rated 5 of 5 stars I love this pack. I'm 6'1" and my wife is 5'4" and we both use it. I just finished hiking at Acadia National Park hiking just under 40 miles in four days from Sand Beach to Cadillac Mountain. I used it as a daypack carrying a soft side cooler with cold drinks and lunch for two, Swiss Army Knife, Garmin 60CSx, raincoats. I will never part with it. Full review

Mantra 7

rated 4 of 5 stars I camped with the tent for eight years. At first, the poles were too long and ripped the tent. Kelt gave us new poles and fixed the tear. This tent held up in severe winds and rain and kept us dry. Another storm off Lake Michigan, our family went to sleep in the car. When we returned, the tent was blown up the bluff, lodged between two trees, and was still intact (it needed more weight to hold it down or bigger stakes to keep it down). This spring the tent leaked and I was told the polyurethane… Full review

Domolite 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Great tent. Sets up in three minutes like it states on the box!!! Other reviews I just read are totally false. It doesn’t weigh 8 lbs, try 6 lbs without the extra tent stakes. Poles slide into sleeves with ease and you don’t need all the tent stakes only 3 instead of the 8 or 9—less weight. Your sleep pad and sleeping bag will keep your tent in place with three stakes. Great tent, bathtub floor sewn and sealed with Talffa tape, leak proof seams. I really love my Domolite and bought a second… Full review

Salida 1

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I bought this tent to replace an Alps Mountaineering Mystique 2 (two person) because I didn't need that much room for just myself. Thus enter the Salida 1. I also added the footprint ground cover to protect the floor. The physical description from people's reviews are spot on...freestanding, rain fly, single doorway, kind of a smaller size vestibule but I think it works for one person's stuff. The floor plan itself is long (one reason I chose it, I'm rather tall), is 'coffin shaped' so one sleeps… Full review

Trekker 65

rated 3 of 5 stars Lots of room, comfortable after alteration. Lacks a critical adjustment option, but with some imagination and a trip to your local machine shop the pack can be re-engineered. I like external frame packs because they sit off my back and allow air to circulate. My 25-year-old one finally bit the dust, so I bought the Trekker 65. Unfortunately, the vertical position of the pack on the frame is not adjustable, leaving the pack way too high on the frame. Kelty could not correct the problem, but with… Full review
