very nice tent

Reviewed by T from Upstate NY on Saturday, September 20, 2014
We have a 2-person tent and a couple bigger 4-person tents, but I thought our family would get a lot of use out of a 3-person tent too. After much deliberation and based on prior good experiences with Marmot on other outdoor items, I picked this Ajax 3P. I was excited to, right out of the box, be able to easily set it up in 5 minutes by myself. Super easy and intuitive. It's nice and roomy inside for two people with lots of headroom (thanks especially to the cross bar at the top), but I don't see how three adults - even small ones - would have a chance of sleeping in this comfortably. Perfect for two people or one adult and two children. The double doors and vestibules make tenting so much easier, and the amount of mesh is awesome for ventilation.

Thanks to the lead in the Q&A section, I ordered a footprint from And while it seems that some other buyers received a gear loft with their tent, I did not, but I'm hoping the Limelight 3P gear loft will work with this one. (It's currently available through Amazon or Campmor.) I use a gear loft with my 2P tent and quickly grew to love its convenience, so I want to have it with this one too!

I'm very happy with this tent and glad I ordered one before they sold out. Oh, and while I usually go for more earthy brown and green tones, I really like the orange and gray coloring of the Ajax.
