Marmot Limelight 3This is the Marmot Limelight 3 persons tent (ad) review.


The Marmot Limelight 3 Persons Tent (ad) first was released in 2011 and has been a top rated tent since that time. It is for use in 3 seasons (those being summer, spring, and fall) and is of very solid construction and is very weather proof. It packs quite light when using the fast pitch option (4 lbs 2 ounces) which makes it an option for backpacking.

Not only is this a large tent that is lightweight, of solid construction, and weather proof, it also has practically every bonus feature you could want. These include the tent sack, a footprint, a window covering in the rainfly, noise free water proof zippers, a gear loft and interior pockets, and two vestibule areas, also two doors.
