REI Hobitat 4 Tent – Awesome cabin style tent.
The REI Hobitat 4 Tent is an awesome four person tent that gives you a ton of room inside, without taking up a lot of room outside. The unique design of the REI Hobitat 4 Tent offers plenty in the way of interior head space and livability for you and three of your bunk mates. With so much room, the REI Hobitat 4 Tent is perfect for car campers or just about any three season camper.

The REI Hobitat 4 Tent uses a rectangular floor plan that offers plenty of room in the way of personal space. but the REI Hobitat 4 Tent really shines when you stand up in it. Its high walls and dome top allow just about any camper to stand up comfortably. If you need some extra room for your gear, you can purchase the additional vestibule, which will give you all the room you could possibly need.

Unlike many other large four person tents, the REI Hobitat 4 Tent is easy and intuitive to set up. The tent is built by using four equal length poles, which means no more guessing which pole goes where. To setup the REI Hobitat 4 Tent, all you have to do is slide the poles into the sleeves, clip them into place, and thats it. Easy as 1,2,3!
