This Marmot Eos 1P review is about a lightweight and robust 3-season tent. It offers a great ventilation because the body of the tent is completely a mesh, with the addition of a completely waterproof floor and the fly.
- My rate: 8.8/10.
Best price & place to buy
- The best place regarding the price and shipping conditions is usually Amazon.com.
The term 3-season in practice would mean: lighter poles, more netting, not prolonged exposure to heavy snow and wind conditions, and this all definitely applies to Marmot Eos 1 tent.
When you choose a tent you probably have in mind some priorities, depending on the purpose. But I guess the top priority should be whether protection and security. After that come:
- easy setup in hard conditions
Eos 1 tent satisfies these criteria quite well. It is lightweight, only 2 lbs 13 oz (1262 g). This is a free-standing design: this means that poles alone support the tent and you can pitch it on any terrain.
With all walls made of mesh, you will not have problems with condensation, which adds to the comfort.
This is a double-wall type, which by definition is a good feature with respect to condensation, always a better choice than a single wall tent.
Set up for Marmot Eos 1 tent is rather quick and easy, you sill see this in the video below. You will not have a problem to figure out which pole goes where. As for durability, the construction is good but the fly is thin and should be used with care.
The tent is a bit low, if you are tall you might feel uncomfortable.
