  • Excerpt: Most tents this affordable can’t be trusted to handle real weather—but the Midori earned our respect in stormy Tasmania. “The taut pitch kept the fabric from flapping,” reports one tester who slept contentedly through 25-mph gusts and rain showers that raked breezy Cape Pillar, on the Tasman...

  • Excerpt: I am an experienced camper, older in age, and with all experience in the U.S. This is a fine quality tent. The materials used in all parts and components as well as workmanship are above average. I have several Kelty and Eureka tents of varying sizes. This Marmot ranks above these products.

  • Excerpt: I live in the UK and bought this tent in June 2010. I have just returned from a few weeks in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland and had to move into a simple hostel after just seven days because the tent was not stable/wind/rain proof.

  • Excerpt: Inner tent end walls sag and eat up space. Fly end walls also won't pitch tight. Don't take this tent in a sandy windy environment. Needs simple toggles and cords to hold open doors, has weird bungee/cordlock deals that aren't neat or simple. Zippers aren't readily usable one-handed.

  • Excerpt: I really like this tent. I have used it for three seasons now and in at least three rain storms. It held up very well for me in the Adirondacks in one storm. I never once had the impression that it was going to fold.

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a 2 person backpacking tent that wouldn't break the bank. I stumbled across the Earlylight and was impressed with the space/weight ratio. I'm 6'3" and fit comfortably in this tent. It has enough height a accommodate sitting up, and the dual vestibules are nice for my gear.

  • Excerpt: I like Marmot products and I bought this tent so I didn't have to take my 4 season tent to North Dakota in September. It's a nice little weekend tent if you're near the car, or home but not for back country. I saved money and weight but that was the extent of it.

  • Excerpt: The good news is that this tent is lightweight and well-ventilated..... the bad is that this tent is lightweight and ventilated. So, it rolls up small, feels like a feather in your pack, and sets up in a flash. In warm weather you'll stay cool and dry. The sun makes this thing literally glow.
