  • Summary: Just used this tent 5 days on the Arkansas River. Had wind, rain, heat and cold in the Colo mountains. Sets up fast n nice, plastic fly poles broke day one had to make do. Anyone who has this tent can get nice well made poles for the fly at tent pole tec .com $26. With the large tent poles included and the new poles this tent should be bullet proof and perfect.
  • Pros: Light, Easy, Dry, Warm, Simple Design, Well Made
  • Cons: A bit small best for 3, Fly poles are junk

  • Excerpt: I'll keep this short and sweet since the other reviews covered everything. Pros: -Very very easy to set up -held up in 40 mile per hour winds and rain, no leaks and I didn't coat it with anything Cons: -it's pretty small I actually didn't even notice the zippper/rain fly issue mentioned. Maybe I'm too aloof lol. I'll definitely pay attention next time it's set up. I'd recommend it for 1-2 people.

  • Excerpt: I used this tent for the first time this week camping at a state park in northwestern Maine. The tent is just roomy enough for a queen size air mattress and some gear. It sets up easily with 2 lightweight aluminum poles and 2 fiberglass brow ridge poles. The fly went on easily and has plenty of guy-out points if wind is a concern -- a good thing as this is a high-profile tent I at 5'6" can nearly stand in. It is a pleasing dark blue with light gray.

  • Excerpt: I purchased my Kelty Trail Dome 4 last year and have camped and backpacked with it in a variety of weather conditions and temps. The tent is roomy enough for 4 kids and their stuff, but it is ideal for two adults and their backpacks. I seam sealed the tent when I first bought it and have had no problems with leaks or drips. The tent stands up well against strong and/or gusting wind, assuming you anchor it and the fly properly.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tent on sale at Gander Mountain. I couldn't resist a Kelty tent for this price. I've used it twice. Once in light rain--no leaks. It is very roomy for two people. It can hold two cots with plenty of space for gear underneath. The 57" height is great. I just wish it had a vestibule to cook in during the rain. The only downside is the tight front door zipper. You have to be very careful or it will break.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this tent for 2-3 adults of my family to car camp in. I have used this tent one time for four days in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park one April-2005 weekend. During that stay, I experienced an unbelievable contrast of weather. From 70 degree temperatures and extremely high winds from a squall line thunderstorm, to a light dusting of snow with cold (30 degree F temperatures), to sunshine and the 50s. We got it all in those four days!
