Marmot Aeolos 2P Tent Review
A Backpacker's Best Friend

A backpacker's best friend, the Marmot Aeolos 2P tent is lightweight, rugged & practical! Read our Marmot Aeolos 2 person tent review to learn more

Technically the Aeolos is a three-season tent--but it'll keep you dry even into the snow season -- it's that versatile.

You'll pay about $339 for this tent. For the money, though, you'll be hard pressed to find a backpacking tent that offers the same spaciousness and performance characteristics.

Marmot Aeolos 2P

Backpackers and campers who like to travel light marvel at how quickly and easily this tent goes up (check out user reviews at or MooseJaw to see what we mean!) It uses a stay-put, knee-pole system that facilitates an amazing space-to-weight ratio, resulting in steeper walls.

Other features include:

  • Two doors and two vestibules
  • Bare-bones setup option
  • Waterproof windows in the rain fly

Wherever you like to hike and camp, from the high desert to the coast, the Marmot Aeolos 2 person tent will see you through nine months out of the year -- maybe longer.

With the right cold-weather sleeping bag, you can expect to stay cozy even in 20, 25-degree temps.

Marmot Aeolos 2P Tent: Advantages

Another View of this 2 person tent

Rather than have to step over your tentmate when nature calls in the middle the night, you each get your own door.

Similarly, two vestibules allow you to store your gear separately, too. This is big in the morning when you're getting ready to haul out -- you don't have to trip over each other.

And together with the optional footprint, it's easy to make the Aeolos 2 person tent a bare-bones rain fly/tent pole shelter when the weather is warm.

You can also add an optional gear loft to store some of your stuff above your heads.

Marmot Aeolos 2P Tent: Disadvantages

About the only knock on this backcountry shelter extraordinaire is its price. For serious hikers, though, it's not a lot to spend, especially considering its comfort, interior space and easy setup.
