User Review: REI Quarter Dome UL
Design: three-season wedge dome
Ease of Setup: quick and simple pitching!
Weight: 4.6 lbs (packaged)
Price Paid: $209
I purchased this tent today while browsing at my local REI Co-op in Madison (Wisconsin) this afternoon. I was NOT tent shopping I might add.
I seen one of these Quarter Domes set up on the floor as a display model and immediately this tent caught my eye. Looked as it would be the perfect one-person tent, though it is rated a two-person model (maybe really tiny people perhaps!!!).
I was amazed how light this tent weighed! Enough height for me to sit up comfortably (40"). The feature I liked most about this tent it is east to enter/exit unlike my ALPS Mountaineering Taurus 1.0, which I literally need to get on the ground to crawl in. The tent features two doors and stake-out vestibules.
I repeat this is actually a ONE-PERSON tent--sorry REI to disagree with you on this one thing! :)
Can't wait to use it this coming spring down in the Missouri Ozarks!
