User Review: Kelty Grand Mesa 2
Design: three season free standing
Ease of Setup: Very easy to set up and break down
Weight: 2.0 kilos
Price Paid: $99.95
I wanted a light weight but comfortable tent that would easily fit on to the back of my maxi motor scooter for a 10,500 mile camping trip through 23 states.
I chose the Kelty Grand Mesa 2, because of the excellent brand name, lightweight and durable characteristics. You can fit 2 people in this tent in a tight squeeze, but it makes for an ideal roomy single person tent.
I used this tent continually for over 50 nights of camping, in all kinds of dry, wet and windy weather conditions and it performed admirably.
It is a very easy tent to set up and break down. Dries quickly when wet, and easily packs into a tight space.
I hit some tremendous rain storms from Missouri through to northern Florida, and the tent fly did not leak a drop.
Camping through South Dakota I went through a prairie wind storm one night, and the tent stood up well.
I took the precaution of extra waterproofing the tent fly, and this paid off with no leaks.
I highly recommended this tent. I'm planning another 2 month 12,000 mile motor scooter camping trip this summer and my Kelty Grand Mesa 2 tent will be right along with me.
