    Tungsten Tent: 3-Person 3-Season

    When you and a couple of friends are ready to lay your heads down after an arduous hike into the backcountry, you'll be glad you have the spacious and sturdy Marmot Tungsten 3P Tent to crawl into. 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.

    Zone construction creates vertical walls that increase sleeping and storage space without adding bulk, relieving you of the cramped conditions that most backpacking tents offer. 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. Sturdy Velocity HD poles withstand howling winds when you're hunkered down in exposed terrain, and the robust fabrics are treated to repel downpours.

    • Sturdy and spacious shelter for backpacking trips
    • 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
    • Color-coded clips, poles, and fly for quick set up
    • Lamp Shade pocket secures headlamp for ambient lighting
    • Interior pockets for small gear organization
    • Footprint included
    • Item #MAR014D

    Awesome Tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This tent is fantastic and a great value. Sleeps 2 adults and an 80lb golden retriever very comfortably with plenty of room for all of our gear too. The set up is very easy, but the instructions that come with the tent are not the greatest. You can find video instructions online that make it super easy (it’s also fairly self explanatory). The one amazing experience I had with this tent was camping on a bald in strong winds with up to 50-60 mph gusts and the tent felt so incredibly secure...I didn’t worry about it at all.

    Worth every penny

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

    I’ve used lower end tents in the past and they never really held up. The quality and durability of this tent compared to bargain tents is night and day. It is extremely easy to set up and has plenty of room for 2 adults and gear. There is no substitute for quality. This is an awesome tent.

    Great buy, well worth the money.

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

    Easy setup, very sturdy build, roomy interior, and lightweight. This is a top-notch piece of gear. The male pole-ends threw me off for a second but I figured out how they secure at each corner. You won't be disappointed.

    SWEET tent

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

    I've only used this tent a couple times, but immediately I could tell how well built it is. Have not been in rain yet, but being in the Great Northwest, it will happen soon... I can update afterward, but from the look of the quality seams (totally sealed) and materials it shouldn't be a problem... I have used it with my 9 year old son and in moderate to warm weather so far and it vented very well, even though I decided to put the rain fly on just for safe measure. Easy to set up and stays taught when you use the well placed guy lines and stake points. Nice vestibules and two door design.

    Perfect for anything, I own two

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is without question the most versatile and well-made tent I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Perfect for two people with room for your gear and even your dog to snuggle up at your feet. I originally purchased this tent two years ago and since then have taken it on multiple car camping trips, music festivals, and several backpacking trips including a 2 night run of the Pemigewasset Wilderness Loop in the beautiful white mountains of New Hampshire. Although it is slightly heavier than what most would prefer for a lightweight multi-day backpacking trip of a 30+ mile loop I had absolutely no complaints and on the second night even through heavy rains and winds we stayed perfectly dry including our gear stored just outside of the doors. After multiple experiences with this tent I will never own another tent not made by this company, I love it so much that during a backcountry sale I purchased a second one of the same model and now I use my first one strictly for music festivals (as anyone who attends them knows, sometimes things get a little crazy and tents can get a few holes in them.) Bottom line is after well over 100 miles of backpacking a dozen or more car camping trips and several music festivals this tent still performs like the day I originally got it, without so much as a single tear or even discoloration. Anyone looking for the perfect tent for two people that’s versatile enough to use for everything don’t hesitate and get this tent! And if you are trying to shed every ounce possible to really put some miles on the trail, they even make an ultralight model that shaves about 9 oz. off of the overall weight

    Perfect for anything, I own two

    Terrific Choice

      Read the reviews, compared pricing, and watched videos of different brands. Bought the Marmot Tungsten and went camping. We even showed up to camp site without first doing a trial run in the yard. Tent was as advertised and perfect. We experienced wind, rain, cold temperatures , and even some morning dew. Tent stood up to all of it!

      Love this tent

        As an experienced hiker and backpacker I was looking for a lightweight and reliable tent. This tent is very easy to set up, I've done it myself in less than five minutes in the pitch dark.

        simply awesome

          this tent has served me well so far on a few camping trips. its big enough to fit a twin mattress in which is cool, maybe even a full size. its super comfortable for 2 people along with room for backpacks and gear inside. it held up against the strong winds when camping in the dunes at White Sands and is incredibly easy and fast to set up. the warranty offered by marmot is also very reassuring the product should last. it also looks really cool in my opinion.

          Love it!

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

          I had been looking for a comfortably sized 2 person tent for quite a while, like in 10 months a while (Yeah, I tend to over think things). Anyway, I love this tent. It was so simple to set up and take down. The dimensions stated were spot on. I had no issue unzipping or zipping the tent doors with one hand. This is my first tent with a full rainfly and boy do I like that. My son and I took it out for an overnight in Kisatchie National Forest and we had plenty of room for the both of us and our gear. A line of moderate rain showers moved in early the next morning and we kept dry. The fly remained taught and it was easy to shake of the rain water off before packing it up for the trip home (I did set it up inside my shop to let it fully dry out before storing it away). After seeing how this tent handled the moisture versus another tent next to us with a nylon fly, the extra ounces are worth it for me. I do plan on getting into backpacking and don't think it would be too much weight for the amount of room I would have if I am on my own and if backpacking with my son or another person, it's easy enough to split the weight. Then again, that may give me a reason to buy the 1 person version :-)

          Love it!

          Best tent

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I LOVE this tent!!! Just used it for 2 months on a road trip. Love that you can leave the top off on warmer nights and see the stars. It was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I and our cat too! Fits a queen air mattress with some space on the side for shoes/backpacks. Stayed dry in rain, blocks a good amount of wind.

          No regrets!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I love tents so much! It's kind of a problem I have. Anyway, I was in the market for a good three person tent that could actually fit three people, or potentially me plus three little kids. I now have about 20 nights in this thing and I love almost everything about it.

          Being 6'3" I really appreciate the steeper side walls that this has. I almost get aroused when I can just clip the rain fly onto the corners instead of staking them out independently, such a time saver! I also love that most of it is mesh and it includes a footprint! When looking at good 3-man tents I feel like you have three options: 1-buy something crappy, 2-buy this, 3-buy something ridiculously expensive to save an extra pound. For where I'm at, this is a no brainer.

          The only things I would change would be to add a vent to the opposite side on the fly, it only has it on one side. Also, the bag it comes in is weirdly big, not a huge deal, I just wish it were a nice little cinch-style bag so you could pack it in the bag and have it be small. Overall, it's been amazing, no condensation on the inside, plenty sturdy, and very roomy. My favorite tent to take backpacking, even when I don't need all the space.

          Best bang for buck!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This tent is fast and easy to pitch up and holds up to rain pretty well. I also have an Exped Megamat Duo and it fits inside it but you are not going to have much room in the tent, unless that is okay with you. I do not spend much time in the tent except to sleep and only having room for my oversized sleeping pad is fine with me. I do not think I would take this backpacking; I have a MSR hubba hubba, which is much lighter and packs down smaller. I would recommend this if you were to divvy all the tent gear up between your friends or family. Sleeps enough for three. Two people would be very comfortable and the included footprint is sweet!

          Misleading Measurements

            I needed to find a mid-range tent for float trips that would accommodate my Exped Mega Mat Duo, which measures 77.6 x 52 inches. Interior space for the Tungsten 3P is listed at 90x66x46 inches, which should have allowed for just a bit of space to move around and be able to inflate or deflate the mat, as needed. However, while those measurements may account for the seam to seam size of the floor, what is a bath tub floor design just allows for the mat itself without any tiny bit of usable space either at the sides or ends. So keep this in mind if you're considering this tent and are using sleeping mats. Other negative for me is the strong smell of chemicals and a sticky feel to the materials, which I've not noted on tents made by other manufacturers. Only pro was a quick assembly. It's being returned as I write this. Really wish Marmot and resellers would take an actual usable floor space measurement into account for their customers.

            I'm glad you wrote this - I am tossing up between this and the 4 person tent - and 90 x 66 seems pretty narrow/cosy already so if your 52" wide mattress was edge to edge - then I agree Marmot/resellers should list the ACTUAL usable floor dimensions (instead of bath tub seam to seam measurements!) because its really hard shopping on line for a tent!

            I've just received the Tungsten 3 person tent - the usable floor dimensions are 85" x 60" and there is no way this will comfortably fit 3 averaged sized men - it will fit myself and one other petite female - on two 25" wide airbeds - pretty much with no space in between. The weight is heavier than specced 'trail weight' at 7.2 Lbs. The foot print is narrower and shorter than the floor space and measures 55" x 80" and is not 'taught' to posts and cannot be adjusted. I'm either going to upgrade to the ultra light (same size) to reduce some weight for backpacking potential - or upgrade to a 4 person tent to allow more floor space as a roomier base camp tent, and or possibly fit a third person. Really disappointed and I spent alot of time researching and measuring out floor space to receive a tent with even smaller usable floor space!

            I measured mine first thing when it arrived, because it was crucial it be long enough to fit my camping bed. Mine measured just fine! I can't remember if the length measured in at 88" or 90", but it was certainly up there (not 77.6) and the width was as advertised. Maybe Marmot fixed the issue? I am about to use it tonight for the first time!

            Tough first day on the job

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I brought the tent to the desert for my first time using it. That night it was blasted with sandy high winds, then super heavy rain, then finished off the night with more heavy winds. the tent held up great, and was ready for a few more days backpacking right after.

            Simple and Roomy

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            This tent is all you need, easy to set up and offers plenty of room inside. The 3 person tent is perfect for two people and a weekends worth of gear. The included footprint is an additional bonus.

            Marmot Tungsten 3P tent

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            Purchased the Marmot 3P tent for a week long trip to the Boundary Water Canoe Area. We had 2 1/2 days of rain and remained completely dry in this tent. The vestibules are great for keeping packs and shoes out of the weather. Plenty of room for 2 good size men and sleeping bags.
            The tent is extremely easy to setup in a hurry.
            Totally enjoyed my experience.
            Happy Camping

            Marmot Tungsten 3P tent

              I am so pleased and happy with my purchase!! So easy to pitch and love the spacious area . I am so excited to use it on a planned sectional AT hike and check out its durability.

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

              This tent is well designed, spacious, well built, and is easy to pitch. I like how it has 2 doors, double pockets on each corner of the tent, and pockets above on each corner so you can store something like your glasses just a case if you need to wake up in the middle of the night and go to the bathroom. The vestibules also provide plenty of space for the gear of 3 people.

              Is there venting to help prevent condensation buildup?

              Great question! The entire interior portion of the tent is made of mesh, which is extremely breathable, and there should be plenty of airflow coming from underneath the rain fly to prevent any condensation from forming.
