REI's most popular 2-person backpacking tent, the Half Dome HC, provides a spacious interior and a simple, fast setup.

  • Hub/combi (HC) pole design combines variable-diameter poles and a center hub/pole attachment
  • Variable pole diameters cause poles to flex in such a way that creates greater interior space around shoulders and head
  • Hub and poles never need to be separated and hub/pole design adds stability at their connection point
  • Quick and easy setup; simply hook center of tent to hub, attach poles at tent corners and clip tent to poles
  • DAC Featherlite® poles offer a high strength-to-weight ratio and use extruded construction instead of glued inserts to reduce chance of breakage
  • 9-section shockcorded poles break down to fit easily in your backpack
  • 2 doors and vestibules for super-convenient entry/exit and separate storage areas
  • Insider floor seams are engineered to create a nice, clean taut pitch and maximize floor space; factory seam-taping ensure a waterproof seal
  • Large D-shaped doors with no-see-um mesh panels and no-see-um mesh front and rear windows allow cross-ventilation, preventing condensation
  • Tent stays organized with the attic (included) and interior pockets
  • Full-coverage, factory-sealed, UV-resistant, taut polyester rainfly protects the tent; two roof vents allow excellent airflow to prevent condensation
  • Nicely placed clear film window in rainfly is the perfect size to view the weather conditions from inside tent
  • Leak-proof rainfly construction ensures that water won't sneak through susceptible areas such as guy-out points and zippers in wet conditions
  • Attention to detail shows in the reflective guy points and adjustable cleat-lock tie-downs on the rainfly
  • Save weight by creating a minimalist shelter using rainfly, footprint (sold separately) and poles only
  • Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags, and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack
  • Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only
