Pick a Size: REI Base Camp 4 & 6 Tents 40% Off

The well-reviewed REI Co-op Base Camp Tent is now on sale in two sizes: four- and six-person footprints.

The dome-style shelter gets claps for its roominess and ruggedness. You can’t go wrong with this tent deal at 40 percent off — just in time for the holidays.

The only question is, who will you buy it for? Your favorite car-camping family, or you and your five favorite buddies?


The four-person, two-door Base Camp weighs in at 16 pounds 14 ounces. The six-person tent model is 20 pounds 10 ounces. It has color-coded poles for easy setup, two roof vents for thorough ventilation, and a big vestibule for all of your gear.

While the weight sounds hefty, it’s not much for a shelter meant to be thrown into your car. And for all that, these REI prices are super light: $233 (four-person) and $269 (six-person).
