User Review: Marmot Limelight 2P
Design: "three-season freestanding dome")
Ease of Setup: Easy set-up
Weight: 4-5 pounds
Price Paid: $189
I bought this tent due to my old (20+years) Eureka Timberlite had seen better days. After many trips the coating was shot and leaked on the last two trips. I did some research and the Limelight 2 seemed like a good fit for my usage (motorcycle and quad camping).
The packed size was not too bad. Setting the tent up is a breeze, nice pole design and clips work great. The vestibule will be a nice addition since the old tent did not have one. The free footprint is good quality and a nice feature without spending extra money.
The gear loft is small and also included with the tent. Small items will fit nicely in it and out of the way. The storage pockets are nice but only one can be accessed when laying down since they are on either side of the door but this is a minor issue.
I haven't tried it in the rain yet but the taped seams are well done so I don't see the rain being a problem. The floor design should also be very good in wet weather. With a good amount of netting the tent stays fairly cool. The fly has a vent that opens and with a little wind it is noticeable inside the tent. The size for 2 people would be crowded but for one it is very roomy.
Overall the Limelight 2 is a quality tent for the money.
