Featuring the lightest tents that Marmot has to offer, the Force series packs lots of features into a freestanding double-wall design. All three sizes—built to fit one, two, and three people—strike the ideal balance between weight, roominess, and easy setup. Extended head and foot zones maximize usable space, the twin-tip floor design increase durability, and interior pockets (including a dedicated “lampshade” pocket for your headlamp) make organizing small gear a breeze. Along with a seam-taped catenary-cut floor and full-coverage vented fly, you’ll find light-reflective points, jingle-free nylon zipper pulls, and color-coded clips and poles.
Note: This drop’s base price is for the Marmot Force 1P. At checkout, you can opt for the Force 2P (+ $20) or Force 3P (+ $60). You can also add a footprint for the Force 1P (+ $35), Force 2P (+ $40), or Force 3P (+ $45). Quantities are limited based on style.
A great pick for the solo camper, the Force 1P offers a 21-square-foot floor area with a D-shaped door and one 3-square-foot vestibule for keeping your stuff safe and dry. It weighs 2 pounds and 3 ounces (with the poles, body, and fly) and packs down small into the included stuff sack. Traveling with a buddy? Try the Force 2P, which has a 29-square-foot floor area, two doors, and two vestibules, and comes in at 2 pounds and 12.5 ounces at its minimum weight. Then, there’s the Force 3P. The most spacious of the bunch, it has a 40-square-foot floor area and weighs 3 pounds and 9.8 ounces. All three models feature a no-see-um mesh canopy and a water-resistant floor and fly.
Protect your investment with a Marmot Force footprint, available in slate gray. Rugged and moisture-repellant, the footprint is designed to find snugly beneath your tent and protect the bottom from abrasions, scuffs, and punctures.
Now one of the largest outdoor retailers in the world, Marmot started out as a small brick-and-mortar store in Grand Junction, Colorado—the brainchild of Eric Reynolds, Dave Huntley, and Tom Boyce. By the time they opened up shop in 1973, Eric and Dave had already been making prototypes of down products in their University of California, Santa Cruz dorm room for years. Their big break came in 1974, when the trio was asked to design a puffy jacket for the cast and crew of The Eiger Sanction: a Clint Eastwood film set in the mountains of Switzerland. Today, Marmot’s lineup runs the gamut from backpacks and apparel to sleeping bags and tents for camping, hiking, snowsports, alpine climbing, adventure travel, and beyond.
