Family campers and base campers alike will love the roomy Marmot Limestone 6P. When elbow room, overhead height and full protection from wet weather are a priority, the Limestone 6P offers standout performance and features.
In addition to its cavernous interior (83 square feet with an interior height of 76"), the Limestone 6P includes dual vestibules that boast an additional 45 square feet (the larger vestibule is 25 sq ft and the smaller vestibule is 20 sq ft) of sheltered storage space for stowing camp chairs and wet shoes. Two large, D-shaped doors provide convenient entry/exit from the tent.
Four DAC DA-17 14.5mm aluminum poles lend the Limestone 6P sturdy, freestanding support and the two cross poles at the ceiling create plenty of headroom. The multiple, integrated fly vents and extensive mesh on the walls, door and ceiling provide the Limestone 6P with optimized low to high ventilation to help combat condensation and provide better air flow on hot, summer nights. The waterproof and rugged floor and fully taped rainfly combine to protect the interior of the Limestone 6P from wet weather.
Available in your choice of colors, the Marmot Limestone 6P includes a hanging organizer and doormat. A compatible, custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the Limestone 6P from sharp objects, mud and ground water.

- Loved it. Very spacious.
Likes: Fits queen and twin mattresses. Plenty of pockets. Can stand up inside tent.
Dislikes: The rainfly portion above door converts onto a small canopy; however, there are no poles provided. Must buy them separately.
- Awesome Tent
Likes: First, the service at Backcountry Edge was off the charts. Gear specialists answered specific questions about the materials, were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Never before have I seen the service from an online retailer. Gear Specialists played a huge role in my purchase.
Aesthetics: I went with the green version, and it looked great. With or without the fly, very nice. My wife, who was hesitant about the purchase, often commented about how cool looking it was. Not important you say? Happy wife = Happy life.
Materials: All very quality. Compared to the competition, the Limestone is superior. In it's thickness and waterproof-ness of floor, it's durability of fly, and tent walls, in addition to stakes/poles. Setting it up, I was really pleased with how solid the construction was. Also the bag was more than large enough. In fact I might try to find a smaller bag, especially if I want to take it backpacking someday.
Set-up: Easy and fast (was assisted by my 6 and 3 year old daughters)
Size: I'm 5'10" and could stand up with room to spare. I was looking for a tent big enough for me, the wife, and three small kids. Limestone 6 was perfect, and if we had to we could fit another person. We had a queen-size air mattress in there and room enough for at least a single mattress. the 2 poles that run along the top of the tent really do provide a roomy interior, almost vertical on the front and back walls.
Ventilation: A big consideration as I'm in Central Florida. I had the family on a weekend trip were it was 90% humidity, and 89/90 degrees during the middle of the day...so it felt like a sticky 95 degrees. The tent performed really well. We had the fly off for a night and the fly on for a night, both comfortable...aided by a few fans. Wife commented that she liked being able to look up at the trees, through the mesh. It was really a great view, but the fly on kept the brightness down in the morning, so I think we slept a bit longer. Very impressive all around.
Weather resistant: I was secretly hoping it would rain, but no such luck. Other than being hot and humid, the weather was pretty nice. Unable to speak to it's rain/wind resistance, but everything I've read says it's a bunker, which is important in this region.
I would recommend you get the Limestone 6 Footprint. It's the same type of material as the free doormat used for the entrance side. Doormat was really nice by the way.
This is a really capable, durable, breathable, and great looking family tent. I would highly recommend it. Already planning out next camping trip. Thank you Backcountry Edge!
Dislikes: Wish there was some mesh towards the lower part of the tent. Not a big deal though.
Likes: The quality. Ease to put up,by myself. Headroom,overall size &size of vestibules. Confident will hold up in bad weather. Full,sturdy fly.Ventilation.
Likes: A family of four used this the 6P Limestone tent in Rocky Mountain National Park. The inside was roomy enough for two queen air mattresses with room near the entrance for packs. Vestibule worked well to provide some shelter from rain/hail that hit us off and on over 2 days. The tent with fly was fully staked out and held up well against moderate wind and rain mixed with hail. So far I am definitely pleased with the purchase.
Dislikes: Tent entrance zipper gets a bit "sticky" with excess fabric if you're not careful. Not a big deal but a little annoying a night when you're groggily headed for the bathroom.
Difficult to find a footprint specific for this tent. We opted to use a simple tarp, which worked well, so that is an easy fix.
