Looking to upgrade my  backpacking tent .  I have a two person Marmot lime light  but want something ultralight if anyone is selling.

I have a MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2p if you're interested - about 2lbs lighter than your Limelight.  There are two very small holes in the mesh that I have not yet repaired, but should be an easy fix/patch - or maybe MSR would warranty it.  There's also some very faint yellow spotting on the rainfly, but it's purely cosmetic.  Tent is otherwise in great condition and less than a year old.  Anyway, let me know if you're interested and I can send pics - not sure if it's ultralight enough for you, but you can also use just the fly and footprint to cut weight.

How old is the tent?  How many times has it been used?  Any leaks/holes/stains?  Footprint included?  How much are you asking?  Do you have any photos of it?  Need more info.

Check out zPacks--custom ultralight gear.

Mark - are your questions for me or OP's Marmot tent?  As I stated in my first response, there are two very small tears in the mesh (largest maybe 1cm?), there is cosmetic faint yellow spots on the rainfly, and it's less than 1 year old.  Been out a handful of times.  I tend to default to my burlier Half Dome instead.  Footprint is included.  Would sell for 290 shipped?  Can post pics tomorrow if interested.

I did the Appalachian Trail with a Henry Shires TarpTent. Most of his models are <2lbs and pretty affordable. I highly recommend them if you are a trekking pole user. I had an early version of the ProTrail for around 200 bucks and about 21 oz.
