Rated 3 out of 5 by MesaGuy Good Inexpensive Tent, but a lot of compromises to hit price point. The design on this tent is nice, but it is an inexpensive tent that has a lot of compromises to hit the price point. Marmot has a nice design, this is basically a watered down version of the Limelight 2P. Limelight 2P comes with gear loft, footprint, better poles (DAC press-fit), and a more waterproof floor (3000m), the Aspen has none of those things, but the tent body is patterned on the Limelight. The Aspen 2P tent has Aluminum poles, but they are not DAC hard anodized poles, so they will be more subject to stress cracking, so this tent is not going to last as long as more expensive tents with better poles such as Easton, DAC, DAC pressfit, DAC DA17,DAC featherlight, etc. poles. Poles are not DAC press-fit, so the weight is a bit heavier on this tent as well. It is less waterproofed. The fly is a 1800mm hydrostatic pressure raring, and so is the floor with a 1800mm PU water proofing level. Better tents have 2000mm or 3000mm coatings on the floor. 1800mm is a little light for floor waterproofing. If using a footprint, I would make sure to either get the one specifically designed for this tent, or else take care that NONE of substitute footprint, or tarp based footprint sticks outside of the tent footprint boundary, because if water gets trapped between tent and footprint, it will come through this floor with only a 1800mm PU coating. Setup your fly so it is an inch narrower all around than the tent, not an inch or two wider. 2 doors is great. The end (narrower) of the tent fly needed guy points to make sure that the fly doesn't sag. To compensate, make sure the corners are taught in the staking, and use the fly guy lines and set them to pull out towards the door faces more than you would naturally do, this keeps the cross poles taught, can helps keep the fly from sagging. All mesh sides is going to be cooler/colder. than even the Limelight. That is nice in the summer, and not so nice in rainy/colder weather. At a low price, this tent is a good bargain. If you want a few-times a year backpack tent, at a middle-high weight, with above average roominess, this tent is a good buy. Certainly lighter, for more money, or strong, for more money, or more waterproof, again more money, tents are out there. For mostly summer backpacking, this tent is likely going to be fine, if you handle the footprint situation properly, and you do not get water saturated ground, you will be fine in this tent. But heavy rain, or saturated ground, water will probably come through the floor. June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Great tent This tent took about 5 minutes to set up and it was so easy. The zippers are great and very easy to use. There are sewn in hooks for a gear loft and one in the center of the roof for a lantern. There a 3 mesh pockets the throughout the inside edges of the tent so very well done on storage. Having two doors is a plus too. The rainfly and it's two vestibules work great. Sadly I learned that when I got caught in a thunderstorm. Overall great tent. June 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by nuchie buchie Great tent, not a lot of specs/information about it. The tent itself is very good. My wife and I used this on a car camping weekend trip. I have been trying to compare price/specs with this tent against the Limelight 2P after buying and using the Aspen 2P and feel happy with our purchase. Sure the Limelight 2P comes with a free gear loft+footprint but from the specs, it's slight shorter L+W and only has 1 door. Getting the Aspen 2P on sale for about $100 less than the Limelight, is a great buy I feel. Evidently Dick's does indeed have a $30 Aspen 2P Footprint #28620 and it's UPC code is: 7 85562 08162 8. I do have a slight concern since the brow pole, that makes the door nearly vertical, is pretty tight fitting. Will see over time how the seams hold up. My wife and I are under 5'6" and this tent was definitely spacious enough for our 2X 66"x20" sleeping pads + backpacks at our feet. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by shooter Awesome Tent Just ordered this on-line recently and other similar terms go for much more. Everything from Dicks Sporting Goods went flawlessly. Marmot makes great tents and I don't even have a single complaint about this product. Went camping over the weekend and got to use the tent. Very roomy compared to other tents of similar size. I'm 6'1", slept with another person and had plenty of room. Small and light enough to pack on a motorcycle or kayak to. Great tent. I got 25% off and free shipping. You won't be ?issapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dave Great tent Went 3 day backpack camping in red river gorge in Kentucky with my 6'3" son. Tent fit us both perfect with outside area, under the rain fly, for area to store our backpacks. Purchased Thor 2 Footprint, which is the correct size to fit under this tent. Highly recommend this tent, especially for 2 tall people. Watched youtube video on how to set up, to be sure I had it correct, before heading out. Worth watching video. May 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Niles Very good tent for the price Tent is pretty big for a 2 man and seems really well built. It's tall enough that you can easily sit up in it yet low enough that it can handle heavy winds. I only used it on a 3 night er in good weather so I can't comment on the water handling capabilities of it but am impressed with the initial quality. May 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by riffroof Great design! Having doors and gear vestibules on either side makes this a perfect two person tent. It goes up in a snap (no threading poles into sleeves) and the spreader at the top gives you lots of headroom. Don't know how it would hold up under a 6" snowfall, but the aluminum poles and full coverage fly should hold up well to most 3-season weather - and it has worked great so far this winter. And if you are looking for a footprint, the 5x7 PU coated nylon tarp they sell at W@lm@rt couldn't be a better fit. February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucasmpt Excellent tent! I have used this tent on several backpacking trips, one of which included a night of 70 mph gusts and two inches of snow. I am happy to say the tent held up great. It is very spacious for a two person tent and packs light. Condensation has not been a problem and it breathes very well. I recommend making a footprint from tyvek and upgrading the stakes. October 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eerock Light, Easy and user friendly! I have a slightly larger tent but opted to purchase this model because on a bicycle trip weight was a factor. The tent sleeps two quite comfortably. Two doors are fantastic. With the side doors it's so easy to slip in and out and you never have to climb over or bother a sleeping friend. I used it on a hot night without the fly and it breathes real nice. With the fly it comes all the way to the ground providing a sizable vestibule for equipment and good rain protection. It sets up very easy too. October 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kade Great Tent This is a nice little tent. It doesn't come with a footprint, which would've been nice, because you'll get wet if the ground is damp. As long as you put something under it, it does wonderful. My wife and I slept through slight rain all night with no problems. We stayed nice and dry, and we love the door on each side! August 29, 2013
