Kelty Orb 3
Price Paid: $300?
I have an older model that I have used extensively in Alaska. It has weathered every storm including a helicopter landing next to it without any problems.
The only reason I dock it 1/2 a star is the weight and ventilation, but both are pretty much what you would expect from a 4 season bomb shelter.
Price Paid: $402
It is a great tent. It has enough space. It's supposed to be for only 3 people but actually you can get 4, looks pretty cool. But the problem to me was the weight, the space that uses in the backpack.

Ready to brave the elements? The Orb is the strongest high-alpine mountaineering tent in the Kelty line.
- Altrec Outdoors
Kelty gave the Orb 3-Person 4-Season Tent a wind-tunnel-tested pole sleeve interface that strengthens the overall structure, so you can bring the Orb on high-alpine treks without fearing a tent blow-out. Trusses at each intersection help guide the poles through during setup, while tendons on the stakeout points prevent stretch and movement under heavy winds. Kelty's DAC press-fit poles stand up to years of mountain storms. The Orb Tent's sidewall vents and closable mesh panels help cool things off on warmer camping trips, two doors eliminate the number of crawl-overs in the middle of the night, and two vestibules shelter your gear.
- Backcountry Outlet
ArcEdge floor has specially designed, watertight, sealed perimeter seams that stay up off the wet ground. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Closeable mesh panels and rainfly vents provide adjustable airflow to allow good moisture evaporation. Features clear window in front vestibule, guyout points, noiseless zipper pulls and taped seams. FlyBoy technology anchors the body, rainfly and poles together into a single, unified, self-reinforcing structure. Freestanding design allows easy setup, while the DAC Pressfit poles feature a pressed-in ferrule, ensuring poles remain strong and reliable. Internal pockets and gear loft loops keep stuff organized inside. Two doors and two large vestibules allow easy entry and exit with shielded storage areas for your gear. UV-resistant polyester rainfly doesn't stretch or expand when wet, ensuring a consistently taut pitch. Vaulted pole sleeves increase airflow between tent and rainfly to prevent condensation. Webforce stabilizes the tent further and eases setup; trusses guide poles through intersections, and tendons lock stakeout points to FlyBoy. built for those epic mountaineering adventures, this is Kelty's strongest, all-purpose, three-person tent.
