User Review: Marmot Alpinist 2P
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $500
Very easy tent. Quick setup. Tough build. Short on vestibule.
- Quick dry set up even in rain
- Great vapor control
- Nearly useless vestibule
- Very exposed to rain when entering and exiting
This tent is super fast and easy to set up, even in rain. Not a drop gets inside if done properly. Great ventilation system.
The one drawback for me is the vestibule. It is very small, and provides no protection from rain when entering and exiting the tent. I'm still trying to figure out how to even keep a pair of boots out there dry. Specs say there's eight square feet, seems more like eight square inches.
A lightweight vestibule extension would take this tent right over the top. I'm working on making my own.
