User Review: REI Hobitat 4
Design: three-season freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: instructions say 2 people but 1 person can manage
Price Paid: $200
I've spent a total of seven nights using this tent. Ventilation is good and usable space in the tent is essentially 100% as the walls are vertical and there is a tremendous amount of headroom. On my third day of camping thunderstorms started passing over at about 2 in the afternoon and did not let up till about 9 the next morning.
The tent stayed entirely dry except for two tiny pin holes located in opposite corners near the very bottom of the tent. Total amount of leakage was maybe a teaspoon or so at each site. REI has an excellent return policy but I applied a spot of seam sealer to each hole the next day and the "problem" was solved.
Overall I am extremely satisfied with this tent and look forward to getting many more years of use out of it.
