    Halfway between a bivy and a tent, the Marmot Starlight 1 Tent is an ultralight, ultra-simple above-ground burrow for solo backpacking and long-distance trail missions. With a body that's part mesh and part rugged PU- and silicone-coated nylon, it keeps the water at bay and lets you look at the stars as you fall asleep if skies are clear. If they aren't, you can stick on the partial fly and vestibule to keep both your head and your gear dry, and make like a badger for a good night's sleep.

    With two DAC Featherlite aluminum poles, taped seams, and 16 square feet of sleeping space, the whole package weighs in at just over two pounds, so you won't even notice it in your pack, and comes complete with internal pockets, color-coded clips, and reflective guy-out points that you'd expect to find in a larger, more expensive tent. Even the zipper pulls are made of non-jingling nylon, so a breeze won't make you feel like you're sleeping in the middle of a wind chime orchestra.

    Perfect for stealth camping

      This bevy/tent is a great choice when stealth is the name of the game. Packs small and sets up fast and small. Perfect for urban bike camping. Ok so here's the thing, unless you use the tent steaks and it's open to some air, your going to get condensation. Worth the money

      Great design, terrible condensation

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After a lot of back and forth of what 'bivy' to buy for lightweight backpacking and motorcycle camping, I went with the Starlight 1P because I liked the sound of all that ventilation.

      The color coded poles, the lightweight materials, the vestibule, removable fly, props on the foot vents... It's so well thought out and the construction and material quality is great. However in 4 outings and 2 different climates, this thing condensates a lot.

      First time out, I was in upper Washington in late September. No rain, sunny and warm during the days, cold, clear nights. I had all the vents open and fly removed, I wanted to see the stars. Firstly, it's too small to properly fit my Nemo sleeping pap and Marmot Plasma 15 in without basically fitting like a sock and touching on all sides. I'm 6'2", 180lbs and it's just too small. I don't get claustrophobic, but this thing is snug to get in and out of.

      I woke up in the morning with a very soggy sleeping bag exterior and a swampy atmosphere inside the the 'tent', the inside walls covered in dew. The second night I slept on the ground outside the tent and in the morning the Starlight was once again dripping wet.

      The next outing, I was in Southern Victoria, Australia at the beginning of summer (December). Again warm days, cold clear nights. Same thing. Condensation.

      Enough was enough, sold it. Bought an OR Advanced Bivy. No condensation, larger footprint. Not as well designed in terms of features and 'thought out', but a much better shelter I think.

      So in short, the Marmot Starlight 1P is too small for larger sleeping pads and taller people (over 6 foot) and isn't breathable enough to prevent condensation in the summery climates I've used it in. Which is a shame because I love the design features of it.

      Unanswered Question

      For those who thought its to small.. would about for a 5ft 3 105 lb person. I'm considering for a backpacking trip in Chile and need something pretty light given what I can carry.

      Debating getting this or the Outdoor...

      Debating getting this or the Outdoor Research helium bivy. Has anyone seen either one? Any advice on which one to choose?

      I can only speak as the owner of a "home alone bivy" I love it but do get condensation in the feet. This is the next-gen model and I've contacted Marmot today to see if this bivy has corrected this. I hope it has, because I will purchase one. If not, I'm going with mountain hardwear supermega.

      Best Answer

      Just got these two emails from Marmot... My gut says it's going to be very good then.

      Hi Peter,

      The Starlight is a tent style design so while the tent and fly are one piece, the ventilation is greatly improved around the occupant. ?This will greatly reduce the amount of condensation that develops inside under most circumstances. ?If the front fly/vestibule is left open there should be little to no condensation inside.

      Thanks for the question and let us know if we can help with anything else,

      Hey Peter,

      Yes, I just went down to design to check this out.� There is a pull out strut at the foot of the tent on the far side of all the pictures you will see.
