User Review: Kelty Trail Dome 4
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $94
Just used this tent 5 days on the Arkansas River. Had wind, rain, heat and cold in the Colo mountains. Sets up fast n nice, plastic fly poles broke day one had to make do. Anyone who has this tent can get nice well made poles for the fly at tent pole tec .com $26. With the large tent poles included and the new poles this tent should be bullet proof and perfect.
- Simple Design
- Well Made
- A bit small best for 3
- Fly poles are junk
This is a very well built tent as Kelty does. Sets up fast and simple. The fly is great but the fly poles are plastic. Not good for kelty as they seem to be cutting corners. Although the tent poles are larger than most small tents?
The open air top is nice and no mesh on the walls is warm. It is a very dry tent. Overall can't be beat at under $100. It is a bit small for 4 good for 3 and very comfy for 2. If you buy the new poles from tent pole tec online for $26 shipping included this tent can't be beat at all for under $130 and will last a long time.
I did just use it in the Colo Rockies on the Arkansas River and had wind, rain, heat, and cold all in one week. This tent was great except the cheep fly poles mentioned above will use this tent all summer long all over Colorado.
