Rated 5 out of 5 by from Withstood a Wisconsin thunderstorm! This tent took (maybe) 10 minutes to set up by myself. Frustration-free with the color-coding. On its first use it had the challenge of standing up against a notorious Wisconsin thunderstorm-- hail, pouring rain, thunder, lightning, and 30 mph winds. It not only kept me warm and dry, but felt sturdy against the wind. I can't recommend this tent any higher! It's lightweight(not as lightweight as some others, but it's sturdiness and quality is worth every extra ounce to me) but can hold up against some inclement weather. The inside has some mesh pockets hanging from the ceiling that are durable and convenient. Take-down took about 10 minutes as well. Easy to use, and durable. I have a feeling this tent will last me for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My home away from home I got this tent as a gift to myself when I became a member. I love it. Years later it is still my favorite and I see no reason to look for another. It is a bit on the heavier side but for the price and comfort it is well worth it. My mom, myself and my dog all fit in here (it was cozy!) and I have yet to have an adventure it has not proved itself on. The color coding is a life saver when setting up in the dark with a mostly dead flashlight. And I have even disassembled and packed the tent away while still inside the rain fly to keep the tent from being soaked during a Florida monsoon. About 3 and a half years in and rather than look for another, im going to rewaterproof it and head back out into the mountains. Maybe I have tent love, but a few times I have found that id rather camp out in this tent on my friends lawn than sleep inside (did that for two weeks last summer, no regrets). This tent has made it through insane mountain storms, back country in the west, coastal sun, my living room, high desert, ticks raining from the trees, and even a few winter camping trips in the snow. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tent! The REI Co-op Passage 2 tent is very well designed. I first set it up at home, and was immediately impressed that I could pitch on my own in about 3 minutes. It has color-coded tabs to match up the tent, footprint, and rain fly. There are also grooves in the plastic pieces at the ends of the poles that help them stay in place. And, clips make it easy to attach the rain fly. We are both tall, so I also measured the inside to be sure we would fit. For reference, the tape measure in the photo is set at 6’5” (the yellow part). We then loaded up our packs and headed up to the White Mountains (New Hampshire) to test out our new tent. Once we are all set up and settled inside, we found that we fit inside quite comfortably. We both took advantage of the handy pockets on the side walls of the tent. We also used the pockets in the roof of the tent and the loop to hang our small lantern. Another nice feature is that the doors open from either side—making it easy to reach in and access items at the head or foot without letting bugs in. I highly recommend this tent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from weather test I purchased the Passage 2 as my first backpacking tent. I thought it would be a great asset for kayak camping as well. Recently we were predicted to get about 8 inches of rain in about 4 days with some storms being strong at times. I thought it would be a great opportunity to really test out the tent. For four days the rain did not stop. Some storms reached 50 mph winds. The tent stood strong. I noticed about 1 tbs of water in the lower corner of the tent. I was able to soak it up with a washcloth. I didn't see any evidence of how it came to be. I am not disappointed, 8 inches of rain is a lot of water. These were the absolute worst conditions I would probably camp in and only had to worry about 1 spoon full of water. No tent is 100% water proof. I did not treat the material with any water proofing silicon. It may have made the difference in 1 tbs of water and none at all. I will be able to camp with confidence sleeping in this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent budget-friendly tent Purchased the tent after doing extensive research on backpacking tents for a bike-packing trip. The Passage 2 came up consistently as a budget-friendly, relatively lightweight (less than 5lbs) option. Color-coded tabs means you have the tent pitched in less time - important when you get to your campsite and it's raining despite all forecasts. The walls aren't vertical but it still feels spacious inside - space for you and all your gear on solo trips; space for you and your plus one and some of your gear for duo trips. The mesh pockets on the side won't hold much but there is a mesh "shelf" at the top that is handy for a headlamp - or use the small fabric loop to hang a small light. I particularly like the two doors and vestibules - each person has the space they need. I have not noticed any leakage during rain. The tent is a breeze to pack up and be on your way quickly. Definitely recommend this tent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING tent. Even better price I bought this tent in December when it was 79$, and god was it a good decision. For one, I managed to plop it down over a sharp rock one time, Somehow I stabbed into my muscle on my knee, but had NO holes anywhere in the lining. How that works still confuses me to this day. I've had it on mountaintops, waterfalls, snow banks, and in between, and this little guy does the trick. While I normally do car camping, it's worth the extra weight when backpacking. This tent is made of high quality poles, and takes MINUTES to set up. You can tell the people that made this tent go camping, because little things like color coding the rain fly, and tent corner, adding extra hooks, and guy line loops, really show through, and make using this an enjoyable experience. There are many pockets, a mesh stuff hammock, and the mesh is really high quality. There are two entrances, so you and your partner can get out easy. I normally backpack/camp alone, but this is incredibly roomy, and would be more than big enough for two people. I can also sit up fully (5'5" woman) , and that's important, because I have pretty severe claustrophobia in bivy sacs or smaller tents This weekend, I was on the top of a very high hill. The wind was so bad, people with cheap tents were having the poles snap, but this little guy not only kept me insulated, but stood through the night with a pretty shoddy stake job. (I was pretty much on solid rock. I can NOT recommend this tent enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty but not heavy duty price. This is a reflection of the older Half Dome 2 HC. I used this tent as a wilderness guide in Utah. in the winter I used the whole thing but during the warmer months used only the footprint and rain fly. With heavy heavy use (living in it for at least 6 months or more) it lasted about a year. It eventually succumbed to sun wear and I had to buy a new one. Best tent I have owed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid Addition to Backpacking Gear I used the REI Passage 2 tent on two separate backpacking trips. It wasn't too heavy but it is definitely not on the ultra-lightweight backpacking side of tents. The bathtub bottom made it such that even in the event of a storm, there is no worry about water seeping into the tent, the material felt durable as well. I liked the multitude of pockets within the tent and the latern latch/hook was a nice addition. I really like that the vent stands on the rain-fly were made of metal which provide for a sturdy, durable ventilation system; i have another backpacking tent where the vent stand is made of plastic and it has already started to bend. However, i wasn't a huge fan of the two-pole design. Although it was incredibly easy setting up the tent by myself, the two pole design was less stable and the tent hook would let one of the poles fall. In all, it is a very good intro backpacking tent with a good price point, i would recommend it to a friend.
