I've been enjoying this tent on a cross country trip involving hot and cold nights.
Amazingly easy to setup. I often arrive at campsites in the dark and can set this tent up by myself in dim light in less than 10 minutes. I'll also note that shutdown is just as easy and I'm very comfortable packing it up quickly in a way that stores well and allows quick re-setup at the next sight.
Space enough for two typical people -- I'm 5'11" and it was all I needed, no more, no less.
There are two inside pockets next to each door allowing campers to store their wallet, keys, headlamp or anything else that is good to have in a consistent, easy to access location.
The loft works fine, but my head bumps into it so I've stopped using it in order to gain more head room.
On cold nights I've ditched the vestibules and kept the fly close to the tent. It's been 26F outside and 40F inside with no drafts or loss of heat.
It's a perfect fit for two people in length, width and height. That said, a little more of everything would be more comfortable. A couple more inches of headroom would feel better.
When the fly is on and staked down there are two vestibules on each side of the tent. Opening either of the tent's two doors is easy, but zipping down the opening in the vestibule to get out requires a reach. I see Marmot improving the easy of this somehow in the future.
None from here. No defects or breaks so far and other than changes I'd make to suit myself, I see nothing to dislike about this tent.
