The REI Co-op Kingdom 6

An excellent build the REI Kingdom is our top camping tent with a tonne of livable space for an excellent price of 2017. The hubbed pole design creates near-vertical walls, or so the peak height of 75 inches is enjoyed throughout the majority of the tent (traditional dome-style tents are only roomy in the very middle).

More, the tent has been designed with plenty of large doors on both ends, a centre divider, and interior storage. The Kingdom’s customizable rainfly is also one of our favourites in the marketplace. The rainfly completely covers one end of the tent, making a vestibule with decent space for other small outdoor items or shoes. The other end has an awning along with a door that is weatherproof, should the rain turn.

Verdict:

The tunnel shaped the REI Kingdom 6 comes with a rain fly which can be adjusted to various weather conditions but is best suited for cooler and wetter environments with occasional glimpses of sunshine. Due to  Super tall construction, it isn’t ideal for windy weather that is higher compared to other similar sized tents without being guy-lined out.
