User Review: REI Quarter Dome UL
Design: three-season freestanding
Ease of Setup: very easy pole sleaves
Weight: 4 lbs
Price Paid: around $150
If you want a LUXURY single-person tent, buy this one. If you want a VERY cozy two-person tent, buy this one. I already owned the original Half Dome before this one and I was looking for a solo tent. From previous experience with the original Half Dome, I knew an REI tent would suit my soggy PNW adventures. I've used this tent through torrential downpours without a leak. It may be a pound or two more than ultralight solo tents, but the Quarter Dome is pure bliss.
I would not recommend this tent as a two-person tent unless you are both less than 5'6" 150 lb and are comfortable spooning each other. I'm 6' 200 lb and have and would only share this small space with my girlfriend. If you have money and are looking for real UL, you could do better, but you can't go wrong with this tent.
