Marmot EOS 1P

The EOS is a 2-person sub-2kg tent that pitches very easily inner-first, thanks to all the poles being interlocked with shock-cords to form one single frame that simply clips to the inner. The outer goes over the top, and ladder lock webbing clips make adjustment very easy. To allow variable peg placements the webbing tabs around the base have a series of slots too, which is a real advantage on rough ground. The outer door opens only from the bottom and rolls to the side to expose a large porch, which is ideal for a couple of rucksacks. The inner tent door rolls to the side. Get inside and two can sit up reasonably comfortably. Mesh around the top keeps condensation under control.  But when two campers lie down in this tent the space is tight (other comparable tents are about 10cm wider). It would be good if the outer zip had been a double zip design so that the top could have been vented, but at least you get a vent at the top of the doorway.

Verdict Buy it if you can tolerate the narrow width as this is the major drawback of what is a stable design with a good porch.
