    Details

    Because your mummy bag's tight enough.

    Give yourself a little extra headroom with the Marmot Limelight 2P Two-Person Three-Season Tent. Made with Marmot's Zone Construction, the Limelight 2P has a smart design that maximizes space, so you have plenty of room to kick back, relax, and play a quick game of cards with your tent mate after a long day spent hiking, climbing, or mountain biking.

    Marmot gave the Limelight everything it needs to withstand the elements, like a durable 68D polyester rain fly with fully taped seams, stout DAC Pressfit aluminum poles, and a footprint to protect the tent's floor from wear and water. This particular version of the Limelight sleeps two and has two vestibules, giving you and your tent mate plenty of space to store gear out of the rain, and comes with color coded clips and poles to make set up as painless as possible. Marmot also added a large double door and 1 rear D-shaped door to make getting gear in and out of the tent simple and convenient.

    Excellent Tent, Best in class

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have this tent for 4 years, it's tough, easy to pitch, relatively light, sufficient space, and in this price with gear loft and footprint it's the best deal you can get.
    Recently I've noticed that water are penetrating through the floor, but there was no apparent tear or wear, I contacted Marmot Warranty and they replaced my 4 years old tent with a brand new one! with no questions asked, no shipping for examination, and no delays, just went to the local dealer and got a new tent! Marmot Warranty is the best there is!

    A Great All-rounder

      I recently purchased this tent because I have a 2-person 4-season ultralight tent that just wasnt quite what I wanted for traditional camping/carcamping/campsite camping. I picked this up and am super happy.

      Marmot did a great job paying attention to the details. You can unzip the doors of the rainfly and there is a little hook and loop in the perfect spot to hold them open. The rainfly material seems sturdy and can be thrown on pretty quick. This thing is also SUPER roomy for a 2-person. you could probably get a large dog in there with you and your partner and be plenty comfortable.

      Even with the rainfly on I found this tent to have great ventilation and was a welcome change from the condensation of my single walled backpacking tent.

      My favorite features are the big giant doors on both sides. No more squeezing through awkwardly. Zip it all the way open and you have a tremendous door to huck your gear into and jump in and out of.

      I just used it on a 5 day canoe trip and it was great. It doesnt pack down very far but unless you really need to cram a lot of gear into a backpack this does the trick. Here is a picture camping along the green river in Moab. PC: Keith Fearnow

      A Great All-rounder

      Great in the rain!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      We are huge marmot fans and only looked into upgrading our marmot tent for another marmot tent! This tent is light and easy to put together. The super size door is my favorite part and has two zipper sets that enables you to get in either by the top or foot of your sleeping bag without unzipping the entire door. The inside mesh layer has pockets on the top of the tent to place a head lamp in for when it gets dark. On our first camping trip with this tent, it rained for 3 hours but there was no sign of puddles or anything remaining wet.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love the design of this tent with the curved poles near the base as it gives extra room for gear and for head/body. The included footprint is a plus also. I have owned tents previously that required separate purchase of a footprint. This tent is very easy to set up and take down and performed well in wet and dry conditions. I have used it both backpacking and car camping.

      Saved my life

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

      The day is April 23rd, 2016. The place - 38 degrees north, 109 West. The wind began to pick up as we packed up for the day and ventured out to explore Arches NP near Moab. I thought it might be prudent to put the cooler in the tent, just in case the wind were to pick up and decimate my guy lines, but decided it should be ok. By noon wind gusts had exceeded 50mph and every campsite we drove by had tents uprooted and rolling around. I thought surely my new Limelight would be another victim and perhaps damaged upon my return to camp, if it was even still there. To my infinite and delighted surprise, the tent was right where I left it. Upright, even. Now I'd like to think it was my expert midshipman's hitch that kept everything in order but, more likely, it was the 2 inches of sand that had managed to blow in under the fly and over the bathtub-style polyester floor. In any case, this thing held up and despite all the sand kept our sleeping bags, pads, and various overnight gear safe for the day. Thanks, Marmot.

      Love it

      As I'm sure we all do, I set this bad boy up the night I got it. The two year old has been telling me he wants to go camping ever since. Sets up quick and easy, light enough for short backpacking trips, spacious enough for me and the kid. Can't wait to really put it to use this coming spring/summer

      Limelight 2p Gets Better.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have been using the original Limelight for the past 2 years. It was affordable, durable, and never let rain or snow in when I properly guyed it out (have to admit sometimes I got lazy and didnt use the guy lines, it rained, we got a little wet). My only wish was that it had 2 doors so each of us in the tent could get out without bothering the other one. The major change to the new one is, IT DOES!

      The 2 doors was only scratching the surface of some of the improvements this year. The tent has slightly increased the interior height so a taller person can sit up inside of it. I am 5'8" and I easily had another 6" of space above my head when sitting inside. There is also more space inside the periphery of the tent. So all around the walls now have more vertical space. If you can see the way the poles pull the body of the tent out more near the ends where the last one just arced down.

      The new version also has mesh in better spots on the body of the tent. Before there was a big piece of nylon in the way from looking at the stars and now its more open. Breathability will be about the same, did notice that the new one has 2 small windows to aid in breathability where the last one only had one.

      I set this tent up alone in 15 minutes, with ski gloves on. You could easily cut that in half with another person and in a warmer climate where you dont need gloves! The tent does not come with the guy lines set up on the fly, I recommend setting the tent up at your house, tying all the guy lines on before you are in the field. It does come with self tension plates and again, all this is easier to set up in the comfort of your back yard. I will say that to really keep the wind/rain/snow out you need to have this guyed out at least on the 4 sides. Both doors and then the other 2 ends.

      I feel like people always comment about using a 3-season tent in the winter. With a tent like this you can get away with it. Its light enough to carry on shorter winter backpacking trips and as long as its not going to see really high winds will work just fine. For me this means I always grab this tent before the big expedition tent as long as I can ensure I will have some tree cover and the weather is not calling for snow at 2'/hour.

      Final word is that this tent does weigh a bit more than the Tungsten which is $50 less than the Lime Light (strictly talking 2 person). The 3 person Lime Light is lighter and has more room than the Tungsten 3 person where the 2 person Limelight is heavier but, slightly bigger. The Limelight regardless of how many people will always have a little more height around the periphery so more head space when your laying down. I am really excited for the new Limelight as I fell in love with my older one which did not have 2 doors or as much interior room as this one.

      If you have any more questions or want to see more pictures of this tent set up feel free to send me an email or call my direct line! I am also willing to get into the nitty gritty details of any other tent we have on the site, just let me know which tents you would like to compare.

      Does this tent have a gear loft and/or storage pockets inside?
