User Review: REI Half Dome 2 Plus
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $140
Big enough for a couple people, plus their gear!
- Can stand up just the rainfly and footprint
- Easy setup
- None so far!
The only problem I have had with my tent so far was getting the rainfly to fit right. That being said, it was dark, about 15 degrees colder than I was packed for and I had never put the rainfly on it before that! Totally my fault!
After the sun came up and I was able to take my gloves off for a minute the problem was an east fix. I bought the footprint also, which definitely helped keep us dry as we set the tent up in the snow. One very cool feature is that you can just set up the rainfly, and the bugnet / floor part of the tent only clips to the poles. If you're in a storm that can be a tremendous thing to have on your side for a dry place to sleep!!!
The tent overall is very tight, with near verticle walls. It also has the best repair kit I have ever seen with a tent! As with any tent I would recommend getting the footpritnt and always bringing a sewing kit along.
Overall I love it though! Simple setup, extremely water tight, and very tight when it's set up.
