"This is a great little tent and has been with me on several extended hikes on the AT. It is easy and quick to set up (no feeding poles through sleeves), everything is color coded, very light (under 5 lbs), and spacious enough for my girlfriend and I to sleep pretty comfortable. The tent could use a little more ventilation with the rain fly on and there is no extra fly space to store gear on rainy nights...but, for the price (under $100), you cant beat Kelty quality."

"When my loaner gear fell through six hours before leaving for a three day backpacking trip, I ran to Academy Sports and picked this up for $99. It was the only brand-name 2-person tent they had in stock.

- The pre-shaped poles made one-person setup simple and quick.
- Plenty of room inside for me, a 55 pound mutt, and my pack.

- No vestibule.
- Would be tight for two adults.

Had I known I would be buying a tent for this trip I probably would have chosen something lighter. I could certainly have gotten more tent for the money, but I needed it right then. I would be reluctant to put two people in this tent, unless they were already sharing a bag. Still I have no complaints and am pleased with it."

"I bought this tent after a long hiatus from backpacking. I am completely happy with the product. I got it 2 years ago at Gander Mountain for $90; worth every penny. Fits me and my great dane or me and a friend.

Have never had any problems with rain or condensation buildup. And that is straight out of the box.

Great for backpacking in the ADKs. I've used it in a temperature range from 10-90 degrees.

Only downside is the lack of a vestibule for gear."
