    Trail-ready toughness.

    Tough as nails and roomy as hell, the Marmot Tungsten 2p 2-Person 3-Season Tent will be your go-to backpacking tent when durability is a must. Utilizing Marmot's space-optimizing Zone design, the Tungsten has an efficient living space that utilizes pre-bent sleeping zones that create vertical side walls for a spacious feel once inside.

    Two D-shaped doors allow for either person to easily enter or exit the tent without disturbing the other, and vestibules on either side of the tent allow for plenty of dry storage space for gear and packs. Sturdy Velocity HD poles withstand howling winds when you're hunkered down in exposed terrain, and the robust fabrics are treated to repel downpours. Marmot also included a footprint that allows you to set up using just the fly, poles, and footprint to create an ultralight minimalist shelter during light and fast missions.

    • Sturdy, spacious shelter with a trail-worthy weight
    • Zone construction creates a roomier sleeping area
    • Waterproof fly and floor keep rain and water at bay
    • No-see-um mesh maintains airflow while keeping bugs out
    • Footprint included for a fast-pitch option
    • Color-coded Easy Pitch clips, poles, and fly for quick set up
    • Lamp Shade pocket secures headlamp for ambient lighting
    • Interior pockets for small gear organization
    • Item #MAR014C

    Great Tent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This tent is fairly light and only takes a few minutes to set up and take down. During the last trip I took we encountered some extreme wind and rain but I never worried about the tent breaking. Definitely happy with my purchase.

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After a miserable night borrowing my dad's low profile one-person backpacking tent where I felt like I was going to die of poor ventilation and claustrophobia, I did my research and order myself this guy as a 1p. It's awesome. Easy, simple set-up with two poles on the outside (crucial for cold, late nights setting up camp by headlamp), and the awesome extra space for my head. I loved it so much that I bought a two-person for camping/backpacking with an extra person (or car-camping solo). My boyfriend (6'2") and I (5'5"), both slender and athletic, fit comfortably. The outside vestibules were great for storing gear, as there wasn't room for much else inside. We were a tight fit, but very comfortable. Perfect for backpacking or short trips.

    Exactly what i was looking for

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very lignt and easy setup i got this tent to pack on motorcycle packed size fits well strapped behind passenger seat and tent has plenty of room for 2 when setup

    Join for the poles broke first use :(

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

    Absolutely love the tent however we had it shipped to Australia and on the very first use the poles joining bracket fell apart...its taken months to get a replacement and worried it is a design flaw and will break again

    Hands down best tent under $200

    TL;DR: Backcountry is awesome and so is this tent. Buy one, and buy it here.

    Full Version: I bought the Marmot Limelight 2P from this website and have been impressed with not only the customer service Backcountry provides (my CSR is Chris) but also have been stoked with the tent itself. My background with camping is mostly hand-me-down or surplus military gear, and I spent a lot of time in the field while I was in the service myself. Compared to what I know tents *can* weigh, this thing is solidly what I would call "lightweight" camping at its finest, though not ultralight--it weighs more than some UL 3 person tents and takes up more space in a pack than a true UL Tent, as well. However, what it does have is a whole lot of upside for a comparably low price. The material is thicker on the fly, floor, and footprint which lends itself to a more durable feel than some UL setups I've seen. It sets up within minutes, the rainfly is great (the eyebrow pole is a huge plus), and the amount of space this thing has for a two-person backpacking tent is insane. The interior space is made even more roomy and useable with the bent pole design. I have to admit, at first I thought it was a gimmick but it does really make the inside feel much roomier than it has any right to feel. Of course, a footprint being included in the price is a huge plus--though I have to say the footprint itself is a smidge larger than it really needs to be. The ventilation is adequate with the rain fly closed and amazing with both vestibules open, even in the Arkansas Summer. I love this tent so much that I have decided to purchase the 1P Tungsten for solo treks and hunting trips. If that doesn't impress upon you how great a product Marmot has with this tent series, I don't know what would.

    So far so good

      Got this little tent for backpacking either me and the pupper or me and a gal pal. It says 2 person but when i set up the tent in my yard there would be no way me and the 6ft2 hubs would fit. This is great for 2 smaller women. I went this weekend with a friend we are both under 5"4 and it was us and my 16lb mini husky. We fit just fine! I was warm and kept my side of the tent door open and she closed hers. Dual doors a plus when im peeing every hr and not having to climb over a sleeping body. The fly was nice as it provided an overhand to store stinky boots and bags. Loved that i could prop one side open for additional venting. 2 compartments for stuff and a little hook at the top to dangle a light or whatever. Only used it once so 4 stars for now until i test it in wind and rain.

      Pro-light. I carried the tent, my bag, pad, water, all the food/cooking acoutremants etc and my bag didnt feel like i was about to fall over. Doable for my small frame and strength. Would reccomend for other small peeps. Also--its basically the easiest tent to put together. Which is nice if its windy or the weather turns to pot, took less than a few minutes. And it has a footprint!

      So far so good

      The Tent For Me!

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

      After searching high and low for a few weeks, I believe I found the tent for me. I wanted a roomy 2 person that came with a footprint and gear storage that could be used for backpacking but didn't need to be crazy light or break the bank. After setting this up in the yard I am pretty stoked on it. Really easy to set up and take down and it's very roomy inside. I'll post a picture with and without the fly. For any more questions on this tent reach out and I'm happy to help!

      I have its good.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I stuff the tent in a stuff sack with the fly and footprint it comes with. I can get it down to 8x6 packing the poles and steaks separate. keeps dry inside and has nice bivy coverage. great ventilation and space.
      This is a two person tent and if solo a great car camping tent for backpacking its great for two. spacious.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This tent is awesome and it is my favorite to recommend to customers as well..
      1) great price point
      2) decently light weight for intermediate backpacking
      3)marmot has never failed me
      4) love the mesh walls for optimal nature viewing
      5) two doors
      6) footprint included

      I've had this tent for about 4 years now and it is still in great condition. Sometime the zipper catches, but nothing major.

      The tent is extremely easy and fast to set up, and the rain fly as well. The stakes are not good quality, all of mine have bent over time due to using rocks as hammer to nail down the stakes in hard dirt. I am looking in to replacing the stakes soon.

      The only time the mesh walls have been a problem is when I am trying to change in my tent. Other wise its great for star gazing and waking up to a view. The two doors are fantastic when doubling up in the tent so you dont have to crawl over your partner to get to your side.

      Got this tent for my 13 year old sister and she can easily set it up!

      Great addition: footprint included!!!

      Unanswered Question

      Is this the newer or older model? The packed size matches the older but the vestibule size matches the newer.
