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

Here's what others have to say...

the plastic union at the apex of poles broke, after not much use. still functions, but how would I get a replacement? Great tent. My family of four (two boys 10 and 12) have used it quite a bit.

Awesome 2 person + 1 Large Dog Tent

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

Received this tent a couple days ago (thanks to Backcountry's amazing service)and used it this weekend. Super easy setup and takedown, well ventilated (even in Alabama), roomy enough for 2 people on a queen size air mattress plus 1 large dog on a large dog bed (still had room). I also like that it came with a footprint as well as a gear loft - BONUS! The only thing I'm not wild about are the little "Made in China" tags proudly displayed all over everything (bring it back to the STATES!!!!). Would recommend as a car camper, but if divvied up properly between 3 people, I could definitely see using for a backpacker too... Hope this helps!

Ouch! What a cliffhanger. You were about to tell us what you didn't like about the tent. Seems pretty important. Care to finish that last sentence?

Couldn't be more happy...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I will normally research a product to death before I buy, and when looking for a tent it was no different. I was looking for a 4p tent, that could was light enough to take backpacking and be split up between my girlfriend, her 12 year old daughter and myself, as well as could handle the unexpected Uinta weather. My search came down to the Marmot Limelight 4p, or the Nemo Asashi 4p (only because I felt it had a slightly better minimalist setup with just the footprint, poles and rainfly), but since the Asashi was sold out, the Limelight 4p was the obvious choice.

I live in Salt Lake City, so after running down to the Backcountry retail store I picked up the tent and was back to work in 35 minutes (phenomenal customer service btw) and was ready to test the tent out the following weekend on a small car camping trip in the Timpanogos. True to Utah weather, it ended up raining from Friday evening at about 8pm, until Sunday until about 10am... and I am talking the ENTIRE time. There was everything from light to pretty heavy rain, but all the while the tent stayed completely dry, and surprisingly warm, on the inside. The first night it dropped to about 54 degrees at night, and the tent was actually warm with the three of us in there, and the second night it was in the low 40s. I did notice on the second night (after a 3am pee run) that with all 3 of us in the tent mouth breathing, there was a very small amount of condensation on the roof of the tent, but as we had the tent buttoned down, I would have expected much more.

The rain finally stopped on Sunday, just in time for us to pack everything up and head back down the hill, and once home I just set the tent up loosely in the driveway, and it was completely dry in the matter of about 20 minutes, even after the rain fly was still pooling water when I pulled it out of the sac.

I could not be more happier with this tent, and attached is a picture of it fully soaked on Sunday morning when the rain finally stopped.

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

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.
