Camping out in the heat in the middle of summer can be a problem unless you are equipped with a tent like the Boreas by Marmot 3 Person model that is ultralight and ultracool .

The Boreas By Marmot 3 person tent is a tent that will keep you cool while the other campers are sweltering away. The reason being is that the Boreas ventilation system is like no other tent on the market.

This Boreas 3p by Marmot is comprised of an all mesh tent body, with two large vents at the head and foot of the fly . Adding to this formula, the rain fly is separated by a few inches from the main body to further maximize the amount of air circulation. You will think you are sitting next to a fan. Leave your battery operated camping fan at home, you won't need one.

A completely waterproof floor with taped seams that are lifted off the floor will assure you of no water incursion from the ground. The clips and poles are color coded which make this a simple job to set up quickly. Two vestibules, fully taped rain fly and optional gear loft combine to make this a fantastic tent.

Our Advise And Comments On The Boreas By Marmot:

This is an excellent ultralight tent with fantastic ventilation. Though it can handle 3 people, in our belief it really is more fitting for only two people as three people may make it a bit crowded. As an ultralight, it is just that and great for backpackers that don't wish to cart around additional weight.

The ventilation and lightness of this tent is what makes it so good. Truthfully one of the best tents for camping all through the sweltering summer months. Although categorized as a three season tent, I would want to bring along a warm sleeping bag for utilization in colder times as this is a very cool tent.

Also, Backpacker magazine named this tent as "Best Ventilation", of which we wholeheartedly agree. Overall,one of the best summer backpacking camping tents that you will be grateful for during those hot steamy nights. We certainly enjoyed our time spent camping in the Boreas By Marmot 3 Person Tent.
