If you're traveling solo and looking to save weight without sacrificing comfort, the Marmot Eos Tent is a lightweight shelter that means business. A thoughtfully designed one-pole system means that you can set up your tent in a flash, and a roomy vestibule stores more gear outside the tent while still keeping it protected from weather.

  • Silicon-impregnated, polyurethane-coated floor and fly repel rain so you and your gear stay dry inside
  • Catenary Cut floor means the floor material curves a few inches up the tent walls to reduce direct seam-to-ground contact
  • DAC aluminum poles are easy to assemble day or night and save weight without sacrificing durability or strength
  • Poles are made with DAC's Green Anodizing process, which reduces the need for hazardous chemicals and recycles water throughout the rinsing process
  • Single door helps save weight, and side vestibule lets you keep your muddy boots and wet bag out of the tent yet out of the rain, too
  • Bare Bones fast-pitch option lets you carry just the poles, fly, and footprint to save extra weight on trail (footprint sold separately)

Great tent! A few flaws

    This tent is dope. It is big enough for my 6' 2" frame to fit comfortably while horizontal. When I sit up my head rubs the nettings on top, but thats okay unless it is raining. The rain fly is decent, however it is where my major greif with the tent comes in. The side walls fore and aft, are not quite long enough. You can tether the fly down pretty well but it always seems like there is a small gap allowing a small amount of water into the tent. If you do buy the foot print, be advised that it does not fit perfectly. I wake up in the morning finding the footprint have curled up under the tent. Other than that this tent is AWESOME. It is light enough and small enough for me to carry it in my Osprey talon 44, as a back up incase I dont reach a shelter or it is to crowded. I would buy this again, although the rain fly is frustrating.

    Great Tent

      Light, tough and easy to set up.
      Only one complaint I have is that there's no grommet in shorter side.
      One rainy windy night it flapped and rain came in.
      I fixed it putting grommet in shorter side myself.
      Other than that this tent is great.

      Design flaw

        The rainfly for the EOS-1 has a 1-2 inch flap that is supposed to cover the zipper. However, it does not have velcro or other mechanism to secure it, so the flap is easily moved by the wind, which causes the zipper to be exposed to the elements and increases the risk of leakage into the tent.

        I am 6'2". The tent is lightweight and easy to set up, there is enough room to sleep comfortably, but there is little room for sitting up. It is impossible to sit up without hitting my head and/or shoulders on the mesh and pushing it into the rainfly. When this occurred in the a.m., condensation under the fly got on my head and shoulders.

        Marmot Eos 1-Person 3-Season Tent

          First off this tent is extremely light and has a very small stuff size, small enough to fit in most 40L packs. The first thing you will notice is the typical cheap stakes, so through those away and pick up some MSR ground hog stakes. The single pole design is amazingly simple and easy to set up, after that all you have to do is use the single clips to complete the set up. That’s it. Set up in less than 2 minutes. The rain fly is even more simple, just clip on to the 4 corners and your done. The inside Velcro straps are completely optional, but if you wanted to secure the rain fly completely that just takes a couple more seconds. The jingle free zippers are completely snag free and both the door and the vestibule can be opened from virtually any position. The vestibule is small but big enough to store your shoes or to cook. Both the door and the vestibule door can be secured to the side using a simple adjustable lock strap. Inside there are to installed gear lofts. The interior does not have much room, when sitting with my legs folded my head and shoulders do touch the top and the sides, but this is a minor inconvenience compared to the small stuff size. I am 6ft but did not fill cramped at all, of course a 2 person tent has more room, but for a 1 person tent it’s pretty roomy. My sleeping bag, sleeping mat and all my gear fit just fine including my pack. Holds up in a thunderstorm like a champ, had no problems with condensation or water leaking in at all. My only real complaint is that getting in and out is a little difficult, it seems like the door to vestibule design is a little off, makes me feel like I am in a tent made for a Hobit. Other than that This tent ranks high on my list of the best tents I have used. If your climbing big or far you need a light weight tent with a small stuff size for a good price without sacrificing quality this is the tent for you.

          EOS 4 Me!

            The EOS is a kick (insert naughty word for gluteus maximus) tent. On my solo trips, before this tent, I hauled around the Marmot Aeolos 2p. When I realized it was stupid to carry around a two person tent on a solo hike I bought an Outdoor Research Alpine Bivy. After finding out that bivys are not fun to use in the rain I bought the Marmot EOS tent. BINGO! I love this thing. Setting it up is extremely easy. Seriously, the first time I set it up was via headlamp light with gloves on and I did it in just over a minute. The bathtub floor and the rain fly offer impenetrable rain protection. The tent has a very large door on both the body and rain fly for easy entrance. There is plenty of floor space to stash a jacket, waterbottle, and other essentials at BOTH the head and foot of the tent. The tent is so little that it can be set up pretty much anywhere, even considering the generous vestibule space.

            What I don't like: The length of the floor is great but the walls aren't very steep so sometimes my toes hit the mesh ceiling. Also, I would have liked to see a guy-out point in the middle of each end on the rain fly but that is just me being picky.

            There are better tents which have been talked about on this page but these particular tents are more expensive. I give the EOS 5/5 because you will not find a better solo tent at this price.

            A great little tent

              I purchased this tent two years ago and it is my only backpacking tent. I use it in all weather conditions. Because of the clips and colour coding you really can set this tent up, by yourself, in less than two minutes. I am not small at 6ft and 220lbs but I have no issues with the interior size. Remember it is a solo tent. I sleep comfortably with my head at the narrow end and my backpack inside by my feet.

              I recommend you buy the Footprint. I recently had to put this tent up in a blizzard at night. I was able to peg out the footprint. Then add the poles and fly before I installed the tent inside the protected shell I had created. In the morning I reversed the order and it kept the tent clean and dry all weekend. It does seem to move and flap quite a lot in high winds but it is always still standing in the morning.

              The bathtub floor is wonderful when it's cold and windy but you trade this for limited breeze on the hot summer nights. Sometimes I opt for only the footprint and a can of bug spray.

              Overall I am very happy with my tent and would buy it again.

              Poor Customer Service

                If you ever plan to deal with the customer service, do not buy Marmot Tents. I sent them mine about 6 months ago (my tent has a lifetime warranty). After 5 years and about 5 2-3 day hikes per year the seam tapes started to go off. After 2 months I called them to find out that they received the tent and would replace it. I wasn’t happy, since they no longer produced a single person tent for a 6ft tall person, but said OK. 2 months later I called and was told that my tent had mildew and would not be repaired or replaced. They offered me to buy a net tent at a discount. The cheapest I could find would have cost me over a $100. I said NO, I want my old tent back. They said they would ship it. 2 months later – no tent. I called them and the guy named Fry told me they still have my old tent in their office.
                By the way, I dried my tent after every backpack and didn’t see any mildew when I sent it.

                Does this come with a footprint? if not,...

                Does this come with a footprint? if not, do they sell it on backcountry?

                It does not come with the footprint, and you can buy it separate but I do not recommend spending the money. Though I would give this tent the best review of any tent I own, the foot print however is a different story. It does not match up with the base of the tent at all so the pole will not match with the grommet on the tent. I agree with ewheelermad; Tyvek would be a cheaper and better alternative.

                Thinking of getting this tent for my dad....

                Thinking of getting this tent for my dad. He is is 6'2", 200 lbs. Do you think the interior height will be sufficient for his height and not feel cramped sitting up inside? Was also looking at MSR Hubba.

                Best Answer

                The Hubba is 4" taller at the peak (40") and the walls are more vertical, although it's 4" shorter and 14" narrower than the Eos 1 (Hubba- 86"lx26"wx40"h) (Eos 90"lx40"wx36"h). At 6'2" he's probably going to need roughly 32-33" to sit straight up with a ground pad. Whether he feels cramped is a matter of personal spatial psychology. If it's not going to be a surprise gift, ask him for his thoughts, since he's the one who's going to be using it. Also have a look at the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL1 or the Copperspur UL1. Hope that helps.

                What is the difference between this and...

                What is the difference between this and the older 2007 model? The 2007 model looks to have less mesh, a window in the vestibule, a vent in the fly and lighter. All these thing that have been taken away seem like a plus. Why the changes? What makes this newer model better?

                Best Answer

                I don't think one is really better than the other but they added more mesh which most of the tent manufactures have done. The new model is also a little larger which is probably the reason it is a few ounces heavier. They should have left the window in the vestibule, that is a nice feature.

                I need a new 1 person backpacking tent...

                I need a new 1 person backpacking tent that is as small and light as possible while still functioning as a free standing tent . I have a tight budget so I can't afford to purchase a bum tent. So far I am pretty much sold on the Marmot Eos tent because of the design, brilliant features, small stuff size and great reviews. On the other hand the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL1 is a little lighter but appears to have all the same great features, they just don’t have the extremely helpful version of Curly’s clips to demonstrate the features. Can anyone help tip the scales and tell me which one they prefer and why? If you have experience with one or both tents, your input would be greatly appreciated.

                Best Answer

                I will pretend that there is NOT a $30 difference between these two tents since $30 is relatively a small price. So in my opinion:

                CRITERIA = WINNING TENT
                Living space = SL1 (by far)
                Weather Proofness = SL1 (better guy points and lower fly)
                Weight = SL1
                Material Durability = Eos
                Ease of Setup = Eos
                Vestibule = SL1
                Ease of Entry = Eos
                Color = Eos! (who wants a grey tent?)

                What tent would I choose? Big Agnes SL1 and I am sure that few would argue with me but I have seen the Eos on some smashing sales which is why I bought it over the SL1.

                Eos v. MSR Hubba So I am in the market...

                Eos v. MSR Hubba




                So I am in the market for a fairly light 1p tent and have narrowed my choices down. I realize from the comments that the Eos has less headroom, but at 5'5" and 120lbs, I don't think space will be an issue. I'm more concerned with: 1) stability in windy conditions, particularly the High Sierra; 2) Ease of setup, especially in adverse conditions. Thoughts?

                Best Answer

                The only major difference I can see is the head room might be better on the MSR Hubba. I personally haven't spent any time in the Marmot Eos, but I have camped at 15,000+ feet in Ecuador on the face of Cotopaxi in the MSR Hubba HP. We had stiff winds all night and the Hubba held up very admirably. It was moving in the wind and did give me some concern at one particular windy gust, but it never collapsed and was in great shape the next day. I was super impressed! My climbing buddies used a Black Diamond tent and they had the same concerns. I know, due to my experiences, that the MSR Hubba HP will take a tremendous amount of wind. The MSR Hubba is the same tent except for all mesh walls vs. nylon walls of the HP.

                The Marmot has less poles, so it theoretically should be easier to set up. Neither are really designed for high winds as the one-man shape means that your tent is relatively tall with a short support base. For the best wind protection of all these light, one-man tents, I would check out the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL1. by design it's a bit more stable than the other two, and while the MSR has a little more headroom, the Seedhouse gives you roughly five extra square feet of living space, which is pretty nice.

                Could a thin guy 6'1 and 170lbs and a 60lb dog fit in this thing?

                Best Answer

                You yourself could fit in the actual tent part that zips up, but it would be tight for both of yall. My ground pad is 20 inches wide so if you had one of those and were all the way to one side then your dog would have 20" of width and 90" of length to sleep on. So if he can sleep in the small of space he could sleep in there but it would be cramped. He could definetly chill in the vestibule which is covered by the rain fly but has no floor like the inside of the tent you will be sleeping on. you could bring a tarp and put it down there and he could sleep on that, but then you'd have to bring like a trash bag to put over your pack and extra things so they don't get wet because you'd usually put that inside your vestibule unless you bear bagged it.
                Hope that helps

                Is the tent floor really 40 inches wide or is that a typo?

                Best Answer

                The tent is 40" at the shoulder and tapers down at the foot. The picture doesn't really show it but the arch created by the hub system is much bigger at the head of the tent - making it more spacious when you sit up.
