Summary: I was shocked at how reflective these lines are even with a small amount of light. I was tired of tripping over guy lines (I was lucky I never damaged a tent) and these lines have solved that. Well worth the money.

Summary: Every outdoorsman should carry a length of cord. You know the time you should have spent setting up that new tent before you went out with it for the weekend and now you are out in the woods with the time to make all the adjustments but you don't have that cool reflective cord for all the guypoints? Buy it now and put it in your pack. I promise you'll use it.

Summary: I received this tent as a gift for Christmas last year. I finally used it this past weekend (10/9/10). In my opinion the tent is a little snug for 6 people with sleeping bags and pads. You could fit 5 with no comfort issues but 6 would really stretch it. We had mild winds I'd say no more than 15 mph, I didn't use the guy lines and the tent was really stable in that wind. The rain fly didn't flap against the wall at all during the night.
Summary: The tent is awesome! Easy to put together and even easier to actually fit it back into the bag it came in. It is very light, and yet durable. I used it on a rainy and windy weekend, and it stood tall and firm, and the inside stayed nice and dry. The only negative I have about it, is that is says it sleeps 6, but it seems too small for 6. It may sleep six, but all six people would have to be very small.
Summary: overall tent is good..rainfly is nice and big and covers the tent nicely. The tent is 10x10 which fits my type of camping just fine. I do a lot of trip canoeing so I have to put up and take down on a daily basis...so I want a tent that is simple to put up and will endure gravel terrain. The alum poles are easy to put up and down and one person can do it.
Summary: Purchased Kelty Trail Dome 6 to replace an older REI 4-man tent because we needed more room. Once I received the tent, I started setting it up in my living room to make sure I knew how it worked before camping. This thing took up my whole living room! I'm 6'3" and I could easily stand in the center without my head touching the top. The main aluminum poles are very stocky and some sections are slightly pre-curved in the right places.
Summary: I shopped & shopped for a simple quality family tent and decided on this one, Kelty has a good reputation for quality stuff at a reasonable price. The tent was a good size for my son & I (scouting), all our stuff and plenty of headroom (I'm 6'). In fact the specs show 72", I didn't measure but I have 2-3" clearance still. I've done my fair share of camping, backpacking, climbing and overnight rafting trips etc. no stranger to needing, wanting and knowing quality.
Summary: Having had a Coleman tent for years, I did research and decided to get the Kelty Trail Dome 6 Six Person Tent . The main reason I was looking for a roomy tent was for Boy Scout Summer Camp in California and one I could use all year round. The poles are very sturdy and the tent is roomy. Set-up for two Scouts was a no brainer. The zippers worked well to get in and out of the tent. It was a big plus being able to stand up inside the tent.
Summary: I've had this tent for two seasons now and I am very pleased with it. This tent performs great in the rain mainly because the rain fly comes all the way to the ground and both doors have overhangs which extends the fly by using poles. We've not got wet yet even in some bad thunderstorms. A feature that is important to me is that I cand stand all the way up in it and I'm 6'3". Also, the sides of the tent come up at a higher angle making very good use of floor space.
