A unique pole architecture and weight-saving design allow the semi-freestanding Marmot Superalloy 2P backpacking tent to weigh in at just over 2 pounds! Despite its lightweight construction, the tent still provides the convenience of dual doors and vestibules.
Measuring 87" x 50", the tent provides 27.8 square feet of internal space. Vestibules in front of each of the side doors combine to offer over 13 square feet of sheltered external storage space. A lamp shade pocket meant to hold a headlamp (not included) can provide ambient interior lighting.
Two lightweight DAC aluminum poles provide the tent with structure and help to increase the verticality of the sidewalls to maximize internal space and elbow room. The tent is semi-freestanding and does require staking (stakes included) for a properly taut pitch. Employing integrated color-coded clips, the tent body attaches quickly, easily, and securely to the poles.
Extensive mesh on the walls and ceiling ensures 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.
