  • Plus sizing provides more room via an extended floor plan; it's 10 in. longer and 4 in. wider than the standard REI Half Dome 2
  • Fly design allows sides and ends to be rolled up to maximize views and airflow; everything also rolls down quickly if a storm blows in
  • Curved zipper tracks on fly operate smoothly; fly's 4 ceiling vents provide airflow to prevent condensation buildup
  • Hubbed pole assembly simplifies setup
  • REI-exclusive tension-truss architecture creates stable vertical sidewalls for generous space and plenty of headroom
