Lightweight design and maximum livability make the Marmot Tungsten 1P tent a great option for 3-season solo backpacking. An innovative structure maximizes interior space while keeping packed weight to just 3.5 pounds.
Easily accessed through a large D-shaped door the interior of the tent offers 20 square feet of floor space. A vestibule provides 8.75 square feet of weather-protected external storage space. Interior pockets provide places to store gear to free up floor space and a lamp shade pocket meant to hold a headlamp (not included) can provide ambient interior lighting.
The unique pre-bent "knees" of the tent's HD Velocity 7000 Series aluminum poles pull the tent body taut avoiding the unusable corners frequently found inside tents and maximizing livability. Employing integrated color-coded clips the tent body 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.
Extensive mesh on the walls and ceiling ensure excellent ventilation and keeps condensation to a minimum. Both the fully weatherproof rain fly and floor are seam sealed and the catenary cut of the floor keeps the edges of the tent away from the ground in wet weather. A compatible custom-fit footprint is included to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects mud and ground water.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great Shelter!
Likes: For a one person tent this is a fantastic piece of gear. I used it in Utah for a camping trip. It was my first time using a 1 person versus a 3 person tent and it accommodated my Thermarest Mondoking nicely. The vestibule housed gear well and kept items dry from nightly condensation. It packs down relatively small and though not the lightest 1p tent it isn't the heaviest either.
- Perfect design, but did not do well in humidity.
Likes: Free standing. Seemed durable. Roominess. Headroom.
Dislikes: Did not handle condensation well. Even with the top vent open, and the top zipper on the vestibule unzipped about 8 inches, I woke with the right side and foot box of my sleeping bag damp from condensation. The fly was fully staked. This is a narrow tent, so not touching the side is virtually impossible.
- if you prefer durability over weight, this is the tent for you
Likes: very durable, and simple construction
comes with footprint
best beater/car camping tent for the money
Dislikes: vestibule is smaller than it seems
not enough room for 1 person and a backpack
quite heavy for a backpacking tent
- Handy little solo tent
Likes: Tall ceiling, can sit upright inside. Easy to pitch, tent clips on and is setup in just a few minutes. Good size vestibule for a solo tent.
Dislikes: Getting rainfly on "just right" is a a bit tricky. Door is a little small, but not too bad.
- Great multi-use one-person tent
Likes: Ease of set-up, break-down & pack-up. Perfect size for me (5'6") and some essentials in the tent. Extra space in vestibule. Just enough interior pockets/hooks. Did well in wind and rain. Worked perfectly for car camping road trip, looking forward to testing it out for backpacking.
Dislikes: Pole ends do not hold in corner tabs until fully set up, don't hold well in footprint at all.
- Lightweight and comfortable
Likes: Height allows for changing clothes
- Great tent!
Likes: This is one piece I was reluctant to order. I usually use a cheap WalMart tent and call it good enough. Don't want to add more weight than I need so often just trek and sleep under the stars. But for a 4 day trip I was convinced by my fellow trekkers that this was a necessity due to the somewhat unpredictable weather in the elevations of Yosemite. I was super happy with how small and light this tent is...way better then my cheapie. The color coordinating makes it easy to set up. Didn't rain while we were out there, but I see no reason why it shouldn't perform as expected. Material feels to be good quality. The built in pouch and diffuser to use head lamp as a tent light is a nice touch. Found myself using it more than expected. Add in the included footprint that others sell separate and this turns into a great value, especially when on sale.
Dislikes: None. Very highly recommend.
- Great tent for the money
Likes: Quality brand tent that included foot print. Great product for the money
Dislikes: Little heavier than what I expected, but still very manageable to hike with.
