REI Quarter Dome 3 UL
Design: Three season backpacking UL tent
Ease of Setup: Very easy, color coded poles
Weight: Just over 5 pounds which is very light.
Price Paid: $279
Light weight, very easy to set up. One would compare this to a REI Taj 3, but for a backpacking tent the weight is everything. Feels much more private when used without the rainfly compared to the new T3.

Attention to detail shows in the reflective guy points and zipper pulls, and adjustable REI Cleat Lock tie-downs on vestibules. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Based on our popular Quarter Dome 2, this tent optimizes the balance between low weight and livability. Color-coded rainfly corners allow easy orientation of rainfly on tent. Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack. Compact floorplan shaves weight while positioning the interior volume to maximize user comfort. DAC Featherlite NSL poles offer a very high strength-to-weight ratio, plus they slide in and out of pole sleeves very easily. Dead End pole sleeves and VELCRO rainfly/pole attachments allow rainfly to stay attached when stored for near instant rainproof setup next time. Footprint (sold separately) extends the life of your tent by protecting it from abrasive wear and tear. Insider floor seams are engineered to create a nice, clean taut pitch and maximize floor space; factory seam-taping ensures a waterproof seal. Leak-proof rainfly construction ensures that water won't sneak through susceptible areas such as guy-out points and zippers in wet conditions. Lightweight materials, combined with tough floor and pole sleeve materials, deliver a lighter tent without sacrificing durability. Lightweight nylon ripstop rainfly offers durability and weight savings; silicon treatment gives long-lasting weatherproofness. Low, wind-shedding, two-pole design features two doors and two vestibules for super-convenient entry/exit and ample separate storage areas. Rainfly rolls up and secures half-way open for extensive views to the outside; if the weather changes, it quickly and easily rolls down into place. Well-placed weatherproof roof vents, no-see-um mesh panels, and no-see-um mesh front and rear windows allow cross ventilation to prevent condensation.
