Appease the mountain gods.
The Marmot Thor 3-Person 4-Season Tent has a burly six-pole design to fight off wind and snow during the roughest high-mountain storms. Designed specifically for alpine climbing and mountaineering, the Thor Tent stands strong whether you're taking on Rainer, Denali, or Aconcagua.
Marmot thought ahead to storm-bound days and gave this tent the Knees Pole System to steepen the walls and increase its overall interior space. Coated nylon keeps the tent intact through some of weather's worst offerings, while the pole sleeve/clip combination delivers a strong, sturdy, and well-ventilated tent that's easy to set up. Meanwhile, Marmot made sure that all perimeter floor seams are up and off the ground for incredible waterproof protection when you're battling the elements on high. Two large, D-shaped doors make for easy entry and exit while also opening up its flow, and the pole-support vestibule provides spacious storage for all of your gear at the end of the day.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Two months ago I bought Thor 3P and last weekend we finally took it with us outdoors. On the very first night (and because of the incident the only night) wind broke three poles and dramatically contorted the rest.
We assembled Tent with entrance directed toward the wind, stretched it to the some degree and added 8 guy lines fixed with MSR blizzard stakes and ice axes assuming possibility of wind conditions to be changed. At the morning the wind strengthened to 20 meters per second. In a ten minutes it broke one of the lateral poles and vestibule pole. Bit later, while we were packing, the third pole went broken.
I assumed it was obvious warranty case, but not. Marmot responded literally "Weather damage generally is not covered under warranty".
My bottom line is - Thor might be considered as comfortable for countryside camping (extremely overpriced), but in any case not for serious weather conditions or for mountaineering.
