Marmot Tungsten Vs Limelight

Planning to spend a night under the stars? Camping can be an amazing experience—with the right shelter that is. You want to be comfortable out of the weather and away from pesky insects.

More importantly, you want a good night’s rest before tomorrow’s adventure. If you’re backpacking, you’ll also bear the weight of your tent the entire day.

That means a needlessly heavy tent will literally weigh down your backpacking experience.

The livability of your chosen tent will determine how enjoyable your nights are. Marmot Limelight and Marmot Tungsten tents provide the best of both worlds. They are not only lightweight but also incredibly livable.

The Tungsten blends durability, spaciousness, and intuitive livable design creating a tent that will go with you every mile of your trip.

The Limelight, on the other hand, is all about providing quick set-up and weight-minimization while ensuring a classy camping experience.

So which one should you choose?

While these tents have a lot in common, they have some differences that set them apart. This Marmot Limelight vs.

Tungsten comparison review will help you choose the best tent for your specific needs.

Best Heavy Duty Tent Stakes

I love camping, but I’ve had my fair share of miserable camp experiences, especially when it comes to tent problems. When I was a kid, my camp-loving family actually swore off tent camping and bought a trailer after the worst tent experience ever.

Of course, trailer camping isn’t quite the same as tent camping, you certainly can’t pack a trailer out into the wilderness. Want to enjoy great camping trips without tent failures? Then you need to invest in some good tent pegs.

Everyone knows the tent pegs that come with most tents are crap. You can’t pound them into hard dirt or expect them to stick in soft earth.

I once watched with great amusement as a friend’s tent blew across the beach after its tent pegs totally failed in the sand. If you don’t want to be the dude chasing a tent – or pounding dangerous rebar in the ground—then it’s time to get some real tent pegs.

If you want something you can rely on, then it’s a good idea to invest in quality tent pegs. As a rule, these tend to be affordable, and they can be worth their weight in gold when you get a good night of sleep out in the wilderness.

Wondering where to get good tent pegs for your next camping trip? You’re in the right place! We’ll look at the various types of tent stakes and give you a recommendation for each.
