    Details

    A spacious single-person tent for your solo wilderness excursions.

    Backpacking the JMT solo can be uncomfortable at times, especially when an afternoon thunder shower rolls through the high country. But with the Marmot Tungsten 1-Person Tent in your pack, you can hike ahead knowing you can take shelter from the storm anytime, anywhere. Marmot's new line of Tungsten tents utilize a volume optimizing design to increase the living space from previous X-206 frame tents by 35%. Sleeping zone pre-bends create vertical sidewalls that not only help shed rain, but increase the tent's sleeping area.

    The rain fly is comprised of a durable, fully seam taped 68D polyester fabric treated with a PU coating. A No-See-Um mesh canopy allows for a bug-free sleep under the stars on clear nights, and a tough, seam taped PU-coated floor prevents water from working through on rainy nights. Color coded Easy Pitch clips make setting the tent up by headlamp a cinch, and an interior headlamp pocket provides ambient light to do some reading by once you're hunkered down for the night. One D-shaped door makes your morning pee shuffle that much easier, and a single vestibule space provides adequate space to store your pack or to boil a quick pot of water.

    Not a bad tent.

      This tent is a bit tight, on the length, for a 6'5' guy, but I have not found any other solo tents that were much bigger. I have only used it once, and it did work great. I would suggest bringing a backpacking tarp to lay down in the vestibule, that will save from dirt and stuff getting drug in the tent. The footprint is rather on the small side too.

      solid tent for solo adventuring

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have used this for a few multi day kayak trips and it has been solid performer. The first night I slept in the Tungsten it rained all night long. At times it was raining so hard the sound inside the tent was a constant roar. The next morning I found zero evidence of water inside the tent. Set-up is extremely easy and intuitive even in the dark. It does not come with enough stakes to fully stake it out so I would encourage buying at least 3 more before using it. Packs up easily and the bag is large enough to stuff everything in without struggling. The little light diffusor pocket is a neat idea but I found that my light kept falling out of it. It just is not big enough to hold most headlamps. I def recommend this tent and it is a solid performer for a very fair price.

      Just what I needed

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

      Looking to cut weight from my pack and not break the bank, I ordered the Tungsten 1P tent. Used on a 3 day trip on the Buffalo River Trail in Arkansas where it rained on us the 1st night. I fit comfortably with my 20 inch pad with room in the tent for clothing, light, etc. Kept the pack and shoes in the vestibule. Next morning, everything was dry. Only small con I noticed was that it can be a challenge getting the poles to stand upright when sitting the tent up. Would be nice if Marmot would add a plastic/rubbery connector to the poles like my Marmot 2P Limelight has. Overall, completely sold on the Tungsten and Marmot.

      Packs too large for my liking

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      Wow, this tent packs big! I never actually got to use the Tungsten in the outdoors. I'm a big fan of Marmut equipment and was in the market for another solo tent for when I take friends along on my backpacking trips. When I received the large package from Backcountry.com, I at first thought they had sent me the the wrong 2 or 3-person version. However, after unpacking and setting up the tent in my living room, it was clear it WAS the 1-person. I already own a North Face 1-person Stormbreak tent and the Tungsten tent packs nearly twice as large! After setup, it was only 3-4 inches wider and taller than my Stormbreak and actually weighed a little more. In short, PACKED this tent is as as large (if not larger) than my 2-person Mountain Hardwear. I was looking for a "small" 1-person tent which takes up as little space as possible in my pack for 4-5 day trips. This was not the tent for me. I exchanged the tent with absolutely no hassle for another 1-person tent in the same price range which packs down much smaller and lighter.

      Packs too large for my liking

      Great for solo missions in a storm

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Afternoon thunderstorms are a just a part of life when you're getting above the treeline in the summer months. This tent is light in the pack, quick to set up, and keeps the rain and hail out. I'm 6' and 165 and there's plenty of wiggle room for an active sleeper like myself, even after getting most of my gear in. I love the interior pockets for quick access to my headlamp and other essential items. Once the rain stops its easy to pull the rain fly off and get that true under-the-stars feeling while lounging beneath the mosquito-shielding, barely visible mesh.

      I'm often tempted to ditch this thing in favor of a hammock when packing up for a long trip but typically, in my experience, saving the space/weight is rarely worth sacrificing the comfort of the Tungsten.

      Great for Bikepacking

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have used this tent for bikepacking now a few times and I really do love it. The tent, fly, and footprint all fit nicely with room to spare in my seat pack. Once set up, there is just enough room for my sleeping pad and sleeping bag. I still had a little room at the foot of the tent for smaller items and clothing. Everything else that needs to fits in the vestibule. Set up is quick and smooth. I'm 6' and 230lbs and I do not feel cramped in the tent.

      The only reservations that I have is that it is difficult to get the rain fly taught. With a little adjustment AND having the guylines attached and staked, it is possible to get it pretty tight. It seems like the door side is a little loose, but this has not caused any problems in the rain. The other issue, which is easily dealt with, is the footprint does not line up with the tent and poles perfectly. I have found that by wrapping the footprint attachments a bit around where the poles meet the tent, it works just fine. All in all, this tent is perfect for what I do with bikepacking and I would certainly recommend it.

      Fast Pitch

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

      Great tent fot the price. The whole tent topography is great and it does create much more room in the tent.

      This tent does not fast pitch though, poles can't stay up w/o tent body.

      Roomy 1P

        The Tungsten 1P features Marmot's new zone construction. By utilizing pre-bent "knees" on the poles, strategic clip placement and extended head and foot zones Marmot has increase both the head space and sleeping space over a standard x frame tent. The 1P includes a footprint and a new lamp shade pocket, which will diffuse the light of a headlamp making it possible for to see or read in the tent.

        Does the advertised weight of this tent include the footprint (sonce it comes with the tent)?
