Pretty Good

Bought this tent on Kelty’s website and used it camping in March in the California Desert. Tent is very spacious and very easy to tear down. Set up isn’t quite as easy as they make it look in the video – you have to help the poles up. I find that it is easier to crawl inside and pump up the tent from the inside so that I can help the poles up at the same time. Tent must be staked in order to stand up – this is not like a dome tent that you can set up and then move wherever you want. Also, there is no floor in the vestibule area however if you buy the footprint it will create a floor for the vestibule area, so that is recommended.

Tent held up well in the rain and wind. Rained on us the first night – no leaks. The wind was also fairly strong and I had no trouble once I had enough air in the poles. The front pole collapsed on me a couple of times after set up, but I found that putting a little more air into it made it stand up well in the wind. I also very much like that the tent is basically a rain fly with a removable sleep room inside, so there is no extra setup required once the tent is inflated if you leave the sleeping room attached when packing up. The clips for the removable sleep room are difficult to remove and are cheap – they break easily (I’ve already broken one while removing the sleep room for cleaning) – a minor disappointment for a $400 tent. Kelty should have used lightweight metal clips or something of better quality.

Overall I’m very pleased with this tent so far. Much less of a headache to set up and tear down than my previous tent, which was a Coleman Bayside 6.

Pros: Fairly easy to set up, very fast and easy to tear down. Roomy and comfortable. Holds up well in rain and windy conditions. Good cross ventilation along both axes of the tent.

Cons: Cheap and difficult-to-remove plastic clips holding the sleeping room in place, no floor in vestibule area requiring purchase of a $50 footprint, does not pack up small – definitely a car camping kind of tent.

Used tent in extreme weather conditions for 2 weeks and was pleased with the tent’s performance. I especially liked the "garage" feature and the "liveability" of the tent.

Camped on St George Island FL, a barrier island 4 miles off shore, temp range 31 to 70 degrees, wind gusts to 35mph, 6 " rainstorm, 2 tornados and 2 water spouts during the 2 week period.

The front storage (garage) area allows you to keep all gear, including your bike, inside. The salt air is corrosive on the equipment, so the extra protection is great and also very roomy.

The opening between the "garage" and sleeping area is large enough that, when opened, give the tent a large living area. A screened area on the front tent opening would be nice in warm weather.

The frame is very sturdy and retains air pressure. Definitely recommend setting up, at home, before the first time you use it. Also recommend a Kelty foot print which gives the garage area a "floor". A Great Tent.

I love this tent primarily because as I was sitting in our truck on the 4th of July practically crying because it was storming so hard, there wasn’t a drop of water in the sleeping area of the tent! The footprint is a must have to keep items off the ground and you can fit (with a tight squeeze) a double high queen air mattress in the sleeping area. Overall it met the needs of this 20-something couple!

This tent Blows!!!

This is one of the coolest tents I have seen. Its very easy to set up and when you break out the pump you might get a crowd of onlookers as I did . I love to be the coolest person at the camp site.
The only issue I had with the tent is it came with a hole in it but I sealed that with the tape and it worked great.

Easy to setup

The tent is very quick & easy to setup once you figure out. It is not hard, but the external rain fly (that is attached to the tent & can’t be removed) makes it a bit confusing when staking the tent. It is manditory to stake the tent prior to inflating it. Any of the people who have had difficulties during setup have not staked it first. There are ~ 8 stakes for the base of the tent, and about thevsamefor the external ties. You can setup & use the tent without staking the external tie lines (they are just there to open up ventilation pockets). Our 2nd setup was completed within about 3 minutes- very quick for a tent this size, and we are not experts.

The tent is very spacious. The storage area in the front is wonderful.

I have 2 complaints with this tent (but they were not enough for me to return it).
1) the ventilation is minimal. It has been good this fall, but it will likely be too warm in the summer (80 degrees plus).
2) both the exterior door separating the storage area and the inner door separating the sleeping area from the storage area do not have any ventilation. A screen on the exterior door would make the storage area more useful to use as a screen porch / keep the bugs out. A screen on the inner door would provide quite a bit more ventilation to the sleeping area. Neither of these are shown well in any of the pictures. The tent is a great concept, but could be improved upon with some minor tweaks from the manufacturer.
