    REI Kingdom 4 Tent - 2012 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Livin' Large As a former backcountry camper, now spending more time in campgrounds, I wanted to get a tent I didn't have to crawl into. The Kingdom 4 with (optional) Connect Tech Garage makes me feel like the king of the dom. Smart REI design, solid materials and a fair price make this one a winner. PROS - Easy setup. The instructions call for two people. You can do this yourself. Just follow the pole insertion sequence in the instructions. The color coded straps on the fly help with that too. - Pockets, pockets, pockets. I counted 18, inside and out. - I got this for two people and it is spacious. I think with four it would be cozy. - The Connect Tech Garage is wonderful. The doors on either side can be opened diagonally, ½ way or all the way up. Now rain is not a big problem. Plenty of space under the garage for your gear too. I didn't have to wipe dew off all my stuff in the morning. - Plenty of ventilation and options depending on the weather. CONS �?? I really don't have anything bad to say about it. Maybe they could have given it to me for free? What I've changed/added - All the zipper pulls were orange. I swapped out some yellow cord for the pulls on the solid doors. Now I know at a glance which zipper I'm opening. - It comes with 8 stakes (6 tent, 2 rain fly). You will want at least 4 more for staking out the sides of the fly for better ventilation. - For the sides of the fly, instead of using the included guylines I use ¼" shock cord. It saves a few seconds each setup and is less fuss when packing up. (See attached photo.) - The garage comes with 4 stakes. One more for a guyline to the top keeps it taut. I used reflective cord for this since this is the one you are most likely to be tripping on�?� I know.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This tent far surpassed my expectations! A partner and I recently used the Kingdom 4 in four weeks of work camping while conducting field surveys in southern Nevada. In our second week a violent storm blew in, subjecting the tent to 1-2 hours of 35-40 MPH wind gusts, without incident. At times, the windward side of the tent was blown nearly flat, but the structure held without tearing or pole breaks. And we, and our gear, stayed completely dry through the night of heavy, accompanying rain. This is a pretty good tent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from YEAH! We bought and used this guy for the first time last weekend, everything was awesome thanks to our Kingdom 4. We camped at West Shore State Park at the Flathead Lake in Montana. Our site had a tent pad area, which was a squared off area with a good bed a wood chips on it, so I didn't feel so bad that I didn't splurge for the footprint yet. Anyhow, the Kingdom went up very easy, I set it up at home prior to use, and it went up solo in about 10 minutes. With 2 people it could be done in 5 or less. This tent style and shape reminds me of MSR's Backcountry Barn, which is what I originally wanted to have but i'm very happy with this alternative! It was waay less and IMO has come cooler tech,features, and accessories. Since there is a divider in the middle we rolled up one wall, so the interior was like a "U" shape, I had one half, my g/f had the other and our dog had the center...perfect, lol. With plenty of extra room for gear or whatever. The vestibule was cool too, at night we threw all of our fire wood under it, our camp chairs, and other misc stuff we wanted to leave outside. It did rain a bit during the night and there were no issues of any water leakage through the fly or the floor. Take down takes roughly the same time as it did to set it up, and it all goes in the backpack style bag perfectly and is all organized. Even room in there for the footprint in time...possibly the garage too if you rolled everythng up just right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent My Fiance and I spent a considerable amount of time researching our next tent and we kept coming back to this one. We think that Big Bird's review is pretty spot-on so we won't repeat what he said. Instead we'll add a few more observations: - First time out of the bag, took us 30 mins to set up. The directions were fairly useless but then again after setting it up once you really don't need them. - This is comfortable tent for 2 and "quite cozy" for 4. - The pole system was quite impressive: well designed and beefy. The minimal use of tubes that the poles had to go through and the maximum use of hooks made set up a breeze. - The mutliple options of adjusting the rain fly for visability and ventalation were quite nice! - All tie downs, tie backs, zippers and velcro attachments were well thought out and well placed. The only improvements we could think of: - space in the tent storage bag for the footprint and additional vesibule/garage. -The connecting/optional garage could be a tad bit taller. - A footprint for the garage would be nice. Besides a few added suggestions, this is a great tent that we area thoroughly pleased with!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent family-friendly tent Just finished a stay on Sea of Galilee with our two daughters (first time away from home), and the Kingdom 4 was a major factor in the success of the trip. Fantastic tent for a four person family outing, very comfortable with useful features, special mention goes to the visibility offered by the netting panels. Setup was easy and quick for one person, teardown ditto. Only issue is performance in windy conditions - this tent needs its rainfly to handle even a moderate wind. With the heat around 35°C the rainfly was not an option so had to tie a guyline directly to the hub of the wind-ward pole (the short piece of the hub kept escaping its sleeve). Once tied-off the tent held well in gusts that toppled surrounding ones. All-in-all a superb family tent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect car camping/family tent I did a lot of research before I bought this tent. Once my wife and I had kids, I knew we needed something that would be comfortable and spacious but still of high quality and able to withstand wind/rain, etc. We've had our son sleep in this tent since he was 7 months old, and it's been perfect. Setup is easy and quick. One of the best features of this tent is how high it is. We can both pretty much stand up inside to change, etc. It's very family friendly and a space where you can do more than just sleep. Durability is strong, and I've had it out in a lot of wind and rain without any leaking or movement whatsoever. The overall package is huge if you're used to backpacking tents. It's pretty much a large daypack in it's bag. But for car camping I'm happy to make this sacrifice. The only downside I would give is that the room divider inside doesn't have elastic stowaway clips towards the bottom, so when the material is strapped to the inside walls, the material hangs out a bunch near the floor- this is annoying if your sleeping bag is put close to the wall since you have fabric hanging on top of you around your waist. Love this tent!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like a hotel room but not. LOVE this tent. My boyfriend is 6'0" and it was really nice for him to stand up in a tent! We bought the "garage" and loved having it like a front porch. Our buddy had tent envy. It looks bigger than it is. Depending on how much space you want, it might not be enough for four. Basically, if you're used to hotels it's cramped. If you're used to camping it's freaking awesome. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tent Great in rain and wind. With a queen size air mattress in this tent the room divider is just in the way. Other than that this tent works really well. It is lighter than most tents this size and ventilates very well with the fly in place. During a good rainfall on the Oregon coast it kept us very dry and comfortable.
