A trimmed-down version of the best-selling Tungsten tent, the Marmot Tungsten UL 3P maximizes livability while keeping weight (3 lbs, 12.3 oz) at a place that caters to up to 3 backpackers.
Easily accessed on either side by dual D-shaped doors, the interior of the tent offers 41.5 square feet of floor space. A front vestibule provides 10.6 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. 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 3P Footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects, mud and ground water.
