Product Highlights

Lightweight design and maximum breathability make the Marmot Aura 2P backpacking tent a perfect option for 3-season backpacking. An innovative pole design maximizes interior space while keeping packed weight to just over 4 pounds.

Easily accessed on either side by dual mesh doors, the interior of the Aura 2P offers 31 square feet of floor space. The unique, pre-bent "knees" of the Aura 2P's DAC NSL dual diameter aluminum poles pull the tent body taut, avoiding the unusable corners frequently found inside tents and maximizing the livability of the interior of the Aura 2P. Employing integrated color-coded clips, the body of the Aura 2P attaches quickly, easily and securely to the poles creating a freestanding design that enables you to set up the tent and then move it around your chosen campsite to find the optimal rock-and-root-free position.

Two vestibules provide weather-protected entryways to the interior of the tent and add additional, weather-protected storage space. Extensive mesh on the walls and ceiling of the Aura 2P ensures excellent ventilation and keeps condensation to a minimum. Both the fully weatherproof rain fly and floor are seam sealed and the catenary cut design of the floor keeps the edges of the tent away from the ground in wet weather.

A compatible, custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the Marmot Aura 2P backpacking tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water. For those backpackers who want to further reduce packed weight, the rain fly of the Aura 2P can be used with just the footprint and poles to serve as a minimalist, ultra-lightweight shelter.

    Likes: 1-Mesh net throughout the entire tent!
    2-Easy to set up. Yes its dummy (me) free
    3-Very roomy! If you don't mind the extra lb and slightly longer collapsed dimensions. I rather be comfy than regret it

    Dislikes: could use some compression straps on the cover bag bc its puffy within the bag.
