Summary

Great tents as with any product from Kelty.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Ease of setup
  • Holds up to high winds/rains

Cons

  • Not large enough for 2 men
  • Cheap aluminum stakes.

I bought several of these tents from an online vendor for my scout troop. The tent works great and allows for quick setup. We have used these tents for several outdoor trips and have not had any defects or design flaws noticed.

We did have these tents setup at camp one weekend and incurred very high winds and rain. The tents performed exceptionally. Tents are too small for two grown men and barely fit two 12-year-old boys.
