User Review: Kelty Teton 2
Design: 3-season freestanding
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: $125
Pros: lightweight, ease of set-up, inexpensive
Cons: small vestibule, rain fly does not fully cover tent, not the best ventilation
I have had the tent for around a year and a half, and have used it a wide range of conditions. I initially purchased it as a solo tent because I wanted more room than a bivy sack can provide, but my girlfriend has started camping with me a lot.
As for the size of the tent (like almost all 2 person tents), it is perfect for 1 person plus gear. Two people can sleep comfortably, but there is no room for gear. The vestibule is too small to fit 2 packs and other assorted gear, so if you plan on sharing the tent, hope that it does not rain.
The tent is pretty light weight, and without the poles you can really compress it down to fit in the bottom of your pack.
Set-up is a really simple and quick.
I have used the tent in heavy down-pours and high wind, and it preformed so-so in both. Serious gusts really rattle the tent, even when it is staked down well.
All in all, this is a good, inexpensive test for solo camping in lots of conditions or 2-person camping in fair weather. I am seriously thinking about getting a 3-person tent for trips when I am not alone, but I am satisfied with the Teton 2 for solo trips.
