Very easy to setup and light weight.
I love Marmot products because they are very well made, stylish, and practical.
Great for one person, a tight fit for two but doable.

I bought this tent in Spring and have used it at least ten times, car camping and backpacking. What I really like about it is that it is all inclusive: you don't have to buy a tarp (footprint) separate, the stakes and poles are great quality, and they even throw in a gear loft! I bought it on sale for $150 and it was a steal. Two things you need to know about this tent: when you put on the rainfly, always stake the front and the back, even if those are the only two stakes you use. If you forget to stake the back, whoever is farther from the door will get wet. It's just how it's designed. Second thing, the tent will fit nicely into the bag it comes in. The easiest thing to do is lay the footprint down, the tent on top of it, and the rainfly on top of that. Make sure that you lay the rainfly so it's the same size as the footprint. Fold it all in half, stuffing in the loose ends so it stays the same size as the footprint. Then roll it up. I love this tent. It's got a cool little windown on the rainfly and gear storage pockets on the side. When used the rainfly is plenty of insulation, but if you take it off most of the body is mesh so you can see the stars. In the morning it feels like I'm in a little orange spaceship. I've used it all over Pisgah, Gorges State Park, Grayson Highlands in's never let me down. Sturdy, well-made product. The only improvements I would make would be to make it a little bit easier to put together for one person (the poles are a snap to fit in the four corners with two people, but it take a little patience by yourself) and to give it the kind of bag where you could just stuff it in without rolling it.

This tent is an incredible value for the $$$. We have owned the Marmot Limelight (2) for just over a year and can vouch for the following features:

• Waterproof – it kept us dry through coastal storms in April, and through a mountain downpour in September
• Footprint – successfully protected our tent and sleeping pads, and kept the mud on the ground
• Interior space – fits my partner and I, our sleeping pads and clothing with room to stretch
• Easy set-up – takes under 5 minutes and is easy for one person to assemble
• Lightweight – slightly heavier than some competitors, but it's very easy to divide between packs
• Gear loft – awesome for keeping valuables and hanging our flashlight after dark to light the tent
• D-shaped door – can be a struggle to crawl over my partner at night, but otherwise easy to get in and out
• Vestibule – can fit one large pack but won't keep your gear completely dry in a storm – fly is too short
• Bag – this is the first tent that we've used that actually fits in the bag with room to spare
• Breathability – excellent, even on hot nights the ventilation under the fly is fantastic
• Easy to clean – our tent survived a murder of pooping crows and a break-and-enter by racoons

We do wish that the fly opened on the opposite side, and that the vestibule provided more coverage in rain. It is large enough to keep our shoes dry, but packs had to be snug against the tent to avoid splash-up from under the fly. The tent does breathe well but it's a no-brainer to pack for the outside temperature.

Tips: When pitching the tent, it's worth taking a minute to stake it out to increase ventilation. If you are expecting rain, pitch the tent on pine needles or leaves to avoid mud splash-up.

First of all this is a heavy tent. That is obvious in the specs. It is in the price point of most tents this size and quality so no surprise there.

Hard to pack. It barely fits in the stuff sack and demands a tight roll up.

Hard to put up. With one person the poles just don't stay put at first and a short dance will ensue attempting to get it up quickly.
Even if the poles stay put and one practices it is just a slow to set-up tent.

Worst part is it is not a warm tent. The ventilation is low and high so cold air leaks in and warm air escapes. Note the side view, you will basically be out side with cold air blowing on your face. when set up with the rain fly taut. Way too much screen for a fall-winter spring camping trip. A recent camping trip with a 20° sleeping bag that got down to ~30° was quite uncomfortable in this tent. I have been in similar or worse situation is my Eureka Timberline and was able to block out the elements much better for the same weight.

It appears the design was to make a lightweight summer tent and include a heavy rainfly for more extreme situations but as I said the ventilation is not thought out and cold air whips right through. I had to slacken the rainfly to hang against the tent vents to keep out some wind and this would not have been good in the rain.

The zippers are way to delicate. They could be a grade heavier with no weight penalty and operate smoother.

After 14+ nights in this tent I am going back to the Timberline. Simple pup-tent affair with simple to control ventilation and not more weight.

if this tent had fabric down at face level it may have been a great tent but as is only slightly better than outside for warmth.
