Initial Thoughts on the REI Co-op Half Dome SL 2+ Tent

This is an incredible, spacious, and multifunctional tent. It’s surprisingly lightweight as a 2+ person tent, and I love how many interior pockets and clips there are. The Half Dome is ideal for all sorts of camping and backpacking trips.

Pros Cons
  • Super easy and quick to put up. The pole frame is one piece, so the total time to set up this tent is about a minute.
  • The single pole setup is a little less graceful to take down and pack up than other designs. I found it difficult to get the poles neatly together after takedown.
  • Spacious for two people and has plenty of pockets and storage.
