  • Summary: Did you attach the rainfly? The tent is meant to allow ventilation but the fly is meant to be attached for if it rains.

  • Summary: The stakes were useless in the warming snow last weekend, no matter how much we tried to pack the snow with our skis/shoes. We were just not able to anchor the tent down except on a couple points. My Walrus does well in the snow even when some stakes get worked loose so I never thought I should get long snow stakes. That is MY FAULT... not Marmots. The rain fly seemed high around the tent allowing wind to creep in.

  • Summary: I live in San Francisco, half way up a pretty steep hill (rated at 6.3% by the city's Public Works Department) and by choice do not own a car. I am also close to 60 years old and though fit, have the usual age related problems. I don't mind the walk so much as lugging bags up the hill. I would get bruises on my fingers from the bag straps. It's the same problem with canvas shopping bags.

  • Summary: I just used mine for this first time in Seward and absolutely love it!! We had good weather so it wasn't a thorough test but this is a well-made tent. I love that the poles don't slide through annoying pole sleeves, they clip in. There are two huge vestibules to store all of your stuff out of the rain. Set up is very fast and easy.

  • Summary: I love this backpack! I might be disgracing it by using it for strictly school at this time but it's so awesome and I can't wait to use it this summer for what is really should be used for.

  • Summary: 4 Personally I think this bivy gives me exactly what I need. Its "bomber" in the wind. I had no problems when the lows reached mid-20's and winds at 60mph + in the Gila National Forest. I had condensation once and it wasn't too bad but I did not have the foot box raised. My advice to most is get down a routine of how you want to bed for the night because once I'm in, I want to stay in. I also drag (Even on Lava Rocks) my Exos 58 that dubbs as my pillow etc.

  • Summary: You can close the two vents near the ground but the mesh at the top of the tent body and the doors cannot be closed off. Closing the lower mesh vents off makes a big difference, however, in cold and windy weather while still minimizing condensation via the upper mesh. I have this tent and love it.
