User Review: Marmot Swallow 2P
Ease of Setup: very easy, three pole design. All the poles are the same size which is nice for those who set up camp in the dark.
Weight: 8lbs 1oz
Price Paid: $349
I purchased this tent two years ago and have used it a lot in the White Mountains above and below treeline. Its claim to fame so far was a thunderstorm in August on Franconia Ridge. The Swallow won that day considering the 50+ mph winds. It's a great 3 season tent, but it can also be used 4 season (below tree line!!) because all of the mesh can be coverted by zipping over the flaps. I don't recommended this tent for alpine use in the winter because the pole design would not be able to withstand the weight of snow. I've had a lot of luck with it and recommend it to anyone who wants a three season tent that will hold up in anything.
