1 x Kelty Trail Ridge 2 Tent

From the Manufacturer

Kelty Trail Ridge Series

It's all about liveable space with the Trail Ridge with near vertical walls resulting in increased chill-out space and dual-doors enabling entry and exiting without stepping on your backpacking partners. On clear summer nights, you can use it without the rain fly and gaze at the stars thanks to the fly being mainly mesh.

Step 4
Trail Ridge Grommet
Ball Clip

Once a suitable pitch is found, simply assemble the poles in the form of an 'X' on top of the tent, stake out the corners of the tent and insert the poles into grommets on all four corners forming a frame (Step 1). Attach the body clip at the centre of the tent and lay ridge pole over tent and attach ball cap clip to each end (Step 2). Then work your way around the tent attaching all pole clips on tent body to the poles (Step 3). Then you can drape the rain fly over tent body (Step 4), fixing it with rain fly buckles and the ridge pole ball cap clip. Stake out vestibules and add guy lines and it's ready for use.

Features includes:
  • Freestanding design
  • DAC Pressfit poles
  • Color Coded Clip Construction
  • Taped floor seams
  • Gear-loft included
  • ArcEdge floor
  • No-See-Um Mesh wall panels
  • Internal storage pockets
  • Noiseless zipper pulls

HASH(0x95c1924c) out of 5 stars Compact, sturdy, and light, but the rain-fly design isn't optimal 24 Mar. 2013

I've set it up outside and carefully inspected it. Haven't camped in it yet, but I will soon.

- Lightweight
- Mesh allows view of sky and airflow
- Quick set-up
- Dual doors
- Dual vestibules
- Aluminum poles with magnetic connects
- Gear loft included
- Spacious for a 2-man tent (I'm 6'2")

- Floor is paper thin- you MUST use a footprint or tarp
- Could be a couple inches longer

Overall, I'm happy with it so far. I plan to buy a cheap tarp from Walmart and cut it to size for a footprint. I'll post an update eventually when it gets some real use.

UPDATE: After one full season of use,I'd like to add some additional comments. I slept in this tent a total of about 3 weeks this summer (not all at once). I used in both in the American Southwest, the Great Plains, and in the Midwest. I've been through a few drizzle rains and one severe thunderstorm. On one hand, it has held up extremely well. It is basically in new condition still (minus bent up tent steaks). No leaks in the rain, but some water did pool up in one corner, which I believe was from my cheap footprint catching some rain and then it seeping through the thin floor material. Overall it has done well, but I have a few complaints which I will consider on my next tent.
First, the window-less design means that the inside of the fly almost always is wet in the morning from condensation. This is sort of annoying since nobody wants to pack up a wet tent in the morning, especially when it didn't even rain. You also feel the moisture when you go to get out and have to touch the inside of the fly. It also gets muggy in there on warm nights. More ventilation would be great. The other thing I hate about not having windows is that you can't see outside. When camping, it's very advantageous to be able to have some situation awareness, especially when you hear something moving nearby. I really don't like having to physically leave the tent so see what is near me.
Second, it is awkward to open and close the zipper. It requires crouching down and leaning into the vestibule to reach back and fully unzip or zip. Just kind of annoying. Also, the zipper sometimes gets tough right where the center tensioner pole connects at the top of the door. The stress on the zipper there is highest, so you have to jerk the zipper through there sometimes.
Like I said before, I love how compact, lightweight, and well-built this tent is. It was so nice sleeping under the stars in the Badlands with the fly off and looking strait through the mesh at the Milky Way before falling asleep. With the fly on, however, the tent is awkward, wet, muggy, and restrictive. Next time I'll get a tent with a better fly design. I'm removing one star for this issue.

HASH(0x9629ff6c) out of 5 stars Good tent 27 Dec. 2013

The tent is exactly as advertised. I'm from Australia and it is perfect for our hot climate. The only down sides I can see are 1) you definitely need a tarp/mat under it and 2) it doesn't come with instructions on how to fold it up neatly and tight like it comes. It's so good to have the two doors and we did get a tiny bit of rain but I was dry as happy inside.

HASH(0x952f251c) out of 5 stars Great Tent 23 July 2013
By Perry Whittaker - Published on

The tent is a 2-person tent that I use while out performing volunteer trail maintenance for the US Forest Service. We had one night with approximately 0.33 inches of rain. The fly and tent kept my sleeping bag and possessions dry. I love the loft and two doors although I just used one door since I was the only person using the tent. It is tall enough that I can get dressed and undressed easily. It seems to be designed and constructed very well. I am hoping the tent will be serviceable for me for many years.

Great tent, took it to Copper Harbor Michigan, Rockies national park, Moab, and lots of other places as well. Its only 5 months old at this point, but the poles are very nice and so is the stitching on the tent. It fits me and my boyfriend perfectly and we stay very cozy too. Takes the two of us 5 minutes to set it up, now that we have done it over 10 times. Its stormed on us hard twice so far, no leaks or moisture inside at all. So far its been awesome, and would recommend if your looking for a great starter tent, or if you want to upgrade to a nicer tent.
HASH(0x970691c8) out of 5 stars A very fine tent for a good price 26 Aug. 2015

Goes up easily. Stands strong against the wind and tight against rain. The rainfly fits pretty snug so ventilation with doors zipped shut is not that good- but the other side of that coin is het retention is excellent. I use it for motorcycle camping where size is a consideration but not as important as for backpacking. I think this would be too large/heavy for solo backcountry trips. But if you can divide the load among 2 people it would be great!.
