A Very Nice Tent!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Campin'4Fun from California Central Coast on Tuesday, April 5, 2016
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!
