Bought the Kelty Salida 1 originally, but exchanged it for the Gunnison 1.3 due to the Salida's lack of fly vents.

Have used it in a very heavy rainstorm while canoe camping and it held up great. Was warm in it in 30 degree weather in Harriman State Park in a 35-degree bag. The square bag is different (shorter pole sections), but it fits nicely in the middle of a pack. Can be packed small with practice.

I carry it broken down: poles, stakes, and tent separately. I carry the fly and tent body in a Kelty small compression sack (color: Curry).
