I have always liked high quality tents that offer users value for their money. Above all, the tents I choose for my outdoor activities must be made of the best materials and also have features that I would find quite useful. It is for this reason that I decided to go for Marmot Tungsten 2P. This tent is versatile in some many ways and you don’t have to break your bank account to own one. Overall, it is a produce that is worth every single coin spent.

Features of Marmot Tungsten 2P Tent

As an experienced hiker with years of mountain climbing, I came to realize that some of the results we get from outdoor activities depend on 2 things; one, is how well we are prepared, and second, is the gear we have and tent we use. As seasoned climber, I would advise that you go for nothing but the best of tents. It will not only save you money, but make you as comfortable as possible. For this reason, I recommend this tent because it came in handy in my last wild adventures. If you are looking for tents with versatile features, then definitely this one is your right choice.

I was proud that my brother and I had more than enough space with this tent and we could move around without knocking items over. It comes with an optimizing structure that makes living or rather camping a much more enjoyable experience.

The free standing design makes it even easier to pitch tent, and we were done within a very short time. As such, even if you are a novice, the easy to follow guidelines will save you time.

The tent offers users seam taped catenary-cut floor that is made of equally high quality material. This means that you can use it for several camping activities without worrying about wear and tear. In as much as I have the opportunity to use this tent on several occasions, I have not noticed any extreme signs of it being worn out. Additionally, with the strategic clips placement you are guaranteed of better interior space. Remember, space is one of the most important things that you should always consider when choosing a tent for your use. In this case, Marmot Tungsten 2P does not fall short of providing adequate space.

It is equally important to note that movement in and out of the tent is catered for by the 2 D-shaped doors. You will never at any time struggle with entry and exit. If you happen to choose a much smaller tent with only one door, your movements will be restricted. And so, I would advise you to be go for products that will serve you better. It can get pretty cold out there but with Marmot Tungsten 2P you have an opportunity to stay warm because of the versatility of material used to make it.

Some finer details you should know

It goes without saying that a great tent will help you stay comfortable in the wild - and a mistake on tent choice can be suicidal. I remember camping on a mountain summit and wind blew our tent down the trail. I lost a good number of things including some of the tents accessories. You can imagine how this can be stressful. Ever since, I have always been keen on the finer details of every tent-lest I end up making the mistake of choosing a wrong one.

To begin with, this tent offers users a tent floor area of about 32 sq ft, and comes with tent pole data of 3/DAC fit 9.00mm. Its dimensions of 41x54x88’’ is ideal for a 2 person tent, while the vestibule area of 9.8sq ft make it a better choice for those who desire to stay organized. The tent fly fabric-68d polyester taffeta is strong enough to withstand some of the harsh elements you can come across in the wild. The Marmot Tungsten 2P weighs an average of 2400g and can be carried around without the hiker feeling like he’s carrying a burden. Last but not least, with a peak height of 41 inches you will love every bit of the inside space.

The best thing is that this tent includes a footprint which is always a plus for every camper. Nevertheless, some people have complained that one part of the rain fly is sewn loosely. In my case, I did not experience this so I thought that could be one isolated case.

In a nut shell, I can recommend this tent for both seasoned and new hikers who are looking for something versatile for their outdoor activities. Simple but elegant design-worth every dollar you spend.
