    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.

    • Multiple storage options include corner pockets, roof pockets and hang loops; additional stuff pockets hold doors out of the way and do double duty as storage

    REI Half Dome 4 Tentis rated4.5517out of5by29.
    Rated4out of5byfromFamily Sized backpacking tentBeen outfitting our family with backpacking gear after looking at several tents & keeping all thing that backpacking require in mind, IE weight & size I decided to give this one a try. Recently took it out on a weekend trip & found it was very easy to set up , as far as space like most backpacking gear it is Small & I think it will fit our family of four in it 2 adults & 2 Kids but definitely a snug fit. Take down was easy & this is the first tent I have ever had that I was able to roll up & put back in the bag on the first try !

    Rated5out of5byfromFun and Functional TentVery satisfied with this tent. I have used a number of tents from REI over the past 10 years. This tent was much lighter than the others; easy to set up; and functioned well. I camp on the edge of the Pacific ocean on Kaua'i. Winds and rain can be challenging. This tent handled the rain exceptionally well. I liked the way the rain fly can be pulled away from the tent on the sides, which allowed excellent ventilation. I didn't get any condensation inside or under my mattress. The only CON to this tent is that it's a bit small for two twin air beds (yes, a bit spoiled, right). I'm considering transitioning to a smaller sleeping pad so I can continue using this tent. Had a blast!!! BIG FUN in this tent. Thanks REI

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat TentI bought this for family car camping trips. Our first trip was a success. Other families had massive 2-room tents, but we had the REI tent. Our tent stayed dry and had plenty of room for my wife, my daughter, and myself. We were even able to put a massive air mattress inside. Final story: We stayed dry in the rain, we stayed warm (maybe too warm), and we had no issues setting it up. A great buy for anyone looking to car camp.

    Rated5out of5byfromBest tent to date!I had a large tent and wanted to downsize a bit without sacrificing comfort when camping. This is a great tent. I've owned several tents through the years but none was as easy to set up as this one. I basically use this tent for weather with temperatures between 35F-85F. I love the ample space it offers giving me room to store some of my items inside the tent. Although it's labeled as a 4-person tent, I'm using it for one or two people only.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat value and all around backpacking tThis is a great price point for a 4 person backpacking tent. It's less than 8 pounds, so it's a very manageable weight, especially if divided between 4 people. The two vestibules are handy and there are multiple pockets inside where you can stash small gear. I would recommend using some guy lines to increase stability and strength if you're going to be in adverse weather or wind.

    Rated5out of5byfromgreat tent for the moneyThis is a great tent for the price. I've only used it once in the field, but it held up very well to 30 mph winds. It's really easy to setup and has a good amount of storage. Having two doors and two vestibules is really nice. The zippers work quite easily. Overall, I'm really happy with it. I rated it 5 stars partly because of the price even though I do have a few minor complaints. It's a bit heavy for a backpacking tent, but it would cost twice as much or more to get a tent a couple pounds lighter. As with basically all tent size ratings, it's hard to imagine, in this case, 4 people in this tent. People on the edges would up against the walls. Three of us fit pretty comfortable with room for some of our gear that we didn't want to leave outside. As others have mentioned, REI was a bit stingy with the stakes. If you're looking for a high quality tent rated for 4 and not concerned with ultralightness, then this is a great find.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood, but not greatI am a geologist, and I basically live in my tent when on the job. I got this tent as an upgrade from my two person tent. I was excited to have more space to stretch out, however the tent felt a little flimsy with all the walls being mesh, and I wasn't to impressed with the pole layout. However, the tent did survive the rain, snow, and all the wind that we had on that trip, though all the mesh did make cold (even for a tent). I ended up returning this tent and getting something sturdier. However if you are just a casual summer camper, then this tent would be great.
