Description

Take two go-karts or one cushy luxo-cruiser?

You're going camping with three buddies. You could carry two tiny, cramped tents, or you could split the weight and travel in style with the Marmot Limelight 4-Person 3-Season Tent. The Limelight provides plenty of room for you and your buddies to play a few rounds of poker before you hit the hay, and by dividing the components between packs, you can all travel lighter.
  • Bare Bones fast-pitch option lets you carry just the poles, fly, and footprint to save extra weight on trail (footprint included)
  • Polyurethane-coated floor and fly repel rain so you and your gear stay dry inside
  • Fully taped fly and floor seams prevent water from sneaking in through fabric joints
  • Window Weld waterproof window construction in the fly allows you to view outside of your tent without having to get out of your bag
  • Catenary Cut floor means the floor material curves a few inches up the tent walls to reduce direct seam-to-ground contact
  • Two doors and two vestibules give you and a partner easy entry, exit, and gear storage
  • Mesh panels fight interior condensation to help you sleep during bouts of muggy weather
  • DAC press-fit poles are easy to assemble day or night and save weight without sacrificing durability or strength
  • Reflective detailing helps you identify stealthy guy-lines at night
  • Included gear loft increases your storage space and ability to organize
  • Noise-free zippers prevent waking up cranky trail partners

Good Basics, Poor Details

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We ordered 4 of these tents for packtrip outfitting this summer. They have been used for the last 4 trips.
The pros:
1. spacious
2. easy to assemble
3. nice layout
4. good weight

The Cons:
1. the poles bend and are not durable
2. the stuff sacks for all of them are ripping

It is a decent product but will not last you long. Disappointed in the quality of the craftsmanship. The overall basics are good but the usage potential and life span is short.

Great tent for family car camping

Great tent for family car camping

at Pichi Traful lake, Nahuel Huapi National Park, Patagonia (the region, not the brand), Argentina.
We've used this tent several times at Patagonia for family camping, traveling by car. Great storm resistance (wind+heavy rain). Very easy to set up and down, the included footprint and gear loft are very helpfull accesories.

Nice Tent

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I purchased a Limelight last year, it was a close choice between it and the Mountain Hardwear. i used it last year camping and hunting in Montana. Although I was satisfied, when my second tent, a Kelty died, I ordered the Moauntain Hardwear tent to see how I would like it. The Marmot seemed superioir in all of the details and workmanship. I returned it and ordered a second Limlight. The way the poles connect, the way the fly connects and how the tent gets staked down are all superior

This is the bomb...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got mine about 18 months ago and I have used it many times. It is best for car camping unless you split the weight. I use it many times by myself for just a relaxing weekend in the great outdoors. It provides me with plenty of space for a cot and all my gear.
I have been in torrential downpours and it has always remained dry. The fact that it came with footprint and gear loft was a plus. I read where some were commenting on just 1 window. Mine it the green version and I have 2 windows. Never noticed until I checked this past weekend. Got the tent at a great price and I think that it will be with me for many years to come.

Marmot Limestone Tent 4P

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used this tent for car-camping and it stood up to the varying elements Tasmania had to offer. Love it, quick and easy to erect and pack away, well ventilated, quick drying, loads of space and height. Only gripe, the footprint seems too big for the tent, the straps seem to be to long but I have addressed this, with a bit of bungee-cord.

5 star quality tent with plenty of space

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We've used this for a week car-camping around the coast, facing everything from hot, humid, muggy weather to gale force winds and torrential rain. This tent has resisted it all, even when the winds were strong enough to force the tent walls down on top of us - no snapped poles or torn fly. And it breathes really well with plenty of mesh, so no stuffy tent when you wake up.
Fast to put up and down, light to carry, good size for a small group, and a great size for a couple of people with a queen inflatable mattress. Dries quickly, cleans easily. Top quality tent from Marmot and highly recommended.

Great car camping tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We've had this tent for a little more than a year now. We decided that this year we would car camp and go to all of our state parks here in Pennsylvania. My wife and I love this tent it sets up quickly and has more than enough room for two or three people and all your gear. The vestibules are very large which is nice. Twice we had very rainy days so we moved all the gear to one vestibule and even though its not recommended we used the other vestibule to cook under with a backup pocket rocket. The tent is also well built. We visited Cherry Springs state park (highly recommended best star gazing in PA) and the first night we had heavy and sustained wind and rain. In the morning we noticed our tent was unscathed. My only real dislikes are the fact it only has one window in one vestibule, it?s a bit on the heavy side, and its bulky even when compressed making it difficult to take backpacking. we gave this tent a workout this season we used it more than a dozen times every where from shores near lake Erie, rocky boulder strewn open spaces, to deep in the woods in potter county.

Here's a shot of one vestibule with a 35 liter pack. The tent is on slanted ground, hence the slightly off-kilter symmetry.

You can see the window on the right (there is only one) and a vent on the left. The other vestibule has a vent, but no window.

Spacious Car Camping, Option to Carry

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this tent because I was tired of car camping in a cramped backpacking solo shelter. I also wanted Multi-functionality so I bought this tent vs a car camping specific tent in the event a couple friends and I could split the load for a backcountry trip. Normally, I exhaustively review my options but the reviews for this tent seemed unanimous on the quality and it had features I was looking for in addition to the ground sheet and gear hammock included with initial purchase. I am pleased to say that this tent met and exceeded my expectations.
My first use was a 10 day trip to Crested Butte, Colorado where I established a base camp from which I did bike rides and hikes. The tent was so roomy inside(of course, it's a 4P) that I had my fat car camping pad on one side (it will accommodate a low cot), clothes and some gear organized on the other with plenty of room for a Crazy Creek camp chair for reading. Plenty of head room for chair sitting, kneeling, crawling around, wardrobe changes and it rained almost every evening but I peacefully kept my Kindle company while the thunderstorms (on some days) raged outside without the least bit of cabin fever. I had no condensation issues but its a big space for one person. The gear loft is a tight fit but you won't be banging your head on it while you move around inside. It did not sag.
The tent was very easy to set up alone. I didn't even read the instructions but went on what previous reviewers said about color-coded poles and tabs. If you have some experience with tents you could do it too. The only thing I missed at first were 2 pop out vents near both vestibule doors that I noticed on the 2nd day of camping.
It has a tight pitch that did not sag after getting wet which does wonders to preserve ventilation. My tent came with guy lines. I read that this was not the case for everyone. I was short 1 stake and I am sure I did not lose it.
The alpenglow colored one is very bright and cheery inside.

Great Tent!!

We used this tent for a weekend camping trip in Virginia. It rained the first night and although we used a tarp over the top, we sleep dry. We used the provided footprint and had no leakage in the tent at all. It got a little hot the second night from all the rain (muggy) because we kept the rainfly on, but I would imagine that if we had taken it off. We would have been fine. I would highly recommend this tent for late summer camping. I can't wait to go out again!!

Great Tent!!

Hi, this is a very good tent, the poles look very light and strong, the images are only to show what is in it, I forget to include the foot print and gear loft, but all it is OK.

Simple Dependability

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I run a small dual sport motorcycle touring company. We bought 2 of these bad boys last year and used the often. We love the hell out of them. They are super easy and very quick to set up. The construction and material makes them very dependable and sturdy even with all the abuse they get strapped on to motorcycles and "thrown" around the campsite. As we prep for Canada in a few weeks these bad boys will no doubt be heavily used this year again. Great purchase!!!!

Very nice tent and bikes. I miss riding these days.

Great tent

We have it in green - we also have a halo 4. This was a little cheaper and slightly less roomy than the halo 4. A bit more vertical height and a little less side height if that makes sense. We find this tent a bit warmer overnight than the halo - a few less vents and a bit hotter in summer - due to the colour and less vents. Great tent, rock solid construction, good value ( particularly when on sale). No rear vestibule or rear door - but not a problem. Have camped with two adults and 2 kids in this and not so heavy for short hiking in if other three are taking some load

When they say "gear loft" are they talking...

Posted on

When they say "gear loft" are they talking about the built in vestibule in the rain fly? Or is there something extra that I can't seem to find?

Best Answer Responded on

The gear loft is a hanging bag that comes with the tent that you can use to store your extra gear. Check out Marmot's Curly's Clips video posted earlier on this page. He shows you the gear loft towards the end of the video.

Responded on

It's not really a "bag" per se, but more like a square platform that hangs from four points on the inside ceiling. Weigh it down with enough stuff and it sags enough to look like a bag though.

Holds quite a lot. Very useful and adds virtually nothing to the trail weight.

This just in

  • Gender: Male

Just got the Limelight 4p tent and I have to say I am VERY impressed.

Things I like about it:
Connection points are quality.
Size - Not sure if most people leaving reviews are big guys, but I see plenty of room for 4, it also may differ on how much gear you're carrying, but with 3 people there is plenty of gear space.
Height - good overhead room both in height and overall space.
Rain fly fits oversized for storing gear outside of tent if you need to.
2 doors

the only thing I was a little bit worried about:
Overall weight - the tent with everything is over 9 lbs. You can ditch stuff to bring it down to 8.5 but over all it is pretty heavy.

I will have to report once it warms up and i can take it out. This is just a first impression from setting up in my living room. Overall I'm pumped about it.

Marmont/Limelight tent

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this tent. Major wind, on side of wheeler peak, Nevada, flash flood rain on white rim trail, Utah. the tent kept us safe, warm and dry. This tent is roomy, I'm 6' 4" and it is easy to change in, fits 4 people with out trouble. very easy to set up, but look at directions first time. Highly recommend this tent.
