I'm not a hardcore hiker, but this tent has worked well for me several times. This tent has withstood good snows and lots of kids. I am satisfied with this tent. Best advice, If it's not going to rain, don't carry the fly.

Two-person car camping or three-person backcountry treks, the Marmot Crib 3-Person Tent gets the job done with aplomb. That's right, we just said aplomb. Apparently someone went to college. Or just had a thesaurus.
The Marmot Crib 3 sleeps 3 campers and has a surprising amount of room. The nearly straight walls are pulled out by an ingenious pole system that creates space as it saves weight. The DAC NSL frame uses a revolutionary floating insert or ferrule to distribute stress without failure and utilizes a wider diameter pole with thinner walls to save weight and add strength. It is easy to set up with the all clip frame and ventilation is fantastic with the mostly mesh body. It has 2 doors and 2 roomy storage vestibules. The full coverage fly is a high tech SilPoly so it is lightweight and won't let the weather in.
