Great Tent! Best I've ever owned.

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.
