    REI Members get back an estimated $ 42.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    REI Base Camp 6 Tentis rated5.0out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromBase Camp 6 RocksColor coding of poles, sleeves and instruction clarity is superb. Tent was very sturdy in medium winds (10-20mph) along with different stakes for soft ground (Joshua Tree) and three additional ties to trees and a rock. Breathes well Strong, durable flooring, raised entry (kept small critters out).

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat tentPurchased around 2002, this has been our go-to tent for camping trips for our family of 4, averaging 15-20 camping nights a year. Aside from a couple of minor leaks that have developed when it pours, it's still going strong. The tent is spacious and comfortable for four people with duffel bags/suitcases inside. The vestibule is spacious enough to have a porta-potti completely out of the way and room for shoes, etc. Although we never seam-sealed the tent, it is durable and dry. Case-in-point we survived near-tornado weather that forced many in our cub-scout pack running for their cars soaking wet. Our kids never woke up till morning, happy and dry. So after probably 150+ camping nights, this tent is still going strong. Will purchase another when it's time.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Tent for wind and rainPurchased this tent last summer for our family of four. I'm 6'5" and I absolutely love the head room. The tent has a large front vestibule that makes it great for camping in no so nice weather as you can lay a tarp inside the vestibule and keep the tent dry with a welcome mat. We had terrible storms all night and the tent didn't move at all and compared to my boat with a high end cover that required a lot of pumping out from the bilge pump that morning the tent was rock solid and bone dry. Like a home away from home! For back packing I have the Fly Creel UL4, but use this for everything else.
