A trimmed-down version of the best-selling Tungsten tent, the Marmot Tungsten UL 2P maximizes livability while keeping weight (2 lbs, 14.9 oz) at a place that caters to backpackers.


A trimmed-down version of the best-selling Tungsten tent, the Marmot Tungsten UL 2P maximizes livability while keeping weight (2 lbs, 14.9 oz) at a place that caters to backpackers.

Easily accessed on either side by dual D-shaped doors, the interior of the tent offers 32 square feet of floor space. A front vestibule provides 9.8 square feet of weather-protected external storage space and a smaller vestibule over the second door offers an additional 5.2 square feet of protection. 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 2P Footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water.

  • Zone pre-bend construction creates vertical walls for roomier sleeping area and greater head room
  • Free-standing design with two D-shaped doors and two vestibules for gear storage
  • Rain-shield polyester flysheet doesn't stretch and sag when wet and resists damage from
  • UV Lampshade pocket securely holds your headlamp to provide ambient light
  • Strategic clip placement provides larger interior volume
  • Seam-taped, full-coverage fly with vents
  • Seam-taped bathtub floor
  • Color-coded "easy pitch" clips, poles and fly

very good lightweight Tent


Light and roomy tent.





Light tent for backpacking


Great tent and super lightweight, two vestibules, lots of space, easy setup, waterproofed rainfly.


The dimensions of the floor do not correspond to the declared

Well-designed, comfortable, and practical


Tent has an airy, bright, roomy feeling, is well-ventilated, easy to set up and has provided ample space for me and two 65-lb dogs.I hesitated purchasing a light-weight tent because of concerns the floor, in particular, would not stand up to wear and tear by my dogs or would require the use of a groundsheet. Both concerns have proven to be unfounded; the tent is exceptionally well made and has shown no signs of wear thus far.The smaller of the two vestibules easily accommodates a large backpack, boots, and miscellaneous items, and allows me to leave the larger vestibule as an uncluttered, entry way.The two doorways are large and have zippers that operate quietly and smoothly.There is lots of room to stretch out inside.


I have no specific dislikes. There are obviously some compromises in materials used in order to save weight (e.g. clips, stake tie-outs) but the tent serves its purpose, and I expect to get multiple years of use out of it.

Great lightweight Backpacking Tent


It’s lightweight and roomy. The rain fly does great job keeping your gear dry. Like the roof vent.


No tent footprint.

Love this tent!


I use it as a one person tent and it is like a palace it's so roomy. I've used it for several nights with a steady rain for most of one night. Stayed dry as a bone. Even with the rain fly on I've had no problems with condensation. Sets up easy, can usually have it set up in a little over five minutes. Breaks down and packs up just as easy. I use a footprint with it since it has a 20D floor, but you could probably get away without using one if you're careful. I'd rather just not take the chance. I'm by no means an ultralight hiker but I feel like you get a lot of value in weight to space with this tent. At right around 3lb it's a very reasonable weight for me. With the prebent poles this tent has so much usable space. I'm 6 ft even, and can easily sit up in the tent with plenty of room. All the seams seem to be well stitched and sealed. While I understand that a lot of people would prefer a sinylon fly because of weight, I like the polyester fly because it doesn't stretch. All in all if you're looking for a well constructed, freestanding, lightweight tent; I think this is a winner. I've owned other Marmot tents before and they lasted me years with no problems. I think this one will do the same.


There are a few things I don't like about this tent, but for me, they are not deal breakers. My biggest complaint is that there are no guy out points on the head and the foot end of the fly, this prevents you from getting a super tight pitch. So far it has not been a problem. The night i spent in it and had steady rain for 6 hours the next morning I didn't notice any water on the tent body at the head or the foot end, and I definitely looked. Even if there had been, the bathtub floor goes up a few inches past the fly regardless so it shouldn't be an issue, I'm just nit picking because it just makes sense to me to have guy points there. I'll probably add them myself. Lol. The only other thing I had a problem with is the stakes that come with it are utter crap. I bent one the first time I set it up in my backyard. I just went ahead and replaced them. Also they only provide you with enough stakes to set it up, but not enough for all the guy points, but that seems to be the norm with every tent now.
