The particular things I like about this tent are (1) so fast to put up and take down especially when there are swarms of mosquitoes about; (2) as a 6-footer I can stand up in the tent while dressing and undressing simply by bending my head down; (3) I can deploy the fly, then disconnect it from 3 stakes and fold the whole fly down onto the ground on one side of the tent. Then I get to enjoy the night scenery and breezes, but if it starts to rain, I can get the fly deployed again in 35 seconds. Yes, I've timed it.
Only one thing I did not like and that was the lack of any tie loops inside the tent. Minor nit that I fixed by sewing in some tie loops myself. This is for stringing up a cord inside the tent to hang wet clothes at night.
One reviewer said it's not big enough for four people. He must be new to camping--no 4-person tent is big enough for 4 people! LOL The "person" designation that all tent manufacturers use is just to tell you the relative size. A 4-person is bigger than a 3-person and smaller than a 6-person. Other than that, if you are shopping for a tent and need a certain size, then you need to look at the tent dimensions that are shown in the list of specifications.
Another reviewer also whined about the size of the stuff sack. My sack is fine. I'm able to roll up the tent, the fly, a heavy poly footprint, the vestibule doormat, a big plastic mallet, extra stakes, and extra guy lines with room to spare. The tricks you need to use for any tent is (1) lay the tent bag down next to where you are folding up the parts so that you can eyeball the folded length before you start to roll everything up.Read more ›
Second, don't expect to fit four people comfortably in one tent. While it is advertised as a four person tent, it is perfect for two. Four people would be cramped even if just sleeping on the ground in sleeping bags rather than on cots like we use.
Third, the rainfly on each tent is full coverage, going all the way to the ground and work great! We never had an issue with water or condensation getting inside the tent. However, the full-coverage rain fly does NOT prevent sand from blowing through. We have had plenty of sand come through the tent in sandy desert areas and cover our stuff with a layer of sand.
Finally, probably the biggest issue we have had is with the malfunctioning zippers. Most of the zippers on the door of the tent as well as the rainfly have either broken, been difficult to close or have quit working completely.
Overall we like the tents and Marmot is going to replace the zippers on those that do not work. For the occasional camper wanting to buy these tents, they are a good TWO person option!
I got this for camping with just one kid so I could set up and take down easily. Up in just a couple minutes. Comes down just as easily, but I'll likely invest in a bigger stuff sack. No need to mess around with trying to roll it just right to get it in the one provided. Important for a backpacking tent, but for a 4 person, it's just unnecessary.
I deducted 1 star because of minor, annoying design flaws. Aside from the too-small stuff sack the silly door mat has some issues The door mat is a good idea, It basically is designed to fit under the vestibule. However, as designed, it attaches to each front corner of the tent only, leaving a big 'half moon" gap between the fabric and the tent entrance just where you need it most. Also, the velcro straps which attach the fly to the pole structure are very short and difficult to manipulate. Would hate to have to mess with it on a dark, rainy night. You can just skip attaching them, but if Marmot is going to put them there, they should work well.
I wish Marmot would have skipped the vestibule mat and just provided the footprint. Much more important and it's a pain to have to pay another $50 to get one.
Tent poles for light tents are going to bend with use. I have high quality 2, 4, 6, and 8 person tents and all the longer poles have bent slightly with use, over. But, they bend to the shape needed. This is just how it is when they are designed to be light. It doesn't impact function and doesn't make it noticeably harder to pack.
The zippers seem light duty, but the ones on my 2p Marmot are the same and have been working for 10 years. I can't say the same for my Big Agnes 8 person. That's a company that needs to invest in better quality zippers.
