User Review: REI Half Dome 2 Plus
Design: Three season backpacking
Ease of Setup: Super easy
Price Paid: $95
I bought this tent (made in 2002) in the 2007 camping season and I'm using it again this year (2008). I bought this tent used and it was a great choice. It is the same as REI's current Halfdome 2 HC, but you can get these on eBay or garage sales for much less.
I've been backpacking for over 15 years and this is one of the best (and cheapest) tents I've ever had. Lots of room inside, but still has a pack weight that is acceptable. Lots of ventilation and big vestibules and best of all...2 doors...a MUST for me.
If you can find one of these used, grab it! REI tents last for decades. If you can't get one of these used, I would recommend looking at a new Half Dome 2 HC (the same just more $$$).
