User Review: REI Half Dome 2
Design: freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: VERY EASY
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $139
I have owned this tent for many years. I am truly convinced that REI is on top of its products in terms of features, weight, dependability, and longevity. This is STILL about the BEST overall and all around tent you can buy.
- Well built, great features, and dependable!
- A fantastic all around tent.
- Does not leak a drop of water after many years of use.
I own eight tents at my house. They range in price from $39 to $350. I will have to say that the REI Half Dome tent is the THE BEST tent I have ever come across, feature for feature, and best bang for the buck.
There is not enough room to talk about how great tent this tent is! For the price you pay, you get SOOO MUCH more than ANY other tents in the this price range. Reflective tape on the tent and zippers, aluminum poles, gear pockets, supplied gear attic, quality craftsmanship, good stakes AND tie down cord supplied, not to mention light weight.
Backpacker magazine picked this tent the best of tents a few years ago, and if you own one you will understand why. If you want a lightweight, bombproof tent that has a lot of high dollar tent features, then this is the one! I doubt I will ever find one that will match features, strength, quality workmanship, and price.
This tent is truly remarkable! You will not be disappointed if you are looking for an all around 3-season tent.
