on marmots website it lists the floor waterproofing as 3000mm but here it is 2000mm is this an older model? or posible typo?
this does come with a foot print correct?
Ann H Love this tent.
You can use it with just the tent, or just the fly alone. Set up very easy, even in the dark during a good rain! Nice to be able to set up the fly first in the rain, than the tent under its cover.
We used this tent almost every night during our 71 day bicycle tour through Europe, late Sept. into early Nov. It kept us warm and dry through near gale wind and rain in Ireland, and Scotland, and very heavy frost in France. As well as many other camping trips, and it's still going strong.
The only improvement I can think of is to give the fly a bit of an overhang at the vestibule doors, (yes, there are two) though no rain ever got, in we worried about it!
The only thing I didn't like was the bright orange color, so we just bought the same tent in green!
The price is AMAZING for something so darn good! We explored other tents before we got our new green one but this one is the same size, or a bit bigger, and includes the footprint, and the Gear Loft, which the others don't and they cost more... Go figure!
independent fly and tent
Greg N decided to go with the marmot widi heard some bad reviews about wind stability with this one and i like the ability to go more lite with fly/footprint and get winter strength by throwing the tent inside plus its about the same price
REN D Greg,
I just bought this tent. I have not yet used it, but I researched for a long time before making my decision. First, according to the Marmot website, this tent has a 2000mm waterproofing, NOT 3000mm as you say. I just checked it. Also, the tech manual for Marmot doesn't specify this factor, so no help there. I believe 2000mm is correct. According to some of the reviews I read, though, this tent withstood some severe wet & even 2" snow weather conditions, so I would think 2000mm would be sufficient, indeed. Marmot generally makes superb quality gear. Yes, this model comes with footprint and gear loft ! A good buy! I cannot find a better source for outdoor gear than Sunny Sports; their superb customer service, wide range of products, and fantastic prices are hard to beat. [No, I don't work for them, either!) I have recently purchased a tent, sleeping bag, and backpack from them because of the characteristics just listed. Happy camping! If you can do any better, I'd love to know on what planet.
Zack W It was a typo and has been updated to 3000mm, thanks for bringing this to our attention. This tent includes a Gear Loft and Footprint. Enjoy it! Zack.
