Halo Tent: 4-Person 3-Season

With a unique pole design and large doors, Marmot's Halo 4-Person 3-Season Tent has plenty of usable living space for the whole family. This spacious tent includes several wall pockets to keep gear organized throughout the camping trip, and the double vestibules provide shelter for muddy hiking boots or your duffel bag full of gear that doesn't fit inside. Although it's designed for weekend camping or family camping, the Halo has the ingredients of a more rugged mountain shelter—DAC press-fit poles, floor-level vents, and a fully sealed rain fly—to withstand the worst weather you encounter during your next family camping trip.

  • Reliable mountain shelter for camping with the family
  • Large front door for easy entry throughout the night
  • Large front vestibule for storage and coverage
  • Interior storage compartments for organization
  • Poles attach with clip and sleeve combo for security
  • Colored-coded clips and poles for easy pitching
  • Item #MAR01AY

Not waterproof

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

This tent is a fail during rain. The water pools on top of the rain fly, even with super meticulous staking and tying by experienced tent campers. The seams have to be leaking because no other explanation. It’s almost like the rain fly is too small for the tent and does not line up properly with poles, or just poor quality overall. Otherwise, the tent in dry weather is fine.


Hello, curious because I am considering this specific tent. Did the rainwater leak through the rainfly and the door and vertical part of the floor? Are there velcro loops on the rainfly to attach to the halo poles? I know there are velcro loops on the main poles. Thank you

Cozy and Built Strong!

I've used it several times

This tent was amazing! We camped in Teton Valley on a windy weekend and it was super stable and did not budge with the 30mph winds. The tent itself was really spacey and cozy for just two people. You can easily fit more people but we loved the extra space. It is a car camping tent for sure it packs well and is fairly light but it's not backpacking light. The dome shape gives so much headroom in there as opposed to other style tents I have owned in the past. I(ts a keeper for sure!

Love this tent. It's as easy to put together a smaller 2-3 person tents, but twice the size. Breaks down easy and packs away decently small. My go to car camping tent!

Roomy quality tent.

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

First tent i’ve had to buy in a long time and could not be more pleased after our first camp. Tent is huge, plenty of space for a family to sleep comfortably. It is quick and easy to put up with two people. Materials are high quality. Rain fly holds up well and has vents that help circulation. Zippers all work smoothly with no problems. Really don’t have anything negative to say thus far. Probably would be best for car camping. Not overly heavy and packs up pretty nice, but probably a little to much to backpack with. Was able to purchase during the July 4th sale and got a great deal. Looking forward to seeing how it holds up over the years.

I've used it several times

Super easy set, it fits 2 adults (5'7 & 5'8) perfectly, with 2 boys a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old. there was enough room to fit 2 more adults I would say comfortably, or 1 adult and 2 kids. Very Spacious, we did end up having to use the tarp, due to the rain, although there were plenty of vents, it sure did get super warm at some points of the night. It did keep the warmth in, and it did keep the wind and rain out. Not a drop of water came in, and when big gusts of wind blew by the tent held up surprisingly nice. I would only say the con to the tent was that it kept the warmth in too much ha. I also did enjoy the little mud room when you have the tarp over the mesh tent. great place to put chairs or shoes or extra packs out there and still have a cover over it. Definitely excited for more adventured with this tent :)

Great tent!

I've used it several times

Ok I've had my Halo 4-P for about three years now, and have camped in it probably a couple dozen times, in various conditions. Most of my camping is car-camping with my young sons. In short, it's a great tent. I've loved it. It has held up very well for me in cold weather, hot weather, in rain and hail, and in wind. The space created by the "halo" poles is nice. the construction is sturdy and putting it together is intuitive. I love the vents that you can unzip on the sides and pull air through the tent during hot days. I also love the twin vestibules. No problems with seams or zippers or with staying dry when it rains. My one problem with it was that on one camping trip, my structural poles got wet and some of the coloring on them rubbed off. This did not affect the functionality of the tent; it's really more of a cosmetic concern than anything. It's not worth enough consideration for me to rate this tent lower than 5 stars. I would recommend this tent to my friends, and I would buy it again.

Holds water Marmot Cust Serv HORRIBLE

I've put it through the wringer

I wanted to love this tent. I took it out for 3 days for a trial run in Florida prior to my 2 week Canadian Rockies trip. The tent held water on top of the "Halo" pole even after breaking down and setting it up 3 separate times. I tied the guy lines and staked it out so tight it was tight enough to break the fabric, came back after a downpour and again found standing water on top of the Halo poles and inside the tent. To be fair I reached out to Marmot customer service. I sent the videos and pictures. One representative sent me 2 videos of the tent sent up, with both videos showing two different ways to orient the set up! Each even put the rain fly on different! Each called the "front" door different. Neither even addressed the inside velcro tabs around the rain fly. Completely worthless. I then asked for a "supervisor" to call me. A person named "Kaci" returned my call. I advised her that the basic instructions included inside the tent bag were not thorough and did not address the rainfly or orientation. She said "oh well, there's nothing anyone is going to do about that now". When I discussed the water issue on top of the Halo poles she said "it is what it is", send it into warranty. I was absolutely shocked. I had no idea Marmot customer service was this terrible. They could care less about their products or customers. I will never buy another Marmot product again. This girl Kaci should be fired.

I experienced the exact same with the rain fly. Did not even try to deal with Marmot customer service, but we did leave a bad review on the website. STAY AWAY from the tent if you will be in heavy rain.

A Life of Luxury

I've used it several times

Oh boy. Before using this tent this past weekend, I was coming from 2 person backpacking tents, single wall tarp shelters, etc. Let me just say, this guy is HUGE!! Four people would fit comfortably, with all of their stuff. Setup: When I first saw the old school "poles in the sleeve" design, I have to admit I was skeptical. Cue memories of camping with my family, struggling to get the poles through the sleeve. Pole falling apart, poking holes in the tent body, etc. I have to say Marmot nailed it with this aspect. The poles are magnetized so there is no popping out or bumbling, and the sleeve material is reinforced and coated with a slick (pvc coating maybe" coat that helps the poles slide right through. Set up took 3 minutes tops with 2 people. Tent: SO MUCH ROOM! Cant say it enough. Plenty of room for me and my girlfriend to sleep on our luxury Thermarest car camp pads, and for our dog to have her own pop up crate / bed, plus all of our crap. I am 6'5, and there was enough height in the middle for me to stand up hunched over (good enough to put pants on). The other great part is while this tent is by no means a backpacking tent, it only weighs 12lbs, and doesn't take up too much space in the car. No, this isn't as big of a concern with car camping. However, my car tends to get filled up with bike stuff, climbing stuff, etc, and so I want the essential "stuff" to take up as little room as possible, while still being comfy. Durability: Can't speak to this as I only had the one weekend out so far. However all the materials seem solid and burly, and I have had the marmot firefly 2p (discontinued) for going on 7 years now with only one rip in the fly that was 100% my fault. Long story short is that I would 10 / 10 recommend for your car camping adventures.
