Space without weight.
No matter what your relationship is with your backpacking partner, it's nice to have a little space while sleeping in a tent, especially once morning breath sets in. With its volume optimizing design, the Marmot Force 2p Tent strikes a balance between light and spacious for a comfortable sleeping and hiking experience.
The new twin tip floor design increases the overall durability of the tent by placing two additional DAC poles at either end. It also increases space within the tent by more efficiently utilizing head and foot areas. Dual doors and vestibules allow for easy ins and outs without having to roll over your partner in the middle of the night. Interior pockets allow you to stash small pieces of gear, and a headlamp pocket helps diffuse light within the tent for nice, homey feel once inside. Color coded Easy Pitch clips and poles reduce your fumble time when setting up camp after sundown, and light reflective points make finding your tent after a moonlight hike a little bit easier.

4 years and still going strong!
I've had this tent for 4 years now, and it's only just started to show its age. The only places where it's starting to wear is the tiny mesh is starting to stretch a little bit in places- which is really not a big deal at all. I've used this tent extensively throughout the northeastern US, Southeast Alaska, and California. It's super easy to set up and take down, it protects me from the elements, holds up in the wind, and really is pretty light weight on top of all that. Size-wise I think it's perfect. It's great when it's just me, but I've also shared space with people on many occasions and it's been totally fine- no you never need to snuggle to fit! Granted, I'm fairly small and female, so I can't attest how it may be sharing between two larger folks. Overall, for its weight range I think it's a pretty top-knotch tent, one that you wouldn't regret buying!

Great Lightweight Tent (1 man w/space)
This is a great lightweight tent - actual weight is correct 3# 8 oz. I also bought the footprint (must have if any moisture from ground; Tennessee backpacking). Because it's light weight; obviously have to reduce mat'l thicknesses. The zippers work fine, you just have to be careful & not treat it like a 5-8# tent. The fly zipper is the only one that wanted to get caught in the zipper cover - again, be careful. I looked at a lot of tents; 1 key thing for me was being a true stand alone (minus the door fly stake & end stake) . The rain fly connects to the base of the tent poles & doesn't touch the tent. I haven't been in a heavy rain yet so can't answer if the tent tub is high enough to prevent rain from coming in, light to medium rain is no problem. I'm 6'2", not heavy set but do have broader shoulders & 99% of the time everyone in the group takes their own tent, with the weight, this is NO problem. I will not make this a 2 "man" tent; you're shoulder to shoulder & against the edge of the tent's side tub with 2 people. It'll be fine (cozy) with my wife, but not one of my hiking buddies (unless in a "have to" situation)! I'm end to end with about 6" to spare when i'm stretched out. Summary; - 99% of the time, everyone takes their own tent - so NO issue. - great light weight & size! - Extra room for 1 person (plenty of room); really tight with 2. - Stand alone tent (minus door access stakes & 2 end stakes) - Exactly what i wanted & needed for my 4 day/3 night hikes; keep weight low. I used a friend of mine's Marmot Limelight - great tent & is a stand alone but weights between 6-7# (actual). It's also a wider (really a 2 "man" tent) & stand alone. I also used a Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 - I just wasn't willing to spend around $450 at the time

Light and Spacious
This tent is truly a 2P tent and is a great balance of weight, ease of use, and space. I have only brought it car camping, but have been very happy with it so far.
