User Review: REI Hobitat 6
Ease of Setup: easy
We got a Hobitat 6 and used for three days. It's very roomy which is what we liked about it. However, it rained pretty hard the first night. There were a number of small leaks but we survived.
The design of the entrance is terrible since the tent sheds water right where the door is and when it's raining you will get soaked entering the tent. Water pooled in the top of the tent even though there is a sponge that is suppose to push the fly up far enough so you wouldn't have water collecting.
We returned the tent for a full refund and no problems to REI. We felt lucky that we had perfect weather to really test out the tent. The tent worked great when it wasn't raining but unless you plan on camping only where you get no rain or light rain I can't recommend this tent.
