User Review: REI Base Camp 4
Design: three-season, freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: Very easy
Price Paid: $300
Just completed a 20 day, 6,000 mi. camping tour and encountered all weather conditions other than snow from 60 mph winds in the Badlands to thunderstorms and heavy rain in the Rockies. The REI Base Camp 4 performed flawlessly.
Barely vibrated in the wind (using guylines), no leaks in the rain, plenty of ventilation in the hot, humid Great Plaines. Tall enough at 5 ft. to set up a camp chair inside and read during the rainstorms. Very easy set-up. Everything fits easily in the bag provided. I really like this tent.
I would suggest, though, that the tent will really only accomodate two adults unless you are all very close friends. It will only accomodate two twin-size air mattresses.
