User Review: Kelty Zen
Design: 3 season hoop-style
Ease of Setup: very easy
Price Paid: $100
This has been a solid tent. I've used it for solo hiking. I haven't had it out in extreme conditions, but it has kept me dry during some rain showers. Ventilation hasn't been a problem but most of the camping I've done has been fair weather.
I've since upgraded to a freestanding tent which makes drying a tent at home much easier. With the hoop-style tents, you can't pitch (not easily anyhow) in your garage to let it air out and for cleaning. However, set up and breaking it down is super easy. Takes just a few minutes.
The zippers sometimes stick a little, but if you're careful, you can avoid it.
For the price, this is a terrific tent. User friendly, light weight, good features, and quality materials and construction.
