User Review: Marmot Alpinist 2P
Ease of Setup: Easy
Weight: 4 pounds
Price Paid: $495
I bought this "expedition tent" to keep us warm and dry. It failed on both those requirements. It was quick and easy to set up under wet conditions. Last month in June, I went camping on the Temperance river in the North Shore, Minnesota. The tent sides got everything wet even after using waterproof ground sheet as the sides at the bottom leaks.
We were freezing all night even with Thermarest mats and down bags. We finally slept after first sunlight as we had stayed awake all night.
No more Marmot tents for me! I am really surprised at the poor quality of this tent after spending 500 dollars and I trusted the market name of Marmot.
