The Lair uses sturdy DAC poles, sets up into a dome design,
and accommodates up to eight campers, so it’s ideal for an expedition or a family
tent. Two vestibules safely store your team’s gear and keeps it dry. There are
several adjustable vents for increased air circulation in hot climates. At
8-feet tall at its tallest point, the Lair provides plenty of room for changing
clothes. The canopy and rainfly are made of 40 denier nylon ripstop and have a
water-resistant 1,800 mm coating. The floor, made of 70 denier nylon with a
5,000 mm waterproof rating, is removable to help you lighten the load by
divvying it up among campers, or leaving it behind when there’s no need for a
full tent.

Marmot's Lair 8 Person tent, is the perfect family tent or can be used in the nastiest Himalayan weather. Make this your tent with a removable floor, removable fly, and the best pole design to make you feel safe all the time.


Marmot made the Lair 8-Person Tent for mountaineers who need a large, bomber shelter to provide a comfortable haven during base camp storms. Not only does this 8-pole tent provide plenty of stability in strong winds and heavy snow, but it also includes a massive vestibule to cover your gear as well as yourself. Marmot made the floor removable, so you don't destroy it when you have to pitch the Lair 8 Tent on rocky ground or when you just don't want to worry about spills in the kitchen. Of course, the Lair would put all those other family camping tents to shame if you brought it to the lake.


Call it a small house if you will, because it certainly will feel that way when you are reveling in the spaciousness of the 8 Person Lair Tent from Marmot.
