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 VA...it'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.

I bought this tent in the spring of 2014 and have used it twice before putting it away for the summer. Even though it is designed as a 2-person tent, I prefer to use it as a 1-person tent! It will be tight if you squeeze 2 bodies in there! Rule of thumb: 1 person needs a 2-person tent, 2 persons need a 3-person tent, 3 persons need a 4-person tent, and so on ... , and that goes for any brand out there not just Marmot. OK, back to the subject. I love Marmot products because they are very well made, stylish, and practical. One person can put this tent up easily, the instructional video on their website is very helpful. The tent is very light so in windy condition, make sure you throw your backpack inside to hold it down in place before you nail the stakes down. I do not "rough it" when going camping so I dont know how it holds up in extreme condition, but I'll bet it will be just fine. The screen panels help you see out and keep you from getting stuffy inside during the day, but make sure you put the waterproof fly on at night because the fog and morning dew will penetrate the breathable fabric and get you wet if you don't. It comes complete with everything, including the footprint which is a big plus. Overall it is a good buy - a better buy if you catch it on sale like I did - and your money will be well spent. Can't wait for the fall to get here. Happy trail !!!

I own a lot of tents (including Hillebergs) and hammocks but this tent probably gets more use than any of them. It's light enough for backpacking (albeit barely), has great ventilation for the warmer months, it's legitimately waterproof, and it has a full fly and somewhat usable vestibule which makes it decent in cold weather. It also sets up and takes down in minutes. The footprint is pretty light duty but it comes free with the tent as does the loft so I can't really complain. My only real negative is that the vestibule opens on the opposite side of the entrance zipper. It just doesn't make sense especially with only one way in and out. You can fit 2 people in a pinch but the tapered side reduces its real-world usability to a spacious 1 person tent. Regardless I still love it. If you have a chance to grab it for about $160...take it and run!
