User Review: Marmot Swallow 2P
Design: free standing -modified dome
Ease of Setup: Easy
Weight: about 6.9 pounds with fly, etc.
Price Paid: $259 on sale
I just got this tent and I'm already impressed having not even set it up yet. The buritto sack that it comes in is really fantastic. I'll write a full review in the spring after my first time out with it in the kayak. It does replace the NF Talus 32 that I had to send back--it does not vent well in humid and/or rainy weather. More later. Expecting great things.

In May I was on the upper Curent River for a week--got very cold, near 34 the first night out. The Swallow did just fantastic. The setup is easy-- very easy and very strong. The ventilation is perfect and they have seen to every detail--lots of storage inside plus the burrito bag serves as additional storage. This tent will be good for overnight trips in the kayak as well. Can't say enough about it . A perfect 10!
