5.0 out of 5 stars A Rain Review,
Set-up: Easy. 20min, one person, first time.
Construction Quality: This tent has a great balance of weight/quality materials. I did not get the impression Marmot cut corners anywhere to save money on construction; other than being made in China (what isn't?). Weight is somewhat important to us as we like the option of dividing up for hike-in's.
Space: There is always a trade off with having lots of room and finding a place to set-up. This tent is a perfect compromise. We slept 2 adults, 2 tween children and a 70 lb dog using a queen air mattress and 2 Thermarest. It was cozy, but we still had enough room for our packs and space for one person to stand up in the middle to change. This tent is just the right size to house our family and not need a wide open prairie to set up.
Rain/Moisture: Our Limestone 6 just went through 3 days with 4" of rain, 30mph gusts and temps in the high 30's. We stayed completely dry with no additional sealing or taping. When breaking camp, I did notice a little moisture between the fly and tent in some places. Given the number of bodies and the temp/dew point over the 3 days, this was probably unavoidable. I will also disclose I did not take advantage ALL possible places to use guy lines as Marmot did not provide enough stakes or lines. This probably wouldn't have been a problem in normal conditions and we still stayed completely dry inside.
Tips: Buy the footprint, watch the YouTube video on setting up, bring 2 extra stakes/guy lines and use colder rated bags so you can take advantage of the great tent ventilation keeping everything nice and dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dry through days of rain,
*Fast and easy to set up
*High enough to stand up in
*Orange color is easy to spot, and cheerful
*Nice Marmot logo is reflective for night finding
*Private (can't see in) when all zipped up
It's worth it to spend a little bit more on a quality tent like this.
Make sure to get the footprint, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it.,
This review is from: Marmot Limestone 6 Persons Tent (Sports)We've spent at least 40 nights in this tent. Here are my concerns. Tents stakes were cool until camping in the desert, they won't hammer into hard ground, I'm taking the chinese nails with the green plastic top on them next time. I've been able to get it back in the bag once at home, not too big a deal. The vestibule could be a tad bit larger for the size of the tent, don't expect to close the vestibule with out opening the tent, but it keeps the foot print smaller. Were starting to get a tear in the screen material where the poll clips are sewn in on two of the corners, that may not be a problem if your 5 year old doesn't bounce off the walls. Other than that, the tent sets up easy, polls are strong, and the limited wind and rain it's been in was fine. I really like this tent, it works well for the four of us, and I'd buy it again. I like it enough that when I get a back packing tent, I will lean toward Marmot.
