Impressive construction, a solid tent

Reviewed by Jottoh from SLC, UT on Saturday, December 27, 2014
I have owned a few high-end tents before and except for weight, NONE of them were better than this Ajax 3 from Marmot. The tent is long enough for a 6 footer, roomy enough for two and their stuff (three in a pinch I guess) and comes with awesome pegs and poles, both being over-engineered a bit. Once set up it is very sturdy for a basic "two cross" pole design and after the fly and tie-outs added, its a solid 3 season tent. Were it not for all the wonderful netting, this would easily be a four season model yet I believe the trade-off is well worth it for me as I do not camp in the wintertime. Its easily set up, the clips fit the poles exactly correct, the zippers slide easily and do not hang up. Their are d-rings for a gear loft yet it does not come with nor does it have a ground (footprint) sheet. It does however include cordage for the four corner tie-outs on the fly. This tent is a bargain at full price so if you need a terrific tent and find it on sale don't hesitate to buy!
