    1. Great Tent!!!

      This is my second Kelty tent and we have already used it three times this summer. Like my other Kelty, the set up and take down gets faster with every use. On one of our trips it poured rain all night long and the Acadia did it's job well, keeping us warm and dry! The only negative I have to say about the Acadia tent has to do with the poles. As they are not smooth (have an metal connector piece) from time to time the poles can get caught up in the tent sleeves (bunching). Overall, the Acadia is a GREAT tent which I would highly recommend to any of my friends or family.

Easy set up, Good material, performed will in a couple of storms. 1 Thing that is wrong Made In China.... All my other Kelty equipment is Made In the United States. What happen here? on Jul 8th 2015

      Allow me to gush a bit about the Acadia 6 tent. I just returned from a week long camp(cut short by two days due to the government shutdown)and the tent performed flawlessly! The first to nights were plagued by HEAVY rains. The second more than the first and boy it was torrential 1-3" overnight. There were three other tents in our party, two owned by me, all were Ozark Trail tents from Wal Mart. They all received substantial amounts of water, but the Acadia 6 had NOT ONE DROP on the inside. I was amazed! The zippers never gave a minutes trouble. The two door design was very handy also. What I liked most was the vestibule that I could stand up in and be out of the rain when entering the tent. The weather was cool but there was a noticeable difference in the tent. It was always comfortable. During the day we could tie back the entryways and get a nice breeze through the tent.It was a breeze to set up and it WILL fold up and FIT into the supplied bag when finished tearing down. This is a great tent. I expect to get many years service from it. Thanks Kelty! on Oct 10th 2013

      Just returned home from 2 weeks camping in my new Acadia 6 tent. I believe its the best tent I've ever owned. We had rain and high winds a few days on the trip and were kept nice and dry thanks to the amazing rain fly and sturdy construction. 6 of the 9 tents camping with us were Kelty. Thank you for a great product. on Jul 30th 2012
