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.
The Marmot Tungsten 2P backpacking tent is available in your choice of color options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great 2p Tent
Likes: Great tent, as expected and described. Easy to put up, packs up small, well designed for a lot of space especially at the "sleeping bag" level. Very large gear space under the fly in the entryways on both sides. Large doors make it easy to enter from either side.
Dislikes: As with all 2 person tents, it's spacious for one and cozy for two.
- Amazing tent
Likes: A great first timers backpacking tent
- great value
It's roomy and a great size for 2.
Didn't pack as small or shave as much weight vs my current 3 man as hoped so returned.
- Great tent. Easy set up and take down. 4 day backpacking trip. 2 thunderstorms. Bone dry throughout both. The vestbules are great storage areas.
Likes: Fast and easy set up/take down. Weather protection.
Dislikes: The footprint does not stay attached to the tent poles, however, even during extreme hard blowing driving rain, there was no water entry.
- Best non-ultra weight tent I've seen
Likes: I posted a huge review on Marmot's site. Here are a few highlights:
1) Remarkably can be deployed in the rain by setting up pole frame on footprint, deploying the fly, then working under the fly with the tent body.
2) Super well made, and attention to detail, the little red tabs to line up fly and tent body, internal cloths line attachment points.
3) Super well ventilated, upper vent on one side, lower pull tab on tent opposite side. Vent can be deployed from inside the tent - amazing.
Otherwise, well sewn, and just a great "normal weight" 2p tent. Not seen anything better. IMO Marmot is the new TNF.
Dislikes: Came with 4 guy lines for the fly but no stakes for them. I used 6 included stakes for the 4 corners + 2 vestibules. So, ordered 4 el-cheapo stakes from Walmart.
Haven't figured out which is the bigger vestibule aka "front door." Will have to set up again :)
Personal opinions: Too heavy IMO for long miles of solo backpacking. But for 2 people, you'd have about 2.5 lbs each for a shelter that's nicer than the sil-nylon thing I use. Superb tent for river trips, motorcycle, car camping, or base camp where you'd do peak bagging from camp.
- Awesome tent
Likes: Easy to set up
Very sturdy and all seams are intact
long and roomy
Dislikes: would prefer lighter tent stakes
- Overall great backpacking tent, somehow the 2P tents are always smaller than expected
Likes: This a great backpacking tent for the price. It is fairly lightweight (there are much lighter and smaller tents when packed) and easy to set up. It took us no longer than 5 minutes to set up this tent on the first try. That a footprint is included is a huge plus, so I didn't have to track down one of the proper size. This tent utilizes two poles in a combined one pole system which makes it very easy to set up.
My friend and I both purchased this tent at the same time and we used it in Northern MN on a night that reached to about 32F with snow and sleet in the morning, and we were certainly dry in the morning, though it was crisp! I would be comfortable taking it again into these conditions (with a good sleeping bag/pad and gear), but I would not take it below 32F considering it is a 3-season tent, but I'm still happy that it has that ability. We fit our tents back in the stuff sacks with freezing snow and near-frostbitten hands, so that was a relief.
Dislikes: I'm always surprised that a tent like this is considered a 2P tent, but then I remember that it is a backpacking tent. it's not suppose to be luxuriously spacious. It is however, pretty spacious for one person, which is how I intend to use it. The one downside is that the tent isn't very long—I am only 5'6 and i wasn't able to put my backpack at the foot of my sleeping bag/pad, so it was on the side next to me, which felt odd. I would only share this tent with a significant other. My friend has the same tent, is 6', and I know he hasn't had any complaints.
- performed very well so far
Likes: The amount of space, weight and ease of setup after a tiring hike as well the vestibule space. I am very pleased so far.
