Cosmic Down 4°

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Son is in an Active Boy Scout Troop that camps 11 months of the year. I hate the cold and had relied on two 30 degree sleeping bags, all my clothes and a blanket until I found this Kelty Cosmic on sale. Warm and toasty even at 0° now.

rated 3 of 5 stars Upgrade over big heavy tent, but not what I was expecting from Kelty. I had a three-man Wal-Mart special 'backpacking' tent that weighed in around 9 lbs.

Trekker 3950

rated 4 of 5 stars You can still find well-made Trekkers in like-new condition online if you're a smart shopper.

There are now a lot of better options on the market, but they cost more money. I recently purged my outdoor gear… Full review

Salida 1

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Well made, good materials. Very nice looking. Just received it and set it up indoors. Very easy to pitch. A major complaint: no fly vent. With the high walls, the lack of upper fly vent will make this tent hot in summer. I wanted a high wall solo for early spring and late fall, so it will work for me. Mesh on tent body is only near top of tent. Rectangular tent bag is different; had to add ties to tent body and fly to keep size down when packed. Not lightweight, but not heavy either. A very well… Full review

Flyway 43

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the Kelty Flyway 43, which is a travel friendly daypack based off of the popular Kelty Redwing 44 pack. Like the Redwing pack, the Flyway is panel loading and has many features for organization. Additionally, there are travel friendly features like a padded laptop sleeve, rain cover and a separate bottom compartment. Features Size and design: The pack has a volume of 43L and is carry-on size. The pack uses durable 420D polyester material Panel zip main compartment and bottom zipper access:… Full review
