Half Dome SL 2+ Tent: fast and easy setup!

So after getting the tent a month or two ago, I went into the backyard today to: 1) set it up to make sure it was in working order, 2) see how long it would take me, and 3) spray with permethrin.

That was the fastest and easiest set up of any tent I've owned. Including the rain fly, under five minutes. Kudos to the engineers!

We passed your kudos along to the Co-op Brands team who designed the tent. Thanks!

Also: I agree with @Philreedshikes that your lawn looks good, too!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

We just got this tent and camped 4 days in the Redwoods last week - I agree it is so easy to set up and very spacious for 2, we love it! May I ask why spray permethrin? What are the benefits? 

I sprayed it with Permethrin as additional insurance against ticks. Everything I've heard says that they're really bad this year. 

Got off trail without any ticks on me or in the tent, so I like to believe it helped  🙂
