PSMITTYwrote a review of Marmot Pulsar 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season on September 14, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I used the Marmot Pulsar 2 tent on couple multi-day backpacking trip in the Manistee National forest. I love how light and easy the tent is to setup! I have yet to use this tent in any heavy down pours, so I’m looking forward to seeing how it will hold up. I picked up the footprint for this tent and I always use it when I take it backpacking. The footprint provides great-added protection to the underside of the tent and keeps it clean and dry from the morning dew. I love the vent flap by the vestibule, provides great circulation for those warmer nights. My only complaint with the tent is the rain fly. I have notice that it does NOT have clips or a slot to secure the rain fly, by the T-bar on the top, to the poles! I find this to be a design flaw. Although it appears to be reinforced around the area were it’s supposed to be, it’s still hard to properly align the rain fly to the tent poles at this area. I’m not sure if my tents fly defective or if Marmot failed to think of this. Overall a great tent and I still recommend it to a friend.
