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)

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.

Nice review Joel!
We'd love to see pics of your tent in action!

Thanks james.. well anyone else with any experience with the Marmot Thor 2p tent, can tell me if any of these tents are better.. North Face Mountain 25, Mountain Hardwear Trango 2..

Best Answer Responded on

Ive used the Trango and it was awesome. They are relatively built the same but, the Trango gives you a little more vestibule space, and there is never enough vestibule space when using one of these 4-season tents.

Responded on

The thing I don't like about Trango is that is uses clips rather than sleeves.. Surely sleeves give the poles extra strength and rigidity..

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..

Responded on

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 ( 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.

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....

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.

Does anyone have any experience using the tent in the summer months? I'm thinking of using it as a Spring/ Fall/ Winter tent primarily

Best Answer Responded on

Yeah, it's not as bad for ventilation/condensation as most other 4-season (1-season...Winter) tents I've used. Can open it up fairly well, and pitching to let the wind through makes it fairly comfortable.

Awesome tent!

I slept in this tent for several months straight and never had a problem with leaking, condensation, or lack of space. The vestibule is nicely sized and the design of the tent is ultra-strong. Best money I ever spent!

Nothin special..water tight though!

Heavy..pretty much the same as most other 4 season 2 man tents. Adjustable vents are nice but small, the vestibule zipper got stuck a lot. But, not one ounce of water came through.

I'm glad

I’m so glad with this tent. Excellent ventilation design. Weather proofing features deserve consideration. Internally, a lot of pockets allow organizing a comfortable rest in spite of extreme weather condition. Vestibule is large enough. Tent dyed into real signal indication colour. In t bright days it is very light inside.

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?
