    Three makes it a party.

    The Marmot Tungsten 3-Person 3-Season tent allows you, a friend, and another friend to get out and enjoy a night in the wilderness unscathed by the elements. With a design that maximizes living space, this roomy tent won't leave you feeling like you're sharing a bivy sack with two other musky campers. Two D-shaped doors make for stealthy ins and outs throughout the night, and two vestibules provide plenty of dry storage space for you and both your friends' camping gear.

    With an emphasis on durability, Marmot used a seam taped, PU coated, 68-denier polyester fabric for the floor and fly of the tent. Then it backed the fly with a no-see-um mesh canopy for a bug-free night out under the stars. Three DAC Press-Fit poles make for a secure setup and are color coded with the fly and clips. A lampshade pocket is designed to disperse light from a headlamp for a well lit space once the sun sets, and small interior pockets are a great place to keep your small essentials close at hand.

    Great tent...made for two

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

    We've used this tent a few times now. It's incredibly simple to put up - even in the dark.
    It is possible to get three people in this tent, but it's pretty snug and all gear needs to go in the vestibule(s). If there are just two of you, this tent is perfect.
    The two-door feature is great - no clambering over each other to get out! Also love the multiple interior pockets for stashing all your essentials. Ambient light pocket is perfect for reading after the sun goes down.
    A great tent, especially for the price!

    First time tent buyer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been extremely happy with this tent purchase. I love the look of it when it is all set up and the rainfly is on. This tent is super easy to set up. I do it by myself and on several occasions in the dark using my headlamp as the only light source. This tent has been well loved and used in a heavy rain. Everything stayed dry as it should. Also the reflective features help to find camp when night hiking. The ambient light pocket is nice if I stay up a bit later to read; I can see and not disturb the other people who may be in the tent. I love that there are pockets in each corner so that where ever I choose to put my head I have somewhere to put my glasses and watch. The hook in the center is perfect for my tent fan/light. The vents on the rainfly combined with my fan make it much cooler during a hot summer camping experience.

    Poles are annoyingly too big!

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

    All things considered this is a really good tent. I always had a 2 person tent previously and wanted to get some extra room for when 2 people are in the tent, and this tent provides plenty of room for two people. I always go by the rule that if a tent says it's made for 2 people, it's most likely a 1 person tent. I haven't had this through any harsh rain, but in my first use I can't see why it wouldn't hold up in those conditions. My only negative about this tent are the poles, and that's why it lost 2 stars for the review. The head room that the pre-bent poles provide is nice, but I will give up the head room for more compact poles when packing up. I can pack up the tent, rain fly, and foot print in a medium size compression sack, but the poles are so long that they will not fit or you need to keep them separate from the rest of the tent setup. If Marmot would redesign the poles for this tent to be more compact it would easily get 5 starts.

    For now it looks like this tent will be designated to car camping, and my search for a new backpacking tent continues.

    Like I said, all in all it's a good tent, it comes down to minor personal preferences that lost it some stars.

    Looks the part...

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

    Unfortunately I have not used this tent other than a setup. With that said, the tent looks great. I chose green. It was exactly what I was expecting. It looks great. I also received what I was expecting with the setup of this tent. My first thought upon opening the tent was, "where are the instructions"? I fooled myself. Didn't need them. This tent was extremely easy to setup and quick. The color coding this tent uses made this very understandable. I love the amount of space this tent has as well. The design definitely opens this tent up. My last note would be the zippers. I've struggled with my "cheaper" tents in the past and their faulty zippers. These feel great as well as look the part! I hope they hold longevity as well. My only complaint is that I have not used this yet.

    Excellent casual camping tent

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

    Out one of the NC barrier islands beach camping. The tent was very easy to pitch for the first time trying. It is spacious for 2 people but I can't imagine 3. I'm a big guy at 6'3" 220. She is small 5'1" and 130. We fit just fine with all our gear inside and plenty of room to sit, talk, cuddle and eat. Lots of interior pockets for organizing important items. I do wish it had come with enough stakes to fully stake out the fly. Even with all the mesh there was still considerable condensation, consider sleeping with your head on the side with more mesh to avoid this. It is bulky though I don't find the weight excessive.

    So roomy Easy setup Condensation issue

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

    My girlfriend and I are photographers, at the moment, in Colorado. We bought this tent due to the sale and the fact that it is probably the most symmetrical tent we could find and the space both inside and outside in the dual vestibules is what we need for ourselves and our great pyrenees, who is going to be a huge dog.

    Setup was incredibly simple and the tent looks great. We got the green and after having an orange tent for the last 5 years, I gotta say, the green is choice. The amount of space inside is awesome and due to the wall design it feels like there is a lot more space. We had plenty of room for our camera gear inside the tent and plenty of room under the vestibule outside each of the two doors. I really did not want to say anything bad about this tent, because we love it and it will be with us for a long time, hopefully, but condensation is still a problem. I asked about this issue, because I had read in an older review that the tent had lots of condensation after a cold night. I was told not to trust one bad review. So the first night, with the cool new vents open on both sides, we slept. When I woke in the morning the entire inner part of my vestibule was covered in a layer of water, but my girlfriend had none on her side. We chock that up to a slight tilt on uneven ground. On night two, we woke to a fine layer of frost on the inside of the both vestibules and lots of ice on the outside. It was cold. Either way, we still absolutely love the tent. Just wish the condensation problem could be fixed. Really wanted a tent that did not have that problem, after owning a backpacking tent for the last 5 years that did the same thing. I figured after 5 years there could be some tents out there that have solved the issue and this one said it does, but it does not. Only reason I am giving this 4 stars is the condensation we had to deal with and are going to have to deal with on future trips.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked this up to replace an older backpacking tent, and I needed a larger one now that my girlfriend goes with me. This tent is amazing, no other way to put it. This tent fits my girlfriend and I, and my two lab mixes perfectly. The only issue I've had with this is a little bit of moisture build up under the fly some nights.

    The perfect all around tent.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used this tent all over the mountains, on beaches, from car camping to backpacking. It can do it all. My only small complaints are the weight (which was expected) and the condensation we had under the rainfly on a few occasions.

    The perfect all around tent.

    Great Tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Easy to set up, pretty spacious and, for a 3-person heavier backpacking tent, the bent poles near the corners add so much more room. I've used it several times and can't find anything I don't like yet! Oh, lifetime warranty! Booyeah cooyeah!

    Well designed tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I live this tent. Took a few camp outs to learn how to set it up for good airflow. First few times there was a lot of condensation. It only comes with 6 stakes, needs 12 for the guy lines. Once I had it staked properly, airflow is great and it with stood a 24 hour down pour with no water leaks anywhere! Head room is unlike any other tent of comparable size. Marmots warranty department is very easy to work with. Bent a stake and they replaced nonissue.

    Love Marmot!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My girlfriend and I just got back from an 8 day road trip around Cape Breton Island, NS and the Bay of Fundy, during which we camped for 7 days straight. The Tungsten was a great tent! Easy to set up (<5 mins after we got used to it), pack up, and live in. It kept us dry in pretty heavy rain showers, and survived some decent wind as well. Like so many other reviewers, we had major condensation issues on the inside of the fly during our stay at Fundy. Although none of it dripped into the tent, the fly had a good coating of moisture on it each morning we were there. Mind you, EVERYTHING had a coating of moisture on it, as the coast stayed shrouded in fog for nearly three days.

    I'd buy this tent over again in a heartbeat, although I think Marmot needs to look at their fly venting design to figure out the condensation issues...

    Love Marmot!

    My favorite 3 person Tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of my favorite 3 person tents. Weight is still decent for backpacking, and the extra floor space is quite comfy. This easily has fit three people comfortably with some gear and even a dog as well at one point with gear out in the vestibule. It can be snug, but still comfortable. The tent is easy to set up and has held up well in weather, including a crazy hailstorm in the Uintahs couple weekends ago.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of my favorite tents I've owned. Easy to set up, the extra floor space with the bent poles really makes it feel roomy, and the pocket that reflects light on the inside works great! Having two doors is essential so you don't have to wake up your tentmates when you have to rid yourself of the extra beer in the middle of the night. Also comes with the footprint which is killer! Take the footprint, poles, and rainfly and ditch the tent body if you are trying to travel lighter.

    Great Tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We have used this on several occasions across Colorado and it has been great. Super easy to pack everything back up into the bag. This tent is definitely not for 3 people with gear unless you like to be very snug. We have room for two people, a small duffel bag and our dog who sleeps between us. I'm glad I did my research on the sizing and got a three person instead of a two person. The two entrance doors are great so you aren't crawling over the person next to you just to get out. Overall a great tent I would purchase again.

    Great Tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a single camper and I needed something I could be comfortable in that would hold me and my gear. I have used it car camping a few times and as my tent on an overnight kayak trip. Ya, I am one person and have a 3 person tent. This allows me plenty of room for me and any gear I want in the tent.

    The knee wall design is awesome. It really does help keep you from bumping into the inside of the rent when sleeping to close to the edge. It also opens up the tent because of the pitch of the roof with the knee walls. Being over 6' I have no issue stretching out. It's not a stand in tent but there's kneel up in room.

    It's very easy to set up and has stood up well to the wind and horrible rains. Float away rain. The vestibule can be used to store a 64 quart cooler and some gear. I did have an issue with moisture inside with the tent tarp fully closed in nasty rains.

    I just ordered a Exped MegaMat. An upgrade from my Thermarest Guide Light. It should work well in this tent. I will post a review of it after I use it.

    Great except for the condensation

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I took this tent for a solo three week car camping trip and was really happy with it until it rained. When I woke up I'd find everything around the edges dry and everything in the center, including the top of my sleeping bag, wet from the condensation. This happened every time. I had it fully staked out and there was only me in the tent so I can only assume there just isn't enough ventilation built in at the top. The two little flaps aren't enough. From now on I will just use it for trips where there is no chance of rain.

    Love the Tungsten

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great tent. Very sturdy and very, very easy to set up. It's a solid addition to any weekend excursion. I can set this up in less than 10 minutes, maybe less than 5 but I've not timed it. Once it is up I know it's going to stay there - the Tungsten will hold up in strong winds.

    I got the 3 person, and it's great for 2 plus some space and gear. If I was camping with 3 people it would be too tight. If you're looking for something larger check out the Halo. But if you want something light, easy to set up, and durable go with the Tungsten. It won't disappoint.

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this tent for myself and girlfriend to use on backpacking trips. I haven't been disappointed. We're both 5'10, and it has plenty of room for our things inside the tent. The vestibules are great for adding room outside. The double door feature is a must for two or more people. It's not the lightest backpacking tent but it works for us. IF you are tall and or need room for 3 I would suggest going larger. We both use pads and they will take up a lot of room. If you don't use them then you will have room for plenty in this tent. Great for cold temperatures as well. It comes with the footprint. No issues so far with stakes, or guy wires. Some have mentioned condensation, but haven't had an issue and I sleep hot. We've had it down to 30 degrees with no issues. Rain didn't bother the tent or have condensation inside. On the east coast you'll find it useful to have the fly. It is easily set up in rain thanks to the poles/fly combination. You can keep the body of the tent dry by doing it that way.

    Tungsten vs Limelight 3p

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I own 2 old versions of the Limelight 3p and now, due to some puppy teeth through one of my doors, I now own a Tungsten 3p. I have to say the only reason I bought the Tungsten was because I was no longer able to find and buy the old version of the Limelight series. I purchased all 3 for just under $200 each with coupons.

    To start with comparisons, the big things I noticed were that the Tungsten had no gear loft, the ground mat design changed slightly and the door opening changed sides. The pole bends also added some lift to the tent.

    The gear loft was useful for me in the Limelight but the Tungsten does have a lot of mesh pockets, a central hook for a lamp, and there are still 4 loops in the ceiling. This could still be utilized for a very large gear loft or maybe a custom setup. There are plenty of options if you get creative but I still miss the small gear loft option.

    The ground mat size was reduced slight and the nylon strap length was increased to keep it long enough to match where the pole holes connect. They removed the clip option that was on the Limelight. I think it was made to just use the ground mat and rain fly for a basic shelter. This feature was something I did not use and Im guessing was done to reduce weight. They also removed the rope at the end that was used to stake the ground mat and tent together. Oddly, this has frustrated me more than anything. Being able to stake these down helped keep everything in place when setting up the tent. Not having these causes the ground mat to shift during setup and I found myself repositioning it several times. I will be adding a loop to these for my next camp.

    One change that I really like is the door. They made it slightly taller and it opens on the unstaked vestibule side. This makes getting in and out much easier.

    The new bends in the poles were nice for interior height. I never really had an issue with the limelight but I don't spend a lot of time in my tent when I'm not sleeping. A minor annoyance with the change is that if I decide to reduce weight from stakes sometimes i will tie the guy lines to the 4 corners of the tent. It helps to tighten the rain fly and isn't optimal for a really big storm but is effective. With the Tungsten angle change the lines rub on the tent now. As with any thing rubbing over time there will be some damage so I probably wont be tying off that way any longer with this tent.

    Overall, I still really like this size tent. I am 5'9" 210lb guy and generally use this for me solo with my gear for my son's scout camps. It would also work well for a couple and a dog (after he has been tent trained). I recently backpacked with this tent for a weekend trip. At 5lbs 15oz it wasnt a hindrance and packed down well. If i went on a longer trip and need more room for clothes, water and food it would have been nice to have a smaller packed tent but this worked well for the weekend.

    Marmot makes a great product and that is the reason I continue to buy from them. With a few slight tweaks my Tungsten will become my go to tent. So far I am pleased with it.

    Tungsten vs Limelight 3p

    is the ceiling completely mesh and see through, or are there some solid sections that would obstruct a stargazing view?

    Does the tent include a gear loft and footprint?

    how many guy lines/points are there that can be staked? is the included footprint a separate item or built in?
