Lightweight, weather worthy and strong for 3-season use, the REI Half Dome 2 Plus backpacking tent offers generous headroom, storage and easy access for 2.

  • Features

    • 2 side doors and 2 vestibules offer easy access and generous storage; 4 vents ensure the tent stays well ventilated
    • Plus sizing provides more room with an extended floor plan; it's 10 in. longer and 4 in. wider than the standard REI Half Dome 2
    • Rectangular floor plan optimizes usable space and allows comfortable sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder or head-to-toe
    • Color-coded poles and pole clips ensure an easy setup
    • Advanced frame design combines DAC® Pressfit poles with a unique dual-hub architecture to provide area-wide headroom with nearly vertical side and end walls
    • Exclusive Tension Truss architecture leverages bound seams to provide low-weight structural stability and to increase interior volume
    • 4 adjustable, high-level ceiling vents mitigate condensation by drawing cool air under the fly and exhausting warm, moist air
    • Hybrid floor combines sealed seams and bathtub curves to create a waterproof floor that stays taut for easy door zipper operation and to maximize volume at end walls
    • Multiple storage options include corner pockets, roof pockets and hang loops; additional pockets do double duty as gear storage and stash spots for the doors
    • Shape and position of tent door zippers allow for smooth, 1-hand operation; vestibule zipper can be opened more or less to fine tune weather protection and ventilation
    • Polyester rainfly holds a consistently taut pitch, is durable and resists UV degradation
    • No-wick welded construction ensures that moisture won't sneak through susceptible areas, such as guy-out points, pole wraps and zippers
    • REI Half Dome 2 Plus Tent comes with guylines with tighteners, stakes and pole repair tube; tapered, compression stuff sack, pole- and stake bags
    • Save weight and create a minimalist shelter by using just the rainfly, footprint (sold separately), poles and stakes
