Description

Marmot gives families expedition-level performance with the Halo Tent.

Marmot designed a unique pole design to steepen the Halo 4-Person Tent's walls and increase usable living space for you and the rest of your family. This spacious tent includes several wall pockets to keep things organized, and the double vestibules provide shelter for anything that doesn't fit inside. Though Marmot designed this tent for family camping, they also included tough DAC press-fit poles, floor-level vents, and other features that you usually only see on expedition shelters.

A++++ Tent. Would sleep again.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fits 4, but comfortably fits 3. Great tent though. Super quick to set up and take down, and the quality of the materials seems great. Spent 9 days in it earlier this year and can't think of anything bad to say about it. Nice big pockets inside to stash all your loose stuff.

Love it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this tent for car camping w/2 adults and a large dog and it is perfect size for the 3 of us, plus a couple packs. Set up is ridiculously easy. I love the halo pole design/straight walls, it does make the interior feel much larger than other 4 person tents. The color isn't as bright as online photos lead me to believe, and it is downright cheery inside the tent, even on a rainy day. I went back and forth between this tent and the REI Base Camp. While I liked the slightly larger vestibule on the Base Camp, Marmot won because of the halo design, I had more faith in the Marmot rain fly coverage vs. the REI, and most importantly, the side vents on the Halo zip while the REI ones do not. It is a 3 season tent and I want the option of zipping them shut on chilly nights. In the Marmot's maiden voyage, we had some good downpours and it performed beautifully. I mainly camp in the humid northeastern US and have not yet had the chance to use this without the rain fly. I can't wait to camp in a more arid climate, as the mesh dome top of the tent would create spectacular star gazing opportunities.

Great Tent

Easy to use - heaps of space - great for car camping - have done 2 adults and 2 young kids easily - good vestibule space. Got a little extra bend in some of poles after a while. Has really stood up well to heaps of use. Better in slightly warmer weather in my opinion. Everything it is cracked up to be

Wondering how well this tent performs in cool weather (i.e. around zero degrees celsiuis). We have had a Marmot Swallow for years and love that all mesh areas can be zipped up with nylon to retain heat in cooler weather. Keeping a couple of window flaps open with the fly vents still provides good venting in cool temperatures. There is no comparable Marmot tent for 4 people though, the Halo was recommended as an alternate. I'm not sure about all that mesh - good venting yes, but lots of heat loss on close to zero nights? appreciate any insights from anyone who has used in colder weather. Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

JT...your concerns are quite valid. I have a HALO 4 and when it gets really cool to cold all that mesh works against you. I saw your question posted as I was looking up HALO 4 specs to compare to other tents as I'm now looking for something more suitable for colder weather...the HALO 4...while an outstanding tent...simply is too "breezy" in cold weather.

Is the packed size listed compressed? If not how small can this tent pack down, in a compression sack, without the poles, relative to an object?

Picture would be helpful.

Halo 4 Rocks!

This tent rocks. Easy to set up, and virtually bombproof. I have been in some major, extended, thunderstorms in Upstate NY and stayed dry as a bone. Excellent ventilation, storage pouches,and vestibule space. The two doors are great especially with kids. Love this tent.

The gear loft loops can easily hold a lantern, and there is one right in the middle. I have a small Black Diamond lantern I use in my tent, works awesome.. There are 5 loops here

Smilefest 2010

We used the tent @ Smilefest last weekend and loved it! It went up in less than 5 min. We put a queen size inflat. mattress w/ our bags and still had plenty of room to change. It rained basically the whole wkend and it kept us dry. The design works perfect keeping you cool in those "no wind" times. We love it!

We camp in windy places, how well does this product hold up in the wind?

Best Answer Responded on

One issue this design has is high-profile walls that will fight the wind. It has a good pole-design to create solid stability, but in high winds it will at least get loud and shake. The fly design aids this substantially, particularly if you pitch it facing or tailing the wind. My experience with Marmot is that, regardless of the shaking and noise, it will not fold in normal winds.

If you are looking for a tent that you will pitch in consistently high winds, I would recommend something with lower profile walls and better curves, but that will sacrifice interior space and comfort.

How well will this tent fit 4 guys? We're 6'3", 6', 5'11", 5'9" - all athletically built? Will we have to sleep head to toe?

Also - the spec's say it's not seam sealed (taped?). Anyone had issues with water finding it's way through the fly seams during extended periods of rain?

Best Answer Responded on

At 64 square feet the Halo 4 is pretty roomy for a 4 person tent. If you plan on sleeping 4 guys, however, you won't have much room for gear. You might consider the Halo 6 if you want to spread out. Also, the specs are incorrect, all Marmot tents, including the Halo's, have fully taped flys and floors. Hope that helps.

Kiddies can set it up!

I've used this tent several times in southern China leading rural backcountry hikes with teenagers. It goes up in a flash, is hassle free, and is warm on chilly nights. It says its a four person tent but there is room for 5 or 6 smaller people. The vestibules are HUGE!
Rain doesn't stand a chance against this behemoth if it is guyed properly.

Great tent

Bought this tent for car camping, so weight wasn't an issue. Set up is a breeze. Up in 3 mins between two people, 5 minutes with only one person. No condensation at all. A feature that is not mentioned here is the 'stake tape.' The strip of fabric where you put the stake doesn't have one hole. It has multiple ones all along. It lets you place the stake at any point. Gives you a lot of flexibility. I would def. buy again.

Is the tent completely free standing? Or does the rain fly have to be staked in order to properly work?

Best Answer Responded on

The tent is free standing, but to create a vestibule the rain fly needs to be staked out at each door. It's always a good idea to stake or somehow anchor your tent to keep it from becoming a giant kite in the wind.

It's a pole splint, so if you get a fracture in the pole and you're out in the field, you can slide that over the end and reinforce that area.

Does the orange part of the doors pull back so that there can be just mesh while closed?

Best Answer Responded on

No, it doesn't. It's part of the door. It gives a bit of privacy.

How well does this tent keep you dry and warm?

Responded on

There is no insulation in this tent, you will need appropriate sleeping bags and then with the rain fly, you will stay dry
