Pros Roomy and tall, multifaceted vestibule, simple designTall and long, barn-shaped, versatile front vestibule, adjustable room divider.Fast set up, built-in large vestibule, lots of ventilation, tall ceiling heightRoomy, large vestibule, simple, classic design.Super easy set up and take down, spacious, higher quality than its direct competitors
Cons Fly gets caught up on obtrusive poles, top pole sleeve is strangely tight, vestibule could be largerOnly one vestibule, back door is more exposed to the elements, more poles than most.Can't stand in vestibule, limited views when laying or sitting, poor duffel/stuff sackNot overly innovative, could use more storage.Still mainly a fair weather tent, bulky to carry and transport
Bottom Line Basic and dependable, this tent has similar features to other higher-ranked tents.Options and personalization galore in this excellent tent.Along with the REI Kingdom 6, it's hard to imagine a better family camping tent.For a simple, high-quality tent, the Marmot Limestone 4P's criss-cross design is recognizably comfortable.A quality tent that goes up in mere seconds.
