Marmot Limestone 4 person Tent

by February 5, 2015

Introduction

This is a no-frill tent that has the capacity for four people.  It is not a backpacking tent because it weighs a little more than 10 pounds but it makes a great car camping tent.  It provides just enough room for four adults and a few small backpacks – it’ll be tight!  The rest of the backpacks can fit in the vestibule outside.

It is really easy to set-up and I have even set it up by myself in about 7 minutes.

The downside is that there is only one door…which isn’t ideal if there are more than 2 people in the tent.  Also, if there is strong wind then this tent will do some good dancing.  It is sturdy but I remember this tent shaking pretty good in the strong wind – but what tent won’t shake?  I guess we needed to put a few more stakes in the ground…

Marmot makes some great tents and I own two of them now.  The Limestone is a great car camping tent for 2-4 people.

Cost

It retails for about $330

Positives

Easy to set-up and take down. Great for car camping.

Negatives

Not the sturdiest tent in the wind.
