    Details

    Spacious shelter that won't weigh you down.

    You love the ultralight, compact design of backpacking tents, but the claustrophobic interior? Not so much. Well, Marmot has the solution for you in the form of the Limelight 4 Tent. It offers 50% more space than standard backpacking tents to ensure you and your partners have plenty of space to sleep, stretch, and stash your stuff.

    Zone construction creates vertical walls that increase interior space without adding bulk, so you don't feel too cramped when you're playing cards as you wait out a storm. When muddy conditions dirty up all your gear, two vestibules provide plenty of extra storage space. It's also easy to set up, so you don't get stressed out when you arrive at camp on the cusp of sundown. And when you really want to keep weight to a bare minimum for light and fast adventures, just bring the fly, footprint, and poles to create an ultralight shelter.

    • Offers more space than the average backpacking tent
    • Waterproof fly and floor keep wet weather at bay
    • No-see-um mesh maintains airflow while keeping bugs out
    • Zone construction creates vertical walls for increased space
    • Large front door allows easy in and out
    • Color-coded clips and poles for quick set up
    • Lamp Shade pocket secures headlamp for ambient lighting
    • Strategic clip placement provides larger interior volume
    • Item #MAR014A

    Perfect tent!

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

    I purchased this tent to camp in Montauk, NY. Its small and light enough to travel with. It took less than five minutes for myself and a friend to put up and take down. Three adults with sleeping pads slept comfortably in this tent. Wonderful tent!

    Great tent

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently got to use this tent on a trip around California. It slept me, my wife, and teenage daughter with plenty of space. I feel it would sleep 4 better than most 4 person tents and any 3 people should have ample space. It's well ventilated and the amount of mesh provides great viewing when the fly is unnecessary. My only concern is that the 2 main tent poles are connected by a plastic hanging guide in the middle that I worry may break. The main poles being joined make for a somewhat awkward setup due to their size but setup is still super easy. This tent is pretty big/heavy for backpacking but if you're thinking of using it for that purpose you likely have people to distribute weight across. All in all this is a great tent and a purchase I'd make again.

    Great tent

    Held up well to a 12-hr pouring rain

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

    We just used this on a 3-day camping trip in Vermont and it held up beautifully. The first night, we were caught in a 12-hour downpour. There were times we woke up to so much water coming down that it sounded like someone was dumping buckets on the tent. Even with all the splatter and water, we stayed dry. There were a couple of damp spots on the floor of the tent, but certainly no wet spots. With the ability to remove the rainfly very easily, we were able to air everything out easily once the rain quit. The tent does have tabs on the sides to pull the walls out. We did this after the first night using the extra stakes and some extra rope we had. The tent became even more waterproof. No moisture at all when we got more rain later in the weekend. The size of the tent was also perfect for us. We had two sleeping pads, a large dog bed for our golden retriever, and our large Patagonia duffel in there with plenty of room to spare. We did get a waterproof fleece blanket to protect the floor of the tent from our dog's nails. Plenty of pockets for belongings, awesome headlamp pouches to project light throughout the tent, and a great hook to hang a little lamp from overhead. The vestibules were extremely useful in the rain. We could keep all shoes outside of the tent and keep them dry. Just be sure to check for spiders before putting your feet in. It's also possible to crouch and close the vestibule before opening the tent door to keep the water out. The tent took about 10-15 minutes to put up. Couldn't ask for anything better.

    Certainly waterproof

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

    We put this tent to the test during a very rainy weekend in the Smokies. It rained all weekend, but we stayed nice and dry.
    The extra poles on the tent really do keep the end walls more vertical and give you a lot more usable floor space. The vestibules aren't huge, but they have enough space to leave your shoes out to dry.
    The tent is easy to put up, but I don't like the little plastic piece at the top of the tent that holds the larger poles together. We broke this piece the first time we put the tent up. Marmot sent us a replacement, but it was the wrong size. I've put up many a tent, and this thing just makes it more complicated.
    The doors have four zipper pulls each, which I think is a bit excessive, but we're not using this as a backpacking tent. The vestibule doors have two zipper pulls, which worked really well for exiting and entering the tent in the rain, as you don't have to open the vestibule doors all the way to enter the vestibule. You can open the top, step in and close it back up over you very quickly and the tent stays taught.
    When we finished our camping trip, I was able to take the tent down in the rain, while remaining under the rain fly. It worked surprisingly well and kept me drier than taking it down in the rain. You'll still get wet taking down the fly, but it's still an improvement.
