1. The tent is well made and the DAC poles appear to be strong enough to withstand high winds.
2. There are two different tent pegs shipped with the tent. This is a pleasant surprise: I was expecting to have to buy snow p... Read More
Reviewed by Goesseck from Portland on Saturday, August 26, 2017This tent is awesome, 5 stars all the way. We had a fair amount of wind in over 10,000 foot elevation and the Midgard stood strong! There is plenty of space inside for two people and setting it up was easy.
Reviewed by Inua from Massachusetts on Monday, July 17, 2017I bought this tent to go to Oceti Sakowin Camp in late November, on the high plains of North Dakota. I set it up to make sure I could navigate the process effectively- and ended up setting this up in the dark just fine. I did not use all of the guy lines (horses were checking me out) and woke up to snow the next day.
I found this tent to be perfect for myself, and all of my gear. I can't imagine two people. There is plenty of features that make this a comfortable little home- stowaway pockets and ventilation. I warmed the tent each night for 10-15 minutes with a little candle (not recommended for most people!) and had little condensation frost in the morning inside the tent. I could have played with the ventilation a little more prevent this from happening. The vestibules were ample, but made for a low crawl to get in and out. Also pretty heavy considering the size, but to be expected.
A good purchase!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mene the Alpinist from NYC on Sunday, June 4, 2017This tent is designed for serious conditions. I've use it under heavy rain and winds up to 70 km per hour and it feels great. I love it, you should buy it if your looking for a great 4 seasons tent.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by awlareau from Boulder, CO on Wednesday, March 22, 2017This is my first 4 season tent, and I couldn't be happier! Myself (180lbs 5'11") and my gf (130lbs 5'7") fit comfortably inside with most of our gear :). The vestibule is good enough for the stuff that won't fit inside. Real good quality materials. Not difficult to set up after a couple of times (do at home first). Some advice: put the two cross poles in through the sleeves first then once both are through put them through the grommets of the tent then do the other poles in whatever order you like. Tons of guy points and also internal guy system if really needed. Seems like so many guy points it's overkill haha. Had used some of the guy points in 40mph gusts and the tent didn't even budge at all. Only got down to about 23 degrees F with wind chills around 10, but no breeze inside the tent and with the two side windows cracked a tad for ventilation there was zero condensation on the walls just a little in the corners on the ground probably due to the proximity to the cold snow underneath. This tent is bombproof and with that comes size and weight, but I highly recommend it for anyone doing any serious winter camping even summit camping 14ers I'd feel safe in it.
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
Surprisingly, the straps on the secondary poles - the ones that would pull the lower part of the poles - are not adjustable. Is this normal?
Mine are always slack and seem to have no purpose. Am I missing something here ?
BTW: are there any detailed instructions about this tent anywhere? The assembly instructions on the tent pouch are very basic.
“Since a footprint for this tent is no longer available, can someone please provide the dimensions of the footprint so those of us late to this party can make our own?”
I'v ordered Thor 2 footprints just to have it rejected later because they're not available anymore. You can look at the dimensions for a Thor 2 and they are supposed to be the same.
I decided to buy a Thor 3 footprint since the length is the same, and the width is about 12 inches wider. I am going to set it all up and hopefully the footprint straps will line up with the the poles and I'm going to double up the extra on the sides and sew them to match the tent. If not I'll have a footprint that is the right length and that will be a start.
UPDATE 20170306 Received a Thor 2P footprint from Marmot Warranty Service today. They are back in stock!
“What is the substance it contains that could possibly cause reproductive harm?
Where is it found - in the tent body fabric, the fly, the poles?”
The specific reasons for the warning are not given on the product. We apologize for the inconvenience.
I am just guessing, but I would say it is the polyurethane coating or the aluminum. With the Cal. regs. most metals and a lot of the fabric coatings could over a long period of exposure cause something. I see more and more companies covering themselves with a warning.
From what I have found out they are the same.
“Can you leave behind the three cross poles and the additional pole for the vestibule to cut out weight on backpacking trips that wouldn't require a 4-season bag? I understand that there'd be some sagging and whatnot, but it seems like some poles could be eliminated to free up some space n weight on long treks. ”
This is able to stand with just the use of the corner cross poles.
