Great all-around shelter, but a bit heavy and stuffy…
21 May 2012
Summary: Summary Great all-around shelter, but a bit heavy and stuffy for some uses. Pros Large / roomy interior Privacy door Ease of use Sand pockets when stakes won't do Sturdy in wind Cons Heavy and bulky if carrying a long distance Hot interior in strong (beach) sun We bought this for our family beach vacation with our 18 mos old who had outgrown his peapod. Our favorite beach is a good 2 mi hike.
Summary: I took this to the Grand Canyon and it poured rain the second day and I was very dry inside, very nice tent and setup is easy that one person can get the job done. The sleeping space isn't that spacious for two, unless you don't mined being close to your partner.I'm 5'8" 237LBS athletic build just a good 5" away from my partner's sleeping bag and no room for gear inside. This tent is really good for 1 person and gear inside or pet.
Summary: it is totally a tent. it's a little small but that is why i bought it. i'm a little small and so it really is perfect for me. i camp alone except when i camp with somebody else. most of the time my camping partner is smaller than me but by the time that he is big enough to be a bother, he'll have a tent of his own. still, it's a pretty good tent.
Summary: I just got this last week and used it this weekend in Sulphur, OK. It downpoured on me the 2nd night and I did not use a foot print/tarp underneath. I stayed dry as a bone as did all the tent walls (I had the rain fly on and staked out as you are supposed to). I tried to take a nap at 3p in ~75F with a breeze, but it was too hot in the tent with the fly tied open. Perhaps if I removed the fly, it would have been cooler and bearable.
Summary: Just bought this tent and its awsome, it took me all of 5 mins to setup the first time.It would fit 2 people however I think it makes for a better 1 person tent, and allows one person to be very comfortable and store some gear.Altogether im very pleased with this tent and would recommend it to anyone, Kelty's quality is always awsome and this product is no exception.
Summary: good tent. free standing is nice. this tent has tons of height! can't stand in it, but still a lot of height. actual pack weight (with rainfly) is 4 and 11, not 4 and 2 as advertised on amazon. has 2 pockets at the "foot" of the tent for extra gear, that i think are rather clever. i wish i could add a photo on amazon, but evidently there isn't a link for that. great bargain!
Summary: Love this little tent. The colors are great and the tent is very easy to set up. The only issue I have, is that the door is right where your head would be. And if nature calls in the middle of the night, you will most likely wake the person sleeping next to you. Other than that, it's a neat tent and great for one person. Two people will be fine and anyway, you don't want to carry a bulky tent. Take a garbage bag in case it rains for any extra gear. Buy a footprint.
Summary: This is the best backpacking tent I have ever owned. It is an awesome tent. This is a premium tent at a bargain price. First use was in a terrible rain storm. It was raining when we hit the trail, raining when we set up camp, raining when we went to bed, and raining when we got up. The tent did not leak a drop. I did not seal the seams (I know I should) and I did not guy out the fly but the ventilation was fine. Very little condensation with me and my son in it.
Summary: I bought this tent to take backpacking and it has worked out just as I wanted. If you are someone not sure whether to buy a 1-person or 2-person tent this is a great compromise. Yes, there is enough room for 2, but for me and my gear it is perfect. The vestibule is a decent size, and I "could" keep my pack out there, but its nice having everything right next to you inside.
