Lightweight design and maximum livability make the Marmot Tungsten 2P 3-season backpacking tent a great option for 2-person outings. An innovative structure maximizes interior space while keeping packed weight to just under 5 pounds.
Easily accessed on either side by dual D-shaped doors the interior of the tent offers 32 square feet of floor space. A front vestibule provides 9.8 square feet of weather-protected external storage space and a smaller vestibule over the second door offers an additional 7.8 square feet of protection. 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
- Nice tent but a little too cozy
Likes: Easy set-up especially with the color-coded tabs; the "bent-knee" pole design adds more wall space, great colors; solid construction.
Dislikes: The tapered floor design makes the tent feel a bit claustrophobic.
- Pretty good tent
Likes: This tent has a lot of usable room for tent that still will fit it pretty small spaces.
Used it two night in cold rain and it didn't leak so that's good.
It was fairly easy to setup once I remembered that it's not a rectangle.
Great tent for the money.
Dislikes: One bad thing:
The hub which holds the poles together at the center came apart. I was able to put it back together however, special attention was needed to ensure it wouldn't happen again. After the poles were secured with the tent holding tension on them it was not a problem.
- Excellent tent
Likes: Firts camping trip with this thent was under rain for around 10 hours not a single drop made it inside, truly waterproof.
Tent for 2 persons or one big guy and all his stuffs inside, I kept everything inside for protection form the rain and still had enough space to sleep.
Only kept my boots outside under the rainfly "extension" they were perfectly dry the next day.
Easy to assemble and disassembly , compact design, it was able to go back to the original bag without problems.
Dislikes: Came with 6 stakes, 4 for the cornes and 2 more for the tent "doors", but the tent have 2 more strings for stacking the rainfly left and right. It would be nice to have those 2 already included.
- Feature rich, reliable, excellent value for $, but not light
Likes: Feature rich, reliable, plenty of space, quick set up, quality tent.
Dislikes: Due to the weight, this tent would be best for car camping, or splitting the weight between two packs if you have a trail partner. For the price though, it's an excellent value, and you can't expect the same featherweight quality as a $500 UL tent.
- Great, durable tent
Likes: Durable, easy setup, lots of interior space
Dislikes: Heavy and takes up a lot of pack space.
- great tent
Likes: Marmot Tungsten 2p great tent for family camping: spacious, two entrances, durable fabric, inexpensive.
Dislikes: the volume in the carrying case
- awesome tent
Likes: love this tent. went with backpacking with the women and the tent was light enough for me to carry. it's an awesome roomy tent for two people and love the design of it. especially the pockets for glasses or whatever.
Dislikes: didn't have any dislikes.
- Great Tent for car camping and overnight hikes.
Likes: Durable. Quality of materials are very good. i don't plan to carry this on any backpacking trips, its little heavy. But its an excellent car camping tent or quick overnight hikes. I'm using this tent for our boy scouting trips at campgrounds where weight is not a issue. So far the perfect tent for this application.
Dislikes: none. other than weight. but its also 1/2 the price of an ultralight tent
- Fantastic lightweight tent
Likes: Super easy to set up, and I LOVE that it comes with the footprint included. I know it's not ultralight, but it's light enough for me for a 4-day 50-mile hike. It's roomy for one, probably cozy for two, but so far it's just been me and my pack. Highly recommend this tent!
Dislikes: Needs more stakes
- Awesome tent for the price
Likes: Great value with footprint included, not ultralight but certainly light enough for backpacking. Pretty roomy for a two person tent, comfortably sleeps 2 adults with a medium sized dog. Super easy to set up and very stable in wind when fully staked out.
Dislikes: doesn't come with enough stakes to fully guy out tent so subtracted one star.
