The Eos 1 Person tent is the lightest tent that Marmot make, aimed at the solo hiker or bike tourist. It is possible to squeeze 2 people inside for a night or two like for a mountain marathon but it's going to be very cosy. Where the Marmpt Eos 1P excels is providing light and adequate space for the solo traveller. At 1.24 Kg (minimum weight without bags & spares) the Eos is fine for 1 person to carry even with plenty of height gain to contend with. Fly Fabric: 40d Nylon R/S Sil/PU 1800mm Floor fabric: 40d Nylon R/S 3000mm Canopy fabric: 20d No-Seeum-Net Min. Weight 1.24kg (without bags or spares)(weighed by Facewest at 1.28 kg) Max. weight 1.47 kg (weighed by Facewest at 1.50 kg) Top marks to Marmot for being pretty accurate with their weights.

General comments: Had this tent for nearly a year now. Good wee tent although the fly does tend to let in more of our horizontal rain than other tents that I have had due to the bottom of the fly sheet being quite high off the ground. That aside this does allow very good ventilation. One other good point that I had not previously considered when selecting a tent is due to the lightness of the interior tent, when you have had a few too many drams and lose articulation in your fingers you don't need to bother with the zips to gain access. On further reflection this may indeed be a bad point as repairs are not cheap.
Pros: Light weight though sturdy. Easy to put up and stow away.
Cons: Possibly too much ventilation for hebridean conditions. Could do with a spare peg even if you don't carry it. Pegs too flashy leading to them getting stolen at camp sites
