Product details

The Fortress is a versatile two or three-person tent from Marmot. Easy setup, an adequate amount of space, a weight of just over 5lbs, and quality construction make it a good choice for both backpacking and car camping. It's light enough to backpack with but roomy and comfortable enough to car camp. Marmot is known best for making climbing and mountaineering gear to withstand some of the most extreme conditions on the planet, and they build their tents with the same quality.

Key Features:

  • Jingle-Free Nylon Zipper Pulls – These zipper pulls are noiseless so they don’t disturb the natural abeyance of your campsite or annoy you when the wind is blowing and you are trying to sleep.
  • Interior Pockets for Small Gear Organization – Small pockets on the inside of the tent are perfect for keeping your headlamp or your cell phone close at hand.
  • Lamp Shade Pocket – This pocket is specially designed to hold a light and turn a narrow beam into ambient light that illuminates your whole tent.

A 3-4 season tent that is designed to withstand the foulest weather. This 2 person, 2 door tent will be your go-to for year-round backpacking adventures. The full fabric canopy features a vent to prevent condensation build up and the near vertical walls create a spacious sleeping area with a peak height of 42 inches. Use the extra guy out cords when the wind picks up. The Fortress has a packed weight of 5lbs 5.5oz - pretty solid for a 4 season, 2 person tent!

Great for backpacking in just about any environment/weather conditions. Lightweight and small footprint for the space provided. Marmot's rigging system allows for more internal space than most 2P tents. For someone 6ft or taller, this will provide more space/comfort inside. The dome rainfly is very good at keeping water out and staying in place in windy environments.

5lbs 9 oz, spacious. Marmot makes quality tents that will last you for years and have a great warranty! This is a true 4 season tent and will be the best protection from the elements if you're out when it's snowing!

3-4 season tent that offers some spacious sleeping room (42 inches in height!). Available as a 2 or 3 person tent. There are extra guy-out cords for those windy nights and it packs at just over 5lbs so pretty good for a 4-season tent!
