Summary:
Great tent! I can set up the tent in 4 minutes (not counting fly and stakes). And, it can be torn down even faster. The windows on four sides are unusual for this size and type of tent. The North Face Stratos has more window area but only on two sides and above. Good ventilation. The D-doors are another big plus. Thoughtfully designed. Quick clips for rain fly are nice as is the roll-up awning.

Summary:
This tent is amazingly good. Through a storm with gusts of up to 60 MPH winds, two other Eureka tents on our trip came unstaked, collapsed, and folded the poles at 90 degree angles. We frantically piled into the Marmot and inside, we were all amazed that all we felt of the storm was the noise. These tents are certainly more expensive than the A frame Eurekas, but the tent you have can make or break a trip.

Summary:
This tent has all the bells and whistles,even the burrito bag(stuff sack) clips inside the tent and provides extra storage. I also like the clip on front brow pole,which makes this tent quick to put up,the other two pole are housed in sleeves. In a downpour, the rainfly does it's job,not one drop made it's way in.This tent ventilates well,two ventilation ports are found the ceiling,which can be shut down from inside the tent if needed.I think Marmot's quality and well thought out design makes it one bombproof tent !!
