The Marmot Abode 2P returns in 2010 with a new “Stay Put Pole” System designed to give the tent the best combination of space and stability. The pole system initially looks complex but in practise fits together quickly, giving a noticeable height gain either side of the centre line. The Taffeta inner is breathable but substantial enough when the wind picks up and can take an optional gearloft for inside storage.The doors on either side of the Abode 2P give access to good sized vestibules, with teardrop shaped welded windows in the fly for a check on conditions before braving the outside. No drip doors make getting in and out easy, with the dual diameter poles holding the tent secure. Designed for mountain use the flysheet has a higher hydrostatic head than backpacking tents, but at 2 1/2 kilos between two people the Adobe 2P is a genuine all rounder.

Took this out for an overnighter, and although slightly heavier than some of my tents, it really stood up to the wind and the rain (no prizes for guessing that I was in Wales!) and is suitable for mountain use as a result.I really liked the small window for the morning, waiting for the rain to blow over and if I was going anywhere the weather wasn’t promising to be great, I would reach for this immediately.
