This is my favorite summer and warm weather tent.
REI makes two versions of the tent, the Half Dome and the Half Dome Plus. The difference is the plus version is a little bigger. If you are like me and over 6 foot tall, then go for the plus.
This is a tree season, two person tent which with the fly and ground sheet weighs just over six pounds. So not a great ultralight but on the bike its perfect. The stuff sack that comes with the tent is sturdy and can handle skidding down the road at 3o mph without damage (don’t ask).
The ventilation is great and the air flow, even with the fly on, is noticeable.
The interior is roomy and when its just me I have plenty of room for all my gear inside the tent. The vestibules are nice and theres plenty of room for boots and helmets.
So, definatly a good buy, especially at one of REI’s sales where you can get this 20% off.
Large and roomy.
Heavy for backpacking.
