    Tungsten 4P Tent: 4-Person 3-Season

    Space is essential when you're sharing a tent with three other people. Marmot's Tungsten 4P Tent utilizes a volume-optimizing design to more efficiently increase livable area inside the tent. This makes the tent a great option for maximizing efficiency when backpacking with a crew, or when you just want extra space when car camping with your significant other and your furry friend.

    Sturdy Velocity HD poles withstand howling winds when you're hunkered down in exposed terrain, and the robust fabrics are treated to repel downpours. Dual doors allow you to take bathroom breaks without crawling over every member of your entourage, and dual vestibules stash muddy gear so the tents interior doesn't get soiled. Marmot also included a footprint that allows you to set the tent up using just the fly, poles, and footprint to create an ultralight, minimalist shelter during light and fast missions.

    • Spacious shelter for a whole crew or family
    • 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 clips, poles, and fly for quick set up
    • Lamp Shade pocket secures headlamp for ambient lighting
    • Interior pockets for small gear organization
    • Item #MAR014E

    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had it for over 2 years now. Very high quality, beautiful, spacious. Two vestibules and two doors are very convenient, zippers are very nice as well. I just wish it was a little bit smaller when packed, especially poles. Otherwise, totally worth it.

    Super performance in tough conditions

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have used this tent on 2 separate 10 day trips to Katmai and it performed flawlessly. On both trips we had extremely high wind coming off of Brooks Lake and the tent held up extremely well. Lots of rain and NO leaks. Top quality. Buy with confidence.

    Buy it!

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

    I've used mine twice and love it so far. Crested Butte and Pingree Park camping in Colorado. Did fine with rain. Perfect size for car camping with 2. Love the dual door access. Easy to set up. What else do you need?

    Terrible quality/customer srvc by Marmot

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

    I bought this tent a year and a half ago and used it only twice. In our second time this spring we noticed that the hooks to attach the tent to the rods had pretty much disintegrated. I am not sure what kind of plastic is used to make these hooks but they had lost their "structural integrity" in less than a year. I returned the tent for warranty repair but luck would have it USPS lost it on its way to Marmot. I hadn't insured the tent since it was defective but USPS is only offering $50 for losing it and Marmot only offers a replacement for half the retail price. I wasted hours on trying to argue with Marmot customer service that they should simply send me a functional tent (I don't need the rain fly, the floor mat or the rods - just the tent itself) but they haven't been co-operative. Marmot has lost a good customer.

    My Car Camping Tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this tent to replace my older Coleman 5-man dome tent. I use it for car camping and I couldn’t be more pleased. Very easy to pitch and take down. Much easier than my previous tent, and while a can’t stand up in it it’s quite roomy. Plenty of room for 2 people, but since my wife isn’t into camping I use it solo when I go with the guys, or when I just go alone.

    This tent stands up to bad weather wonderfully and always keeps me dry. I’ve never had condensation problems either.

    This is a very sturdy tent and comes with a great warranty from Marmot. My Coleman lasted quite a while and was still going strong. I’m fully convinced I’ll have the tent for even longer.

    If you’re going for a great car camper I would very highly recommend that you consider this one. I don’t think it’ll disappoint.

    Stars, Rain, Wind, Sun.. this tent rocks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. We love the view with the fly removed. With the fly on the vestibule keeps all of our gear out of the weather. Easy to set up, the poles are custom so hopefully we won't have to replace any. The footprint is smaller than the tent, we use a rug/tarp at the entrance to keep the sand, dirt, leaves, mud off of our gear.

    It sets up and packs up easily. Fits back in the stuff sack without a struggle. Zippers seem durable enough.

    We've used the tent maybe 15 times in summer & fall of 2017. Looking forward to many more uses and years!

    Quick setup and huge!

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

    The Tent has been great for three people or less, if you include a dog. The vestibule has ample room and allows for great protection from the elements. Love the included footprint for extra protection of the floor. Overall thrilled with the purchase, and the quick set up feature is just an added bonus!

    Loved it!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Ordered this tent as a quick set up tent for road tripping and for canoe camping.

    Ordered it and got it in no time at all thanks to Backcountry's free 2-day!!!!

    Took it out of the box and set it up with no issues. Love is much that it comes with the foot print, never understood why so many tents make them a secondary item other then to make more money. I love the 2 smaller cross bars the hel lift the walls more vertical giving so much more room inside it.

    I am 6'2" and had plenty of head and foot room. I also loved the fact that one side was like a huge mesh big screen tv while the regular tent fabric went farther up on the opposite side (this was very nice camping on Cougar Island, Ross Lake, Washington).

    I was able to perfectly fit my 2 XXL cot pads in the tent creating a memory foam floor. Perfect road trip set up.

    Took the tent up on Ross Lake for 3 nights, a little boat/canoe camping. Never had to use the rain fly, but with Ross Lakes famous winds, I was able to point then mesh towards the lake for an HD view while lying in my bag and the fabric back was to the wind blocking it nicely.

    There were 2 of us my size in there. With bags and pads, plus our gear, made it perfect for having plenty of space to organize and move around with out getting in each others way. Would have have slept a 3rd comfortably... But would not run it as a true 4 person. .

    Tear down was simple as was packing it up. The tent bag gave plenty of room to roll and go. I have had some tents where it had to be folded a perfect way just to get it bag in the finicky tent bag, not with this one.

    Over all, this is going to be my new go to tent for canoe camping and as a back up tent for road tripping when not using my RTT. Great job Marmot!!!!

    Also thank you to my gear head Karsyn A. For following up with me on purchase!!!


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

    Used in BWCA late season i.e. end of August/September = perfect!

    Pros: ez / quick set up - light weight - good ventilation - included footprint

    Cons: none

    Great for three adults with gear in rear vestibule.

    Worked with Aaron @ Backcountry who made sure this arrived on time for a last minute trip! Big thanks A-Man!


    Very nice!

      I have just gotten this tent and haven't slept in it yet, but do have some comments that would have helped me when I was making my decision.
      1) the green color is very dull and in my opinion, depressing. So sent it back for the orange. The orange makes it brighter inside on a gray day - even though it's not my favorite color for tents in that it's too bright, it's better than the very dull green which definitely darkened the inside.
      2) the chemical smell on first setting it up was not as strong as a Mountainsmith tent which I had to return immediately because it smelled like my new dolls used to smell and gave me a headache just setting it up. This Marmot did have a "gentle" chemical smell (is there such a thing?) and I was concerned about it, so I set it up on a windy day in a day-use campsite where I hung out all afternoon till sunset. The smell was gone by the time I packed it up. This tent would not be for the active MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) people, but as an almost fully recovered one, it will work.... mainly because I can't afford, for the amount I camp, a Moonlight tent.
      3) The Tungsten 4 is the perfect size for my 6x3 fold out sleeping pad from Costco along with a 21" suitcase opened out (I camp at festivals, for up to a week). Other 4 person tents were just too big, even though they had a better height for standing up. I am 5'2" and can mostly stand up to put on pants; it was the compromise I chose since I still have to bend over.
      4) It is SO EASY to set up by myself, even as a short-ish person; very intuitive. No hissy fit temper tantrums there!


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

      Took this tent on a Scouting overnight. Fit 4 boys under the age of 15 no problem. At 7 lbs, they can divvy up the tent and poles and still have alight bag to haul in. They were shoulder to shoulder but what backpacking tent isn't these days.

      Love the dual vestibule and doors. no more climbing over someone to escape in the middle of the night. WAY more headroom with the new pole design.


      So light and Easy to Set up

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      For as large as it is this tent is very light and incredibly well designed with regard to ease of set-up and optimization of space. Walls are tall enough for good access to sides and corners. Two vestibules are a real bonus and provide great space for packs, shoes, dogs etc.. Various gear pockets make organization of smaller objects much easier to find the next morning or in the middle of the night.
      It sets up very easily and with minimal questions as to how things go together.

      Really happy with this tent

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great tent for a good price. Roomy and very easy to set up and takes about 5 minutes. Used it car camping in Utah for two weeks moving almost every day and had no problems at all. It's good to see the footprint included instead of charging extra like most other tents. I would say it's too big for backpacking unless you split the load to a few people but sure is nice having extra room.

      Very nice Tent, lots of room

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

      Love this tent, very easy to put up and take down, lots of room inside. Two vestibules are nice. A vey nice looking tent. When I set this tent up everyone commented on how nice it looked. I noticed a lot of condensation on the rain fly in the morning, but we did stay dry.

      TONS of Space!

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

      Boyfriend and I needed to upgrade from our 1-2 person backpacking tent after adding a pup to the family. This tent is perfect! We've only taken it on one camping trip so far, but it is incredibly roomy. Plenty of room for two sleeping pads, pup, and bags to all very comfortably fit. The tent is super easy to put up, and the rain fly comes on and off very easily. We love sleeping without the rainfly, and luckily the weather cooperated for our first trip in this tent!! The tent is super sturdy, everything on it seems very well constructed. Even though we haven't used the rainfly yet, I love the fact that it comes all the way to the ground. Definitely can see that being a huge plus when we inevitably encounter some nastier weather! All things considered, we are SO happy with this tent. Haven't had a chance to really put it through the wringer yet, but I think we'll be very happy with this tent for a very long time!

      Unanswered Question

      I saw a review that makes it sound like it comes with a footprint for under the tent itself but not one for the vestibule. The marmot tent I currently have has a separate footprint for the vestibule section, I'm wondering if one exists for this tent?
