What is the difference between the packed weight and trail weight? What exactly is not being considered or included in the trail weight?

Responded on

The trail weight does not include the ground cloth.

Hey Paul,

To kinda expand on that the packed weight of a tent is typically everything that comes with the tent and can include stuff sacks, tent, fly, poles, footprint (if included), gearloft (again if included) and stakes.

Trail weight is just the essentials for setting up the tent: fly, poles, tent, and my exclude even the stakes if its a free standing tent.

If you come across a tent that list fast pitch weight then that is just the fly, poles and footprint.

Awesome tent!

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

I bought this tent for backpacking and car camping. I used it for the first time on a car camping trip to the Sam Houston National Forest this weekend. The set up is super easy! I was able to assemble it in minutes by myself. I got this tent because of the two doors, which is a huge bonus! There is a large vestibule big enough for two packs & a smaller one that actually fit my friends pack as well (although it was not very full since we were car camping). The color is actually much different looking for the hatch/dark cedar than it looks online. It's very light weight which will be nice for backpacking. Some other reviews complained about it being tight for two people, but I found it to be roomy enough for two of us. It's a great tent & you can't beat the price.

I'm a little afraid due to the price being so cheap... do I have anything to be worried of?

Hey Adam,

This is a new item that happens to be on sale right now. If the tent meets your needs, you have nothing to worry about from it's performance or Marmot's guarantee. As far as Backcountry goes: their customer service is impeccable. You're not only making a purchase, you're creating a relationship. Without a doubt, the fairest and most customer focused retailer I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Put all your worries aside, and if this is the tent you want, go for it!

My other home...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I lived in this thing for the past summer while working on the Colorado Plateau (ie Moab). It's a great little tent for the price. It stands up to pretty strong winds without a problem (if you have the guylines staked out) and has endured a few pretty intense late-summer thunder storms we get out this way. It has enough room for me and all my junk I like to bring along. I haven't tried to fit two people in it, but I imagine it wouldn't be too bad if they didn't mind sharing space. Like any tent, when they say two-person, they mean two bodies and no other gear. The rain fly is wide enough to let you store some stuff under it, but you could also get a pack cover and get along just fine.
Here's my list of negatives:
The rain fly can be a bit awkward. You have to stake it down by the doors so it won't flap around, which effectively cuts the opening for the inner tent in half. I usually load my gear in before I put the fly on, it's just easier that way. Also, to open the side that extends out further from the inside can be a trick since you have to reach to get to the zipper.
Ventilation with the rain fly on (when it's hot and the air's not moving) is limited.
It doesn't keep dust out at all (but what modern backpacking tent in this price range will?).
Zippers jam up sometimes (probably from dust, but that's all the experience I have with it).
Internal pocket organizer space is limited but good enough to get by.
I love that it comes with everything, including an extra stake and a pole repair tube and footprint. It's light enough that I wouldn't hesitate to take it backpacking (though I haven't had the opportunity yet).

Nice Tent...Great Value

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

I just received this recently as a gift and have not had a chance to test it in bad weather however it seems good so far. First off, one of the things I love about it is the price/value ratio you get with this tent. You really can't ask for a better deal due to the fact that everything is included. One pet peeve of mine with buying tents, especially expensive ones is that once you pay the hefty price, you have to buy additional stakes, guylines, and footprint. Marmot includes everything you need to set this up in a full storm, once you pay for it, that's it. As others have noted, there are two vestibules for gear storage. The front is about average size and the second is only really good for storing a pair of boots. The second door is really nice to have, thus eliminating any need for climbing over one another. I have the Orange color which stands out, which might turn off some people, and the Marmot logo is made with a reflective material/paint making it easy to get back to at night with a headlamp. Inside is just enough room to fit two people comfortably, however you'll probably have to either leave your packs outside or sleep with them under your feet. The doors and zippers open freely and have soft tabs on them so they don't make a lot of noise. I think the doors are a bit small, but you have plenty of headroom to sit straight up. Nice tent overall, I'm going to take it out this weekend and am expecting bad weather so we'll see how it holds up. Guyed out it's a very study design, I'm pretty sure it'll hold up to some nasty weather, including moderate snowfall. Four stars only because I haven't tested it thoroughly in bad weather.

Great for price.

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

Enough room for 2 smaller pp and packs and best of all it's very easy to assemble. Very small second vestibule but it's nice not to have to climb over someone.
Compared to others in same price range, weight and commodity are a plus.

why does Traillight packs 8 inches longer...

why does Traillight packs 8 inches longer than some of the other Marmot's 2P?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Bonxie,

I was confused when looking at the specs of this too, however I just received this tent as a gift and found that the tent poles break down into longer than average sections. The stuff sack with the tent inside is pretty long but narrow. Hope this clears up the confusion.

Responded on

In addition, if you're concerned about backpacking, this thing can stuff into a 8 liter compression sack with no problem!
