The REI Kingdom 6 used to be unquestionably our Editors' Choice Award winner. However, in 2018 it got some tough competition, The North Face Wawona 6. The Kingdom is still the most comfortable, but the Wawona is easier to set up, is more weather resistant and comes with a built-in vestibule at a better price. The Kingdom still scores on top because it's tall and spacious, with two rooms that allow you to choose between more ventilation or more privacy (without the fly). It was relatively stable in high winds and performed well in the rain, so long as the back door with the awning is not exposed to driving rain. It is mid-priced and well-made, making it an excellent choice for a lasting tent that won't break the bank.
REI also makes this spacious tent even bigger with the REI Kingdom 8 Tent. This monster tent is roomy enough for the entire village to come camp out with you. It's also an older Editors' Choice winner.
