This review is for the Marmot Limelight 3P 3-Season Backpacking Tent.

I wanted to get a few trips out with this tent before giving a review.

. 1) Pinchot Trail Lackawanna State Forest - (2 adults) 2 days 35° to 17° heavy wind gusts, light snow. (image posted below)
. 2) Musser Scout Reservation - (Solo) 2 days 45° - 60°
. 3) Palmyra cove Nature park - (My son 11 yr old and myself) 1 day 45° Heavy Rain.
. 4) Camp Delmont - (solo) 2 days 45° - 60°
. 5) Hickory Run State Park - (solo) 2 days 45° - 50°
. 6) Camp Grice Solo 2 days 25° - 40° used a Coleman Black Cat type heater and was toasty warm all weekend.
. 7) Ockanickon Scout Reservation solo 2 days 45° - 65° setup on wood platform.
. 8) Brendan T Byrne State Forest my son and another scout used the tent, 40°- 55° rained the entire weekend.

My build - 5' 9" 215 lbs.

I have no negative comments about this tent it has worked flawlessly and it is extremely easy to setup.
The tent is comfortable for two adults and there's a bit of room that you can place some clothes, boots and such.
The vestibule is OK for a 65 litre pack, and is nice to cook in, I store my pack in one side and cook in the other side.
I love this for solo (not for backpacking) camping as I can easily dress in the tent. I looked into the 2 person version but was afraid to take a chance because of the reviews on it being a leaker! UPDATE I have recently purchased two of the two person Limelight's one for my Brother and one for my son, after reading the reviews a little more thoroughly I felt that the two person was worth the chance at $160.00 a piece.

The 3p is bit heavy for Solo Backpacking at 6.5 lbs. but with 2 guys sharing the weight, it is a breeze.

I got this tent to replace our trusty old tent of many years that decided to give out during a rainstorm. I'm very happy with the tent. This is actually the first time I have had fun putting a tent together. I have a feeling we will be using this tent even longer than our old trusty tent (R.I.P old blue).

Pros:
Looks great
Puts together VERY EASILY
Very sturdy
Great storage

Cons:
Slightly smaller than I was expecting, but that was my fault for thinking our old tent was a three person tent, or maybe it is time for me to lose weight!! A queen size air mattress just fits in the tent, leaving no room for anything else on the floor.

**Update**
A year and a half later we still love this tent. This summer we went camping and took our newly adopted dog with us. Since he wasn't trained just yet I had to clip his leash to the tent pole so he could lay down in the tent while we set up our campsite. While doing this something (I have no idea what it was) made our dog decide to give chase. I turned my head and all I saw was our dog running full speed ahead with the tent flying behind him. We gave chase but were nowhere near as fast as him. About 200 yards away the tent got hung up on a tree and caused the pole to bend and the leash slipped off the pole. We managed to catch up with him shortly after and was dreading what shape the tent was going to be in when we got to it. There was not one single tear in the tent. The pole was bent a little and it was impossible for us to bend it back by hand. We were able to use it without any issues after that and when we got home I was able to bend the pole back into shape using tools. I don't know any other tents that could handle a 30 mph run through the woods and come out without any damage.

Love this tent. Have used it a few times on extended backpacking with my sons. Sets up in the rain well, and in the dark. Does not leak in the rain. I have only used it in 3 season weather. My sons and i are 6' tall and we fit fine in it. Though this year they may both be taller than me, so we will see.

As always, set up any new tent you are unfamiliar with a few times so that you can set it up rapidly when you plans don't quite match the reality of the situation. It can be set up by one person, but it is quicker with two. Plenty of venting so condensation has not been a problem with three inside during cool near foggy conditions.

Like it very much. I have the orange version.

I grew up camping, but now go more often with my son's Boy Scout Troop. I bought this tent based on other positive reviews, ease of setup, size and weight. I have to say this tent exceeded my expectations! Took only minutes to setup on my own the first time (although I did watch a video of the setup prior to purchase), included the footprint (I do add another groundcloth underneath it just to keep things tidy) and gear loft. I can easily sit upright inside this tent, although with more than 2 people it will be less comfortable. Overall this tent may be too heavy for a long backpacking trip, but that's the tradeoff for more space.

Our most recent campout included a couple of hours of heavy downpours and wind. This tent was bone dry inside, no issues whatsoever. Other tents at camp were not as strong as this one, and the winds made the other tents' rain flys touch the inner tent, causing water leaks inside. In the morning, several other adults on the trip checked out the inside of my tent, and marveled at how tidy the tent was after such a storm. Breakdown of the tent was just as easy as setup. Water sheds from the rainfly with just a shake, and it's ready to pack for storage. Love the light bronze color aluminum stakes, they are sturdy and very easy to see on the ground (so they hard to lose). Gear loft is handy for lightweight items; keep the heavy stuff away from this loft as the small plastic rings that support it probably cannot take much weight.

I am 100% satisfied with this tent!!!
