Along with that change...I'd ditch the orange webbing on the tent, fly and footprint webbing.
In addition, the "halo" tent poles cause the rain to pool above each entrance to the tent, on top of the rainfly. Sturdy.
Elmer Been searching for 4-6 person tents here in HK and I was so disappointed on how the outdoor shops here lack the inventory in this tent category. It is our second Limelight tent from Marmot.
Definitely not for rainy weather camping. The tent design is well balanced! Although Marmot designed the Marmot Halo 4 for family camping, it has many features seen in expedition tents including a sturdy pole design and the floor level vents. View Marmot's web page for all technical specifications. No go for camping. Price Paid: $300+/-. All seams are fully taped for a watertight seal. The negative...I prefer more floor coverage...like two inches short of the tent floor all the way around...and this footprint covers much less, so the wet ground dampens your tent floor unnecessarily. One reviewer commented that several other campers in their group thought this was a 6 man tent. What makes this tent line especially pleasing is that you can easily stand up in it. September 3, 2017.
I can have this tent up in 15 minutes rain or shine.
This tent has a handful of helpful features, including storage pockets, a seam-taped full coverage fly with vents, and two d-shaped doors.
It's easy to set up and always kept us dry and comfortable.
March 17, 2013. +307 One item that could easily be avoided if instructions were read and observed, in attaching poles to the tent body...pay strict attention to the location of the center clear-plastic clip that mates the two major orange tent poles. It's lightweight, safe, and durable. Holds really well in windy conditions. You have created a very good website. I have to be honest, after I've sent my purchased and gave my card information, all I've ever did was search for articles pertaining to this tent. It got filthy quick with all the rain, dirt and mud. My desire for this is two-fold: Greater protection from blowing sand and frigid winds...and greater "fly-less" privacy. Overall, I like the tent. It was very fast and easy to put up.
The design and material quality is great as always with Marmot. You can see how the water droplets would run down the poles and drip on the mesh in the photos. The canopy and rainfly are made of 68 denier polyester ripstop, and the fly has an 1,800 mm water-resistant coating.

It was a big amazement for me that the fact is I am totally exposed to the elements and the only thing that separates me from it is a couple of millimeter thick nylon. I would have chosen the green model had it been available.
The HK Observatory has issued a thunderstorm forecast and a Red Rainstorm Warning.
Bound to be your new favorite home away from home, the Limelight 4-Person Tent embraces simplicity and straightforward design. I'll have to figure out the condensation issue, or change trekking climes...which I don't foresee occuring. Ventilation was great, we love the windows. In summary, even though Marmot Halo is 3 lbs heavier and packs down a bit bigger than Marmot Limestone, it offers much more interior volume, floor area, vestibule area and it has a more waterproof fly.
It's a trade off but bigger packed in this case means bigger space once setup. Easy to set up, great quality. The Limelight also has a featured pocket in the bottom center of both doors which allows you to entirely unzip the doors and stow it away in this door "garage," out of the way of messy feet and ground.
Some tents I've owned, you really have to exit the tent interior to fully zip the rainfly door.
This item cannot be exchanged or returned.
However...condensation on the interior of the rainfly was abundant! I want the same one cause I like it. That means heavy rain has fallen or is expected to fall generally over Hong Kong, exceeding 50 millimeters in an hour, and is likely to continue. Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecva from Halo 4-person tent Innovative engineering that creates more vertical sides allowing for more internal space. Its vertical walls allow for plenty of sleeping space, plus the strategic clip placement provides more interior volume for stretching out.
When it comes to weight and pack size Marmot Limestone is the clear winner, it weighs 20 lbs 1.5 oz and packs down to Ø 14.5″ x 25.5″ while Marmot Halo weighs 17 lbs 3 oz and packs down to Ø 10.5″ x 28″. Setup was easy. It's easy to put up and comes with footprint and gear loft. I've been very happy with my two Marmot tents so far, I think they would make a great purchase for you and your family! It is rare to see such positive reviews of any type of product and the fact that the Marmot Halo 4 tent received such outstanding reviews speaks for itself.
Overview: X Marmot Limelight 4P Tent. I also opened a bit of my vestibule doors.
Easy to pack, small pack size for larger tent makes is easy to carry, fairly light for a larger tent too! As I said, we moved up to the Marmot Limelight 4P from the 3P. Being slightly older than some and after a lifetime of bodily abuse...larger tent doors make ingress and egress much easier.
