Marmot Aura 2-Person 3-Season Tent

The Marmot Aura 2-Person 3-Season Tent's unique three-pole design and steep walls increase living space, so you have more room to play cards when you're waiting out a storm. You won't be worried about your backpacks or boots, because they're protected under the large vestibule. Who cares if its 80-degrees while it's raining? The Marmot Aura Tent's well-vented upper helps you stay cool in the clammiest of conditions. You can also set up the canopy with the Aura footprint (available separately) to shave this shelter's weight to mere ounces for trips where every little bit counts.

Bottom Line: The Marmot Aura Tent keeps you comfortable during your stay in tent city.

The closest I've been able to find out was 1lb 11oz. I haven't actually stuck it on the scale but I got that weight from a very reliable source!Hope that helps.

Marmot Aura 2 is a keeper

By:
June 20, 2008

I have to be honest: I purchased this tent because the Black Diamond Firstlight was not in stock. The Marmot Aura 2 was my second choice, only because it was about a pound and a half heavier than the Firstlight. I had plans to return it after a backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon and after the Firstlight was in stock. But the Marmot is a keeper. Sure, a pound and a half can be a lot more weight if you have trimmed the weight in your pack and need or want to trim more. When you decrease the weight of a tent significantly, something is going to suffer--or you're going to have to be willing to sacrifice some benefits and/or features. Here are the pluses and negatives. Yes, the Aura 2 is a two-person tent, but it is a bit snug. And with two people in the tent, you're not going to get your packs in there with you. However, the Aura 2 vestibules (two doors, two vestibules--nice!) provide adequate space for all of your gear. The Aura 2 proved itself to be tough in the wind, repel water well--and it breathes nicely. No condensation problems, which seems to be an issue for the Firstlight, according to other reviewers. The setup took me a bit longer to figure out (longer than I expected), but the second and third setup times were significantly faster. While heavier than the Firstlight, the Aura 2 is, feature for feature, still lighter than many other two-person tents. I have high praises for Marmot gear; the Aura 2 is no exception.
