    Details

    When you need more room, pitch the Marmot Halo Tent.

    The Marmot Halo Tent's extra-large interior easily holds all six members of your family during a weekend trip, and its four-pole design withstands a stormy day in a remote base camp. Marmot used a double-door, double-vestibule design to allow easy entry as well as provide tons of out-of-the-rain storage space for boots and packs. The 81in interior height allows a six-foot person to easily stand up straight in the middle. Needless to say, there will be plenty of room for card games when you're stuck in the Halo Tent during a three-day storm.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    At least it has a great warranty

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I really hope I can update this review later on and add more stars but as of right now, I have a really sour taste in my mouth which is such a bummer!!
    We have two big dogs (husky and wirehaired pointer) and a toddler along with my husband and I, so we purchased this tent so we would have plenty of room to sleep comfortably, and fit a pack n' play if needed. It is excellent for that! Tons of room, and great head room!
    Here is the bummer part... I have literally only set up this tent twice, and had to cut our camping trip short...
    The first time I set it up, I was in our backyard just to see how big it was and how to set it up and get familiar with it.. and a pole bent! It made the tent lean to one side, so that was a total bummer and showed me how not durable the poles are if you only set it up once and that happens.
    I figured it would still be okay, so we took it up camping the following weekend, and set it up there, and one more of the smaller poles (halo part) bent as well!! AND we go two rips in the tent too. One of the clips to attach the poles to the tent just ripped right off... total bummer! We just packed up and left we were so bugged by it.
    So I hit up Marmot about this, and they hooked it up, I sent back the tent to them, and they repaired it in about two-three weeks time for me. I just got it back the other day, and we are planning to take it out camping this weekend. So I really hope I can provide an update with better stars and a more raving review about this tent. I SO wanted to love it, but right now I am torn, just like my tent.

    Great Product - Even Better Service!

      Backcountry.com rules. I was setting up my new tent for the first time and accidentally bent one of the poles and created a slight tear in the material at the same time. I was distraught as it was the initial erection. I knew I had done something wrong setting it up, and now the tent was messed up. I contacted backcountry.com this morning, and via chat was able to set up a replacement at no charge within 5 minutes. Love Backcountry!

      AMAZING tent!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This was my first 'serious' tent purchase, all previous tents being small and cheap. I was hesitant to spend the money, but after researching many 6-person tents, my husband and I decided on the Halo 6 for several reasons. First was quality, and boy has this tent delivered. The full rain fly has been put to the test and I'm happy to report that we stayed completely dry. The poles are extremely sturdy and the tent and fly material is rugged. This tent is so easy to set-up, I've done it by myself several times. Second, we needed a tent with some height as my husband is 6'. He can comfortably stand in the tent with a lamp hanging in the middle with plenty of room to spare. Finally, we needed floor space. It's just the 2 of us, but we have 2 full size dogs. A queen air mattress and the dogs bedding all fits with room to spare for our gear. 2 fairly good sized vestibules helps out a lot as well.

      The poles that hold the rain fly off the tent do a good job at letting fresh air circulate in. I hope to never have to use the lifetime manufacturers warranty, however it's nice knowing it's there if needed. This is by far the best tent we've owned! I've already recommended it to several friends.

      AMAZING tent!

      Great option for families car camping

        First off, this tent is big in the stuff sack, so definitely not for backpacking. But for a group of 3-4 car camping, it's a great option. I'm 6'3" and can stand in the middle with room to spare. Have only used it one night so far, but I was able to set it up with my 10 year old and it maybe took 10 minutes. Love all the vents you can open and they double as pockets. Speaking of pockets, a ton of them at both sides. Poles are good quality, as are the stakes. Using wider type air mattresses, the floor space gets a bit tight for four people. Seems like it would be very good in the rain with the high peak angle.

        Awesome for Glamping...

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This tent isn't my normal style, which is lightweight backpacking, but I needed a new car-camping tent to use as a base station in a campground when I was on a work detail most of the summer back in 2013. It's gigantic! Almost embarrassingly so, but it was great for long periods away from home since I could comfortably fit all my gear plus a table and chair and have a refuge to hang out in during inclement weather. And while the description says a 6' person can stand in it, that's an understatement, because my 6'5" husband can stand in it with plenty of headroom. We've been using it both as a base station for work trips to some property we own in Northwestern Montana, and also as a backyard 'guest room' for overflow sleeping space in the summer. It's so large and comfy that guests actually enjoy it. It's also sturdy in a storm, and very stable even in high winds. Have stayed it in a couple of downpours with wind-driven rain and stayed perfectly dry. My only complaint is the webbing on two of the corners where the stakes poke through the grommet is starting to show some wear around the edges of the grommet. I think the grommet is a long way from pulling out of the webbing, but even if it does, I'm not really worried as Marmot is typically great about standing behind their products. Also, a person buying it should be aware that this tent is 10'x10' with two 4' vestibules, and it may not handily fit in some regular tent sites in National and State park campgrounds.

        Awesome for Glamping...

        A great beast of a family tent

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        This thing is a beast - in a great way.
        My family got it last year and used for 3 nights in Mendocino area for our first time family car camping. Little ones then were under a year and just shy of 3 years plus mom and dad. With our gear, bags, pack-n-play all inside, we have tons of room to play around in, inside games, stand up, and stow items away. Yes, it is huge. And yes, it takes lots of space in a campsite pad. But it is perfect for car camping for a family. Very happy with the purchase. Pricy, but given that I'm taking my little ones into the outdoors, I want it to be cozy, fun and safe. Definitely recommend the tent.

        Everything we hoped for!

          After much research I finally went with my gut and chose this tent for my family of 5. With 3 children ranging from 8 mo to almost 5 yrs we still had plenty of room in this. We love the color and design. We didn't have any issues with poles bending during setup as others have said. I'll definitely be looking for more marmot products in the future.

          Everything we hoped for!

          Best Car Camping Tent

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          This tent is awesome! Hands down my favorite. Took it out first day I had it and its super easy to put up. really stable and you can tell its something durable. Really impressed so far and stoked to use it again. This thing is huge and plenty of room to hang out in if the weather turns south. Also the vestibules are really spacious. We were able to get a large dog crate in the vestibule and there was still a little room to open the door to let them out. If your looking for tent this size look no more. Hands down its the best tent and will not disappoint.

          My first "serious" camping tent (Family)

            I haven't yet camped in this, but was excited to set it up for a test run in the backyard. Because I was having trouble visualizing the reality of the floorspace inside the tent, I threw some real-life family camping props into the tent and took some photos. Included were a queen-size sleeping bag, two kiddie-size bags (54"x 22") and the mat from the Pack 'n' Play crib. In the vestibule, I put two 30 gallon totes, and about three 16 gallon totes. (I'm thinking I will actually keep our clothes out here in the totes, as it seems many duffles in the tent will make for some crowded conditions -- let me know if you've tried this). Hope this helps put size in perspective. I may increase my rating once I've actually tried it in the "wilds" of the WI park system.

            My first "serious" camping tent (Family)

            Favorite Purchase

              We have a family of 4 and this works perfectly with 2 kids blow up mattresses and a queen blow up mattress. Were in a massive windstorm in CO and it held up like a beauty!

              The extra cover/porch was just big enough for us to put fold out chairs and enjoy the tent while the wind blew everyone to Kansas.

              Favorite Purchase

              Great headroom for a tall person

                Great tent, easy to pitch, hard to fault in any way. The best thing about it is the headroom. I'm 6'3" and I can stand up in the tent without my head touching the roof. Comfortably had 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog in the tent with plenty of room.

                A Nice Tent But,....

                  I bought as a replacement for a Kelty that was showing it's age. It's main use is family car camping. We're a family of four with a 4 year old and a 6 year old. The tent is intuitive and easy to put up. I can have it up in about 10 minutes by myself. The tent is roomy enough for all four of us(feels larger than a 10x10), the ventilation seems to be ok, but we haven't used it in the summer months, yet. The side ventilation is nice! I love the large double vestibules...the only thing I wish is that at least one of the vestibules had a window. There are lots of storage pockets in the inside of tent, probably more than we'd ever use. It has rained on us twice and it did it's job by keeping us nice and dry...no leaks!. But, on our last trip...we knew a cold front was coming through with possible windy conditions so, I had the tent fully guyed out. In the early morning hours we were awaken when the strong winds and driving rain came in...the side facing the wind collapsed! I would later find out the tent poles facing the wind had bent at almost 90 degree angles and also bending the Halo poles. I was quite disappointed! But, knowing the Marmot brand (i've owned several of their backpacking tents and still have a Limelight2 that I use), I thought perhaps there may have been a defect in the poles or perhaps...it was just too big of storm for a tent this large to handle? Anyway, after pondering whether to replace the tent with another brand...I decided to stick with the Halo 6. We found out, except for that one storm, we were really loving this tent! I was looking into replacing the damaged poles and quickly found out about Backcountry's 100% satisfaction policy. So, instead of replacing the poles...Backcountry sent me a brand new Halo 6. How's that for customer service! We haven't used the new Halo 6 yet but, I'll be glad to update if any issues pop up. But for now, I'm very pleased. I'd recommend the tent. I'm giving it 4 stars eventhough we had one bad event while using it.

                  We've used the tent several times since my original review. We continue to enjoy the tent with zero problems. We've been huddled down in it in a few FL thunderstorms without and leaks or issues with the poles. As a family car camping tent I would highly recommend the Marmot Halo 6. I give it 5 Stars, now!

                  Awsome tent

                    Finally got to use Our new Marmot Halo 6 tent, and it preformed very well. Set up is simple, but best with 2 people, as the tent is tall, and the fly is difficult to apply alone. We set up in the rain, and 45MPH gusts of wind. Once set up, the tent was stable, and rain proof, through 2 days of gusty wind and rain, while other tents toppled over, or leaked. We are very happy with this tent, and would recommend it to others to buy. The quality seems very high, and the design is very roomy and spacious. 6 people might be a little crowded, but with the 2 large vestibles, there is plenty of extra storage sheltered from the elements mother nature has in mind.

                    Awsome tent

                    Sweet Tent

                      Awesome tent...love the vertical sides thanks to the halo. Makes it so much easier in the morning when you are sore or stiff from the day before.

                      My kids especially love how big the tent is.

                      Super easy it is to put up even in the wind. I always end up putting it up by myself and letting everybody start exploring.

                      Marmot Halo Arrived

                        The tent arrived quickly. The shipping form Backcountry was awesome.

                        Set it up last night in the yard and per the other posts on this tent, I bent both poles when erecting the tent. The bends are likely not catastrophic (yet), but I am disappointed that this seems to be a common ailment for what looks to be a really nice tent. I don't even mind the bent poles so much as long as they all fold up nice and get back in the bag, but it bothers me the replacement poles are $100. They are aluminum poles. Why isn't a replacement set more like $20+S&H? If these poles end up breaking I will return the entire tent back to Backcountry for a replacement tent, but why even go through the hassle? Unless the cost of the replacement poles comes down significantly, I'd stay away from this tent and the hassle. Don't get me wrong. It is a nice tent. Very roomy, easy to erect, etc., but after spending $500 I'd like to think I am entitled to a little construction quality. The bending poles is just gross oversight on the part of Marmot. Drop the price of replacement poles Marmot or at least send free replacements to those of us that bent them on the first erection of the tent. At this point (after first erection) I am not a strong reference for your products.

                        Chris H., Gilbert, AZ.

                        I managed to get a light bend on one of the four poles when my 2-year helped me set up the tent and got a little bit too much into it, but it was not hard to gently bend it back into its original state. In normal operation I would say, this wouldn't normally happen. I would also rather have somwhat soft and flexible aluminum, poles then hardened ones that snap catastrophically (I have had that happen at High Altitude before on a different tent, and it's not fun).

                        How does the Halo 6P compare to the Limestone 6P. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the two in comparison?

                        The main difference between the two is the size and weight, The halo has a larger interior space and vestibule. Its also heavier and has a larger pack size.



                        The advantage of the limestone is that its smaller and cheaper, plus it is lighter then the halo.



                        The Halo would be better for car camping with more people/stuff. The limestone would be a better hiking tent because of the size and weight.



                        The Halo is also orange, so when the natural light comes through the tent the interior will light up orange, where as the limestone will have a more natural light if you get the white walled version.

                        So this tent is 10' by 10' correct? How much usable room is in this tent? I have a Double or Queen sized air mattress, will there be room for extras inside? We plan on having a few kids in the near future and don't want to have to replace the tent right away. Just got it and with it being winter can't put it up to check yet.

                        with any tent, your not going to get the full 10by10, the walls being slanted in cuts of bit of use able space, with a twin and a queen i think you will completely fill the floor of your tent and leave yourself with little to no room for gear etc. a much easier way to go would be you and your wife take the air matress and the kids can sleep on ground pads, which will save alot of room

                        like the specs say, you will have approx 100+/- Sq.Ft. of "usable space". with this tent you also have the additional storage area in the vestibule area. i have spent time in one however i own mountain hardware and TNF tents. with this tent, it is cool how the poles actually push outward, giving even a bit more room. one thing i would have wanted would be more gear loops inside. hope this helps.

                        I just received this tent and set it up outside (haven't actually slept in it yet). By my measurements, the interior dimensions seem closer to 9'6" x 9'6". It's 10' x10' if you measure from grommet to grommet on the corner straps. Here's a queen-size sleeping bag, 2 kid sacks, and a pack n play mat. Leaves a little room to walk and maybe some for a dog or your actual luggage. The vestibules are pretty large though.

                        2 vestibules. The center of the tent is 6'5" but the halo design keeps the walls mostly vertical. Dude in this video doesn't state how tall he is, but he is jumping around inside this tent and gives a pretty thorough review:

                        I heard the 100sq ft floor is actually smaller. That marmot might have measured the floor material instead of the acutal area. I need to make the wife happy and she will not be happy unless I can get a queen size air mattress and a pack and play in this tent. Now Her current tent is 1900 sq ft but broke last trip but a bunch of space is not used cause of the way the ends of that tent tapered down to the small side doors. If this tent will not work what are some other tents I should look at.

                        Best Answer

                        I'm not sure if I can get all of these, but I'll give it a shot.

                        - It does not come with a footprint, but there is one for it on this site, item #MAR1110. Just put that in the search bar and hit enter.

                        - It will do an excellent job in rain, wind (up to probably 35-40 if you guy it out), and condensation.

                        - The zippers are very durable and will last a long time, but the fastest killers of zipper are sand (usually not a problem) and stepping on them. Make it very very clear that no one can step on the zippers, teeth or sliders, ever.

                        - Marmot's warranty is quite good, and can be seen here: http://www.marmot.com/node/343

                        - It comes in one bag, a cylinder 25 inches long and 14 across and 19 pounds, so you can judged for yourself whether that's easy to carry.

                        - The sleeping pattern for big square tents like this is usually two people across at the head and feet, and four people side by side in the middle.

                        - I'm quite surprised that you haven't heard of Marmot, they have a fantastic reputation for jackets, tents, and other soft goods.

                        Besides, if anything goes wrong with the tent, whether Marmot covers it or not, you can always return it to Backcountry for a full refund. Any time, any condition. That's why Backcountry has 73,000 registered customers.

                        Is this tent available to buy right now? I have been told Marmot is only making 100 and if I am lucky I can get one but not until January 09. Is this true?
