The Marmot Limestone 6 Person Tent is a family tent for housing a group of six at the campground. The two doors are on opposite sides, so one kid can escape out the front while the other leaves from the back. The single vestibule provides space for discarding dirty shoes, while still protecting them from the rain. On warm nights, leave the canopy propped open to allow a breeze to flow through. When rain won’t allow for an open canopy, vents in the rainfly help to ventilate. An included hanging organizer keeps small items off the floor for easy location in a hurry. Get ready for some quality time with the family.

First timer - high quality - goes together easyFirst time campers...my son and I put it together with no problem in about 20 minutes including the rain fly. Build quality looks great. Materials are high quality. Color coding made it easy. Plenty of floor space and head room. Nice design and looks easy to use. Will add another review after camping with it at the State Park. Only area where there may be room for improvement would be packing instructions or a larger compression sack to stuff it back into. Maybe just because we are first timers, but it's quite difficult to get it back together as nicely as it came packed. Overall, I'd buy it again and recommend to others.

Bomb ShelterI have had this tent since 2012. In the last 40 years I have had many tents, none as well designed or as well made as the Limestone 6P. I have never been in a very heavy rain with the Limestone, but I have been in a constant rain for three days in the high 30s and stayed warm and bone dry. I saw a comment about the poles bending. They are pre curved which may account for that comment. As for the stuff sack, why is that an issue. Just get a duffle bag to carry it in. You need more room when it is wet anyway. The tent is very roomy compared to other tents I have with a similar foot print due to the upright walls formed by the extra top poles. The two vestibules add a LOT of extra room. This is a great tent, if you buy it you will not regret it.

Awesome Tent!I replaced a well recognized brand tent with the Limestone 6 with my son's recommendation. (He has the Halo 6) Used it twice in 30 days and admire the quality and features. We received 1/2 inch of rain in about 4 hours one day and all my gear stayed dry inside. The fly is outstanding...does what a tent fly should do...cover the tent!

sturdy constructionWe bought this tent two years ago after lengthy research. This one was the one we thought would suit our needs. Last Labor day we got caught in the worst wind storm I have been associated with when camping. The tent withstood all mother nature could throw at it. We are extremely happy with this tent. Would highly recommend it.

Good TentGood tent. Easy to setup. Wish the tent bag was a little bigger as it is hard to pack as efficiently!

Very happy with the tentAfter looking at the Limestone 6P for a while and seeing a couple in action a few times, we finally got a 2013 model from a major outdoor-gear vendor. As far as we can tell, the 2013 model differs from the 2014 model mainly by the storage pockets on the inner tent as well as by the design of the doors on the rainfly: D-shaped doors on the 2013 model; two zippers on the sides on the 2014 model.
Bottom line: We absolutely love, love, love this tent!
I don’t want to belabor the general remarks others have made all over the internet regarding quality of fabric, space, etc., but there are a few things I’d like to stress:
- very easy to set up. I am used to decades of high-efficiency mountaineering tents where simplicity counts. One of the biggest reasons to get the Limestone was in fact how easy it is to set up, even in windy conditions; no small feat for a tent this big. Put the two long poles in, erect the tent, and you’re good to go. The rest is just tidying everything up. It literally takes only a few minutes. The tent is free-standing, i.e., it can be moved in a jiffy, if a better spot presents itself.
- wind resistance: due to the dome design, the Limestone 6P stands up to wind better than most other designs. We recently camped in quite windy conditions, and while some tents around us were shaking quite badly, ours was stable as a rock (almost, see below).
- the rainfly goes all the way to the ground. This looks like a strange feature to point out, but believe me, when it’s raining, you’d want the fly to go all the way down. Many other tents in this category have rainflies that sometimes cover only half of the sides, inviting rain in. Do not compromise on this feature.
- In our experience, the poles are undersized. In one of the long poles, we had a section of 3 segments severely bent after the first use. I believe the reason is that, when erecting the tent, there is a lot of stress on the poles that can concentrate in a small section, which then can get bent. Subsequently, we figured out a way that seems to minimize stress: 1. push the long poles through the sleeves and place one end into the respective grommets; 2. one person grabs the loose ends of one pole, another person grabs the second one; then both push their respective pole in while lifting the tent up; 3. As one pushes the poles through, make sure the top section of the tent where the sleeves are is evenly spread out. If it bunches up on one side of the tent, it will cause that section of the poles to bend more than necessary. All this can be a bit tricky when it’s windy, but it pays to be careful here.
- stuff sack: as mentioned by others, the stuff sack is a bit on the small side. However, this is not a big problem, particularly not when car camping. We generally put our tents into a plastic storage bin, with the individual parts layered according to the order of their use: at the bottom are bags with guylines and in-tent stuff (lantern, gear loft, small broom, etc.), then comes the doormat, then the rainfly, then the main tent, then the groundcloth and stakes, and finally the poles on top of the bundle.
- doormat: why a con? The doormat is fantastic, in fact. But there is only one! There are two identical vestibules, and after enjoying the one doormat, we certainly wished there was another one for the other side.
- guylines: I wish higher-end tents like the Limestone 6P would come with reflective guylines. Alas, I have gotten used to ordering lengths of Glowire lines with every tent I bought over the last decade or so.
- guyline attachment points: there are none on the inner tent. When using the tent in warm weather where the rainfly isn’t needed, there is thus not a way to increase the stability of the tent in windy conditions. We also found that the rainfly could use a couple of strategically placed guyline attachment points on the doors. We recently camped in quite windy conditions, and the doors were the areas that showed the most flapping. Not a terribly big deal, though.
- mesh panels: this a tricky one and is probably what sets one line of tents apart from others. Some tents have solid panels that can be closed over the mesh panels, thus increasing privacy and warmth in colder weather, but the solid panels add weight and complicate things a bit. Still, to turn this tent into a 3.5-season tent, and to be able to use it better with the rainfly off, it would be great to be able to cover up most of the mesh panels to about hip-height.

Great tent!We purchased this tent a week ago for our family (two adults, a two year old, a four month old, and our dog). We took it on our first adventure knowing that the weather may not be great for camping. The first night we had winds of 76 km/hr and 11.6 mm of rain. Needless to say, we were dry, relatively warm and the tent stayed in place. The tent has lots of space for the full family and our gear. Compared to our previous tent, this one is much more stable in windy conditions. We hope to have lots of happy adventures.
Referring back to the one comment that mentioned the poles bending after the first use: the tent's poles are slightly bent when new. This allows the poles to shape the roof correctly.
However, we have not figured out how to get the tent back into the bag properly, so packing instructions would be nice.
After our first camping trip in this tent, in less than ideal conditions, I would recommend it for high-wind and rainy conditions.

Easy setup fits a familyWe love this tent
With a young growing family we can fit an air mattress portacrib and a chair for my wife to nurse the baby and there is still room for dog if we had one
The massive porch helps keep it clean
Does the current model (August 2016) have higher solid panels on the inner tent? I've seen pictures that seem to show this. That would take care of the suggestion that xvimbi made a couple of years ago. Also, have more guy line attachments been installed?
Asked by: tahoeyosemite
Thanks for reaching out to us! But enough small talk. Let's get to the answers! For the solid panel question, all you need to do is check out the picture up above. With Moosejaw, what you see is what we got....and what we got is on our site! As for the second question, we haven't received any word that any more (new) guy lines have been installed. Hope this helps you out! Hugsies.
