Ultra lightweight backpacking tent, perfect for overnights!


  • Ultra lightweight
  • Easy setup
  • Rainfly
  • Excellent price for minimal money


  • Not a tent you can change your clothes in, unless lying down

Trail weight is 1lb 12 ounces, two featherlight pole system makes putting it together a breeze. Packs up small and with ease. Rain fly also extends to make a small vestibule to store boots and pack out of the tent, but out of the rain.  

It rained the first backpacking trip I used it on and I remained dry and my gear also. Great tent for minimal money and backed by Marmot's lifetime guarantee. Very happy with my purchase of this tent!


Welcome to Trailspace, Heidi! I hope you'll keep us posted on how your tent continues to work out for you.
