Summary: I was looking for a tent that would do it all, without breaking the bank or my back. I also wanted it to be suitable for a multitude of scenarios: car camping, backpacking (weekend, week long, or even thru hike), and possibly kayak or bike camping. This tent fit the bill.
Excerpt: As a survivalist, this is actually a great tent for a single person to add to their Bug-Out-Bag. However, the bright colors draw attention and when a person is trying to be inconspicuous the bright colors are a detriment to that effort.
Excerpt: I've had this tent (and an older version of it) for years. I am 5'1" and my favorite color is orange, so this is the perfect tent for me. A friend of my used it, who was 6'1" and he said he wouldn't want it much shorter. The vestibule is huge. The rain fly can be adjusted for breathability.
I have used this tent for about a year in all four…

Summary: I have used this tent for about a year in all four seasons and it's a very good lightweight option for most people under 6'. I like that the majority of the tent body is mesh, making for great ventilation in the summer w/o the rainfly and also great for stargazing.
Pros: Lightweight, Ease of setup — single pole design, Good size vestibule
Cons: Rainfly does not reach the ground — bad in wind, No gear loop on the inside ridge to hang a lantern or headlamp, No airspace between rainfly and tent mesh
Excerpt: I've had a Marmot Eos for almost 3 years now and it sees between 2 and 3 months of use every year. The tent is still just as great as when I bought it. It is durable, keeps you dry, ventilates fantastically without freezing you to death, and sets up and takes down fast.
Excerpt: This is a 5 star tent, except apparently there exists no footprint for it. You'll find one online, but it's for an older model with different dimensions.
As a tent, it's incredibly lightweight, easy to setup and seems fairly durable given it's mostly mesh.
Excerpt: I've used the Marmot EOS 1P four or so times over the course of the last two years. On two occasions in torrential rain. It held up well. Best features are it's light weight and easy setup. I typically have this tent pitched in less than a few minutes.
