Description
Roomy, lightweight, and with all the measures to ensure Mother Nature doesn’t get the best of your overnight adventure, the Fortress 3-Person Tent is true to its name. The vented full fabric canopy and two half-mesh zippered D doors lock out plunging temps, while additional guy outs secure your campsite when wind gusts pick up. Keep rain from sneaking in with its seam-taped, catenary-cut floor and full-coverage vented fly. Zone pre-bend construction creates vertical walls for plenty of sleeping space and headroom for stretching out. After a long day of backpacking, color-coded "easy pitch" clips and poles make for an easy set up, and the lampshade pocket stows your headlamp for ambient light at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! Easy set up! Works great so far. We have only used it once and it was plenty warm in our 50 degree weather, I even had to be out of my sleeping bag for part of the night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Tent! Easy enough for one person to put up. The color coded tabs were super helpful and it’s great for car camping! While i didn’t encounter any inclement weather during my trip, it felt very secure when the wind did pick up. This is the perfect size for me, my dog and my gear. Like one of the other other reviewers mentioned, the vent on top not having any mesh over it seems like an odd oversight. I will probably end up modifying it as well, but it was cool enough at night to manage with just the lower, meshed one open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storm ready I really liked this tent. It's very easy to set up and take down, and it's the perfect size for me and my dog, plus it held up during the remains of Tropical Storm Isaisis when there was a tornado warning where I was camping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3P Fortress or 3P Tungsten for summer The Fortress and footprint were a gift to my some. He decided he liked the Tungsten tent because he camps in the summer and it has better ventilation. Both tents are a good value and a premium product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Tent Definitely worth the money. Withstood 50 mph winds. Our campsite was out in the open near a lake, no shade, no cover, but we stayed dry and secure when a storm rolled in. Very easy and quick to put up and take down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent all around! I bought this for a trip to Banff in October and it was perfect! Easy to set up and take down, light enough to travel with, and sturdy at night in the cold weather. Only needed to fit 2 people in it and there was plenty of room, but it would probably get pretty tight if there were 3 people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stands Up To Storms I purchased my Marmot 3-person in March 2020 and 48-hours later headed on a 3-week camp in the Cherokee National Forest, Tennessee. Bottom lines are 1) the tent is easy to setup, 2) workmanship and materials are too level and 3) the tent was tough as all get out. I wild camped up a two-track and setup in a small 2 acre bald at the top of a 4000 ft mountain. The hardwood forest was pretty messy with fallen limbs and trees and I wasn't comfortable locating in the trees in storm conditions. That proved a good decision. Rain and wind were common and there were 3 storms described below The longest stretch I was hunkered in the tent was about 16 hours. The large front vestibule worked well with a Sterno stove to heat up a meal while hunkered. The first storm began as rain, often heavy, that started in early afternoon and lasted until after daylight the next day. A severe thunderstorm hit after midnight. Sustained wind was in the 30-40mph range and peaked at about 60mph sustained with torrential rain. One thing about the Fortress is the frame moves a lot. I mean a lot! I left the fly vent open intentionally to get a feel for water blow by to the tent body. The vent was not facing into the wind and only a few drops drops made it through the vent onto the tent body, trivial. The second storm was rain and gusty winds with lots of tent movement but really no big deal. The surprise was when I was opening the vestibule up the next morning and the zipper was jammed. A few wiggles and the zipper was free and it turned out that the zipper was frozen with ice. It was a cold night but I had no idea that the rain had turned into freezing rain and the fly was encased with a quarter inch of ice. The fly vent was open and the door screens were cracked open for air circulation. Zero condensation in the tent. The third storm was the big one although the hours of rain the shortest. At midnight the storm intensified enough to wake me up and at 2am a very strong cell blew through. I've only experienced that strong a storm once before in a tent. Winds were 60 plus and I have no idea how big the plus was. It was a big plus though. The tent poles were bending to a S-shape. The ridge pole was bending and flexing up and down. The small vestibule was facing directly into the wind and my sleeping bag was along the adjacent wall. The tent wall was pushed in so much that at times, the fabric was laying across my sleeping bag. Well, the storm passed and the tent springed back to its normal tight set. In the morning, I walked the tent to see how it fared. The small vestibule had tent peg failures, all 3 tent pegs worked loose so the vestibule was not guyed out. One peg was pulled out and the other two had worked loose enough that the peg rotated so the guy loops slipped off the peg hook. One guy line was very slack and while the peg had not pulled out, it was bent. Zero damage to the tent. I was worried about tent pole damage so inspected for this when I took the tent down a few days later. The two main poles had zero damage. The ridge pole had a very slight curve to it instead of the perfectly straight as out of the box. Since the curve is symmetrical end to end, this is probably just from the constant tension it is in - I'm not worried about it. Things that could be better..... 1) I'm going to be buying some longer tri-aluminum stakes than the ones I have now so I can use these for the vestibules and the two fly bottom guyouts. All the loops for these are several inches above the ground and I want to get these stress points more firmly fixed in place. I have enough shorter tri-aluminum stakes from my old tent to handle the tent corners and guylines. 2) As others have noted, put some screen on the tent body opening below the vent. I opened the zipper door for a short while and the scoop of cooler air was awesome and just the thing to make a sunny afternoon nap more pleasent.
