    Details

    When you need more room, pitch the Marmot Halo Tent.

    The Marmot Halo Tent's extra-large interior easily holds all six members of your family during a weekend trip, and its four-pole design withstands a stormy day in a remote base camp. Marmot used a double-door, double-vestibule design to allow easy entry as well as provide tons of out-of-the-rain storage space for boots and packs. The 81in interior height allows a six-foot person to easily stand up straight in the middle. Needless to say, there will be plenty of room for card games when you're stuck in the Halo Tent during a three-day storm.

    Extremely Awesome

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

    I go to renfests, so basically car camping, and a lot of it. It's very roomy, tall enough that a 6' person can stand and stretch their arms comfortably. The venting, even with the rainfly is great in Texas heat. The take-down is easy for one person, and I was able to get it down in about 8 minutes.

    Great tent

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

    I have only set this up once so far in the yard to learn how to do it and so far my family is in love with this tent. It was super easy to setup by myself with the exception of the rain cover. An extra set of hands helps get it over the top. Tent is super easy set up and very roomy inside. We car tent so we went with the 6 for 4 people and am very happy that we did as the extra room is very nice with 2 kids.Looking forward to taking it to the mountains soon!

    Roomy, Warm, and High Quality Tent

      After a recent camping trip with the family in our 20yr old tent, a 3 day rain storm event flooded the tent. It was time to get a new tent. After many hours of research, we settled on the Marmot Halo 6. Its roomy, plenty of storage, dry and best of all, easy to set up. While my wife is entertaining our kids, I can have this tent up in minutes. It's home away from home for 2 adults, 2 toddlers and a chocolate lab (we all sleep on luxury beds, dog included!) The design is roomy and well ventilated. We stay warm and comfy in the Canadian Rockies. The added advantage is that its easy to pack into walk-in campgrounds. We are avid backcountry hikers but with 2 youngsters in tow, sometimes its easier to just park & camp. But this tent gives us the ability to at least do walk-in camping, allowing us to get away from the noise of cars zooming in & out of campgrounds. Its relatively light and compact so we can worry about our other cargo (wandering toddlers!) Buy this tent if you want a luxury cave thats warm, roomy easy to set up and high quality! Best purchase we've made! Our dog even loves to hang out in it during the day when he needs a break from us!

      Easy Set up, Solid Tent!

        Awesome tent! Plenty of room to stand up and spread out! Easy to set up and take down. Even with the size, it is still lightweight! highly recommend!

        I am looking for a larger car camping tent and this one looks like a solid choice. But I would hardly call it light weight. If light weight is what you are after, at the cost of height and space check out this one: http://www.bigagnes.com/Copper-Spur-HV-UL4. It is 5lbs 10 oz. vs and comfortably sleeps 4.

        EPIC, Don't worry about bending poles

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        THIS TENT IS AWESOME...I read many reviews before purchasing and was a little concerned about the "bent pole/design flaw" reviews...This tent comes out of the box with poles that have a very slight bend to them, to facilitate there installation in the tent set up. No poles should be under extreme stress. This tent sets up very easily, and no poles should be even close to getting bent. Again the poles come out of the box with a very slight bend/camber to them...Ok I think you get it...

        Tent is perfect for family car camping...We are able to fit a queen sized blow up and a pak-n-play with plenty of room to spare..I mean plenty. I am over 6' tall and can stand up easily in this tent. Very pleased with the purchase!

        Solid tent, plenty of room

          First off, I would recommend going over any of the seams with a zipper right when you receive the tent. One of the side vent panels in mine had a seam that had been folded over and the stitching was only holding the mesh vent panel to the tent body. I didn't see this within Backcountry's return period so I had to go through Marmot's warranty program. Good news is that it was easy to set up, they paid shipping both ways, and their warranty site shows you the work they are doing. I had it back in my hands less than three weeks after I dropped it off at FedEx. The initial setup was slow via email (a few days in between) but I chose that method so I could include pictures from the get go.



          As for the tent, I've had no problems at all. This is being used as a comfy tent and won't see much abuse. Plenty of room for a queen size air mattress (which fits through the door inflated), moto gear bags, and everything the dog wants to bring along. The tent poles don't seem flimsy at all but I can see them bending if they are handled from the very end (think what happens when you extend a tape measure too far). This thing is almost 7ft tall in the center and has a 10x10ft footprint, the poles are extremely long. I use the 'halo' pole to tie off a clothesline to and there was no concern for stability.



          Picture below is the Halo 6 (no rain fly) next to my old Marmot Titan 3P (with rain fly). This thing is massive!

          Solid tent, plenty of room

          At least it has a great warranty

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

          I really hope I can update this review later on and add more stars but as of right now, I have a really sour taste in my mouth which is such a bummer!!

          We have two big dogs (husky and wirehaired pointer) and a toddler along with my husband and I, so we purchased this tent so we would have plenty of room to sleep comfortably, and fit a pack n' play if needed. It is excellent for that! Tons of room, and great head room!

          Here is the bummer part... I have literally only set up this tent twice, and had to cut our camping trip short...

          The first time I set it up, I was in our backyard just to see how big it was and how to set it up and get familiar with it.. and a pole bent! It made the tent lean to one side, so that was a total bummer and showed me how not durable the poles are if you only set it up once and that happens.

          I figured it would still be okay, so we took it up camping the following weekend, and set it up there, and one more of the smaller poles (halo part) bent as well!! AND we go two rips in the tent too. One of the clips to attach the poles to the tent just ripped right off... total bummer! We just packed up and left we were so bugged by it.

          So I hit up Marmot about this, and they hooked it up, I sent back the tent to them, and they repaired it in about two-three weeks time for me. I just got it back the other day, and we are planning to take it out camping this weekend. So I really hope I can provide an update with better stars and a more raving review about this tent. I SO wanted to love it, but right now I am torn, just like my tent.





          *** Follow Up- added a star!***



          Like the title of this review, Marmot has one of the best warranty departments I have ever had to work with! I really really love their company for that reason! It was super easy to submit a warranty issue and send the product to them, the repaired it in a couple weeks, and sent it back to me all fixed up!

          I am very impressed with the quality of their repairs, it is as if the rips didn't happen, and the tent is like new again which is awesome!

          We took out the tent on a family camping trip, and it was a lot of fun! The tent is super spacious and fits us all really well with some room to spare. I love that I can stand up in the tent and walk around comfortably!



          It was pretty windy when we went camping once, and it doesn't hold up well in wind, which I kind of expected since it is a taller tent, and will just grab that wind easily. But other than that, we really have enjoyed this tent now that it is repaired!



          Thank you Marmot!! <3

          At least it has a great warranty

          Great Product - Even Better Service!

            Backcountry.com rules. I was setting up my new tent for the first time and accidentally bent one of the poles and created a slight tear in the material at the same time. I was distraught as it was the initial erection. I knew I had done something wrong setting it up, and now the tent was messed up. I contacted backcountry.com this morning, and via chat was able to set up a replacement at no charge within 5 minutes. Love Backcountry!

            AMAZING tent!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            This was my first 'serious' tent purchase, all previous tents being small and cheap. I was hesitant to spend the money, but after researching many 6-person tents, my husband and I decided on the Halo 6 for several reasons. First was quality, and boy has this tent delivered. The full rain fly has been put to the test and I'm happy to report that we stayed completely dry. The poles are extremely sturdy and the tent and fly material is rugged. This tent is so easy to set-up, I've done it by myself several times. Second, we needed a tent with some height as my husband is 6'. He can comfortably stand in the tent with a lamp hanging in the middle with plenty of room to spare. Finally, we needed floor space. It's just the 2 of us, but we have 2 full size dogs. A queen air mattress and the dogs bedding all fits with room to spare for our gear. 2 fairly good sized vestibules helps out a lot as well.

            The poles that hold the rain fly off the tent do a good job at letting fresh air circulate in. I hope to never have to use the lifetime manufacturers warranty, however it's nice knowing it's there if needed. This is by far the best tent we've owned! I've already recommended it to several friends.

            AMAZING tent!

            Great option for families car camping

              First off, this tent is big in the stuff sack, so definitely not for backpacking. But for a group of 3-4 car camping, it's a great option. I'm 6'3" and can stand in the middle with room to spare. Have only used it one night so far, but I was able to set it up with my 10 year old and it maybe took 10 minutes. Love all the vents you can open and they double as pockets. Speaking of pockets, a ton of them at both sides. Poles are good quality, as are the stakes. Using wider type air mattresses, the floor space gets a bit tight for four people. Seems like it would be very good in the rain with the high peak angle.

              Awesome for Glamping...

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              This tent isn't my normal style, which is lightweight backpacking, but I needed a new car-camping tent to use as a base station in a campground when I was on a work detail most of the summer back in 2013. It's gigantic! Almost embarrassingly so, but it was great for long periods away from home since I could comfortably fit all my gear plus a table and chair and have a refuge to hang out in during inclement weather. And while the description says a 6' person can stand in it, that's an understatement, because my 6'5" husband can stand in it with plenty of headroom. We've been using it both as a base station for work trips to some property we own in Northwestern Montana, and also as a backyard 'guest room' for overflow sleeping space in the summer. It's so large and comfy that guests actually enjoy it. It's also sturdy in a storm, and very stable even in high winds. Have stayed it in a couple of downpours with wind-driven rain and stayed perfectly dry. My only complaint is the webbing on two of the corners where the stakes poke through the grommet is starting to show some wear around the edges of the grommet. I think the grommet is a long way from pulling out of the webbing, but even if it does, I'm not really worried as Marmot is typically great about standing behind their products. Also, a person buying it should be aware that this tent is 10'x10' with two 4' vestibules, and it may not handily fit in some regular tent sites in National and State park campgrounds.

              Awesome for Glamping...

              A great beast of a family tent

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

              This thing is a beast - in a great way.
              My family got it last year and used for 3 nights in Mendocino area for our first time family car camping. Little ones then were under a year and just shy of 3 years plus mom and dad. With our gear, bags, pack-n-play all inside, we have tons of room to play around in, inside games, stand up, and stow items away. Yes, it is huge. And yes, it takes lots of space in a campsite pad. But it is perfect for car camping for a family. Very happy with the purchase. Pricy, but given that I'm taking my little ones into the outdoors, I want it to be cozy, fun and safe. Definitely recommend the tent.

              It just needs a wet bar

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

              Easy to set up! Plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 furry kids. All our gear was stowable with room to spare. 6 people can fit when in a crunch but 4-5 would be ideal!

              Everything we hoped for!

                After much research I finally went with my gut and chose this tent for my family of 5. With 3 children ranging from 8 mo to almost 5 yrs we still had plenty of room in this. We love the color and design. We didn't have any issues with poles bending during setup as others have said. I'll definitely be looking for more marmot products in the future.

                Everything we hoped for!

                Best Car Camping Tent

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

                This tent is awesome! Hands down my favorite. Took it out first day I had it and its super easy to put up. really stable and you can tell its something durable. Really impressed so far and stoked to use it again. This thing is huge and plenty of room to hang out in if the weather turns south. Also the vestibules are really spacious. We were able to get a large dog crate in the vestibule and there was still a little room to open the door to let them out. If your looking for tent this size look no more. Hands down its the best tent and will not disappoint.

                My first "serious" camping tent (Family)

                  I haven't yet camped in this, but was excited to set it up for a test run in the backyard. Because I was having trouble visualizing the reality of the floorspace inside the tent, I threw some real-life family camping props into the tent and took some photos. Included were a queen-size sleeping bag, two kiddie-size bags (54"x 22") and the mat from the Pack 'n' Play crib. In the vestibule, I put two 30 gallon totes, and about three 16 gallon totes. (I'm thinking I will actually keep our clothes out here in the totes, as it seems many duffles in the tent will make for some crowded conditions -- let me know if you've tried this). Hope this helps put size in perspective. I may increase my rating once I've actually tried it in the "wilds" of the WI park system.

                  My first "serious" camping tent (Family)

                  How does the Halo 6P compare to the Limestone 6P. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the two in comparison?

                  The main difference between the two is the size and weight, The halo has a larger interior space and vestibule. Its also heavier and has a larger pack size.



                  The advantage of the limestone is that its smaller and cheaper, plus it is lighter then the halo.



                  The Halo would be better for car camping with more people/stuff. The limestone would be a better hiking tent because of the size and weight.



                  The Halo is also orange, so when the natural light comes through the tent the interior will light up orange, where as the limestone will have a more natural light if you get the white walled version.

                  Is a custom fit floor-liner available for the Halo 6?

                  So this tent is 10' by 10' correct? How...

                  So this tent is 10' by 10' correct? How much usable room is in this tent? I have a Double or Queen sized air mattress, will there be room for extras inside? We plan on having a few kids in the near future and don't want to have to replace the tent right away. Just got it and with it being winter can't put it up to check yet.

                  with any tent, your not going to get the full 10by10, the walls being slanted in cuts of bit of use able space, with a twin and a queen i think you will completely fill the floor of your tent and leave yourself with little to no room for gear etc. a much easier way to go would be you and your wife take the air matress and the kids can sleep on ground pads, which will save alot of room

                  like the specs say, you will have approx 100+/- Sq.Ft. of "usable space". with this tent you also have the additional storage area in the vestibule area. i have spent time in one however i own mountain hardware and TNF tents. with this tent, it is cool how the poles actually push outward, giving even a bit more room. one thing i would have wanted would be more gear loops inside. hope this helps.

                  I just received this tent and set it up outside (haven't actually slept in it yet). By my measurements, the interior dimensions seem closer to 9'6" x 9'6". It's 10' x10' if you measure from grommet to grommet on the corner straps. Here's a queen-size sleeping bag, 2 kid sacks, and a pack n play mat. Leaves a little room to walk and maybe some for a dog or your actual luggage. The vestibules are pretty large though.

                  Best Answer

                  2 vestibules. The center of the tent is 6'5" but the halo design keeps the walls mostly vertical. Dude in this video doesn't state how tall he is, but he is jumping around inside this tent and gives a pretty thorough review:

                  I heard the 100sq ft floor is actually smaller. That marmot might have measured the floor material instead of the acutal area. I need to make the wife happy and she will not be happy unless I can get a queen size air mattress and a pack and play in this tent. Now Her current tent is 1900 sq ft but broke last trip but a bunch of space is not used cause of the way the ends of that tent tapered down to the small side doors. If this tent will not work what are some other tents I should look at.

                  The width of the Halo 6 is 10 feet and the length is 10 feet so that translates to 100 sq feet. Marmot worked hard to keep the sidewalls as vertical as possible to give it maximum usable interior space.

                  Never heard of manufacturer, what kind of reputation does Marmot have?

                  Best Answer

                  I'm not sure if I can get all of these, but I'll give it a shot.

                  - It does not come with a footprint, but there is one for it on this site, item #MAR1110. Just put that in the search bar and hit enter.

                  - It will do an excellent job in rain, wind (up to probably 35-40 if you guy it out), and condensation.

                  - The zippers are very durable and will last a long time, but the fastest killers of zipper are sand (usually not a problem) and stepping on them. Make it very very clear that no one can step on the zippers, teeth or sliders, ever.

                  - Marmot's warranty is quite good, and can be seen here: http://www.marmot.com/node/343

                  - It comes in one bag, a cylinder 25 inches long and 14 across and 19 pounds, so you can judged for yourself whether that's easy to carry.

                  - The sleeping pattern for big square tents like this is usually two people across at the head and feet, and four people side by side in the middle.

                  - I'm quite surprised that you haven't heard of Marmot, they have a fantastic reputation for jackets, tents, and other soft goods.

                  Besides, if anything goes wrong with the tent, whether Marmot covers it or not, you can always return it to Backcountry for a full refund. Any time, any condition. That's why Backcountry has 73,000 registered customers.

                  Is this tent available to buy right now? I have been told Marmot is only making 100 and if I am lucky I can get one but not until January 09. Is this true?
