Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impression My wife and I are about to spend the last years of our life cycling and backpacking, living primarily out of a tent. We love to stargaze safe from mosquitos and such. While no tent made today meets 100% of what we are looking for in a tent, the Force 2P has definitely come the closest. I am going to begin with what I would change and get the negatives out of the way first. #1. Black Netting. I'm having trouble understanding why a tent designed specifically for visibility uses a material that gives the least amount of visibility. Marmot's use of a silvery gray netting was a poor choice. A black netting does not reflect light and allows one to see outside with much more clarity especially when an outside light source is introduced. #2. More Headroom. 38" is not a decent standard for any tent and should never be considered on a shelter such as this. Especially when the main selling point is how much room the tent design has created. Everyone knows how annoying it is to move around and do things in a tent when your head is crushed against the ceiling. This tent should of had no less than 40" of height (42" would have be awesome). #3. Larger Vestibules. More of a convenience than a necessity. Having a 7-8 sq. ft. vestibule would be much more practical in use than the 6 sq. ft. it comes with. #4. The clip that attaches to the ridge poll is sewn to a piece of material sewn to the netting. This is needed because of the huge amount of stress created to tension the tent. Only issue is, they only used one stitch instead of double stitching. It may not be a problem, I don't know yet as time and use will be the only judge. But out of the bag (see photo) the netting appears to be ripping already. #5. Color. I love green. It is my favorite color. And I really like the color of this tent. However, in my opinion, this is not good tent color. You couldn't use it in some European countries where bright colors like this are illegal to use. Just to be clear, I am very happy and satisfied with my purchase of the Force 2P shelter. I offered my negatives first only as constructive criticism. They were not so problematic that I wouldn't recommend this tent to anyone for whom this tent is designed for. What I like about this shelter: #1. Field of View. The bathtub floor is the perfect height all the way around to allow an unobstructed 360° view, even laying down. It's nice sleeping in the open air without being eaten by mosquitos. #2. Tension. This tent does not feel claustrophobic. A perfectly tensioned tent handles moisture and ventilation better, allows more sleeping space, and withstands high winds. The Force is properly named and functions as such. #3. Freestanding. Not sure why this was so important to me. The past 14 years I have been using either tarps or 12oz shelters that needed to be staked down. I've never been uncomfortable so I am still at a loss to understand why I felt switching to a commercial shelter like the Force felt important to me. I think it's a "we" instead of a "me" decision now that my wife and I are changing lifestyles. #4. Setup. Setting this tent up is so incredibly easy and predictable. #5. Weight to Feature Ratio. After comparing nearly every tent in its class made and taking pluses and minuses into account, I have no doubt that at this moment the Force is the best tent made amongst its peers. #6. Rainfly. The rainfly is properly tensioned, does not rest on the netting, and has full coverage. The vent high on the door and the nice air flow below the vestibules over great ventilation. So this completes the most comprehensive review I have ever done in my entire life. whew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing tent! First off, this review is for the Pulsar 2P, which is the older model of the Force 2P. Both tents are essentially the same, except that the Force is slightly less weight and a different color. Since the Pulsar 2P is not sold anymore, and from my positive experience using this tent very recently on Mt. Whitney, I feel like this is the best place to put my review. I use this tent mainly for solo backpacking, since it's reasonably light enough to carry myself. I wouldn't recommend using the 2P for two people unless you are comfortable spooning. It is great, however, as a spacious 1P tent. This tent really got a test when I used it for an overnight climb on Mt. Whitney in severe thunderstorms. We had heavy rain, hail, and wind for about 6 straight hours. This tent was flawless throughout. There was so much water being dumped on us that my campsite actually flooded, so the tent was literally floating on about 2 inches of water the entire night. There was no leaking from the floor, or condensation on the rainfly - this is really impressive considering how light and thin the materials are. I like that it has a large vestibule for storing gear, and a couple of mesh inner pockets for storing essentials. Overall, this is a great little 3-season tent that performs exceptionally well in all weather conditions. Highly recommended to those worried about keeping dry in any kind of rainstorm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Light and WARM Bought this tent about a month ago and I love it. It is REALLY light, packs up quick and easy; and is super easy to put up. I love the green but one thing is that the color does attract bugs, so on a summer afternoon I have some beetle friends hanging out on the fly. The tent does stay really airtight at night which is great. Just camped in 30°F weather and was snug as a bug (was in a 0°F sleeping bag), but the tent felt sealed. Will be taking this badboy on some backpacking adventures in Scotland--now that will be the test of all time for this tent. Will return with a review at that point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tent Very happy with this tent. Wanted more room without too much added weight and this is great balance between space and weight. While there are one person tents that are lighter I'm willing to carry the extra pound to have plenty of space. I've had several one person tents but grew tired of being cramped. This ones a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bike touring/back packing 2 person tent I bought this tent for bike touring because I wanted a light weight 2 person tent. Not only is it a featherweight, it compacts down to nothing in a compression bag. The poles must be stored seperately due to their length but that's not a problem. Easy to pitch and very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tent I bought this tent 9 months in advance of a trip I was planning. It is the first tent that I purchase new. Purchase date was Oct-2016 and it was labeled as being manufactured 23-July-2015. Speaking to the negatives from an older review: * All seams are double stitched. * Headroom is 40 inches at the peak and 38 at 23 inches from there. I am not real tall but I find this more than adequate. I like everything about this tent except the wording of the setup instructions. Here I would very much appreciate the inclusion of the color-coding facts built into the tent design. I was very confused during my first test setup and had to resort to the on-line video to help untangle what I didn't understand. Although that video is more of a marketing feature description, it did help. Totally missing from the instructions is how to set up the optional footprint. The corners of this are color-coded to match those on the corners of the tent. Just saying that and the fact that the "red tabs" go on the right side when laid out looking from foot to head of the tent would be enough.
