Used the tent this weekend for the first time. Very easy to set-up. Very packable for an adventure motorcycle. Weather was good, so I don't know about ability in the rain, but all of the tent seams appear to be of high quality.

There is no footprint; I used a cheap 8x10 tarp. The short side of t... Read More

    Tent goes up quickly and easily. No problems. Haven't put it to outdoor use, yet, however. We like the two-door configuration of this tent. We chose the 3p version in order to accommodate two terra hiker lightweight sleeping cots, which it does perfectly.

    I used this in July and it worked fine. However, using itnfor a raining camping trip over Labour Day weekend proved difficult. The tent doesn't come with a foot print so we added a tent. 12+ hours of rain was more than this tent could handle. The vestibles were convient to have, but made getting in/out of the tent very awkward (even more so in the rain). On the bright side, it was high enough for 2 adults, 2 dogs, and our gear. In terms of weight, we've only uses it for car camping at this time.

    Tent is roomy, light and packable, easy to set up, the rain fly seems to provide excellent coverage. Entry on each side. I am looking forward to field testing it and seeing how the ventilation is.

    Bought this tent in preparation for a camping trip in August, but have already used it twice, and love it. Easy up, easy to attach rain fly and to cinch up tight. With the everyday/evening rains, it has kept me dry and happy. I love it. Light weight, easy to pack up. No muss no fuss! I'm a happy camper.

    • Each pole assembly consists of 8 segments of about 22" that are held together by an internal elastic band. The segments fit end to end to create a pole of approximately 165" total length. All it takes are these two assemblies crossing at the mid point to set the tent up. It's extremely easy and we love it.

    • The poles break down into 8 pieces approximately 22" each.

    • The floor is waterproof but I ordered a footprint from gofastlite to protect the bottom from rocks, twigs, etc.

    • According to information listed under the product Overview, this item has a fully waterproof floor with taped seams lifted off the ground.

    • No, most tents have "bathtub floors" where the seams rise off the ground to protect the floor from water. The measurements listed on tents are frequently seam to seam. This is the case with this tent, as it's not really 63" across unless the bathtub floor were laid flat. I measured, and I forget what it was exactly, but the ground width is less than 63.
      That said, it's a super roomy two person tent and a pretty great deal. (Wide and long sleeping mats are generally 25" wide, more standard backcountry mats are 20" wide. Extra extra extra wide mats are 30" wide, so you would easily be able to fit two of any of these in the tent, and there is ample vestibule room for packs and gear, as well as room inside the tent for gear/clothing making a mess etc.)

    • I use this as a 1 person camp tent and wouldn't call it "roomy". You might also want to note that you have to really bend over to get in and out with the extra vestibule in front of you. I have the tent packed up presently but will be using it in a few weeks to go camping. I really enjoy it but wish I had paid more attention to the height inside and the opening for getting in and out. I do enjoy it and wouldn't have any other tent right now. I use a single air mattress that fits inside with not much room for other stuff. You might want to rethink using it as a roomy 2 person tent, unless we are talking about a different model tent.

    • I don't have the tent handy to measure the dimensions, but like you, I bought this tent intending it to be a roomy 2 person tent. I used it several times this past summer (me at 6'4" with my son who is 5'9") and it did suffice. We kept out backpacks outside under the vestibules. I was impressed with the tent but don't have much experience. I was hoping it might fit a third person too next year (another one of my boys who might be around 5' then), but it might be too snug. We'll see.

    • I measured about the same - 86" x 63". I would consider it roomy. Have only used it for 2 people so far on several backpacking and several camping trips and have had plenty of room to set up bedrolls and store our stuff/backpacks inside with us. Will be using it for 3 people at the end of the month.

    • the "bathtub" floor is solid, but, as in the picture, the whole tent upper is mosquito netting. It comes with a waterproof rain fly. If the weather is nice, its absolutely super to sleep without the rain fly and see the stars. We love ours.

    • Not the entire tent. Id say it's 90% mosquito netting, that's really durible and flexible - to a certain extent ..obv. the bottom is a different material. Which is also strong and durible. Slept in snow in Yosemite a few weeks ago (north dome) and it was great.

    • It is true to the picture. The entire top portion is a mosquito netting and the bottom is a waterproof solid material. Then there is the rain fly. I hope this answers your question.

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.
