Better than I imagined.
I never intended to be so jaded towards one brand as I have become towards Marmot. I had to re buy a lot of gear that was getting to old and this tent is the best tent I've used in 10 years. First night I got it in the mail we had a nasty blizzard so it got some heavy heavy snow and wind and stood up with ease. When I awoke in the morning no water in the tent, the vents work great. Has many extra pockets and ties to hook stuff up too. Vest is a little small but my pack still fits in and is to be expected from a light and bombproof tent. Will take to Denali in a few weeks and see how it stands up.

We'll hear back the end of March
I got this tent for my daughter to take to the Patagonia Cordillera, the El Cani Reserve and into the Valdivian Rainforest for nine weeks. Places where all weather conditions are possible. She was able to easily set it up in no time at all, she's only 5'2 and it's nice and light,she said it rocks.

Great Tent, great warrant
This tent is extremely easy to setup (even in the pouring rain) and has served us well through all seasons. Unfortunately, while trying to set it up in a hail storm, I broke a tent pole. This sounds like the beginning of a bad review, but it comes with some nice extra pole pieces that we were able to rig so our trip could continue with a standing tent. After getting home and sending it away for free Marmot got a new pole back to us within 4 weeks. Marmot rocks!

Well constructed, with nice touches.
Easy to set up, sturdy, and long enough (I am 6'1"). This is the first Marmot tent I have owned. I usually stick with Mountain Hardwear (I have a Meridian, and Light Wedge II), but I needed something for winter camping, and this tent had everything I was looking for. It seems to be bomb proof, although I have not tested it in alpine conditions. Very pleased so far.

Great design
This tent has served me well. It is my favorite so far and I have owned several 4season tents. It kept 2 of us dry in pouring rain and did not produce condensation at all. Enough room for two 6" adults and lots of head room too. My favorite feature is the ease of assembly (through external clips) which takes only a minute or two even when it's very windy out there....and the integrated vestibule to leave the stinky shoes and the backpack dry. Very light and compact design.
