Outdoor outfitters has the Kelty Mantra 2, a fair sized 2 man, 3 season tent listed for $110 (which sounds like a pretty good deal), but I've heard that kelty has had some poor quality craftsmanship the past few years. I have never had any problems with any products from kelty before, but I would like some other opinions on this matter. If anyone has opinions I am listening.

Some of the Kelty items are still fine. I have a Kelty Dolomite and love it. I really like the design of the Mantra--the three poles seem like they would add a great deal of stability. It also got some good reviews (see link below).

I'd love to hear where you are finding it for $110...

you can buy a 3 man dome tent at www.outdooroutlet.com for 79.00. looks like a good tent. i read some good reviews on kelty. this tent is a reconditioned with a satisfaction return policy. it retails for 179.00. best deal that i found. i ordered one last week. if i dont like it i send it back and lose 6.50 shipping. if i like it i feel i got a great deal on a tent for my wife,daughter and me. to see it go on the "outradgeous deals" link.
