This review of the Marmot Tungsten UL 3P Backpacking Tent focuses on a new, lightweight, 3-season, stand-alone version of the popular tent, redesigned for walkers.
Tent Marmot Tungsten UL 3P.
Key features and benefits
- It’s very easy.
- An affordable price.
- It’s universal.
- Eyebrow post.
There are different versions of this tent, and it’s easy to confuse them. The keywords in the name are UL. This means ultra light, so actually it is a very light version, developed forbackpackers. You can understand it when you compare it to the old Marmot Tungsten 3P tent, which is much heavier.
This new version has a track weight of 4 pounds of 1.3 ounces (1850 g) and a 4 pounds of 5.5 ounces (1970). This high weight is due to very thin materials, see specifications below.
If it is suitable for walkers, this tent is also suitable for all other outdoor activities, and I mean that literally.
Tent with a fly, a twisted drum.
It is a two-door freestanding tent with two atriums and for seasonal use with three. The floor is a construction cut into the knee with joints above the floor, see picture above The whole body above is just a mesh fabric that is good for ventilation and weight loss.
The pole segments are pre-bent, and this is different for different areas, so you have in the sleeping area that are different from the other segments. It offers extra space inside. The clips are also strategically placed for more volume. The same goal is a post with eyebrows that has been added to the standard X-shaped post design. This crossbar raises the side walls and makes them almost vertical.
The fly is completely covered, the fabric is waterproof polyester that does not stretch or sag when wet. It is also designed to protect against UV damage and is colour-coded so that you don’t get confused when you put it in your tent. It comes with two integrated fans, so ventilation shouldn’t be a problem.
If all you need is a tent to protect you from insects or snakes, you can leave the fly at home and take shelter in an ultra-light shelter. This is the advantage of this two-layer structure. The fly is a separate and detachable part.
It’s a half-open lobby. There is room for transmission and it is always possible to enter.
In both corners there are pockets for headlights that produce ambient light. They also have mesh pockets in each corner for small items, very handy to keep track of things.
Like I said, all the materials are thin to touch. Printing is therefore not included in the price, but can be ordered separately.
