New for 2014! The Marmot Stormlight 3P tent is a durable, lightweight 3-season shelter offering a great mix of features for value-minded backpackers and campers. A roomy interior, two large doors and good ventilation make the Stormlight 3P sure to please on your next backcountry adventure.
Intended to house up to three people, the Stormlight 3P offers 41 square feet of interior space. The full coverage rainfly has two integrated vestibules that provide weather-protected, covered storage space adding up to an additional 15.5 square feet (the larger vestibule is 10 sq ft and the smaller vestibule is 5.5 sq ft). Interior mesh pockets and a gear loft which clips into the ceiling are included with the Stormlight 3P, serving as out-of-the-way storage locations for smaller gear.
Three DAC Pressfit 9.0mm aluminum poles provide the Stormlight 3P with strong support. Integrated color-coded clips allow the body of the Stormlight 3P to securely attach quickly and easily to the poles. The freestanding design enables you to set up the tent and then move it around your chosen campsite to find the optimal rock and root-free position. Reflective highlights in the fabric of the Stormlight 3P make it easy to spot when returning to camp after dark or in low-light conditions.
Mesh panels in the walls and ceilings of the Stormlight 3P allow air to circulate and combat condensation. The weatherproof bathtub style floor with catenary cut combines with the rainfly to protect the interior of the Stormlight 3P from the elements. Even in those instances when weather is uncooperative and leaves you stranded inside the Stormlight 3P, an integrated window in the rainfly allows you to see outside.
A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) is available to further protect the floor of the Marmot Stormlight 3P from sharp objects, mud and ground water. The Stormlight 3P's design offers a bare bones set-up option; if you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the footprint for a tarp-style set-up.
