Boasting lightweight, durable construction, a roomy floor plan, and a breathable mesh canopy, the Marmot Limelight 2P tent effectively balances performance, livability, and price. Marmot even throws in a footprint at no additional cost! The versatile tent is ideal for 3-season backpacking or camping.

Intended to house up to three inhabitants, the Limelight 2P offers 33 square feet of interior space and dual doors provide easy access options. The rainfly's integrated vestibules provide weather-protected entryways and more than 16 total square feet of covered storage space (9.5 square feet and 6.7 square feet, respectively). Interior mesh pockets provide out-of-the-way storage options.

Three DAC Press-Fit aluminum poles provide the Limelight 2P with support and freestanding structure. Pre-bent poles at each corner of the tent increase the verticality of the sidewalls, resulting in a ton of elbow room and a greater feeling of livability than tents with poles that taper directly from the ground to the top of the tent. Integrated clips allow the body of the tent 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.

Mesh panels in the walls and ceiling of the Limelight 2P allow air to circulate and combat condensation. The weatherproof floor and full coverage rainfly combine to protect the interior of the tent 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.

Great roomy tent
Reviewed by Ivan P. - September 25, 2018

Likes: Quick, easy setup
Very stable
Footprint included
Good ventilation

Dislikes: Single vestibule

Good value for money
Reviewed by Geva T. - August 1, 2018

Likes: Easy and simple setup, good material quality, flashlight pockets are a fun edition.

Dislikes: Curved poles makes it a bit awkward to fold, the connecting link between the two poles wasn't comfortable to be, i'd prefer if they were separate. Weight is a bit on the heavy side for backpacking tent.

Great all around tent
Reviewed by Scott E. - July 26, 2018

Likes: The orange vestibule is a beautiful color, the zippers, poles, and tent ground are all high quality.

Dislikes: None.

It's my first tent and I like it. The color is my favorite one. The room inside is plenty for me. I can set it up by myself.
Reviewed by Summer - June 22, 2018

Likes: Roomy. Easy to set up. With footprint. Life warranty.

Dislikes: It's quite large after packed although I believe they could make the cover smaller. There is not enough instruction for newbies like me from the package, so I watched some videos from youtube to set it up.

Excellent 2 man tent
Reviewed by Brandon J. - April 16, 2018

Likes: Fast and Easy set up
Dependable Marmot quality

Dislikes: none

Good option for duo backpacking
Reviewed by Chat - March 1, 2018

Likes: Very roomy. Has 2 opening and vestibules. Open mesh top when not using the fly. Can set up the fly with the footprint for an ultra light or dry setup option. Headlamp pockets spread your light for easy reading. Comes with its own color coded footprint. Tent can be split up for 2 people to carry.

Dislikes: It's a tad on the heavy side. One door and vestibule is smaller than the other. Vents don't help reduce condensation.

Set-Up and Features Impressives
Reviewed by Jim H. - December 15, 2017

Likes: Once thru set-up should go quickly for future setups. Lots of storage pockets. Doors are huge. Vertical walls created by bent poles at corners create feeling of wider tent. Impressive tent at a very economical price from Backcountry Edge.

Dislikes: Planning to use for motorcycle and bicycling camping primarily. May be a bit heavy for backpacking tent.

Nice pack tent for those who need a little space
Reviewed by Phil H. - July 13, 2017

Likes: Quality and build, size, easy setup, overall space inside.

Dislikes: Came without the footprint. But I contacted Backcountry and they had a footprint on my door in 3 days.

Pack size and weight is a little high BUT this tent has plenty of room which was what I was looking for.
