We got rained on our whole camping trip and this thing kept us bone dry! I would highly recommend the nik wax waterproof for this tent to prolong the life of it. Great deal! Will use forever, and make great memories.

This is my first experience with a Marmot tent and I was blown away with the simplicity of setup and the high quality materials this tent offers. I have never spent this much on a tent, but, boy, am I glad I bought it, as it was definitely worth the extra money spent.
The poles snap together almost by themselves. Although I did have help, I could have set it up by myself, it just would have taken a little more time. We had the tent completely assembled & staked in under 30 minutes on our first setup. Could probably do it much quicker next time around.
The double-layer system with the outer shell on this tent is brilliant. It leaves about an inch gap between the inner netting and outer shell. This eliminates inside touching of the shell, which can cause water leakage in single layer tents. The shell also creates a covered 'entryway' directly outside the door, allowing us to keep our rug and shoes (and fire wood) directly outside the door & still be covered.
Our first night camping, it poured rain & we were bone dry inside the tent. Also dry were our shoes and rug under our covered entryway.
My one and only complaint would be that this tent needs more private and/or weather proof venting capability. There are two vents located at opposite corners of the tent, that 'prop' open the shell for ventilation. Luckily our campsite was very shady, and it wasn't too much of an issue. I would be concerned about this if the tent had to be set up in direct sunlight on a hot day.

Brought the tent camping for a week at Yosemite National Park. Set up was very easy and love the multiple pockets where I can stash my clothes. There was one part (a cylinder about 5 inches long) that we can not figure out where it belongs... so didn't use it.. We were very comfortable (2 people with bags and cot beds) and we each had our own door. Too bad it did not come with a footprint.

This tent is easy to put up and relatively lightweight for it's size. It is well constructed and comes with several nice features like overhead pockets, a center eye loop, well made stakes. During my first use of this tent we experienced higher than expected winds (30 mph with gusts in the 50s). This is unusual wind conditions, granted. But it exposed a weakness in this tent which is that the mesh construction doesn't prevent wind and dust from passing through into the tent. We were pelted with sand the entire night despite a couple of attempts to tighten the fly and block the gaps with some of our equipment. I don't think this is a design flaw in the tent, it is a warm weather tent…just something to be aware of depending on where you are planning to camp.

My wife and I just completed a cross country trip and I wish I would have brought my other tent. This tent let all the wind in and we had to use two bedsheets on the front and back to keep the wind out. No good attachments for gear loft and the side compartments were too loose and unsteady to hold a water bottle. I am going back to my Eureka Mountain Pass XTE.
The Marmot Halo 4p has the same floor dimensions so it should work.
