  • Excerpt: Our first trip in this tent was eight nights in Sequoia National Park. Four days of sunshine, three days of rain, and one day of snow. The tent performed beautifully. Take better stakes for rocky ground as the metal ones provided bent pretty easy. No leaks, no problem with gusty winds. Even got our two bikes inside one of the vestibules. Only problem was the bugs. They get between the tent and the fly and stay right above your head on the screen top.

  • Excerpt: Love the room and relative ease of set-up (recommend 2 ppl.). General build quality is very good.  We've used this tent for about 20 days total over the past season and have encountered rain, heavy, windblown rain and snow.  Never a leak. Vestibules are roomy. Ventilation options are very good and easy to set. Unfortunately, the main poles are of inadequate strength for a tent of this size at this cost point.

As long as there is dry weather the tent is perfect.

  • Excerpt: As long as there is dry weather the tent is perfect. Very good conditioning. Plenty of space . If you have windy conditions the clips are rubbing off the "waterproofskin" of the outer tent with the consequence, at the next rain the water ist coming through. After 3 weeks of using the Marmot Halo 6P the waterproof strips behind the stitching is completely going off.

  • Excerpt: Out of the box both main poles were bent. I'm still waiting to see how Marmot will respond. We spent 4 days in this tent in off and on rainy weather, generally light rain. On the last day we endured 6 hours of moderately heavy rain with moderate wind. The fly soaked through and was wet to the touch EVERYWHERE.... this was not condensation as the dampness was in areas condensation would not accumulate, plus it was heavier near some seams...

  • Excerpt: After 37 years of camping with many styles and brands, this is truly the best quality tent we have ever owned. The ventilation is outstanding and you do not feel damp at night or in the morning. The headroom and space is outstanding and the quality of the poles and zippers is unlike anything I have seen before. This will be the last tent we ever have to buy. If you want quality, and you want to stay dry no matter what the weather than this tent is what you need.

This tent is great~~ 3 or 4 season, it does the job.

  • Excerpt: This tent is great~~ 3 or 4 season, it does the job. It is comparable to one of the more expensive expedition tents. Tons of space/ standing room, great ventilation, reliable under severe weather conditions, but most of all...best bang for the buck. I bought mine new out of the box on ebay and got a killer deal...But I'd still pay full price, now that I know what a great tent it is.
