Marmot Zonda - Camping Tents: Reviews

LONG AND LIGHT

A single pole arcs the length of the Zonda, acting like a spine to give it strength. Two shorter brow poles complete the structure and create a decent amount of headroom (39 inches), while the Zonda's 100-inch floor length (many two-person tents are about ten inches shorter) provides ample room for sprawling. Even a tester well over six feet tall had plenty of room to sleep and stash gear on either end of his bag. 4.3 lbs; marmot.com

Bonus: The pre-cut slits in the webbing at each corner of the tent (used to stake it down) are the best we've seen. Not only do they save weight; they also make setup easier and faster.

Bummer: The tent would be more livable with a second door and a few more inches of width.
