Marmot Fuse 3p Tent: 3-Person 3-Season
Marmot's Fuse 3p Tent is a combination of camping comforts with lightness for backpacking. Its fusion welded flysheet offers the utmost waterproofing for wet weather, and Marmot solution-dyed the tarp for long-lasting UV degradation. The fly also features vents to ensure breathability, and no-see-um mesh makes this tent an excellent choice in summer's warm weather. The durable floor stays strong for seasons, and a PU coating helps it resist abrasion for longevity. Designed to maximize space, the Fuse 3p has two large D-shaped doors with silent zippers and two vestibules large enough for three backpacks. This freestanding tent also features Marmot's Bare Bones Setup so you can leave the DAC NFL poles behind and rely on your own trekking poles. Internal pockets offer an organized sleeping area, and light-reflective points help you find camp after a walk at night.

Backpacking Tents Checklist
||Weight Matters! For two
people, any backpacking tent should weigh less than six-pounds...preferably
||Don't Forget the Bulk. Packing
a bulky tent sucks. Make sure it packs down tightly, ideally packing
down to about 10x20 inches (smaller is better).
||Mesh Matters. As a general
rule, the more mesh, the lighter the tent. For warmer three-season
use, usually, the more mesh you have, the better. Not only does the
mesh save weight, but also allows for better air-flow.
||Vestibules & The Rain. An
often forget detail about backpacking tents are the vestibule. The
vestibule provides a little canopy in front of your tent. Not needed
during good weather, but absolutely needed during wet weather. Try
to get one that is about 5 sq. feet large, or larger.
||Speaking of Rain... Make
sure the entire floor of the tent is waterproof. Most are, but if
the tent says the floor is just "water resistant"...don't buy it!
You'll regret it the first time your sleeping in it during the rain.
||Remember the Footprint! Virtually
all good backpacking tents also come with "footprints," which are
essentially waterproof and tough tarps cut-out in the shape of the
tent. Buy It! Not only does it enhance the tent's waterproofing,
it also protects the bottom of the tent. Yes, they aren't cheap.
But they are a lot cheaper than replacing the tent due to a sharp
stick tearing a hole in the floor of your expensive backpacking tent!
