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
- 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.
- Great Quality & Easy to set up!
Likes: Its a well designed and roomy tent for the footprint. Only two poles and is very rigid even without additional tie-outs. Love this tent.
Dislikes: May be a little heavy for a single backpacker, but the weight can be split up easily between two.
- This is a great tent. Light with aluminum poles. Great quality. I have used it in cold conditions, about 20 degrees, and it retains the heat well. Its a small tent, but fits me and by pack well enough.
Likes: quality/price ratio
- Excellent 2person sleeper!
Likes: I like just about everything about this tent. It takes 2 minutes at most to pitch, and sleeps 2 comfortably. My first trip out with this tent, it rained for 9 hours, and the tungsten performed like a champ! I’m a pretty big guy. 6’1-215 and I was able to share the space with one of my buddies comfortably. Easy the pitch, and breaking camp was a breeze!
Dislikes: My only minor complaint is that it did not come with stakes for the guy lines. The guy lines seem to be more or less unnecessary given the tent’s low profile, but why give me guy lines and no stakes with which to use them?
- Great purchase!!!
Likes: Ease of use
Comes with footprint
Entry door on both sides
- Would recommend.
Likes: Very easy to set up. Very spacious.
Dislikes: Had to cut off excess material on the fly. No biggie but still was an eye sore.
- Does what expected. Needs better internal storage.
Likes: Used it on 4 day car camping in the desert mountains. (Probably too large for single person backpacking unless wet weather imminent.) It's a little higher at the crown and at the door, a feature which I've come to appreciate as I get older. Seemed stable in periodic winds (West Texas 20-30 mph) but had to add supplemental stakes. First two-door tent I've owned which will no doubt be useful but I haven't used that feature yet.
Dislikes: The gear storage nets inside are awkwardly placed. I prefer one on the wall near the door so I can reach in from the outside to pull out frequently used items. Also, they are only on one side, so you have to orient your head in that direction. (About half the time i end up switching orientation because of a slight slope.) Storage bag for stakes/poles has a loose tie which will no doubt get lost.
- Great Tent, Great Price
Likes: Perfect for two person backpacking if you split the weight
Love the green color
Dislikes: A bit heavy
- great tent
Likes: - 2 doors very convenient for two people;
- simple installation;
- great color.
Dislikes: - weight;
- size in package.
- 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.
