Marmot Ajax 2 Tent - 2-Person, 3-Season
Closeouts. Dependable and easy to set up, Marmot's Ajax 2 tent minimizes weight by keeping things simple yet highly functional. Mesh panels provide optimal ventilation and a Catenary Cut floor lifts seams off the ground for full waterproof protection in nasty weather.
Reviewed by Warm Fuzzy from Iowa on Sunday, July 9, 2017Love this tent. Two doors and vestibules is great. We have used it for backpacking and its great to have a dry place for 2 packs. Lightweight to carry. Room enough inside for 2 females.
Reviewed by akrafty1 from NC on Monday, June 12, 2017Having used this tent for a while I am really happy with it. Understand going in that it is a compact backpacking tent that is a simple efficient design and you will be happy. It sets up fast and is well designed. The pockets in the mesh are a nice touch. The fly gives fantastic coverage and has great vestibules. The tent is easy to get into and out of and is very comfortable.
I wish more equipment was as efficient as this. no bells or whistles just a great tent at a fantastic price.
I did replace the stakes with MSR stakes and use a generic footprint.
Reviewed by HoneyParker from Florida on Tuesday, February 7, 2017It gets a star for simple set up....I've been a camper for over 50 years and have owned a few tents over the decades. For the life of me, I can't figure out how so many love this tent.
First, it's really small. I'm 5'7"/120lbs and I feel cramped. I can't lay flat without my feet or head touching the end of the tent. Two adults? Can't imagine.
The vestibule doesn't tie down tightly. Only one side (the short side) can be rolled up and secured open to allow you to squeeze into the tent. It's VERY awkward. Granted, when I was younger and more flexible this wouldn't have been such an issue. But I'm still a [...] yogi, and I dread getting in and out of this cocoon.
I've only used this beast in decent weather conditions, so I can't speak of it's hardiness in bad storms. I'm ISO a replacement and plan to donate this to Goodwill.....

Reviewed by Nammers from California on Wednesday, July 6, 2016I have the Titan 2, which as far as I can tell is the exact same tent as the Ajax 2. I've owned it for 6 years and have taken it on countless trips, from desert camping to full winter conditions. I love how easy it is to set up, 2 poles that cross in the middle. You CANNOT mess is up. You can, however, put the rain fly on backwards. The rain fly doors should open in the same direction as the tent doors. You'll get it wrong once or twice and then will have it figured. For most conditions I just bring two stakes for pitching out the vestibules. I have fully staked it out for windy conditions with guy lines and it did great. Despite 6 years of use it's holding up great. I never use a ground cloth and I ditched the stuff sack in favor of just rolling it up. For warm nights leaving off the fly gives a great view of the stars. I cannot recommend this tent highly enough.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rachel from Colorado on Sunday, April 24, 2016I haven't taken it out yet, but setting it up at home it seems great!!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stan from California. on Tuesday, April 19, 2016The tent arrived in a timely manner and I was excited with how easy it set up. Of course it was in the living room but hey, I've been looking forward to a good tent for a while.
I like the opening on both sides, giving the option of accessing gear while having the sleep area undisturbed. Fly went on quickly and interior seemed very roomy.
I'm looking forward to some trips this summer.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Poudre Mike from Timnath, CO on Monday, April 11, 2016Just as described. If you need a footprint for the tent the Big Agnes Scout Plus footprint fits perfectly.
