A trimmed-down version of the best-selling Tungsten tent, the Marmot Tungsten UL 1P maximizes livability while keeping weight (2 lbs, 2.2 oz) at a place that caters to solo backpackers.
A D-shaped door provides easy access to the 20 square foot interior. A vestibule provides 8.75 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. 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 DAC Pressfit 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. The custom-fit Marmot Tungsten UL 1P Footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water.
