I recently visited STP in search of a larger tent to replace frustrating-to-assemble Coleman Cabin tent and wonderful 40 year old Sierra Designs 3-person. I was pleased to find the Marmot Odyssey 4 at a considerable discount. With the assistance of my favorite clerk we assembled the tent in the Boise store. The Odyssey is a very impressive tent with a 96"x96" footprint, 59" headroom, and 2 large D-shaped entry openings. This tent could actually sleep 4 people comfortably and is deluxe for 2 and a Chihuahua and grandchild. Very simple and quick to assemble. It is free standing, using 2 Crossed DAC Aluminum poles fed through short roof sleeves for primary support and 2 shorter poles to extend the door openings outward. Materials, seams and construction appear superior and strong. 6 Aluminum stakes hold the corners and sides. 4 stakes provide added stability for the guy-lines. The rain fly creates 2 spacious vestibule areas with plenty of room to store all kinds of gear. No ground cover is included. The Odyssey provides me with an excellent modern replacement for my old and well used tents. I look forward to comfortable car camping and extended stays with it.
