User Review: Kelty Sage 3
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $170
Nice 2+ person tent.
- Roomy size for 2 (and enough for a small kid too)
- It's discontinued
This is one of the few 3-person tents out there. We wanted it to have a little extra room with a kid on the way. It sleeps 2.5 just fine and is very comfortable with just 2. It's easy to pitch and easy to pack. Stays solid in light-med wind (but have not tested it in really high winds).
Great ventilation without the fly and okay with it in place. No moisture issues (used in rain twice). It's got good headroom and it packs to a reasonable size. We didn't get a footprint for it until a couple of years later — luckily, no problems.
There are much more expensive tents (this was $169 on clearance) that are a couple of pounds lighter, but this has served well for a 6 pounder. It's the only non-lightweight item in our setup. We've had it 6 years and are very happy with it.
