Tracy T.wrote a review of Marmot Astral Tent: 3-Person 3-Season on September 29, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have used the tent only once, and it has proved to be quick and easy to set up in the rain. With the ability to set up the rain fly first, the completely mesh tent stayed dry : ) Not the smallest for backpacking, but it is a 3 person tent (or 2 with canines is my preference!) and failry lightweight for the space you get inside.
Would be nice to have a bathtub style bottom...seems might begin to leak at some point, but are rain proof for now.
The vestibule has a vent, so cooking is possible when it is rainy.
Overall, thumbs up
