I purchased a one person, three season REI tent for my AT thru-hike. It had great reviews online and was a reasonable price. I had been very pleased with my tent, but unfortunately one night when I was setting it up, the junction where the poles fit in broke. So, I gave REI a call and with no problem at all they agreed to send me a brand new one and refund me for the cost of it once I sent my broken one back. They even covered the cost of shipping! If you're ever planning on thru-hiking definitely become an REI member, it is well worth it! Thanks a bundle, REI!
