Once upon a time I had a REI Alcove shelter along with the optional sides. I hike a lot in NH, and typically drive up the night before and car camp. Hike the next day and head home. The shelter was perfect in case of rainy weather as I could set it up, and then set up the tent under it if needed, avoiding pouring rain through the mesh of the tent. I could pop the tent entrance into one end and it provided a covered outdoor area as well. Unfortunately, I think someone stole it out of my garage (odd because I have much more expensive stuff on the same shelf) and now I find REI no longer produces the product. If anyone out there has one they don't use I would love to buy it!

If you haven’t sold your REI Alcove with windwalls I’d be interested in buying it. I live in Northern CA and am sure we could work out a way to pick up/ send the alcove.
I’m thinking REI should take notice that it is so desirable. Maybe bring out an updated version? “BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!!”
