  • Summary: When I set out looking for a tent, I had a very specific design in mind. I had used the Mountain Hardware Skyview before and it made a great impression on me so I began my search keeping that tent's specifications in mind. It's a heavy tent with nice access and highly adjustable ventilation and unfortunately, it's completely out of stock. Thanks to the similar products option on Trailspace.com, It didn't take long to find the Marmot Swallow.

  • Summary: I got this tent in 2003 and it has been a good friend. It does what the advertisements say it will do and nothing has broken or failed to work. It is easy to set up and easy to take down, keeps the wind, rain and bugs out. The interior is comfortable and doesn't drip. It is easy to get into and out of. What more can you ask of a tent? It is a little heavy, but no heavier than other tents in this class. All in all, it is a very good tent and at a very good price.

  • Summary: Just got back from trip in the Cascades... I'm dumping my fiancee for the Swallow. The tent can do it all. Camped on snow - no seepage and zipped up tight. Next night on rocks on a ridge - woke up hot cause the sun was beamin', opened the vents and windows/doors and it cooled down in a flash - went back to sleep. Rained that night - stayed dry. Only drawback is 8+ lbs., but what can you do? That's not bad for all the features.

  • Summary: I spent the night in my Swallow a couple of days ago for the first time since it arrived in the mail. I paid a closeout price for it, 2005 model, but it looks the same as a 2006. The conditions for my trip... plenty of snow on the ground, and a heavy wet snow. The day high was 37, the low that night was 23. Setting it up is easy provided you have done an initial setup at home and played with all of its features.

  • Summary: I just got this tent and I'm already impressed having not even set it up yet. The buritto sack that it comes in is really fantastic. I'll write a full review in the spring after my first time out with it in the kayak. It does replace the NF Talus 32 that I had to send back--it does not vent well in humid and/or rainy weather. More later. Expecting great things.

  • Summary: First trip: 2 Adults, 1 Child. Add 2 days of sheet rain and coastal winter winds (40+ Gusts) and normally we'd be soaked, but to our suprise we survived with only minor dampness in the interior (mainly from humidity and coming in damp..) Awesome ventilation. Second trip: 2 Adults, 1 Child.

  • Summary: state of the art ventilation. rolls royce quality. gorgeous colors--makes waking up on a cold morning easier. have never regretted our choice. two little concerns--vestibule is small, and the zip gets snagged trying to reach from inside tent to unzip vestible. but it all works out!! i won't loan this tent out--i sometimes wonder if the Lord thinks i love it TOO much.

  • Summary: I have used this tent throughout the East Coast from the Florida Keys to the Adirondacks. To keep things short let me just say this is one great tent. If you are willing to spend the money my suggestion is to stop shopping around and buy this tent. Pros: ease of setup, the most adjustable ventilation system I've ever seen in any tent (when the roof vents and the fly are adjusted properly - I've seen my tent stay bone dry on real cold nights where other tents get SOAKED),...

  • Summary: I have had this tent on numerous hunting trips. It has held up under snow, strong wind, and still been very comfortable in warmer weather. Incredibly efficient design with amazing storage space. Easy to convert and breathes very well with the fly on. Roomy double vestibules. Buy this tent, you won't be disappointed.

  • Summary: I purchased this tent because I needed a small, lighter tent for my kayak camping trips. I did not want a bivy sack so I went with a small 3+ season tent. I compared it with smaller tents from the following companies: TNF, Marmot (hoot), Mountain Hardware (light wedge), and Walrus (teramoto). I chose the Marmot tent because I liked the stablilty, ease of setup, light weight (compared to my Kelty Typhoon 4), its cool color and the convenience of the burrito sack.
