Over the past several years, REI has tweaked and tinkered with the design of the Quarter Dome 2 to improve upon an already bomber product. REI put a lot of thought into redesigning the Quarter Dome line to improve its weight and comfort. This contender now weighs about 1.3 pounds less than the T2 (the original version) and has a larger interior. We love its almost vertical sidewalls that give it lots of headroom, allow for sitting up without crouching, and its great ceiling stash pockets. It is in the middle of the pack for its weight as well as its price.
Since our last hands-on review, REI redesigned the Quarter Dome 2! The latest model features updated pole architecture, which results in increased roominess, and 60% larger vestibules. To learn more about these changes, among a few others, scroll down.
