    Details

    If it isn't easy, you're doing it wrong.

    Setting up a tent shouldn't feel like a title bout with the heavyweight champion of the world, so keep it simple with the Marmot Limelight 3P Tent. Its color-coded clips and poles makes for easy set ups, and the Marmot Zone construction offers more livable space so you can comfortably kick back after a day spent fishing, hiking, or mountain biking. Marmot hooked the Limelight up with a mesh canopy for stargazing, a seam-taped fly to repel those frequent summer rainstorms, added mesh fly vents to keep things cool during those hot and muggy nights when the bugs are out. The large D-shaped door makes it a whole lot easier to get in after a long night sipping cocktails by the campfire.

    works well, footprint is too loose

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

    I've only used it on one trip so far. I was alone so it was definitely spacious, but I got it with the hope of being spacious as a 2 person tent, which it is. It is more difficult to set up alone than a normal tent - I suggest connecting the "hook" at the center of the poles first so that the pole ends you already put in the grommets don't come out as you're going around the tent. Two main issues I have with the tent: first, the poles (well, 1 segment really) are not straight which means they are bulkier when folded up. It's a bit annoying that it doesn't get more compact, but what can you do? It probably doesn't make a huge difference in the end. The bigger issue I had is that the footprint seemed too big. Not the fabric area itself but the straps at the corners that have the grommets. They only fit the tent poles loosely so it was a struggle keeping the footprint in place while setting up the rest of the tent by myself. Not sure if others have had this experience. Otherwise it is a solid tent. It rained all of the last night and the inside stayed dry.

    Awesome tent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I absolutely love this tent. I use it for motocamping. I was able to pack it smaller than specified in the specs. Currently 20x7 with all components rolled together.
    The design of the tent with the bottom portion being vertical for the first 18" is genius. Space is perfect for 2 people and all of your gear.

    Awesome tent!

    Excellent tent for TWO people!!!

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

    Tent is super easy to set up! I had my inexperienced teenager set it up and it took him just under 5 minutes! You could fit a 3rd person in there but two sleep very comfortably with plenty or room for gear. Only used a couple of times but seems to be a quality tent!! Haven't used it in extreme conditions but will update review when I do. Great tent for the money!!!

    Built for a lumberjack sized boyfriend..

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    ...and his tinier girlfriend. After weekends squeezed into a two person with my guy and our packs, I upgraded to the Marmot. We've backpacked with it (each of us carrying part of it) in all four seasons. It's been to Joshua Tree, The Gunks, Old Loggers Path and The Black Forest Trail. It's been roomy for both of us and our sizable packs and kept us dry in all day torrential thunderstorms. For our backpacking and camping it was a great investment! Easy and quick to put up and stake down and the stash pockets have kept all our smaller backpacking items in one place and organized. Totally recommend this tent!

    This tent actually has two doors.

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

    Note that the Tech Specs incorrectly state that the tent only has 1 door. This new version is a huge upgrade from the previous Limelights. It has 45% more interior room than the previous version!

    So Nice!

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

    Recently took this tent out for the first time and gotta say that I love how spacious it is! It's a bit taller and wider than our TNF tent that we came from. It is very intuitive to assemble which is awesome for inclement weather that comes out of nowhere as you're setting up camp. Great tent for 2 people and all your gear! Love the double vestibule option. We usually just put up 1 but it's nice to have the double when you need to hunker down. Definitely would recommend this tent to any couple or small family looking to tackle the great outdoors!

    Unanswered Question

    Could you summarize the main differences between the 3-person marmots, specifically the Tungsten, Catalyst, and Limelight? Long-time outdoors-man, first-time new tent purchaser :)

    Hi there,
    Could you please explain the "floor dimensions"? How can a square/rectangle have 3 different measures? Not quite sure I get what the "48 x 68 x 90 in" is representing. Sounds like floor dimension should be 68x90 (=6120 sq in = 42.5 sq ft). What is 48 representing?
    thanks,
