Summary

This is a nice roomy tent that has been used in all four seasons. It has been a good value.

Pros

  • Roomy
  • Light for the size

Cons

  • Fly doesn't cover the doors very well

Setup is simple if you follow the directions. The poles have a unique configuration which requires they be installed in a particular order for optimum stability.

The tent is quite stable in all but the strongest winds. Lots of mesh keeps condensation away.

I spent a week at scout camp in sun, wind, and rain. No complaints about this tent's weather resistance.

The sidewalls are near perpendicular to the floor because of the pole configuration. I would have liked more height, but there would be other tradeoffs.

Everything works as expected after two years of regular use.

Welcome to Trailspace, Raymond. My first tent was a Kelty. It's still in great shape. They make good stuff.
