    Marmot gives families expedition-level performance with the Halo Tent.

    Marmot designed a unique pole design to steepen the Halo 4-Person Tent's walls and increase usable living space for you and the rest of your family. This spacious tent includes several wall pockets to keep things organized, and the double vestibules provide shelter for anything that doesn't fit inside. Though Marmot designed this tent for family camping, they also included tough DAC press-fit poles, floor-level vents, and other features that you usually only see on expedition shelters.

    Great tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The best word to describe this tent is spacious. It feels way bigger than a 4 person tent and has plenty of storage pockets. Very easy to set up and take down, even for one person. It has great airflow and I love the mesh top for viewing the stars at night. I prefer to stuff my tents back in the bag and couldn't fit the poles, but that's the only downside I have noticed so far.

    This thing is amazing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Living in Washington State it was important that I got a tent that held up well in rain and wind, while I haven't really had any encounters with camping in the wind here yet, I have definitely dealt with the rain. My last trip it rained pretty much non stop for a day and a half, I was worried about waking up to everything being wet, but it was bone dry, even with the big puddle that formed right outside the door. I do use the footprint, I'm not sure how much that matters, but I would definitely recommend this thing to anyone! I usually camp alone, and set up/tear down is a piece of cake. Hopefully, this lasts a few years, and I will stick with the Marmot brand going forward.

    Awesome Family Tent

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

    Bought this tent for family camping and having easily set it up in the yard it seems like it will be perfect for us. Very impressed with the material and craftsmanship on it. My kids are looking forward to taking it out!

    Family fun Tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My Customer Elizabeth and her husband took this little guy out for his first camping trip. It rained on them the whole time but with The Halo's heavy duty rain fly and plenty of head room they stayed dry without getting stir-crazy. Great tent that can handle the elements. True four person.

    Family fun Tent

    Love this tent!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My old REI 4P tent got loaned out and lost....Finally replaced that beloved shelter in preparation for 10 days of car camping around Colorado in mid-July. I'm in love with this tent.

    Set up both 6P and 4P Halo in my living room first to decide--thought with future festivals and trips *with* the 2 dogs we might need the bigger one. Although the standing room in the 6P would be great during a festival, definitely overkill for my kind of camping. So we went with the 4P.

    Set up on the Halo is ridiculously easy. We kept having a habit of arriving at our destination late, and rushing against darkness to set up. Never a struggle with this tent. Super straightforward design. Even my inexperienced partner got the hang of it right away.

    I also love the color. Bright and cheery place to be.

    Summer in Colorado at altitude means both cold and hot--the tent wasn't bad for both. Good ventilation. Although, when it got hot, we just got out. Good holding in warmth.

    Nice size. It'll be fine when we have both medium-sized dogs. At that point we'll probably move gear to vestibule.

    Can't say anything about wind or water yet, I'm afraid; we had neither.

    Love this tent!

    Easy to put up!

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

    My family of four (two adults, two children - 9 and 7) had a great night in our tent and we're looking forward to many more. We purchased this tent because of the comments regarding easy assembly! The tent was incredibly easy to put up (practiced once in our backyard before we took it camping). It was fine for sleeping but there was not much additional room. We could not store any gear in the tent - if we wanted the additional room we should have purchased a 6-person tent. Regardless, we all slept well - great venting (with the fly on), easy to put up and take down, great storage for headlamps and books.

    Halo 4P Tent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My family and I used this for an around the world adventure. Over eight months we slept in the tent for about six months, car camping in the US and Canadian National Parks, Cycle touring in Europe and Backpacking in New Zealand. We put the tent through hell, torrential rain night after night, blistering heat, sand storms, exceptionally strong winds. The tent is fantastic, however has a few design improvements needed. The floor could do with being more waterproof, the side pole sleeve sockets collect water/condensation that then runs into the tent. The zips don't like dusty conditions and hence the teeth become out of sync both inner and outer zips, (think this may be because of the rounded shape of the entrance). We also used a foot print that proved no good when you wake up to your camp ground squelching, large damp areas appear inside the floor area. Well L would buy this tent again having said all this, no tent could stand up to what we put it through. What a fantastic memory this tent gave us.
    Kind regards

    A fantastic tent!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My Scout Group had a few of these. Having seen them in use I just had to have one for myself. This tent is spacious, easy to set up, and extremely liveable. The steep side walls and excellent ventilation allow it to easily for four people and store their gear in the vestibules. Pockets help keep personal gear sorted. For two people on stretchers it's pure luxury! One person can quickly and easily set it up alone.
    It's not quite high enough for an adult to stand up in, but the steep walls mean that if you're stuck inside in the rain four people can easily sit and play cards.
    Only one criticism: the supplied guy lines are not reflective.

    Love Love Love this tent

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

    purchased this tent to replace an old coleman tent we have used for many years. This was our first dabbling with high quality tents. it took a lot of research to decide on the proper tent for our needs, but at the end of the day we choose the halo 4. Our first camping trip with this tent was on the Olympic coast in WA, high humidity and high winds. The forecast called for 70%+ humidity for the two days we were there. Let me start off by saying by 9pm there was a layer of dew on my vehicle and the exterior of the tent...that is how moist it was outside. For the two days we had the tent up in these conditions it had ZERO condensation on the inside. We even only had the rain fly vents open and left the lower vents closed. With two people and two dogs we didn't get any condensation! Next I would like to mention how easy this tent is to set up. it goes up easy and comes down easy, just a superior design to so many tents I have seen. In closing I cannot recommend this tent enough, it is by far my favorite camping related purchase I have made.

    Made summer great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought the Halo this past winter in anticipation for summer camping. I've never been a big fan of camping as our old tent smelled, leaked etc. Bought this and haven't looked back! This tent kept us bone dry in a thunderstorm on the northern shore of Lake Superior, comfortable in the Adirondacks, didn't budge in a wind storm on the Atlantic coast in Maine and was dry as toast back in Minnesota for a day of soaking rains. (We even set it up in the rain) Can't say enough good things and its made me love camping! Its a breeze to set up and I love waking up in it because its orange and happy! If you're thinking about it, do it. I love this tent - can't wait till next summer.

    Smaller than advertised!!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I bought this tent, but it will unfortunately be going back. It's well constructed, and easy to set up. However, it doesn't even come close to the stated floor dimensions of 96


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love love love this tent. The open air screening is spectacular - stunning night views. Fly is simple to use and can clip on in a snap. We normally sleep with the fly clipped on two corners so if it starts to rain one of us can climb out of the tent and toss it over the top and clip the last two corners. Inside has great storage/gear pockets. Tent storage bag is small but we just bought a bigger stuff sack for the tent and use the tent bag to organize other parts. Highly recommend buying the footprint. Camped in torrential rain without any issue. Doors are super easy. My husband and I car camp and it's been perfect for us...York Beach, ME or Cape Cod or Shenandoah National's all been great. Tent goes up so easily and the halo aspect is awesome. 15 nights in the tent so far this summer!

    Stuff bag is too small

      This is my second Marmot tent. This one is a bigger 4 person. I like both and they provide good value. Just one thing and I know this is a minor issue but, it wouldn't kill Marmot to make the stuff bag big enough to fit a tent. Both my Marmot tents are a total pain to get into the bag when they are rolled up. Just make the things bigger. I hate to take off a star just because of the stuff bag but, it's too small. Now I need to spend a few more dollars to get a bag that will hold the thing easily. On a 20 day river trip it needs to be taken down every day.

      Do not buy a Marmot

        This is mainly about their warranty and customer service. This is not about the Halo, but they do not have the capstone anymore and I wanted everyone to know how Marmot does not honor warranty.(Purchased the Capstone 6) I purchased a Marmot because I have had cheap tents that leaked in the rain. The 1st camping trip all was ok as it did not rain. But in October 2014 using the tent for the second time. After a night of moderate rain, we discovered the floor had leaked in several places and especially under our sleeping pads and 2 large puddles of water in one of the corners. There were 2 other Marmot tents in our group (Halo 6) no leaks. Called Marmot and all we heard was what we must have done wrong to cause the tent to leak. We return the tent and of course we had to pay shipping of $94. So now I have around $750 in the tent.

        Anyway, Marmot calls saying that we must have put the footprint upside down. And all the water in the corner was because we did not put the tent up correctly. I then told him that the floor is supposed to be waterproof, he did not deny this but just said they pressure checked the floor and it did not leak. I informed him that everyone else was just using a Walmart tarp under their tent. He said the puddles of water were caused from me not setting up the tent correctly and allowing the fly to touch the tent. He said the fly was waterproof but the tent was not. If the fly was waterproof how did water get in the tent as the water could not have penetrated the fly? Therefore, the fly would have to be defective or no water could have got to the tent. The fly was not touching the tent. Also I would like to add that the other 2 Marmot tents were not using even half of the tie downs and the fly had to touch their tents. We also sent Marmot the pictures of all the water in the tent from that morning. We even requested they replace it with their less expensive Halo 6 that others with us had and experienced no leaks, but they would not do anything.


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This has withstood the test of multiple torrential downpours. The rain fly remains to keep everyone and the tent itself, completely dry. It dries quickly, folds and packs easily and is surprisingly lightweight for its size. The windowed dome ceiling and vents keep airflow sufficiently comfortable and allows for a gorgeous view of the starry night sky when the rain fly is off. Our family of four plus our dog all sleep cozily with a bit of room to spare. Overall, we love this tent!

        A++++ Tent. Would sleep again.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Fits 4, but comfortably fits 3. Great tent though. Super quick to set up and take down, and the quality of the materials seems great. Spent 9 days in it earlier this year and can't think of anything bad to say about it. Nice big pockets inside to stash all your loose stuff.

        Love it

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought this tent for car camping w/2 adults and a large dog and it is perfect size for the 3 of us, plus a couple packs. Set up is ridiculously easy. I love the halo pole design/straight walls, it does make the interior feel much larger than other 4 person tents. The color isn't as bright as online photos lead me to believe, and it is downright cheery inside the tent, even on a rainy day. I went back and forth between this tent and the REI Base Camp. While I liked the slightly larger vestibule on the Base Camp, Marmot won because of the halo design, I had more faith in the Marmot rain fly coverage vs. the REI, and most importantly, the side vents on the Halo zip while the REI ones do not. It is a 3 season tent and I want the option of zipping them shut on chilly nights. In the Marmot's maiden voyage, we had some good downpours and it performed beautifully. I mainly camp in the humid northeastern US and have not yet had the chance to use this without the rain fly. I can't wait to camp in a more arid climate, as the mesh dome top of the tent would create spectacular star gazing opportunities.

        Great Tent

          Easy to use - heaps of space - great for car camping - have done 2 adults and 2 young kids easily - good vestibule space. Got a little extra bend in some of poles after a while. Has really stood up well to heaps of use. Better in slightly warmer weather in my opinion. Everything it is cracked up to be

          is there a gear loft specific for the Marmot Halo 4-person tent? If not, can you suggest one that would work in this tent?

          Are the rain fly edges supposed to reach the ground? I have never been able to set my Halo 4 up so that they do. And in Colorado it's never been an issue as the only rain I've seem to have encountered in this tent wasn't torrential. However this past weekend the rain was insane. Water would flow off the fly and easily find it's way into the vestibule area. And unfortunately also made it over the footprint. Had the fly been touching the ground, I feel as though the wet floor and vestibule could have been avoided.

          But I see no possible way to make the fly edges reach the ground. I've set this tent up at least 25 times and it's always off the ground. Even the youtube videos I've found are rigged the same way.

          Just curious.

          Best Answer

          Ive never been able to get my fly to touch the ground. I think if its raining that hard unfortunately things are going to get wet. I have found the water just runs under the tent from the ground and then finds its way into little nooks and crannies. Obviously the 4 season tent will give you more protection than other tents but, in a torrential down pour you have to find other ways to keep things dry. I sometimes will lay out my rain jacket in the tent and put essential "cant get wet items" on that, or try to hang it off the gear loft.

          Thanks for the quick response Bill. I agree, in rain like that there's not much you can do in a 3-season tent. I was just curious if I wasn't setting it up properly. I do use either dry bags or very water resistant duffles in the tent for keeping essential gear (clothes, etc) dry. Mostly for the use in the back of my truck, but doubles as extra protection in case the tent floor does become wet like it did this past weekend - which is the first time this tent has ever shown signs of letting weather in.

          I love this tent. By far the best truck camping tent I've owned.

          Does this tent have the same pole issues as the Halo 6? Being significantly shorter I would assume it doesn't. Just curious as I'm replacing an old SD large tent.

          Wondering how well this tent performs in cool weather (i.e. around zero degrees celsiuis). We have had a Marmot Swallow for years and love that all mesh areas can be zipped up with nylon to retain heat in cooler weather. Keeping a couple of window flaps open with the fly vents still provides good venting in cool temperatures. There is no comparable Marmot tent for 4 people though, the Halo was recommended as an alternate. I'm not sure about all that mesh - good venting yes, but lots of heat loss on close to zero nights? appreciate any insights from anyone who has used in colder weather. Thanks.

          Best Answer

          JT...your concerns are quite valid. I have a HALO 4 and when it gets really cool to cold all that mesh works against you. I saw your question posted as I was looking up HALO 4 specs to compare to other tents as I'm now looking for something more suitable for colder weather...the HALO 4...while an outstanding tent...simply is too "breezy" in cold weather.

          We camp in windy places, how well does this product hold up in the wind?

          Best Answer

          One issue this design has is high-profile walls that will fight the wind. It has a good pole-design to create solid stability, but in high winds it will at least get loud and shake. The fly design aids this substantially, particularly if you pitch it facing or tailing the wind. My experience with Marmot is that, regardless of the shaking and noise, it will not fold in normal winds.

          If you are looking for a tent that you will pitch in consistently high winds, I would recommend something with lower profile walls and better curves, but that will sacrifice interior space and comfort.

          How well will this tent fit 4 guys? We're 6'3", 6', 5'11", 5'9" - all athletically built? Will we have to sleep head to toe?

          Also - the spec's say it's not seam sealed (taped?). Anyone had issues with water finding it's way through the fly seams during extended periods of rain?

          Best Answer

          At 64 square feet the Halo 4 is pretty roomy for a 4 person tent. If you plan on sleeping 4 guys, however, you won't have much room for gear. You might consider the Halo 6 if you want to spread out. Also, the specs are incorrect, all Marmot tents, including the Halo's, have fully taped flys and floors. Hope that helps.

          Is the tent completely free standing? Or...

          Is the tent completely free standing? Or does the rain fly have to be staked in order to properly work?

          Best Answer

          The tent is free standing, but to create a vestibule the rain fly needs to be staked out at each door. It's always a good idea to stake or somehow anchor your tent to keep it from becoming a giant kite in the wind.
