User Review: REI Half Dome 2
Price Paid: N/A
We got this tent for our wedding by registering through REI. We took it on the Wild Azalea Trail in Louisiana a couple of times and it is bombproof!
On the first trip, we really appreciated the light weight and good ventilation because it was muggy and warm. On the second trip, it rained for 14 hours straight, starting at 8 p.m., I mean TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR. Not a drop inside! We couldn't believe it, the rain was coming down like someone had aimed a firehose at the tent. We slogged out the next morning due to flooding of all but the highest points of the trail, but it had nothing to do with the tent. It was amazing, and we plan to use it for many more years.
As far as floor space, we consider it adequate. I am 5 feet tall and 110 pounds, my husband is 6'1" and 225, and we could have pulled our packs inside if we wanted, although it would've then been cramped. It sets up in about 5 minutes flat if you're taking your time, and is very easy to set up. Stop searching! Get the tent!!
