Finding the sweet spot between living space, weight, and weather protection is about as easy as going backpacking in bare feet, but Marmot's Catalyst 3 Person 3 Season Tent might just make striking that perfect balance pretty simple. It has room for three, nearly four feet of headroom, and all the storm beating design you'd expect from Marmot, so you can ride out rugged storms in surprising comfort while other campers are hightailing it for home. Marmot coated both the fly and floor with waterproof polyurethane and taped the seams to prevent wind driven moisture from finding its way in, and included a footprint for extra protection from rough ground and standing water.The Catalyst isn't a foul weather only shelter, though. With walls made from no see um mesh, it's a great place to spend nights when the skies are clear and temperatures are mild, and it also has two large D shaped doors for easy entry and maximum ventilation. When the fly's on, each door is complemented by a spacious and waterproof vestibule. HD Velocity aluminum poles stand up to stormy nights and years of use, and the included Lamp Shade illumination pocket turns your headlamp's glare into a gentle glow, so spending storm bound days and casual nights holed up is a more pleasant experience.
