Summary: I have used this tent for several years and have carried it many miles and slept in it in many different conditions. This is the best tent i have ever used and am convinced that for the money it is the best buy out there, can't really imagine the more expensive tents being much better. i do solo in it and am a big guy but have never felt cramped.

Summary: I love this tent. I have used it for years up in Montana and down in Oregon. It makes for a pretty intimate time for two folks though. I've woke up to everything being wet outside and not a a drop of dew on the inside! I could set it up in minutes and it packed down pretty well. The rain fly makes a great little place to store gear. It gets pretty warm in the sun-but if you take the fly off it will cool down.

Summary: Lightweight, easy to set up, nice vestibule area, and it keeps out the elements beautifully! I bought this tent when I was living in the Southeast Alaskan rain forest, and could not be more pleased with this purchase. I used this on many solo and duo trips, and never had a problem staying dry in it. A definite YES to anyone looking for a quality 2 person tent.

Summary: I have an REI 6 man dome for car camping with the fam. But in October I'm going camping with Woodbadge and on the second 3-day weekend I have to bring a tent for a backwoods overnight. My Pack's den chief, who if he were any MORE of a Boy Scout would wear a cape and change in a phone booth, was very specific that I should get the Kelty Teton 2. On his recommendation, I've purchased it.

Summary: I'm convinced you can't get a better backpacking tent for the money. This tent is just over 4 lbs, packs small, the easiest tent I've ever set up, and has a vestibule (a must for me). I have a Sierra Designs Stretch Dome, which cost me 4X as much, but I take this tent on my trips probably 75% of the time. You just can't beat it! I agree with some feedback that the vestibule is small.

Summary: Pros: lightweight, ease of set-up, inexpensive Cons: small vestibule, rain fly does not fully cover tent, not the best ventilation I have had the tent for around a year and a half, and have used it a wide range of conditions. I initially purchased it as a solo tent because I wanted more room than a bivy sack can provide, but my girlfriend has started camping with me a lot. As for the size of the tent (like almost all 2 person tents), it is perfect for 1 person plus gear.

Summary: I love this tent. This is my first tent and I have no regrets. This tent is awesome. It is so easy to set up. The tent has color-coded clips for the aluminum poles and the clips on the fly, so it would be very hard to mess it up. By myself I could always set this tent up before my two friends could finish setting up the tent they were sharing. I used this tent in winter conditions, which it is not intended for, and the tent did collect moisture on the walls.

Summary: Great Value. Went on a 3-day 2-night trip with the Teton in varying weather conditions. Seams held tight through storms (no leakage) and very little wind noise from the fly. Very light weight and packs small without the poles. I used it as a solo and kept my gear inside. Only downfall is the small vestibule.

Summary: Okay, I got this tent as a back-up for friends that want to come along. It has seen way more use than my $400 tent. Very easy idiot-proof set-up. Not too heavy and interesting pole intersections. My only complaints are ventilation could be a bit better and the rainfly is not full coverage, and small vestibules. Overall this is one heck of a bargain at $100. great for beginners or as a back-up. Not suited for really hot conditions though.
