When we and a couple of friends are ready to lay our heads down after an arduous hike into the backcountry, we make sure to do so in the spacious and sturdy Marmot Tungsten 3P Tent. With a design that maximizes living space, this roomy tent doesn't leave us feeling like we're sharing a bivy sack with two other musky campers.

Zone construction creates vertical walls to increase sleeping and storage space without adding bulk, sparing us the cramped conditions that most backpacking tents offer. Two D-shaped doors make for stealthy ins and outs throughout the night, and two vestibules provide plenty of dry storage space for everyone's gear.
