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

I've car camped with my two children (10 and 12) numerous times - we use a Kelty Trail Ridge 6p for that and love all the extra space. Purchased the Marmot Limelight 3p for their first backpacking trip to the CA coast. This is definitely on the heavier side for backpacking but I wanted something comfortable and since we were able to divide between all of us it worked well. Absolutely LOVE the vertical side walls, head room, and the need for less guy lines due to the design. If using for 3 , would recommend narrower sleeping pads as ours overlapped. We had three different ones (2 older and 1 newer thermarest) . The orange color gives off a homey glow. It rained all night into the next morning and we were perfectly dry inside except one spot on the ground where the footprint had folded over (tent in direct contact with the ground). We went in and out of the tent while it was raining and didn't have the issue with rain pouring in. I had a NF tent that poured rain right in and couldn't wait to sell that thing!

Fit: Runs large

I purchased this to replace a Mountain Hardwear ski jacket that I've had for several years. It is very warm, super high quality (I like the protected/sealed zippers) and flattering, especially from the side and back. The Magentic color is very nice - like a dark Raspberry. I am 5'4" 135 lbs and hippy - ordered a Medium. I actually think it runs a little large. I have plenty of room to layer underneath and still have it not feel tight at all anywhere. The only thing I dislike is the glove thingys in the sleeves. The sleeves are extra long so the gloves do not stay on my hands, plus the fabric is scratchy and uncomfortable. Fleece would have been much better.
