    I bought this tent in 2010 to paddle the Grand Canyon. Eight years later, hundreds of nights in it, on dozens of rivers, a deserted Caribbean island, a couple of months in a Mexican desert, and most recently a spring float in Montana with a night of 40mph+ winds, torrential rain and hail, and this thing is still completely dry. Note: it did not come with a ground sheet, so I bought one for it and consider the ground sheet an essential part of this tent system. There are some small holes in the mesh from when some cows wandered into our camp in the Wind River range a few years ago and licked it -raspy tongues are probably not covered under warranty. But they were easily repaired with duct tape which has now been on there for years. The fly is still totally waterproof. There can be condensation issues on cold nights with a zipped rainfly, but that is a dew point issue and not something you can fairly pin on the manufacturer. Unzip the vestibule section of the fly, enjoy the night air, and quit whining about condensation. That said, it is a three season tent. I’ve never tried it in full winter conditions, nor would I want to. It’s too small to fit a wood stove.

    I am 5’10, 170 lbs. It is luxurious for one person. It is cozy for two people. For two of us and our two year old daughter it is at maximum capacity. With a second child imminent we are shopping 4 person tents and will most likely buy another Marmot.

    Love this tent. Two doors and vestibules is great. We have used it for backpacking and its great to have a dry place for 2 packs. Lightweight to carry. Room enough inside for 2 females.

    Having used this tent for a while I am really happy with it. Understand going in that it is a compact backpacking tent that is a simple efficient design and you will be happy. It sets up fast and is well designed. The pockets in the mesh are a nice touch. The fly gives fantastic coverage and has great vestibules. The tent is easy to get into and out of and is very comfortable.

    I wish more equipment was as efficient as this. no bells or whistles just a great tent at a fantastic price.

    I did replace the stakes with MSR stakes and use a generic footprint.

    It gets a star for simple set up....I've been a camper for over 50 years and have owned a few tents over the decades. For the life of me, I can't figure out how so many love this tent.
    First, it's really small. I'm 5'7"/120lbs and I feel cramped. I can't lay flat without my feet or head touching the end of the tent. Two adults? Can't imagine.
    The vestibule doesn't tie down tightly. Only one side (the short side) can be rolled up and secured open to allow you to squeeze into the tent. It's VERY awkward. Granted, when I was younger and more flexible this wouldn't have been such an issue. But I'm still a [...] yogi, and I dread getting in and out of this cocoon.
    I've only used this beast in decent weather conditions, so I can't speak of it's hardiness in bad storms. I'm ISO a replacement and plan to donate this to Goodwill.....
