Marmot Hammer 2 Tent: 2-Person 4-Season
When winter's worst comes down upon your head with the strength of a thousand Thors, there's only one thing to do: hunker down in the Marmot Hammer 2-Person 4-Season Tent and be patient. After all, Thors tend to blow themselves out eventually. Everything should pass by pretty quickly when you're holed up in the Hammer, since even the Thors' anger is no match for the 50D Trevira polyester, ripstop nylon, and silicone and PU coatings that shelter you from the elements. Apparently, Marmot made a deal with Loki to mess with Thor, because the single-wall Hammer's also incredibly breathable, so it doesn't turn into an accidental steam room, and superlight, so you don't have to compromise your objectives because your pack's too heavy. The Hammer has a removable vestibule (with snow flaps, naturally), so you can keep your gear dry or shave extra ounces, and has fully-taped seams to seal out even the sneakiest of moisture. Setup's easy, too, courtesy of an internal guy system and easy two-pole design (the vestibule requires one more small crosspiece), and Marmot even tossed in reflective points so you don't trip over your shelter in the dark. Add in small touches like jingle-free zippers and interior pockets, and you might decide to just stay inside, even after the sky's gone blue.

Winter Tents Checklist
||Quality? Thankfully, most
four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a
tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
||Don't Get Too Big! Due
to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of
a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having
more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number
||Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A
smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a
tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it),
will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes,
it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
||Convertible Tents? There
are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible
tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These
tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists
a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents
are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season
||If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead
of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent
for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's
not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
