I just came back from my first adventure with this tent. It performed beyond expectations for numerous reasons. First, it fits great in my backpack. I have to take it apart and store the poles separately from the tent but it works much better that way. Secondly, it pitches fast and easy. Thirdly, it stayed warm. My 8 year old daughter and I slept in 30 deg temp. It was windy yet the tent and rainfly stayed tight through approximately 25 -30 mph windgust as a cold front moved in. Fourth, it had no condensation on the inside when we woke up.
Its just a great tent. I love having it. It makes my trips that much more enjoyable and I didnt have to spend $400.

I bought this tent for my hiker/sports enthusiast daughter and won points for buying the best Christmas present ever. This tent is light and easy to pack on long treks and has the little extras such as side entry, easy set-up and plenty of interior room that are appreciated after a long day on the trail. Can't beat it for the price and shipping was on time as promised.

5 Star for this price Range
I started researching tents when my son bridged over to Boy Scouts and I realized that I would be camping with them monthly. Most of our trips are near our vehicles but we do go on a few backpacking trips so, I wanted a decent quality tent that would not break the bank or be extremely heavy. I actually bought the Eureka Apex2 tent for 99.00 and absolutely loved it except for the fact that it was a little short (I'm 6'2). I like the extra features such as the gear loft and the material that zipped up over the windows.
So, I exchanged it for the Marmot in hopes that the extra three inches would be worth the extra 30.00. I have to admit that I was shocked when I set the Marmot up. There was no comparison when it come to the interior room in this tent. The cross bar on the top of the tent really makes the tent feel more open and spacious. I am extremely happy that I exchanged the Eureka for this one. And it is about a pound lighter.

My husband and I just went camping a couple weeks ago. This tent was great. If you are looking for a spacious 2 person tent this is not the one for you. It was just enough room for us though. We were able to keep our bag in the corner and we had enough room to sleep comfortably. It rained a little big our second night out and the bottom of the tent was a little damp. I think that might have been because of the tarp we put under the tent though. So overall we really liked the tent and it was really easy to set up.

Light and Easy to set up
This tent was perfect for our last backpacking trip. Just separate the poles from the canvas in your pack and it packs down plenty small. Our first trip with it was beautiful weather but it sets up easily enough that, in rain or whatever, it should go up quickly enough to keep you dry. It's also big enough to fit me (6'1") and my girlfriend (5'11") comfortably.

Roomy 2 person tent, good value.
Used this tent recently on a 2 night backpacking trip in northern CA. I'm 6'2 and my son is 6'. We both slept comfortably in the Marmot Aspen due to the extra length and width this tent has versus most other 2-person tents. The tent sets up very easily. Had some slight rain the first night and the tent remained dry. Quality of the materials and workmanship seem pretty good for the price. I like the ventalation and that there is a separate door and vestibule for each occupant. Only negative I found was that the stakes bend easily when driving them into rocky soil. Overall, I'm very satisfied so far and think the tent offers a great value for the price.

solid two man tent
a relatively easy tent to set up, excluding the cross pole, this tent is roomy and on the lighter side in your pack. The full fly adds a level of protection that is much needed in the wilderness and I really like the double doors and vestibules.

"quick to set up"
This tent was very light, not skimpy on space for a 2 man, and so easy to set up. We used it in very benign weather so we did not have to use the rain fly or worry about any adverse conditions.

Bought as a gift
My friend and disability assistant needed a two person tent, he studied them all and choose the Marmot. I was happy to buy this for him, for all the helps he provides me in my disabilty.
