Boasting lightweight, durable construction and a roomy floor plan, the Marmot Limelight 2P is a value-priced 2-person tent. Designed for 3-season backpacking and camping, the Limelight 2P is ready for your next backcountry adventure.



Boasting lightweight, durable construction, a roomy floor plan and an abundance of mesh, the Marmot Limelight 2P is a value-priced 2-person tent. Marmot even throws in a gear loft and footprint at no additional cost. Designed for 3-season backpacking and camping, the Limelight 2P is ready to accompany you on your next backcountry adventure.

Intended to house up to two people, the Limelight 2P offers 32 square feet of interior space. The full coverage rainfly's integrated vestibule provides a weather-protected entryway and an additional 9 square feet of covered storage space. Interior mesh pockets and a gear loft which clips into the ceiling are included with the Limelight 2P, serving as out-of-the-way storage options.

Three DAC Press-Fit aluminum poles provide the Limelight 2P with support. Integrated clips allow the body of the Limelight 2P to attach quickly, easily and securely to the poles. The freestanding design enables you to set up the tent and then move it around your chosen campsite to find the optimal rock-and-root-free position. Reflective highlights in the fabric of the Limelight 2P make it easy to spot when returning to camp after dark or in low-light conditions.

Mesh panels in the walls and ceilings of the Limelight 2P allow air to circulate and combat condensation. The weatherproof floor with catenary cut and rainfly combine to protect the interior of the Limelight 2P from the elements.

A custom-fit footprint is included to further protect the floor of the Marmot Limelight 2P from sharp objects, mud and ground water. The Limelight 2P's design offers a bare bones set-up option. If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the provided footprint for an even lighter tarp-style set-up.

The Marmot Limelight 2P is available in your choice of colors.

Likes: Great tent. Quite spacious for 1 person. Set-up is fast and it seems strong enough. The gear loft is nice, I like to put my headlamp up there at night. Cool green/gray color scheme that blends in well.

Dislikes: I'm 6' 3", so it's a close fit lengthwise, but this shouldn't be a problem for most folks.

Likes: very light and well build for packing

Dislikes: a little small

Reviewed by Luke J. - May 23, 2014

Likes: This is my solo tent. Its is very to set up by yourself like the others in the series. Roomy for one pushing it with two but manageable. Free foot print is nice for protecting the floor and increasing the life of the tent. Like the dark color option to blend in with the background better. Strong tent with proper set up. Love this brand

Dislikes: Minor complainants would be it has only one door. The foot print dose not extend to the vestibule. Last tent floor is not a full rectangle it dose taper a bit at one end.

Reviewed by Eric V. - April 19, 2014

Likes: Quick and easy setup. The markings on the tent and fly are great to get the oriented the first time. I also have a Marmot Hoot tent and sometimes I've got to double check it before I put it over the tent. The other nice feature is they it's free standing and you can use the rain fly sans tent.

Dislikes: The stakes seem to bend really easy and do not go into hard ground easy. I switched them out for some MSR mini groundhogs (they go into hard ground easier and seemed to hold pretty well even in wind). Also, I didn't like how far down the mesh came on the ends so I made some short panels held in place with small magnets in case of a heavy rain.

Likes: This is a great lightweight tent.
Very nice design and extremely easy setup.

Dislikes: nope

Reviewed by Austin B. - February 15, 2014

Likes: The tent is very light, easily fit's into my pack and is also very simple to set up. I've used it in rain, snow and sunshine and in all climates it's kept me dry. The included tarp and gear loft is an added bonus.

Dislikes: The window looks like it would be a great option, but don't expect so see 20/20 through it, helps bring in light though.

Dislikes: ...

Likes: Comes with gear loft and footprint! Great price. Love the color!

Dislikes: Thought it came with two doors. Guess not

Reviewed by Brandon D. - December 1, 2013

Likes: Overall the tent has been great. Lightweight and packable. Enough room for myself + gear in the high alpine.

Dislikes: Would like to see dual entry on this tent.

Reviewed by Alan M. - October 30, 2013

Likes: The tent is well made. I am not a backpacker. Bought tent for solo camping. First night got to try out in 3 hour rainstorm. No leaks whatsoever. Temps ranged in mid 40's. No condensation. The vents worked great. The tent is easy to setup. To me this is a 1 man tent. I like the tent.

Dislikes: I knew the size of the tent & vestibule so I am not downing it but due to size of both it would really be tight for 2 people. IMO, You would need an extra tarp to store gear in due to size of vestibule and only one door.
