SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Space Wing 2 has one door and a maximum center height of 4' 8, which is a tiny bit bigger than the average height of the 204 different 2 person tents we have studied. With 50 square feet of space inside, it is considerably larger than some other 2-person tents, and it easily offers enough room for you and, another camper throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents like this one often make a really nice choice for people that prefer spending heaps of hours outside exploring the great outdoors.

Many of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances lightweight, making them simple to carry around. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, 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 recommended.

Dome tents are the most common of all the various types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the rain to pool on the roof. The simplest dome tent should have a square footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Below you can browse an account of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Tons of Headroom. With 5% more headroom than similar-sized tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  2. Internal storage. It is good to see Marmot has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your things.
  3. 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 rips and punctures. Also, the material has a 2000 mm waterproofing rating, which is pretty good for most circumstances.
  4. Includes FootPrint. It is quite rare to see a footprint included with the tent. It is strongly suggested to always use a footprint, so not having to buy one is a plus.
  5. 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 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy rain.
  6. Low price. It is a great deal for a 2 person dome tent that provides this much room. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $199.00 info_outline

CONS

  1. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the rain etc, you must store them inside the tent.
  2. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures website the last time we checked.
  3. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have lots of qualities to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

In case you just happened to arrive on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this model previously, it is probably a good thing to look at some more comparable tents.

Value for money: When considering value for money, this tent is a more competitive than the usual price of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have studied, this alone does not make it excellent value for money. We also need to think about other areas in detail, as we do for every tent.

When we measure the ratings of an individual tent, we scrutinize a lot of things, searching for things where the tent could excel against other comparable tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with a total rating of 4.3 and the price details above, It is simple enough to observe that with a ticket price of $199.00 info_outline Marmot's Space Wing 2 is a great buy and fabulously competitively priced when compared with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and space the tent offers were not compromised to get a price tag well below the usual price for similar tents. It could make a very good choice for most campers looking for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to go camping with, that will serve you well for years to come.
