We have an REI half dome 2 plus tent, but during our last trip it rained quite a bit. While this tent has two vestibules, they are low and were mostly filled with gear, so that when we unzipped to get out, our stuff got wet. It would have been nice to have an area where you could take a minute to get it together before/after going out in the rain.
Problem is, there is no porch or gear shed attachment for this model. I've seen ones for Nemo, MSR, Marmot, etc. but am unsure how specific the designs are for those models. Has anyone had any luck with this? I've considered using a tarp, too, but when the rain is blowing sideways this isn't a great solution. Suggestions appreciated, thanks!
