Summary: Took this out for several hikes, the green variety. It is all in all a great tent. Very easy to deploy and dismantle in minutes even during the toughest of windy subarctic conditions. Waterproofness is excellent as the fly is made out of some kind of nylon. Tent spikes are wider than a pencil, rock hard, and easy to drive into almost any surface (short of solid rock...

Summary: I've used the Marmot 3P for over a year now and it's a great tent. It's comfortable for 2 large guys (6' and 225lbs each) and backpacks very well. The setup is super easy and like others have said is pretty waterproof. I've been in a few downpours up in the North of Saskatchewan. Overall I give it 5 stars. However, the 3P rating doesn't really apply to me and the folks I hike with. I can get myself and one other in there comfortably.

Summary: Have used this tent the last year, and it's been great. It replaced an old Eureka I've had for 20 years. The weight is not bad split between two people and the size is just perfect for the two of us and our dog its just right. With 2 doors I don't have to crawl over my wife to get out in the middle of the night.

Summary: I love my Marmot 3. It is technically easy and quick to set up or pack it away into the carrying back. All fittings are strong enough and one of the best in my Marmot is the double floor. It is excellent for trekking in Lapland. The last but not the least is that it is also good looking. The only thing to criticize Marmot generally is the inside sleeping space.

Summary: Have owned the Limelight 3P for about a year; we are very happy with it. Lots of room, especially with 2 folks, but not so big that it doesn't still feel cozy. First tent I've had with 2 zip doors on opposite sides. This has proven useful. Decent amount of vestibule space as well. I wouldn't backpack with this tent - too bulky and heavy. But it's a great car camping, or short walk in to site kind of tent. And most importantly, my girlfriend loves it!

Summary: This tent is a very good bargain, it comes with the footprint, gear loft, 8 high quality hex stakes, full rain fly, two doors & two vestibules for about $100 less than comparable 3 person models I have seen. It has very high workmanship,every thing fits together logically, is snug and easy to adjust and set up. The two main poles are clipped together and you just assemble them into a X and insert into the corner grommets. Then raise the body and clip to the poles.

Summary: Well the Limelight is actually a 3.5 season tent and just went on a 3 day hike in the White Mountains (Liberty, Haystack, Lafeyette, and Lincoln) and it was great. I mean it is a 3 person tent that weighs under 7 pounds. With that said it is kinda big, but it's a 3-person tent. They all are bigger but we still found space for it with a little effort. It rained one night and we didn't get a drop of water inside, and it was very very breathable.
