A tent that packs in a lot of features, for those backpackers who want a more liveable space when out on the trail.
You home away from home in the hills, the Limelight 3P is a room tent made so by pre-bent poles that add space without the weight. An extra wide door makes it easy to get your stuff setup while kneeling in the vestibule, and double vestibules give you room to store packs (or a wet dog).
An incredibly spacious tent, the vertical walls and huge doors really give a more homely impression than most backpacking tents. The pre-bent poles and strategic clip system give a large box-like liveable space, vertical walls and the large floor area mean you get a lot of sleeping space, and that all of the area is usable, unlike most tents that have tapered walls. You get a lot of headroom and 3 adults can easily sit up in the tent without brushing up against the sides. This results in it not feeling claustrophobic, especially if you are confined due to bad weather.
Its very simple to pitch, and as it comes with the foot print included, which adds value to the tent. The interior of the tent has small gear storage pockets, a laundry line to hang gear or clothing, it even has a lamp shade pocket.
I think this would make a really good base camp, especially if you are a small family or maybe have a dog, its not something I would be taking wild camping up in the hills, but at a low down campsite, this would be perfect.
