    Marmot Limelight 2P Tentis rated4.1935out of5by31.
    Rated5out of5byfromWould buy it again!Amazing cold weather performance from a 3-season tent! I have the 2-person version, and it held up well on a 3 day trip in sub-freezing weather. This tent withstood 12-14" of snow. The only time we were reminded that it was not a true 4-season tent was when the winds kicked up over 40mph. Guy lines held fine, but mesh underneath fly was a quick reminder! Have been on several other trips with this tent. Gear loft is pretty neat feature too. Only complaints are; vestibule is almost too small for 2 packs, and although very good weight-wise, it has a large pack-size. Those two complaints aside, I still give it 5-stars! Very sturdy, quick easy setup/breakdown. Lightweight. Has held water and wind proof.

    Rated5out of5byfromChef RecommendsI love this tent and so has everyone else who has used it with me as well. The two man sets up super fast and is ridiculously easy. Didn't even need to read the directions. I have been in quite a few nights of heavy rain and wind and the tent was bone dry on the inside. My only problem is that I will never be able to compare it to another tent. I feel so confident in this one I wouldn't want to risk trying anything else. Solid!

    Rated3out of5byfromFair weather tentI purchased this tent for my 11 year old son to use on boy scout camping / overnight hiking trips. The tent can be split between two boys for a pack weight of about 2 1/2 pounds each. Its easy to set up but does leak in medium rain. The fain fly only covers the lower mesh on the ends of the tent by about 2 inches. If theres any wind with the rain it blows under the rain fly into the tent. Its a nice lightweitht tent for the price but I would only reccomend this tent for fair weather camping.

    Rated5out of5byfromWhhhhoooaa!I've used this tent in a myriad of trips from hot summer camping trips in Yosemite to rainy and cold treks along the Lost Coast. It's a perfect 3-season tent. Sturdy and I love the mess skylight makes it great for stargazing on a cool summer night. It is extremely easy to pack and setup. I'm 5'3" 110lbs and lugging a full backpack of gear (tent, sleeping gear, cooking, clothes, tools, water, etc.) for 3-4 days every oz/lb counts and this tent really shaved off some weight off my pack. SO AWESOME!

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat TentI bought this tent for my 13 year old boy scout son. He says it was really easy to set up, comfortable and the only thing that would make it better would be a few more inches taller! :-)

    Rated4out of5byfromDoes the jobSolid tent. I needed a decent 2P tent that wasn't terribly expensive. This Marmot did the trick. Not the smallest or lightest tent out there but I took it out on a 5-day backpacking trip and everything was fine. Got a little rain and a ton of snow and wind. No problems. Roomy enough for two people if they're a couple or don't mind getting cozy but otherwise not super-spacious.

    Rated5out of5byfromNice tent!Good tent. This is second time I purchased it for my son. The previouse one was lost at a campe site and he wants the same tent as before. The only thing I want it to be improved is the one door design. If it can be a two door tent, that will be perfect!

    Rated4out of5byfromPurchased for possible winter campingI myself really like this tent, It has plenty of room for two with air matresses. I tested it out in 39 degree temps and i will say that this tent breaths extremely well! i could feel the cold creeping in under the fly where the boat stops and the mesh begins. Loved the dual clamp design for the tent to poles for setup. Wish it was a bit lighter but i am happy!
