Finding yourself under siege by
wind, rain and the forces of nature? The Marmot Fortress could be your castle
away from home, a sturdy two man four-season stronghold buttressed with enough
reinforcements to withstand the worst weather attacks.
The Fortress features an
internal guy system for increased structural integrity and five sturdy 9 mm.
Pressfit poles rather than the three poles found in similar three-season
tents. The 38 sq. ft. floor area (with 10 sq ft. vestibule) includes wall and
ceiling pockets for storage and an adjustable airflow ventilator for increased
comfort. The Silicon-treated, jungle-free zippers minimize noise and risk of
icing while the locking pole tips allow for easy setup. A repair kit is
normally included should nature breach your defenses.
The Marmot Fortress weighs in
at 9 lb. 9 oz. and packs down to 8 in. x 20 in.
