The REI Hoodoo 2 is a full-featured tent that optimizes convenience and comfort for 2—enjoy ample headroom, 2 doors and generous storage.

  • Boxlike frame creates vertical sidewalls for a spacious interior and generous headroom; Tension Truss architecture provides structural stability without adding weight
  • Side doors provide convenient access for each person, plus a private vestibule for ample storage capacity
  • Preassembled hub/pole sets, pole clips and color coding simplify setup; assemblies break down small for packability
  • Inside floor seams are engineered to create a taut pitch and maximize floor space; factory seam taping ensures a waterproof seal
  • UV-resistant polyester rainfly will not stretch when wet, ensuring a consistently taut pitch
  • Active climate control uses flow-through chimney ventilation to move air through the tent and reduce condensation; vents operate from the inside
  • No-wick construction ensures that water won't sneak through susceptible areas such as guy-out points, pole wraps and zippers in wet conditions
  • Abundant pockets keep your tent tidy
  • Attention to detail shows in the reflective guy points and zipper pulls, and adjustable REI Cleat Lock tie-downs on vestibules
  • Save weight and create a minimalist shelter using just the footprint (sold separately), rainfly and poles
  • 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

REI Hoodoo 2 Tent - '09 Special Buyis rated5.0out of5by3.
Rated5out of5byfromAn excellent tent!This is simply the best tent I have ever owned. Amazingly easy to set up, very roomy inside and vestibules are great. It is fairly light and absolutely weather proof, just a brilliant design! The only con I found is that if you set it up where the morning sun hits it, it can get very hot, very quick. You can avoid this by unzipping the net lining a little bit.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat modern tentI own several tents but when I saw this one on sale it seemed the perfect candidate to replace a 10 year old REI 2 person half dome. It definately is roomy and having vestibules either side is very useful. Put it up in the yard the first time to figure it all out. Was confused for a moment, then the light went off and it made sense. Now it takes just 2 or 3 minutes to put up. I like the fact you can put the fly up first if it's raining, then the tent once you have shelter. Makes a fine backpacking tent, but best carried on outside of backpack. Delighted with the tent, just wish the footprint was still available. Will probably construct something out of Tyvek instead.
