SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Nighthawk 2 has two doors and a maximum center height of 3' 9, which is a tiny bit less than the average height of the 204 various 2 person tents we have examined With 32 square feet of space inside, it is a tiny bit smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, another camper throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents similar to this one are a really good choice for people that love spending loads of time outside of the tent enjoying the fresh air.

Many of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part light, making them simple to carry around. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you can do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the various sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the sloped walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the top. The most basic dome tent should have a square footprint, slanted sides a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Beneath you can find an account of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Nighthawk can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not need to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Affords you a place to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  3. Internal storage. It is nice to see Marmot has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your stuff.
  4. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. Durable, water-resistant floor. The floor material is 70d 100% Polyester Taffeta F/R, which is a substantially thick and high-strength fabric. Meaning the base is not prone to tears and punctures. Also, the material has a 2000 mm waterproofing rating, which is very good for most circumstances.
  6. Includes FootPrint. It is quite rare to see a footprint included with a tent. It is suggested to always use a footprint, so not having to pay extra for one is a plus.
  7. Breathable. The Nighthawk's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the summer.
  8. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the whole body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 3000mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy rain.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 32 square feet, the Nighthawk 2 is smaller than quite a lot of the 204 other 2 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 6% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative factor for some people.
  3. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we looked.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of attributes to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
