A few weeks ago I received the Marmot Force UL 2P from Marmot to test it on my summer trips in Finnish Lapland and Norway. I was interested in the Marmot Force UL 2P as I was looking for a light 3-season solo tent which can also handle somewhat stronger winds on the Norwegian coast.


Marmot Force UL 2P review

Initial thoughts

My first thoughts were that the tent is very light but also found that one peg was missing and that a small piece of the inner tent mesh was a bit distorted. I was a bit worried that the inner tent may not survive one week in the wilderness. The fabric of the tent is quite thin and I was considering using an additional tent footprint under the tent to avoid getting holes into the tent floor. However, I decided to use the tent without the additional tent footprint to test the durability of the tent floor.

That’s how it looks like when you lie in the Marmot tent. There were plenty of mosquitoes on my trip in Finnish Lapland.
