  • 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...

  • Summary: Great features and construction, just a little small for two to cohabitate and heavy for one to carry.
  • Pros: Great for 1 adult and gear, Window is useful but not intrusive, Quality and design are "well done!"
  • Cons: Small for all but the most intimate pair of campers, Not light: 6# (not 5) as delivered.

  • Summary: I needed a lighter tent for a backpacking trip and didn't want to lug around an 8 lb tent. This is a very solid choice with a good price point (especially if you can find it on sale). It has great durable rip-stop nylon and doesn't weigh down my backpack.
  • Pros: Easy setup, Light, Sturdy
  • Cons: Very tight for two people, Won't stop a strong breeze from coming in

  • Summary: I chose this tent after a long search. I used it for two and a half months in every weather except snow, and this tent is just terrific! Strong, light, easy to set up, very well ventilated. Marmot got it right on every part of it (except the stakes). Totally recommended!
  • Pros: Very well ventilated, Easy to set, High quality materials and manufacture
  • Cons: The rain fly zipper is a bit hard to reach, Cause of high ventilation doesn't stop cold breeze, Stakes are not good enough

  • Summary: Previously I used a Eureka Timberline 2 tent. This tent was good in cold temps, inadequate in warm to hot temps. Also the rain fly was inadequate in wind driven rainstorms. The Marmot Limelight 2 is far superior to the Eureka. The shape and design make it FAR less susceptible to high winds.
  • Pros: Easy set up, Ventilation is great, Excellent rain/weather protection, Great stability in windy conditions
  • Cons: Original stakes are only fair. Replace them with "groundhog stakes". You'll have a solid tent., If you're a lone backpacker/hiker you may find this tent a little heaver than your liking.

  • Excerpt: The tent is made very well for rain, this is why I bought it.  This tent weighs 6.2lbs. not 5lbs. like it states. Hiking 14,000 foot peaks means weight is an issue. I am disappointed that I may have to purchase a new tent over 1.2 lbs but that is another thing that I was looking for.

  • Excerpt: Best tent for the price. I just spent a week in it in WV with one thunderstorm to test it out. I stayed bone-dry. Also, the easiest tent in the world to set up. I'm going to buy the 3P version also. You will love this tent. This tent is sturdy and will keep you dry and safe.
