Pretty much OOS everywhere in GTA, except Sherway Garden? Good luck I guess.

BTW what's footprint?
RFD: Pick any two.

It’s in stock online with free shipping if there aren’t any in stock close by.

A footprint is basically a tarp that goes underneath the tent to protect the tent floor. It’s cheaper and easier to replace a worn out footprint than it is the bottom of the tent.

Used 10% off. Was looking at Big Agnes tents, but too pricey, especially when I do very limited camping for few days.

Thanks OP

Good price. FYI this would be a tight fit for three people and backpacks but would fit two people comfortably.

Yeah it's only 65" wide, that's less than 2ft per person edge to edge. Definitely not a comfortable way to sleep 3 people. My 2-person tent is 4'7" wide and is perfect for me and my gf. I can't imagine wanting another person in the tent with only 1ft (less, actually) of extra room.

This is a spacious two, or two plus a baby/dog.

Either way it's a good deal

That was my conclusion as well. I don’t know if I’d get it as a “3 person” but if you look at it as a spacious “2 person” the price is hard to beat!

I bought the three person and two person tents at MEC for $250 (which is slightly lower weight thank this marmot) just a few months ago, and they've been fantastic. Quick to put up and take down. Vents, etc. The footprint was $16.
Just putting this out there as a data point. I love Marmot, MSR, OR, stuff...but the deal posted here is a decent sale but nothing to ring the sirens. It's better to buy a tent with the features you need.

Yeah, I was looking at the Spark, but it was $519. That's too much. Of course I ended up buying the MSR Elixir 3 person tent for just under $400. Tents are hard to find now online and I'm going camping in a few weeks so I had to get what was available.

I own one of these tents, barely can fit one person I am 6’1 and 195 pounds. However decent tent for the money when it’s on sale. I use it all the time when camping and it’s great for one person.

recommendations on a better tent that can fit two 2.5 foot wide sleeping pads with ample room? Would I be looking for a 4 person tent?
