Description
Bound to be your new favorite home away from home, the Limelight 2-Person Tent embraces simplicity and straightforward design. Its vertical walls allow for plenty of sleeping space, plus the strategic clip placement provides more interior volume for stretching out. If rain clouds move in, color-coded “easy pitch” clips, poles, and fly make for an easy set-up, and the seam-taped, catenary-cut floor prevents pooling. Protect your investment by using the included footprint. One super-sized door offers easy access, while two vestibules hold all your camping gear. After an epic day of adventuring, tuck a headlamp into the lampshade pocket for ambient light at night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Think Twice If You Are Tall I have camped in this once so far, seems like quality construction. Easy to put up and quite a few nice features. Only complaint is that the floor dimensions are smaller than advertised. At 6’7” every inch of length counts. This is advertised as 88” long, measures 84” in reality. For me that is the difference between being able to sleep straight in the tent which would allow for a second person and having to sleep at an angle turning it into a strictly single person tent. Frustrated that the advertised length is incorrect but this is a common problem with tent manufacturers. 4” will not make a difference to most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice features for the price Got this for a backcountry trip and love it. It's big enough for 2 6-foot tall men, and our camping backpacks fit in the vestibule area on either side. 2 doors is a nice touch and it was lighter than my buddies 3-person tent. 1 person can set it up in less than 5 minutes and only the vestibules really need to be staked it. O did bend a stake the first day I had it trying to get into hard rock ground. It was a nice touch that it includes a perfectly sized tarp however it does NOT cover the vestibule areas, only the main tent area. It seems to have attracted bugs, bug I used it the first night after buying it so it may just need to air out. I am also looking into some tent bug spray to take care of the problem. Also invest in a 2 person emergency blanket and use it on the bottom of the tent, it really helps keeping the cold out. Hope you find this useful

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Note on packed size I'm quite happy with the quality and features of the tent. The other reviews cover the pros/cons well so I won't repeat them here. However I wanted to address some of the comments about the 18"x7" claimed packed size. It appears some people received a two-piece ridge pole that fold to about 23" long. This would be the only piece that's longer than 18" so people either had to pack the ridge pole separately or live with it sticking out of the sack. I purchased my tent two weeks ago and it had a three-piece ridge pole. It collapses to under 18" long so I was able to pack up the tent to the claimed packed size comfortably. If you got a two-piece ridge pole with your tent, contact Marmot for a replacement!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this tent except for... Purchased this tent for the room and the belief that it was waterproof. First night it rained on me and my rainfly has water soaking through it almost immediately. I had to cover my down quilt with my emergency blanket to keep the rain off of it while sleeping in 50 degree weather. I love the size of this tent, the ease of set up and tear down, but to take it out and get rained on the very first night was such a disappointment. I intend to contact Marmot when they are open for business. I will update this review with the results of the call.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 2p tent I bought my limelight 2p tent two years ago, as a step up from a generic dome tent. I’ve used it mostly for car camping & short backpacking trips, and usually by myself. The steep walls, ridge pole, and the vestibules provide a lot of useable space; I usually use it solo, and it’s palatial. When I have had a roommate, it was not at all cramped. love the lightweight metal tent poles as opposed to the fiberglass I was used to (which would always split and splinter). Only real complaint is that the rain fly started to leak a few months ago - but it’s been a few years, and some nikwax should make it good as new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tent This tent is beautiful. The colors are amazing and don’t seem to have faded at all since I bought it during the Labor Day sale in 2018. I’ve camped in it at least once a month since it was purchased. Marmot thought of everything! There are many pouches in the tent that can hold items such as cell phones, lights and glasses. I utilize each added feature each time I use it. I couldn’t be happier with the way this tent performs. It is light weight, small and easily assembled and disassembled. The rain fly is legit and has never let water pass through, even in the gnarliest of weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kept me dry! I earned a tent in a wellness challenge at work. After a lot of research, I picked the Limelight 2P. Was a great choice. First solo trip out in the BWCAW of Northern MN - four days - rained hard, every nite. One of the days there was a measured 3' inches locally. I was in the tent from 8 pm to 10 am the next day. Stayed dry thru the trip. good roominess. The footprint worked great, but I always put a liner inside the tent as well. Would not have needed it. Water pooled around the tent but did not come over the top of the foot print. Set up was easy, so was packing/unpacking. Never got to enjoy the star gazing opportunity because I couldn't take the rain fly off. Experienced a lot of condensation on the interior of fly/vestibules, even with the 2 top vents open. All around, a great canoe camping tent. Highly recommend this, especially for solo trippers. If using it as a true 2 person tent, the people should be pretty close - because they will be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. I bought this tent because I had a Marmot Limelight 2p that I bought back in 2011 that has made it through 6 years of hard use and put up a pretty good fight. A few weeks ago I finally put a hole through the sun faded rain fly. I am a backcounty Ranger and have probably slept in this tent for over 400 nights during my 6 years of having it. It has been pitched in the backcountry of the sierras for 5 months straight and has been taken out for weeks in the greater Yellowstone area before making its way with me to the desert, not to mention traveled coast to coast on numerous personal trips, including a 4 month road trip. Its sad to see this tent go, but I am not disappointed in my purchase as it has held up better than any tent I've owned. Plus, the new tent has some updated features that I've been pretty stoked on, like the 2nd door/ vestibule and headlamp storage pockets- which are way more useful than the old attic. I also like the meshing patterns better, with the complete mesh top and full nylon bottom; it works better in rain that's blowing sideways and is better for a rain fly-less stargazing nights. While other crew mates and rangers tents have leaked during endless downpours or zippers failed during the height of mosquito season, this tent kept me out there enjoying what I love to do. I have never felt compelled to write a review before, but Marmot makes a great product.
