Peeling back the tents door reveals carnage of the storm. How could your tent have taken such a pounding?

The answer is simple......

Two entrances allow access at both the front and rear of the tent. The front porch is supported by an additional pole which increases head height allows generous spare storage space. The rear porch is smaller but allows easy access when the front porch is full of kit. Both porches also include adjustable vents for added ventilation regardless of the weather outside.

Two adults and spare kit will sleep comfortably inside the Asgard 2P. Six internal mesh pockets also give adequate additional storage space for guidebooks, head torches and food. The deep bath tub construction groundsheet is fully taped and high door entrances limit grass and dirt getting inside the tent.

Storm construction also includes the clever 2-in-1 guy line systems which help equalize tension during high winds. Finally two foam inserts attached the each side of the inner tent which help tension the flysheet and ensure the inner and outer don't touch together.

If you need reliable 2 person mountain tent then it's time to get yourself Marmot's Asgard 2P tent.
