Marmot Fortress 3P Hiking Tent Overview & Review.

– Hi, my name’s Kate, and I’m here at Tentworld Ferntree Gully to talk to you today about
the Marmot three-person Fortress four-season tent. So the Fortress series have a
lot of the same great features of the Marmot Tungsten series, but with a full fabric
canopy, so with the buttress, you actually have two D
doors, one with the half mesh on this side, which can
be closed on the inner with a full piece of material, and the other side is a full
mesh with a full solid piece of material to close it up. And just like the rest of the
Marmot series hiking tents, these also come with jingle-free zips. So the Marmot packing tents
also come with pre-bent hulls, as you can see here, which
creates vertical walls, which allows for more head
space and sleeping area. The Fortress being a four-season tent, there’s a few extra features
to allow proper ventilation. There is a zipper vent in
the top of the inner tent, as well as around the foot
area with a mesh inner so you can allow ventilation and still stop the
insects coming in and out, as well as a diffused lamp
shade pocket on both sides, which allows you to put your headlamp in, and get a diffused light
throughout the tent. At 2.89 kilogrammes, the
Fortress is very manageable for three people, or two if
you wanted a bit more space, or you can split the inner tent, the fly, and the poles amongst
the three or two of you, a very easy weight to manage. The floor space in the
three-person Fortress is 2.9 by 1.68 metres. Your floor material is a 68 denier, 2000 millimetre waterproof flooring, and the fly is a 68 denier, 1500 millimetre water head rating. Just like other Marmot products, the three-person Fortress is covered by Marmot’s lifetime
manufacturer’s warranty. So, overall, the Fortress is a
very high-quality hiking tent for both beginners and
seasoned hikers alike, so come in and see us at Tentworld for all of your hiking needs.
