The Marmot Thor 3P is a 3 person 4 season tent. Perhaps the Thor has the distinction of having the strongest frame on the market. It combines the frame from an 'X' frame tent with the frame from a tunnel dome creating a truly 'Bombproof' tent. The poles are top notch, DAC NSL Dual Diameter poles that save weight, provide superior strength and are above all reliable. And because Marmot has incorporated it's Knees System into these poles you get a fantastic amount of room inside the tent by virtue of the nearly vertical walls these poles provide. The Thor has 2 doors, 1 large hooped vestibule, a superlight Sil/Nylon fly, ventilation options, an included internal guy system, field repair kit and more. If you had to pick just one tent for winter or bad weather I think this would finish at the very top of your list.

  • Q:

    I see someone asked if this tent came with a groundcloth and the answer was that this tent come with a fitted footprint however I read in the specifications that the tent does not come with the fitted footprint. What does it come with the fitted footprint or not?

  • Q:

    I am looking for a 3 person tent that has enough vestuble to enable reasonable entry and exit during heavy rain without getting the tent wet. I use this for motorcycle camping so weight is not a real issue, but compactness is. I recently purchased a Sierra Design Meteor Light 3 which I am sending back as the vestuble is too small to offer the coverage I seek.

      This is considerable better in terms of vestibule coverage and entering and leaving the tent in rain. The vestibule extend further forward in the vertical plane beyond the door than the Sierra Designs Meteor light does.
