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: 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: This is a really nice 1-person freestanding tent, with all the trade-offs that that encompasses. I bought the 2009 EOS 1P after realizing that my 4.5lb 10-year-old 2-person tent was really no longer cutting it: I wasn't doing 2 person hikes anymore and it wasn't really keeping out the weather.

Excerpt: Great tent. I was hesitant about how much room I would have being taller than 6 feet. And then I bought the EOS 1person tent because the review video on youtube was great and was at the packed size and weight I was looking for. It's for sleeping in, not inviting guests in to play cards.

Excerpt: I bought a new EOS1P in anticipation of an upcoming motorcycle camping trip. I wanted lightweight, ease of set up, durability and more than 15 sq.ft. of interior space. It has a claimed 23 sq.ft. I read other reviews and figured I could live with the narrow ceiling. It is light with an easy set-up.
Excerpt: This dome isn’t the lightest in its class—the freestanding Burn Ridge weighs four pounds more than ultralight options—but it costs half as much, making this two-door, four-person shelter a fantastic buy for families seeking an affordable backcountry shelter.

Excerpt: I bought a previous version of this tent. The new one is for people shorter than 6ft. If you ever plan to deal with the customer service, do not buy Marmot Tents. I sent them mine about 6 months ago (my tent has a lifetime warranty).

Excerpt: I am a devoted devoted bivy user. Simple and lightweight. This year I went to Philmont with my son's Scout Troop. They require you to sleep in a tent. Okay fine. I did some research and decided on the Marmot EOS 1P. I am a convert!
