I have had this tent in a couple bad thunderstorms here in Missouri and during the down pours the tent did not leak. This was the main thing I was looking for in a tent, I hate it when tents leak and this one works well in the rain. Enough room really for 2 people, but that is normal, seems like all tents run one size smaller than what they are stated for. I bought the limelight 3 knowing it would hold 2 person just fine, and 3 people if you are good friends :)
A queen size air mattress will fit perfectly in this tent with just a little room to spare (about 8 to 12 inches) at one end to put shoes and other gear. You can even put your shoes and gear in the vestibule area of the tent so you have more room in the tent. This thing is small enough to pack into my kayak, total weight of around 9LB.
Overall, really good tent for the money, good quality DAC poles, good materials, zippers, etc.. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent 2 person tent. Marmot got everything right on this tent!
This tent could not have been easier to set up. There were no tricky pole sleeves (which can rip if you are not careful) and there are only 3 poles which cuts down the confusion. The directions are pretty straightforward but did not include any information about the footprint. The footprint placement is easy enough to figure out and we had no trouble getting the tent together quickly. I don't know much about tents at all so further directions about what I should do with the roap/string would have been nice. Also included was a small metal tube which I wasn't sure about. But without using either of those items the tent was sturdy and stood well.
The tent is listed as a 3 person tent but I had only planned on using it for two and having extra space for storage. I wouldn't imagine that 3 people would sleep comfortably in this tent - two was plenty. We inflated a queen size air mattress which fit perfectly inside (though there was no room for anything else). We ended up using the car for storing our gear, but it would have been nice to keep some of it in the tent.
My main concern with buying a tent was the water resistance. I have always had problems with dew and moisture getting into the tent from the ground. Well, the footprint solved all of these problems and kept everything nice and dry. We did get a little bit of rain and the tent did well with keeping that out too.
Because we were camping in a field and not under trees it did get very hot in the tent (especially with the rain fly.Read more ›
She needed a new one as her old one had holes (after using it for over 20 years, I believe). She brought it to camp on some off road place near Nederland, CO. She loved it and is thrilled that she got it. The structure of the tent is great, you could sit up and not be crowded by the curve of it. The included footprint is brilliant, it was what convinced us to get it. Some people may say that this tent is better for two people but I think three people would work just fine. It's just that people require more space and I think the Marmot Limelight has just enough space for 3 people.
I am going to be camping and using it tomorrow and I'm excited!
