Product details

Designed as a crossover tent option for those that want the ability to backpack in winter weather on occasion without purchasing an expedition tent, the Marmot Fortress Ultralight offers more protection than a beefy winter tent without sacrificing weight or ventilation. At 4lbs 3.5oz, it’s a lightweight option for two—or solo backpackers—that want more space in addition to the protection this tent provides on short trips. Key Features:

  • Mesh Zippered Doors – In warm, dry conditions the mostly mesh doors provide excellent ventilation and views, but for cold nights they can be sealed off to maximize protection from the elements and keep in warmth.
  • Closeable Vents – Adjust the temperature and air flow easily inside the tent, as well as adjust to changing weather conditions, thanks to vents that can be closed off.
  • Lampshade Pocket – Toss a headlamp in the integrated pocket to fill the tent with ambient light when settling in for the night.

This tent is extremely easy to set up, it's very durable, and it's also relatively lightweight. This tent would be great in Utah or Colorado because you can set it up in any environment, even above tree line. It can take a beating from the wind, and will also keep you very dry any storms.

A lightweight version of the notorious Marmot fortress tent, which is known for durability and performance in all weather. Weighs in at 4lb 3 oz, which is a good price for the warmth it offers. Also super roomy, and has two doors and vestibules. Marmot has a great lifetime guarantee!

Great tent, very durable. Extremely easy to set up - takes one person around 3 minutes. Seam-taped, full-coverage fly with top vent and additional guyouts for windy conditions.

At 4lbs 3oz, it's relatively light and will keep you cozy and protected. It's very roomy for one person but can squeeze in a second if you find yourself hiking with a partner.
