REI Passage 2 Tent
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $80 used
Sturdy tent for a good price. Great for camping and backpacking. Warm on cold nights (with rainfly) and cool on hot nights (without rainfly).
- Long, spacious
- Easy to set up
- Heavy (if carrying solo)
Great tent! Sturdy, free standing design is easy to move around without having to dismantle it. Great for 2 people or 1 person with gear inside (which isn't necessary due to the large vestibules provided by the rainfly). Inside has small netting storage pouches as well as a gear loft.
I used this tent on a snow camping trip and did not even know it had snowed until I got out of the tent, thanks to the excellent rainfly. On summer nights, without the rainfly, you get a great view of the stars. Long enough for tall people (I'm 6'6") and warm enough for cold nights.
Best used for car camping and backpacking, although it is a little bit heavy to carry on your own.
All in all, a solid tent that I recommend to all of my friends.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The REI Passage 2 tent features a classic dome shape and offers a great value. With its low weight and simple setup, this backpacking tent optimizes livability for 2 people. 2 side doors, each with their own vestibule, provide easy access without the need to crawl over your tentmate; dual storage space is a real plus. Fully adjustable, ceiling-level vents mitigate condensation by drawing cool air under the fly from the lower perimeter and exhausting warm, moist air. Rectangular floor plan with end-to-end symmetry makes it easy to arrange sleeping bags and gear and provides organizational efficiency and comfort. Equal-length aluminum poles, color coding and pole clips facilitate a quick and easy setup. Insider floor provides the waterproofness of a bathtub floor and the taut pitch of a cut-in floor; tautness improves door-zipper operation and maximizes volume at end walls. Seam-sealed polyester fly and floor ensure a waterproof, durable and sag-free shelter. Multiple interior storage options are provided by various combinations of mesh side pockets and hang loops located throughout the tent. Save weight and create a minimalist shelter by using just the rainfly, footprint (sold separately), poles and stakes. Includes a compression stuff sack, 6 stakes and 3 guylines with tighteners.
