Marmot EOS 1 - a lightweight tent
At under 3 pounds, this freestanding tent offers a super-lightweight, comfortable and spacious one-person shelter. The canopy is made from lightweight nylon rip-stop with the use of extensive mesh for ventilation. The lightweight, durable nylon rip-stop rain-fly has a silicone/PU coating for waterproof protection and UV resistance.
The DAC Featherlite® aluminum poles, light and strong with no inserts, are less susceptible to failure than some others. The integrated, lightweight hubs give a strong geometric pole design, with the advantage of lower overall weight.
Strong, versatile Stake-TapeTM allow adjustability when setting up the tent. The Window WeldTM inset gives views to the outside, lets in light, without a big increase in weight. Key locations on the rain-fly are reflective so one can easily locate the tent in the dark. Integrated pockets on the inside of the tent keep small items off the tent floor.
Marmot's attention to detail includes locking pole tips and silicon-treated, smooth-operating zippers with jingle-free nylon zipper pulls. Stuff sacks, stakes, repair fabric, pole repair sleeve, guy cord, and sliders and buckle are included. The vestibule provides a protected storage area for boots and a pack.
The average minimum weight specification is for the tent, rain-fly, and poles only. For a bare-bones, ultra-light setup, consider using only the footprint (sold separately) with the rain-fly.

Use the nylon footprint underneath your Marmot EOS 1 tent to protect the floor from wear and abrasion. It is sized to prevent pooling of water under tent during wet weather. The footprint can be attached to the EOS 1 rain-fly (without the tent body) for fast-and-light backpacking
