Why We Like The Tungsten Tent

When we plan on spending days pedaling rolling roads, we pack along Marmot's Tungsten Tent. The shorter folded pole length slips easily inside our panniers, while the strategic clip placement gives us extra headroom for when rainy days have us reading rather than riding.

  • Solution-dyed fabric reduces water waste in manufacturing
  • No-see-um mesh canopy allows airflow without letting bugs in
  • Color-coded clips and poles for quick and easy setup

Overly heavy

Tent seems well made but is definitely too heavy for what it is - probably because it's made from polyester instead of nylon. It is also very flimsy so probably will be a terror in wind especially if you can't manage to reach under the fly to attach the Velcro straps to the poles.

Great tent!

I've used it several times

I bought this tent to trek Torres del Paine the O circuit. I experienced many different climates and there were nights that the wind was just unbearable. However, the tent held on strong, it was semi light weight and extremely easy for one person to put up even with the windy weather. It was affordable and I am so happy I chose this tent for my trek. Highly reccomend.

Im very pleased with this tent

I've used it several times

The most extreme occasion that ive used this tent so far was when i camped by a lake where temp got down to 16F at night. I left the vent at the roof open and also left the top zipper in the rain fly (the zipper next to the door zipper) half open. In the morning the outer side of the tent was entirely covered with frost but i didn't have any frost or ice on the inner mesh. I accidentally had left my backpack in the vestibule in a way that only half of it was actually in the vestibule and that half was covered with frost but the other half did not have any frost on it. The only thing that i do not like about this tent is that foot print does not stay attached to the poles or the tent once the tent is fully set up. The reason is that the size of the foot print is slightly bigger than the size of the tent. If u wanna move ur tent once uve set it up (before uve staked it) the foot print flys off.

Fairly Ordinary Tent But A Good Value

I own quite few tents from many brands, including Marmot, but have been looking for a small, freestanding 1 person tent/bivy shelter for use in the shoulder season in tight spots near treeline. There are many options out there but they are usually ultralight manufacturers and are very expensive and made with thin, delicate fabrics. The Tungsten 1P is a pretty solid overall model and I was pleased to fit in it with some space. (I am 6 ft 3 in tall). It is the usual solid contructionI expect from Marmot but had several disappointing features about it. First and foremost is the weight. It is advertised at 3 lbs 9 oz but my official measurements had it comfortably over 4 lbs with everything it came with. Even ditching the footprint that is really heavy for a 1 person freestanding tent. I have many 2 person tents in this weight range. Second issue was the amount of mesh. I specifically chose this model over the ultralight version because I'm using for shoulder season and wanted less mesh. The pictures so a nice high fabric front on the door/vestibule side, perfect for what I wanted, but the back wall opposite the door is all mesh down to the bathtub floor. Considering how heavy it already is I'm sure that is why this was chosen but it was not what I was expecting. The third issue I found was that the fabrics of the body and fly are quite baggy and sag unless you have a really taut pitch, which can be an issue depending on the type of ground you pitch it on. I think this will be particularly problematic on the all mesh back wall. The fly rests right on it and I suspect will let moisture through. This could have been alleviated or prevented with a short cross pole at the top, which adds some tension and better headroom. This is becoming a common feature on most new 1 person tents but is lacking in Marmot models. So all in all a well made tent and a good value but some of the design choices are disappointing and the weight could be an issue for many people. If weight is an issue and you'll be using the tent in warmer weather the ultralight version seems to be worth the extra money.

Light and not a drop of water inside during rain

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So far, so good. On my first trip out with the Tungsten 1 person tent, it rained pretty heavily in the middle of the night and not a drop of water inside. It is a super small tent, but that's to be expected for such a light backpacking option.

Good fit for 6', heavier than expected

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to go to Iceland camping with some expected winds. My Nemo Hornet lightweight may not be strong enough. I am happy with it's expected durability; but feel a little in the heavy side for this extra durability. The rain fly doesn't stay away from the tent even with the ties staked into the ground assisting. I do like the pocket at my head and smaller pocket in the roof. The included ground tarp is very nice that fits the right size for the tent.

Awesome Tent Purchase

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently completed the 20 mile Manistee River Loop Trail and spent two nights in this tent. I have absolutely no regrets about this purchase as the tent performed flawlessly. It is incredibly easy to set up/take down within minutes, had plenty of room for me inside and for my backpack in the vestibule, and there was adequate ventilation with no condensation despite the nights being cool. Best of all, the footprint is included so there is no additional expense for this important component to help protect the floor. All in all, I am extremely pleased with my Marmot 1p Tungsten Tent!

Great Value

I've used it several times
5' 11"

Great tent, tried it out several times in different conditions, held up great in light snow and rain, struggled a bit when wind is over 40 mph, started to bend and flex but didn’t break. One of the best tents for the price on here. The vestibule is the perfect size for a 65 liter backpack and shoes. The quality of the poles is great for a completely free-standing tent. I do wish you could set it up rainfly first but you can’t ask for it all when it comes to this kind of value.

Reliable Tent At A Fair Price

This tent is not the lightest tent you could possibly buy, and being polyester ripstop requires DWR treatments to maintain its waterproofing, but it is still a great tent. I have pitched this tent in all kind of places, from car camping, to the highest points int he rockies. I used this tent during a two day thunderstorm near a summit and never had an issue with wind or rain. Being freestanding it easy to pitch on a varying types of terrain. The tent can be further secured using either pegs, or rocks to hold down the guy lines. The guy lines are also reflective at night. Inside there is a fair amount of space and the tent does not sag onto your face or feet if pitched correctly. There is a small pocket in the top corner that fits my headlamp perfectly at night and provides good light across the tent. There is also a hook in the top middle of the tent, and a traditional pocket by the entrance. The vestibule is a good size if you like to put your water, boots, or other gear outside your tent at night. The bathtub in this tent is also great, it wraps up far enough that there isn't concern about water getting over and in, although I would still suggest a mat that keeps you off and away from the ground. Like most standard tents this also includes a patch kit. Zipper draw strings are easy to use in good and bad weather. The small details in this tent are appreciated. There is a lot of value in this tent for the price.
