Built with the taller camper in mind, the Marmot Argent 4P is a great option for group and family camping outings. Super easy setup and great weather-protection are just two reasons the Argent 4P will be the envy of the campground.
With intuitive, very easy and a stable set up, the Marmot Argent Four Person Tent is great for family outings, car camping or any time you want sprawling comfort in the outdoors. This tent provides a lot of protection and we will go through all the features that makes this tent so great.
The first thing to talk about with any larger tent like this is the pole structure and how stable the tent is. And Marmot is using their 7000 series aluminum Velocity HD poles. They are very thick poles. They are going to provide a lot of stability for this tent. And the set up they have here is very intuitive. It is color coded so you have got two poles on the top that cross over each other into grommets on the bottom of the tent body. And they end right here. So these are orange poles. There is a series of sleeves and clips. So with a larger tent like this, these sleeves are going to provide a lot of stability. With clips you don’t want to put too much force on each of those clips. So while clips are a little bit easier to use, sleeves provide a lot of stability.
So then you also have a couple of clips there which make set up easy. The other pole is right here in the front. This provides a really high peak height on this tent and that is a grey pole. So all you have to do is match the grey pole with the grey webbing and the orange poles with the orange webbing.
The tent body is made up of some durable materials as well. The floor is completely waterproof and it is a 68 D polyester material. Up here you have got taffeta material above that. And Marmot has a cantenary cut on the floor of this tent, so that brings the seam of the corner there up off of the ground. And that is going to help with rain water not coming in through that seam. So that is an intentional cut on the floor. And then you also have that taffeta material in the back of the tent. That is going to provide a little bit more privacy in the tent and then you also have really breathable mesh. So this is meant for summer outings or warmer temperatures. It is a three season tent. You have a lot of breathability here in the mesh.
This tent offers a lot of livability starting with this oversized D shape door, really easy access in and out of the tent. So when you need to throw your gear in there, it is really easy. And just going in and out of the tent is super easy with this big door.
Marmot also uses their jingle free zipper pulls. So if you do have wind those aren’t going to be jingling around to bother you at night.
Just open the big D shaped door and see how much livability inside this tent.
This tent is built with the family camper, car camper in mind, sprawling room inside this tent. The floor dimensions here: 97 by 85 inches and the peak height here is 65 inches. So you can walk around in this tent. I am about five feet six inches and I feel really comfort-able in here, really easy in and out of the tent. You do have some pockets and organization in here. You have a pocket on either side of the door. There is two pockets here in the back. And it is something I really like about this tent where you do have this taffeta material here to give a little bit more protection from the elements and also some more privacy. You have got a nice vent right here. So you can open this vent from the outside and this is going to give you a little bit more cross ventilation. You have a lot of ventilation with the mesh here in this tent, but that is just going to give you a nice cross breeze. On a nice day like today, you have the door open and just have a lot of breathability, a very, very comfortable tent.
We have got the rain fly on the tent and you have a lot of protection with this rain fly. It is not a full coverage rain fly, meaning that the back side of this tent the rain fly just comes down half way over the body of the tent. But you do have that taffeta material on the tent body that is going to protect you from rain and nasty weather.
Here on the front you have a full vestibule. This is a 16 square foot vestibule. So you have got a lot of space here for gear. I can see you being able to set up a little camp chair in this area. So you have got some big area here in the vestibule. And the material here is a durable 68 D polyester taffeta, completely waterproof, completely seam taped. And the zipper is right in the front here. We have this side of the vestibule rolled back just to show the size. So you have a nice storm flap in front of that zipper. If the clouds roll in, if you have got some rain, this is definitely going to give you the protection that you need. And you have ventilation here with the rain fly as well. There is a vent here on the front. You can access that from the inside. You have another vent right over here. And so you have ventilation there above you. But there is also points on the rain fly on the other side of the tent. You can actually stake those out. If you need more ventilation coming up under-neath of the rain fly and through the tent, you can definitely do that and have a lot of ventilation there.
If you have a nice day like today where you don’t need the full coverage of this rain fly, you can roll back this side as well so you have this whole front of the tent open. But then underneath of the rain fly inside the tent you are covered from sun. So this is going to give you a lot of protection in different situations.
If you are in the nastiest of weather, if you have got rain that is kind of coming in side-ways, it is, you know, not going to give you all the protection that you will need, but this being a family camping, car camping style tent, it is going to give you the protection for those outings.
There are reflective guy out points on this tent. We don’t have the guy out points and the lines set up today, because it is not a windy day. We have really nice weather. But there are a lot of additional guy out points on this tent and Marmot doesn’t include the stakes and lines for every single point. But they definitely give you enough stakes and lines to stake this out and to pitch the tent really well.
So if you anticipate needing to use every single additional guy out point, I would suggest bringing along some extra stakes and some extra lines just to batten everything down.
All in all, this is a really great family camping tent. You have got that tall peak height. So you have got sprawling comfort inside. You have protection from the elements with this rain fly and it is really intuitive set up with those color coded poles and the color coded fly. So this is an excellent tent for you next family outing. It is the Marmot Argent Four Person Tent.
