Summary: 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. They should not mislead the customer into purchasing this tent. IF WEIGHT IS AN ISSUE DON'T BUY THIS TENT.

Summary: 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.

Summary: Lived in this tent with my wife for a month through rainy season in Panama and did not get wet once inside the tent. It is an amazing tent with many good features, packs up super small and weighs little and most importantly can handle the elements.

Summary: This is a very well designed tent. It has been through some serious rain and wind storms with me and i always stayed dry. i travel alone so for 2 people this tent is small unless it's an adult and child or two smaller people. the little window is very handy, ventilation is excellent, the poles are a dream, they almost put themselves together, the color is nice and bright on dreary, dark days, stakes are first class, zippers are stout, fly is well made and solid.

Summary: I've never been one to crave sleeping outdoors. As an amateur landscape photographer I enjoy hiking, it's just that many of the locales I wish to photograph are more than a day hike from the trailhead, ergo, I use a tent. While I've had the pleasure of borrowing tents for much of my life, the Marmot is the first I've owned myself. What I like about it. I don't think anyone has found the perfect design for erecting a tent, but the system Marmot uses here is a winner.

Summary: Took this tent to Zion NP for its maiden voyage. Hiked a twenty mile loop in some dicey conditions (windy and cold). This tent was quite sturdy and kept up warm for the night. It does only have one door so if you have to frequently "step out" for the night, you had better be the one sleeping by the door. Other than that, light weight is a plus, reflective less trip ups at night, with plenty of stash room for odds and ends. Overall a great tent! Would recommend!

Summary: This should be a helpful comment. I've owned a generation of this Limelight for a few years now. It's been rock climbing in AZ + SoCal, winter camping in lake effect temps and snow and two dozen rain soaked Oregon nights among tons of others. This tent has held up through all of it. If you take care of this tent it'll take care of you - no doubt. Good ventilation in the warmer times, but knocks down drafts in the colder temps.

Summary: I bought this tent due to my old (20+years) Eureka Timberlite had seen better days. After many trips the coating was shot and leaked on the last two trips. I did some research and the Limelight 2 seemed like a good fit for my usage (motorcycle and quad camping). The packed size was not too bad. Setting the tent up is a breeze, nice pole design and clips work great. The vestibule will be a nice addition since the old tent did not have one.

15 October 2009
Summary: Nice tent. Quick and easy to set up. Holds up nicely to wind and rain. Came with a free foot print and gear loft. The gear loft seems sort of pointless. I can't remember what I paid but the price was good for the quality of the gear (may have been on sale at Campmor). Only two complaints and they're subjective: 1) When unzipping the door from the outside it has a tendency to want to fall to the outside, in the dirt/mud.

19 August 2009
Summary: One somewhat irritating point - the fly only fits one way, with no easy 'this goes here' feature. The tent is actually somewhat narrower at one end. Fine, good to reduce pack size / weight, but makes putting some mark on a corner necessary. I got some reflective tape & seam glued 4" of tape to corner of fly and tent body. Otherwise excel, does the job for not that much $$$.
