FS: ***SOLD*** REI Quarter Dome T2 on 10/05/2013 01:02:06 MDT Print View

This tent is SOLD. Thanks!

I'm selling my very lightly used REI Quarter Dome T2 two-person free-standing tent for $180. I'll cover shipping to anywhere in the U.S. Feel free to PM me or post below if interested. Thanks!

The tent is essentially in new condition. It's been fastidiously cared for since I bought it in 2010. This tent has probably seen less than 15 nights of use in total. I originally bought it with the intention to use it winter camping (which it can handle), but I have ended up doing very little backpacking in the wintertime, so I figure I might as well sell the tent to somebody who will give it more use than I do.

It really is a very nice tent, definitely not ultralight, but for what it is (a very spacious, double wall tent that can handle snow as well as heat), it's great. The version I'm selling is actually lighter than later versions of the tent (it has more mesh), and I actually think it is the best model of the Quarter Dome T2 that REI ever made. On a technical note, the tent that I'm selling is actually branded as the "Quarter Dome TT UL2" tent. The name was later changed to simply "Quarter Dome T2" from what I understand, and I'm using this name for the post title because it's what everyone is more familiar with.

Here is a breakdown of the weights of each of the most essential items included with the tent (as measured to 0.05 ounce accuracy on my scale):

20.90oz - Tent body
25.05oz - Tent fly
16.01oz - Tent poles (in included tent pole stuff sack)

And just to give you a ballpark idea, my actual carried trail weight of this tent (including essential guylines, included stakes, stuff sacks, and pole repair sleeve) is: 4lb 3.5oz (or 67.05oz)

Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking...

You get everything that originally came with the tent; here are all the components laid out (all of this stuff weighs 4lb 6.0oz):

Side view of the tent. Notice the steep pitch of the sidewalls which leads to lots of usable interior space:

The only modification I've made to the tent is to remove the unnecessary label that was stitched to the outside of the tent's stuff sack. There is no functional significance of this modification except that it makes the stuff sack a gram or two lighter and also makes it look a bit better, IMO. Here is a picture where you can just barely see the very small sewing holes in the stuff sack where the label was once attached:

Here is the actual label itself that I removed. It's just a piece of tyvek with printing on it. I was going to use it to make a small tyvek stuff sack but I'm more than happy to include it with the tent:
