Rated 4 out of 5 by KTM690 Go-to Summer-time tent I am a little obsessive when it comes to tents. I own more tents than a person should. REI, Big Agnes, Kelty, Mountain Smith, Marmot, Sierra Designs. This is one of my favorite tents, though. The one thing I wish it had was top vents on the rainfly, but other than that, this tent is spacious, the easiest tent in the world to setup, not too heavy for my motorcycle camping and just fun, comfortable and well-made for the money. The tent body has a lot of mesh while the bathtub solid material comes up only a few inches (maybe six inches???). This makes it a very airy tent that does great on the hottest days of summer, allowing the maximum breeze to hit you. On cooler windy days, however, I find it is a little too much exposure. If there is a lot of wind, it easily gets under the rainfly, past the low bathtub solid material and into your tent. Again, if it's hot, this is the best-case scenario, but if it's cold, it can wear you down if you didn't pack a hearty enough sleeping bag. After using other tents, I have come to prefer the simplest pole system, and this seems to be it for the space. If you camp a lot, like I do, and you go on long trips where you have to setup and breakdown every day for multiple days, then you begin to see the advantage of this kind of tent's simplicity. Space to weight ratio, durability and simplicity it is difficult to find any tent in this price range (or even more expensive) that can compete with the Marmot Aspen. It will accommodate two people, but if I were taking two, I'd probably opt for the Aspen 3. However, with 57 inches of width, it is probably the single most spacious 2P tent on the market. 93 inches of length? Gotta love it! As a one person tent, with room to spare, you can opt to bring gear in or keep it in either vestibule. Two doors another big plus. Highly recommend this tent and should give it 5 stars, but I am probably the most severe critic of tents you will find for my requirements. To me, there is no 5 star tent out there because 5/5 means perfect. But if 5 stars means "excellent" like it does here, then it gets 5 stars.. It is an excellent summer-time tent. Solid, and ready to take on the elements. Not the lightest, but highly affordable and efficient if you don't need to count grams. December 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gbyke Loved it. Hiked the Wagon Road trail last weekend and took my new tent. While it was a little heavy it was great. I like the size and the almost verticals side walks. My hike partner was jealous. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by arbitraryNickname Cheap and Solid Tent Took it camping for a very rainy week and the only time any water got in was when one corner was actually held underwater for an extended period of time August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gunny Excellent Tent My son and used this ten on a 12 day hike in Philmont NM. It held up great and had ample room for us and our gear. It handled hail the size of golf balls and wind that flattened other tents in our group. Great value for the money. August 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Llippert Two nights in the Tetons The tent is excellent quality both in design and construction. It kept us warm and dry in high winds and light rain at 10,000 ft. I do wish it was lighter though. Not the best solution for long hikes. July 21, 2014
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.
