Marmot Thor Tent: 2-Person 4-Season


Product Details

Have you ever spent a night leaning against your tent walls and hoping that it holds until morning' You don't have to worry if you're holed up inside the Marmot Thor Tent. This burly four-season shelter uses a six-pole structural configuration that stands strong in the face of high-mountain storms from Alaska to the Himalayas. Marmot used dual-diameter DAC poles to increase strength where needed and shave ounces where some could be trimmed. After all, you don't want to carry any more weight up the mountain than you have to, right'

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 of people.
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 use.
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.
