Takes a strong wind

Marmot Alpinist is not exactly the warmest tent to sleep in, yet a good sleeping bag can easily take care of this problem. Also, the vestibule is small and generally not very useful, and a second vestibule would have been a welcomed addition but also would have added on extra unwanted weight.
On the other hand, the Alpinist tent is very easy to set up, even by one person, and has no problems staying up even in strong winds. The Alpinist Tent has both its advantages and disadvantages. I still recommend the Marmot Alpinist tent for its sturdiness, ultra light weight and easiness to set up.
