Summary: After 25 years I finally retired my Moss and searched for a new tent. I selected the Marmot Limelight 3P after reading previous reviews and examining the tent the in the local REI store. After several uses I can say that I made a great choice. Everything I wanted in a 3-season tent.
Pros: Easy to set up, Extremely waterproof, Handles extreme wind well, Dual doors and vestible are nice
Cons: Lack of directions for initial setup, Stakes bend easily
