    Don't worry about the storm brewing; the god of thunder is on your side.

    Have you ever spent a night leaning against your tent walls and hoping that it holds until morning? You don't have to worry if you're holed up inside the Marmot Thor Tent. This burly four-season shelter uses a six-pole structural configuration that stands strong in the face of high-mountain storms from Alaska to the Himalayas. Marmot used dual-diameter DAC poles to increase strength where needed and shave ounces where some could be trimmed. After all, you don't want to carry any more weight up the mountain than you have to, right?
    • Silicone-impregnated, polyurethane-coated fly and PU-coated floor repel rain and snow so you and your gear stay dry and protected
    • Catenary Cut floor means the floor material curves a few inches up the tent walls to reduce direct seam-to-ground contact
    • DAC NSL Dual Diameter Green poles save weight without sacrificing durability or strength
    • Poles made with DAC's Green Anodizing process, which reduces the need for hazardous chemicals and recycles water throughout the rinsing process
    • Knees configuration provides taut, near-vertical side walls to increase usable living area and prevent unwanted contact with the fly
    • Dual doors provide extra convenience
    • Front vestibule lets you keep your muddy boots, crampons, and wet bags out of the tent as well as out of the weather
    • Reflective detailing helps you find your way back and identify stealthy guy-lines at night
    • Jingle-free zips mean that you're less likely to disturb your partners during a midnight mission to drain your bladder
    • Internal gear pockets help you keep your kit organized
    • Field repair kit included
    • Optional gear loft sold separately
    • Bare Bones fast-pitch option lets you carry just the poles, fly, and footprint to save extra weight on trail (footprint sold separately)

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    One of my favorite pieces of gear. One of the more expensive too, but worth every penny when used properly. I love the reflective tabs, makes it super easy to find your tent when night skiing down to it with a headlamp on. The pockets inside and ventilation are all perfect, just how I would have designed it. Once you put it up once or twice it's super quick to throw up especially with a second helping. I love the vestibule. I love the ripstop patches they provide, I used some to patch an orange jacket that used to have ugly black ripstop tape on it :) Anyways, I've used the north face 25 and looked into the trango 2 and I have no regrets about going with this tent. Also what other people have said about the curved poles creating lots of space is very true! Good design, love me my marmot. Buy it ASAP and get out there!

    Attention to detail is on point!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    LOVE this tent. I've set it up a few times and used it once and I have to say that Marmot really thought about details with this one.

    Other two-person tents I've owned have really seemed like they were for two conjoined twins or two people who reeeaaallly like to snuggle. The way the walls are structured in this one give it so much more room! It was totally comfy for me, my boyfriend AND our 75lb dog. Also, there is a crapton of storage in this thing - pockets galore, which is great because I like to have a bunch of junk with me in my tent.

    Setup is super easy once you have it down (do it at home first so you know what poles go where, and just to double check that you have everything). This thing is solid. Once you get everything set up and tightened down, it's pretty bombproof. We slept in single digit temps on a windy night and there was not a peep of tent noise.

    Little things that make it awesome:

    - You can access the vents and open/close them from inside or outside. This is so rad.

    - The little 'biner hanging from the ceiling is a nice touch and perfect for hanging a lantern.

    - The window in the big vestibule is awesome so you can see what's going on outside when you wake up in the morning.

    - Surprising amount of vents for a four-season tent.

    - The stakes it comes with are really good. It's not a game-changer or anything, but it's nice not to have to ditch the crappy ones a tent comes with and buy them separately.

    Of course, all of those extras make for a pretty freakin' heavy package, but to me it's totally worth it, and if you split it up between two people it's not TOO bad.

    All in all, I love it and I expect to have a long and happy relationship with this tent :)

    Compression Sacks!

    Do yourselves a favor and cut down on pack-space with some compression sacks.

    (Pic-Thor II with poles, tent, vestibule, footprint, AND stakes)

    Compression Sacks!

    It's been awhile since I purchased these stuff sacks, but I believe we got them from backcountry.com as they always carry the best gear, as well as stand by the products they sell.

    The stuff sacks pictured are by Outdoor Research. Backcountry.com sells newer one's in different colors than the stuff sacks pictured, but I believe the color is the only differing detail. Though they are not as rugged as one might like, if you take care of them they'll take care of you; meaning, don't thrash them and they'll do their job to keep gear tightly packed and dry.

    Thank you!

    Happy hunting!

    This is a great tent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Took ours out for a test run this past weekend for some ice-cold winter sport climbing and camping in Rumney, New Hampshire, and let me tell you-this tent does the trick!

    We purchased the footprint as well and even though the temps dropped into the 10-20degree range, we stayed perfectly warm all night long.

    (Keep in mind we have nice sleeping bags and sleeping pads, but still, this thing is solid)

    I love the attention to detail Marmot gave this tent. It's design could withstand hurricane force winds, and the unique pole system makes for quick set up by a single person in even the roughest of conditions.

    The pole ends fit snugly into the tent straps and have a pull tie adjustment to make this thing line up beautifully and remain tight for days at a time, while also wrapping around the base of the poles to keep them locked into place.

    The vestibule secures with quick locks as well, making this thing easy to pitch in high winds. It's EXTREMELY roomy inside with enough head space to move around. The gear lofts are everywhere and we love being able to tuck books etc inside the walls for entertainment when weather is shutting us down.

    The vent system is incredible and has built in vent poles on the top to allow condensation to escape without causing a problem-great addition!

    5 of 5 Stars! I've owned several 4-season tents over the years and this proves itself as my new favorite!!!

    *The only complaint is the same for ALL 4-season tents, which is weight and pack-size. However, grab some compression sacks and it drastically reduces pack-size. See additional pics!*

    This is a great tent!

    I like it

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought this tent for all season camping. I got my first night in it and found that I like some of the features. Probably one of my favorites is the ability to open some vents in the rain fly. The weather in the Rockies is not quite cold yet and being able to open vents up kept the internal temperature nice. Setting the tent up takes longer than others but is straight forward. Once up seems solid enough to do the tasks it advertised for. My initial impressions are very positive and I hope future updates continue that trend. The only discrepancy I find is the tent is not 93" long, mine is closer to 89", not a big deal but missing length would be nice to have.

    Freaking awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    After much review and I decided to purchase this four season tent. With much excitement I was finally able to use it in the bitter cold last weekend. Temps dipped twenty below, with blowing bitter wind. The tent held up like a small fortress, no issues what so ever. It is idiot proof to set up, knowing that from first hand experience, and I had no issues. However, the tent is HEAVY to carry, I dismissed this when I first read the specs, however, you will feel it's weight in your pack. The folks from Backcountry were wonderful to deal with, and I am not an easy customer to make happy. You will not be disappointed, excellent customer service, very knowledgeable. GREAT BUY....

    Which one do you recommend between Thor 2p and TNF Mountain 25? I'll use it soon in Aconcagua and other South American's Peaks, and in the future, maybe Denali and Kilimanjaro.

    Thank you!!! Best regards from Argentina =)

    One of my company favorite tent, we have been using Thor 2P for 2 years now and we had no complain frm the clients. Max dnt worry I will provide that for you when you will be ready for Kilimanjaro. I'm in Spain for the moment and hope to purchase more Thor 2P and taking them with me back to my country Tanzania.

    Thanks Lexi.. So can anyone here tell me out of these tents , North Face Mountain 25, Mountain Hardwear Trango 2.. Which one of these tents is better than the Marmot Thor 2p tent.. In extreme weather conditions such as wind and heavy rain thanks..

    Best Answer

    Between those two, I'm clueless to the fact of whether or not they are better than the Marmot Thor 2P, but I did find a review on Outdoor Gear Lab (http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/4-Season-Tent-Reviews/North-Face-Mountain-25) that enumerates several reasons why the Trango 2 by Mountain Hardwear is preferable to the NF Mountain 25. If you're torn between those two, I would check out the review and see if the pros they hit on for the MH are characteristics you are looking for in your expeditionary/alpine-class tent.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello is there anyone here that owns or has experience with the Marmot Thor 2p tent, in heavy rainy condition's... I would just like to know how waterproof this tent is.. I'm stuck between getting the Thor 2p Tent or The North Mountain 25.. I'm not too familiar with the brand Marmot but I have been told they make some exceptional tents.. Any advice would be welcome thanks.

    I've seen on some reviews that this is a decent sized 2 person tent, would it fit two people and a black lab? or should I go with the 3 person? Also, I'm thinking of this one or The North Face Assault, thoughts?

    I don't have this tent, but most tents are sized to fit the rated person-count very snugly -- both to minimize weight and to maximize warmth. This is especially true in four-season tents.

    From the dimensions listed, 93 x 56 in, this one doesn't seem any different... so I would think you'd be quite cramped in there with two people and a dog. If you want to figure it out at home, you might lay out your sleeping pads (and dog) and take a measurement--remembering that the tent walls will have quite a slope near the edges.

    Nice, but there´s no snow skirt at all? Fil

    From my experience, I have used Marmot Thor Tent in winter. Air temperature was not so cold (about -2C), but windy. Proper position made environment inside the tent acceptable for six days hiking. I guess it has happened cause of fabric quality of Thor Tent. Other tents has been protected by shielding wall created from snow blocks.

    I don't have this tent (yet) but saw a great little video where the guy showed every detail -- I'm sold! What I really like is the almost vertical-wall design, and the ventilation, oh yeah, and the nice window to see out -- just an awesome tent. Marmot is also coming out (2014) with a very light weight (5lb or so) two-man expedition tent and will be called the "HAMMER". Wow, I've gotta check this out first before I buy the Thor -- who knows, the Hammer may be the ticket to nail down my decision?
