The Kelty Buttress 4 is all about living comfortably.

You are protected from the weather by the full coverage polyester fly which completely protects the tent and its occupants (that would be you) from even the most driving rain storms. The tough durable floor is Kelty's famous Arc Edge floor which raises the seams up and inverts them to the inside of the tent which insures dryness.
