Lightweight design and maximum livability make the Marmot Tungsten 2P backpacking tent a great option for 3-season 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 Tungsten 2P offers 32 square feet of floor space. The unique, pre-bent "knees" of the Tungsten 2P's DAC Pressfit aluminum poles pull the tent body taut, avoiding the unusable corners frequently found inside tents and maximizing the livability of the interior of the Tungsten 2P. Employing integrated color-coded clips, the body of the Tungsten 2P 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.
A front vestibule provides 9.8 square feet of weather-protected storage space and a smaller vestibule over the second door offers an additional 5.2 square feet of protection. Extensive mesh on the walls and ceiling of the Tungsten 2P ensures excellent ventilation and keeps condensation to a minimum. Both the fully weatherproof rain fly and floor are seam sealed, and the catenary cut design of the floor keeps the edges of the tent away from the ground in wet weather. Additional features found in the Tungsten 2P include jingle-free nylon zipper pulls, interior pockets for organization of small gear and a lamp shade pocket meant to hold a headlamp and provide ambient interior lighting.
Each Marmot Tungsten 2P backpacking tent includes a compatible, custom-fit footprint that can be used to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great backpacking tent for price
Likes: for $150 it compresses down into my sleeping bag compartment in my osprey kestrel 48 pack
Dislikes: couldnt get the green one cause they were out of stock :(
- Great Tent
Likes: Easy to set up
Made from high quality materials
Comes with a footprint, which saves the bottom of the tent
- Incredibly easy, great design
Likes: Seems to go up without any effort at all — the whole design is very well thought out. The extra bend in the poles is minimal enough so that when the poles are broken down they still pack 'flat' but are a really nice touch to increase the interior area of the tent. This might be minor for some, but the colors used in the tent design were really nice — down to the stakes!
