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

    Midgard P2 Tent
    Heavy duty all around! built to handle snow wind and rain (when fully guyed out). The floor is heavier duty than my other 4 tents. I set it up in my yard the day before a very heavy, wet spring snow. When I shoveled the walks it was the heaviest, wettest snow I had ever seen in Denver CO. Five inches of that snow pushed the rain-fly down a little but the tent still stood proud and was dry inside.
    My personal experience is that the number of people a manufacture says a tent should house must be divided by two! So I find the Midgard to be a perfect one-person tent. It is tight for 2 people.
    The 10 stakes that are required for the tent floor plus 2 more for the front and 1 for the rear vestibules are provided as the minimum number to erect the tent. An additional 16 stakes (not provided by Marmot) are required to fully guy out the fly. Marmot only provides 4 additional guy stakes and they are throwaway aluminum wire stakes, totally inadequate for the task.
    In warm weather you could use the tent without the rain-fly but only if no moisture is expected because the fabric above the floor is not at all water resistant!
    This is a heavy tent that is large to pack which will put off some backpackers. Since I camp from of a 17 foot sea kayak, the weight and size of the Midgard P2 is not a big concern. These tents are on closeout and may not be available for long, better get one soon.

    I bought this tent to use when conditions are too harsh for my lightweight 3-season tent. I took it out last weekend for a test.
    It's easy to set up--I could do it myself (a 60+ female who is not particularly athletic) after practicing once at home.
    It's a comfortable size for 2 people (5'6" and 6' tall).
    It's very well made--the seams are quite sturdy. The wind came up during the night and it felt very solid.
    The tri-lobed stakes that came with the tent are much stronger than the aluminum hooks I used on previous tents.
    It wasn't particularly cold out but it was quite easy to adjust the ventilation inside the tent. There are two doors with adjustable screen openings plus two roof vents. The two roof vents correspond to vents in the fly that can be adjusted from the inside.
    It's a bit heavy for me to carry as a backpacking tent, but split between 2 people it wouldn't be bad.
    I wasn't able to find a footprint for this tent (aka the Marmot Thor 2P). I wrote to Marmot and they're not making them but sent me a link on how to make a footprint out of tyvek. While I was thinking about this, I found a smoking' deal on a footprint for a Thor 3P, so I bought it. It's about 18" wider than the 2P but I just tuck the excess under the tent. Other than the extra width, the configuration of the straps appears to be the same as the 2P.
    This tent was a great buy at STP and I expect that I will be using it for a long time!

    When buying a winter tent you have to make a choice between lightweight single-wall tents that don't breath well and the standard double tent and fly set up found on most 3-season tents. Having made the decision to go double wall this tent is fantastic.

    First off the Midgard 2 is a similar weight to competing double-wall winter tents if it seems to heavy try a single wall or if conditions are mild stick with a 3-season. Split up the weight with your companion (2-person tent) and it packs down fine.

    The tent itself is built to withstand just about anything with 6 poles in total, loads of guy-line points, and sturdy sleeves for the poles. We tested it in the Adirondack Mountains around 20F, 20-40mph winds, and 4-6" of snow overnight. It performed beautifully and the ventilation was superb. There was a thin film of ice on the inside of the fly which could expected but the tent itself was great. Perhaps my favorite feature is the ability to adjust the ventilation at the top of the tent from inside during a storm. There was also plenty of space for my 5'10" frame along with my 5'8" wife plus some gear. We had extra room at our feet and a couple inches to each side in width.

    Very well thought out tent. Used one night sub freezing so far. No/minimal condensation, venting was quite adequate with 1 person. Pushing heavy for a backpacking tent, but doable. This is a situation where an extra pound may be a worthy compromise for the quality of the shelter. No doubt it would make a great base camp tent. Pretty easy setup. A lot of poles, though: 6. With that said, only 2 of them are critical for the structure (basically a dome tent). 3 of them pull the walls outward and support the fly. In a pinch you could probably do without 2 of them. And without the fly, it's still a pretty nice tent (I guess as long as there is minimal precip)!
    Overall a great value for the cost. If you asked me to lay out $600 for a Thor, still worthy but well, I dunno. But for $3-400 at STP, depending on your discount, it's a no-brainer if you want a versatile, sturdy, true 4-season tent.

    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

    • 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.

    • Answer Yes but don't take my word for it since I have not tested that yet. See http://www.backcountry.com/marmot-thor-2-person-tent-footprint 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.
