Considering a FAVORABLE consensus of youtube videos on this tent, why has REI suddenly stopped manufacturing it?
Thanks for reaching out!
It is great to hear that there is a lot of continued enthusiasm for the REI Co-op Quarter Dome SL line of tents. We have not stopped manufacturing the Quarter Dome SL, we simply ran out of supply due to more-than-anticipated demand last year. We are happy to let you know that we are expecting to be back in stock sometime near the middle of February, depending on shipping and processing.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
We are expecting additional inventory of this tent around the start of December, though this date could shift due to variables in the shipping and processing timelines. We suggest checking the website periodically around then to best keep track of availability.
Let us know if you have any additional questions and we'll be happy to help!
