  • 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

  • Summary: This is a solid, waterproof, dependable shelter that is incredibly easy to setup. The 3P is good for 2 people who want a some extra room in which to stretch out. The vestibules are enormous, almost too big. This tent is luxurious for a couple who bring a good deal of gear.
  • Pros: Simply designed, Waterproof, Windows, Easy to set up, Footprint + gear loft included, Plenty of floorspace (for 2)
  • Cons: 3P would be tight for 3 people, No vents, On the heavy side for backpacking, Not much headroom, but enough

  • Excerpt: 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...

  • Excerpt: 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.
