    I am in south Louisiana so I needed a well vented semi compact tent for car / four wheeler camping and possible use for canoe camping on rocky beaches in Arkansas i.e. I was not weight concerned. I use hammocks most of the time. I have been running a small 2 man seira design for twenty plus years but I have to drink too much now to make a wimpy pad comfortable so I wanted something to fit a mattress. REI has a nice 6 inch air mattress with dims to match this tent footprint and with the mesh upper I was in. I have only set this up in the house but I am pleased. Slept in it twice in the den with my son and it looks like everything is in order. Quick setup. Free standing. Big vests on both sides. Daddy likes. Highly recommend.

    So far we have set the tent up twice inside the house. Real easy for a beginning camper like me!
    Can't wait to take it outside to try it!

    Ordered this tent based on a recommendation of a coworker. Our last tent ended up leaking in a storm and we just had it. Needed something that could handle water. We haven't taken this tent out yet, but based on other reviews, I have good faith. The other day we did a test run on putting the tent together, it's very easy to set up. Spacious on the inside. We picked the 3 person tent only because we like extra room to place our luggage in.

    I have not used this tent although I did set it up to check it and found it reasonably easy to put up alone. It will be roomy for 2 people and possible for three people. It does not come with a ground cloth but I will purchase a 6'x8' tarp. One should always use a tarp under a tent, both to keep it clean and to avoid punctures. Remember to tuck it so that any rain runs off and not under, and to use a trowel to dig a trench if heavy rain is expected. I found the poles and the stakes in the package, plus an emergency pole repair sleeve and some line to stake the tent in high winds. My one complaint is that there are tie-offs for the rain fly only on one side, whereas one might not want to use the vestibule in really nice weather. I plan to add an extra tie-off. There are doors on both sides of the tent, which I like. So far I am happy with the tent.

    One of the easiest tents I've ever set up and can easily be done with one person. Only used once so far, but we are very happy with the purchase. It doesn't come with a footprint; however, those can be purchased easily after-market.

    We used this tent for the first time backpacking this weekend and it was perfect. We bought it to accommodate our growing family as a two-person tent was just too small for the husband, child and myself. This tent is light-weight, easy to set up and roomy enough for a bouncing toddler. The vestibules also had plenty of space for the two dogs and gear. The one downside of the tent (and the trip) was it rained on us during the night and there was some water leakage if you touched the rain cover. We didn't get dripped on or anything like that, but if you rubbed up against it on the inside you got a little wet. Not a big deal all in all. It is definitely a good find for the price!

    Most folks don't want to spend money for tents, but I invested in my 3-person, 3-Season and I love it. It sets up pretty fast and it does give great ventilation. I had to get used to the extended vestibule when getting in and out of the tent but did fine once I got used to it. I camped at the Dry Tortugas in Florida for two nights with this tent and stayed totally comfortable in strong winds. I've used the tent several times camping in hot, buggy, rainy Florida and found I was the only one that stayed dry in the rains. Glad to know that others use "cheap tarps" versus paying for footprints. I throw a little mat in the front vestibule and even a tiny step stool in the tent for "stuff", so it's great.

    I love this tent! This is actually the third one I am buying. It is super breathable, amazing for stargazing and ventilation, goes up in 5 minutes and the double exit with the vestibules is the best! My singular warning is that the mesh screening is very delicate so I would recommend carrying screen patch if you camp with dogs or children who are both hard on equipment! It is also super light and freestanding, which is amazing for a 3 person tent! The price is also a steal for marmot quality!

    I give it 4 stars because I have not used it in the rain yet. 30 mph wind and temp in 40s with fly on, very comfy. Minimal breeze, full moon, temp in low 50s, no fly, great night sleep! It is easy to put up and take down and it packs small.
    Yes, I had to add stakes , lines and footprint but.. so what... A good buy and I hope for years of use from this tent.

    First night I had the tent out I didn't check the weather prior to going and was surprised with severe thunderstorms, gusting winds, and torrential rains. The tent held up great. No leaking, didn't blow away. Only dislike is when crawling out through the vestibule my back hits the other half and what rain droplets have remained on their do get you wet. Have yet to try the tent without the fly. Would buy again and would recommend.
