The ultralight Marmot Force 1P backpacking tent offers surprising roominess for a solo tent and easy set-up. With a good balance of weight, weather and bug protection, the freestanding Force 1P is a perfect trail companion.
The Force 1P features 4 strong and ultralight DAC NFL eco-friendly aluminum poles, which help keep packed weight to a minimum and provide solid support. Integrated color-coded, easy-pitch clips allow the body of the Force 1P to attach quickly, easily and securely to the poles, and 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.
A single D-shaped door allows access to the 21 square feet of interior space in the Force 1P, and the 3 square feet of external vestibule space can stow a pack and boots from wet weather. Marmot’s Volume Optimizing structure with extended head and foot zones maximizes livable space within the Force 1P. The mesh walls allow for plenty of ventilation in hot or humid weather and also help to combat condensation when the temperature is cooler. The weatherproof floor with Twin Tip design that increases durability and saves weight works together with the rain fly to protect the interior of the Force 1P from the elements. Both the floor and fly are seam taped. Additionally, the catenary cut floor helps to keep the side seams of the Force 1P tent away from the ground in wet weather. Reflective guyout points can be staked out in windy conditions and allow you to more easily find your tent in the dark. Further features found in the Force 1P include jingle-free nylon zipper pulls, interior pockets for organization of small gear and a lamp shade pocket meant to hold your headlamp and provide ambient interior lighting.
A compatible, custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the Marmot Force 1P backpacking tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water. For those backpackers who want to further reduce packed weight, the rain fly of the Force 1P can be used with just the footprint and poles in a “bare bones” setup to serve as a minimalist, ultra-lightweight shelter.
