the same tent just named different based on the type of dealer they went to. (or at least that was my understanding)

      I got one of these tents the other week (sweet deals here) and need a foot print as well... Nice tent I used it on a trip to hike up Mt Elbert the other weekend and got 4" of snow over night. Stayed warm and the ventilation prevented excessive condensation on the inside of the tent.

    • Answer Yes it does. This is a great tent that I think is an overseas version of the thor because its identical in every way, only difference is the name on the front of the tent.
