User Review: REI Quarter Dome UL
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $50
This is an excellent 3-season, two-person lightweight tent. It is extremely easy to set up, and packs down small. Perfect for a couple or a roomy single person.
- Easy to use
- A little small for 2 people
The REI Quarter Dome UL is a great tent for the price. I've taken it on a couple of overnight trips, and had no problems whatsoever. Its total packweight with fly is just north of 4 lbs, which is pretty good for a complete 2-person tent.
It was extremely easy to set up, as it just has two poles. I would however mark which pole is top and which is bottom, so you don't get them confused.
Here it is set up on the right. It fits easily into my Deuter Act Lite 40+10, which isn't a huge bag. It packs up much easier if you take the poles out and pack them along side of your bag. then you can fold and roll the tent in fourth's instead of thirds.
I haven't had it out in heavy rains, but haven't had any problems with condensation at all. I would definitely recommend this tent to anyone.
I have updated to add a fifth star to this tent. I have absolutely loved this tent. Super easy to set up and take down, very durable. Took it out in some cold weather, and no condensation at all. My friend's Big Agnes however was soaked. Can't be happier with it.
