Trail Purpose

One of the primary camping goals is to keep out of extreme elements and keep your body at a healthy temperature. Of course you can build a wilderness shelter but having a tent handy saves a lot of energy and brings piece of mind. The Kelty 2-man tent is a high end backpacking tent. It is weather proof (wind, rain, sun) and a very light weight addition to your packing gear. Our high end backpacking tent gets used on regular overnighter outings. When we get home we dry it out and store it with our go-gear. 

What We Like

  • High-Walled - Many backpacking tents have mesh walls that don't protect from wind and are very see-through. The Kelty has higher fabric walls for protection and privacy.
  • Durable - Kelty makes a great tent. They are durable. The aluminum poles outlast fiberglass significantly. The seam-taped tent and fly hold up well if taken care of.
  • Light Weight - At just under 5 pounds the tent makes a great addition to backpacking gear. Instant shelter justifies the relatively light weight.
  • Minimalist - The tent isn't complicated. There are only 2 poles and the pole snaps, make it a synch to assemble in a hurry.
  • Designed for Mobility - Once stowed in its bag the tent fits snuggly in a pack for on-the-go mobility.
  • Weatherproof - The seam-taped fabric holds out wind, rain, snow, and sun. We've experienced harsh elements when in the wilderness and a tent of this quality repells it all.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Trial Run - Take it camping so you know how to set it up and stow it away after. 
  • Store It Dry - If you use it, put it away clean and dry so it doesn't mildew.
  • Put It Back - If you use it, put it back. Camping gear has a tendency to walk off when raided for daily use.
  • Comfort Is Key - When you set it up you're goal is to make a great night's sleep. Find a place on the ground where you can put your pad and be the most comfortable.
