User Review: Kelty Salida 2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150
Light enough for backpacking, 3-season reliabilty, good construction, easy to set up, good color.
- Fairly light for low price
- 3-season weather resistant
- Roomy for a lightweight tent
- A little heavy for backpacking
I was looking for a lightweight and weather proof upgrade to my fleet of old, cheap, beat up tents. The tent is easy to set up, the rainfly takes a bit more thought but still easy. My girlfriend approves of the colors (very important).
It's reasonably light and has stood up to mild wind and rain, no chance for severe weather testing yet. Tempted to do some light snow camping with the Salida 2... I'll post a review if I do. Oh and price vs. quality can't be beat.
I'm so impressed with the quality vs cost of this tent that I plan to stick with Kelty for all my camp gear upgrades.
