FOTIS wrote a review of Marmot Earlylight Tent with Footprint and Gear Loft: 2-Person 3-Season on April 17, 2011
I am a fan of Marmot. I have bought many products and still happy with the quality and durability..but this one.
i have used it for 6-7 times and the tent did not meet the quality i thought would have. These is my feedback:
The zippers and the main material went out of shape. I have to use the zipper with my both hands to open and close the tent.
Although I had anchored the tent correctly, during a windy night on the beach, dust and sand went through and as a result we couldnt stay in the tent for a long time as we were unable to breath due to the dust. I believe the rain fly is too short
I thought that the footprint would be unnecessary, since I set the tent over sand, but as a result there is a hole on the ground sheet.
A few days ago, during a 3 hours rain at night, although rain didnt come inside, you could feel the moisture in your hands from inside
