Gear Review

This review is more about Backcountry than Marmot.

This site (along with some others) seem to be confused about this tent. Backcountry listed 1 vestibule in the specs, but 2 in the description (when I purchased this on 11/23/12). A reviewer stated that a gear loft was included (there isn't; another site http://www.backwoods.com/marmot-traillight-2p-tent.html also said the gear loft was included). The Backcountry rep I chatted with said (more or less), 'too bad, you should contact Marmot, and we'll fix the info about the vestibule.'

This was my first purchase from Backcountry and this response was a bit disappointing, on top of not getting something I had expected. I can't afford a different tent, so exchange isn't really an option.

But the tent seems great, and it was very easy to set up even in my small kitchen. I just wish I had know about the single vestibule (definitively) and that it didn't come with the gear loft (and doesn't even seem to be compatible with one).

Get an RMA number and return the tent...They will refund your credit card and you can then buy what you want...

Did it come with footprint?

Responded on

It did come with the footprint, and it's a great tent so I'm not going to return it. The misinformation is just a bit frustrating, particularly regarding the 1 vs 2 vestibule issue. But for two people, this is a great tent and actually roomy enough for two, and small packs will fit in the vestibule. Split between two people, each person is only carrying 2 1/2 pounds, which is not bad to have a fully enclosed, free standing tent.

Also, just noticed that Backcountry STILL hasn't changed the vestibule number in the description... There is only one!
