The Marmot Tungsten 4P backpacking tent utilizes an architectural design that maximizes livability for 3-season camping or backpacking.
Easily accessed on either side by dual D-shaped doors the interior of the tent offers 53 square feet of floor space. A front vestibule provides 11 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.

- Pleased with this tent - Recommended
Likes: Set up is very easy, was able to complete the set up in about 10 minutes alone. The included footprint is a nice touch, if for no other reason that keeping sap and other items off the tent floor.
The prebend in the poles does provide a much more vertical wall at the floor of the tent, making it much more comfortable for sleeping since your head doesn't get 'wedged' where the walls meet the floors. Doors are nice and wide for easy comings and goings.
The rain fly is also very easy to set up with quick clips and small fabric tabs to assist with alignment.
The two vestibules are of good size for storing boots and are about of equal volume. Both vestibules also have wide doors that can be buttoned open to allow for ventilation.
Dislikes: I only have a couple of minor negatives:
The main tent poles are attached to one another at the top of the tent; therefore, you are not able to attach one pole at a time, so it adds a little complexity to the set up, especially when there is only one person.
Also, the mesh fabric on one side of the tent is joined to the floor tub, therefore, it is possible that in heavy rains, there may be some splash back into the tent under the rain fly. Having said that, I have not yet experienced any splash back, but it is something I feel should be noted.
Finally, the footprint does not extend under the vestibules, so items placed there will be on the ground; as such, the storage provided may be limited in rainy conditions.
Likes: I like that this tent is spacious, will easily sleep 3 large adults or 4 smaller adults. Poles are nice and sturdy. Tent set up and took down like a charm. Well constructed and great value.
Dislikes: None that I can think of. Everything worked wonderfully.
