Seach Latta Outdoors for Kelty Vortex 3.


roland, 0/0/00 User Rating:  N/A
"I used this tent for a month in France and Switzerland during the summer. Myself my wife and dog had enough room to be comfortable. The tent will accomodate a six foot person no problem. The tent has two doors and two vestibules to accommodate gear so you don't have to bring it inside. The tent is made of 2.3 oz of fabric compared to 1.8 with most and has 1800mm of waterproofing which is excellent for a 3+ season tent. When you are in Normandy and it rains cats and dogs or buckets you will appreciate the extra waterproofing and bathtub floor with factory sealed seams.The tent is easy to set up and has good ventilation.In the summer if you keep the fly on open the vestibule doors for cross ventilation. During a wind and rain storm if the guy the tent properly you will be sleeping in the same place in the morning. Don't pay through the nose for this tent 250+ I have seen it at discount for 179- for a year old model Campmore or REI discount outlet. look around and do your homework. The disadvantages of this tent is that when I go to Spain for a month this summer I need a bigger tent I now have two dogs and will have to buy the vortex 4. Go out there and explore. The world is bigger than your back yard."
