    1. Needs to be Longer...

      I'm with the other reviewers on this one... this tent is Awesome, yes... but for a tall person like myself.. well, that's where it gets a little less awesome. Laying down flat I'm touching both walls, which is kind of annoying. So if you're going to make one thing Awesome this year.. please make it longer, that is all. Other than that.. great tent.. seriously!! on Jan 22nd 2017

    2. Great tent... for one person

      Tent capacities are always kind of a joke and this definitely the case here. I absolutely love this tent but just for 1 person. I'm 6' tall, 210 lbs and there is plenty of room for me and my gear. No gear, maybe a small second person max.

      Tent goes up in a snap. Folds relatively easily and has decent head room for a trail tent.

    3. Make it LONGER!!!

      Great for small people.. not as great for tall people!! I get that you're trying to shave weight and all, but I would gladly haul some extra ounces if it gave me another 6-7" of headroom. So... 2017... you know what to do. Thanks!! on Jun 9th 2016

    4. Overnight bike trip

      Purchased this tent over the winter for a few bike camping trips. The last time I camped out was in the late 80s. My first test run at setting up went smooth and the second and the actual trip. I like how the tent clips to the poles but the tiny velcro tabs on the fly are annoying. A little patience with the fly door zipper cover is required. Used 4 s-biners to connect guy lines to tent, tension clip at stake end. Gear storage under one fly door fit panniers, trunk and bar bag without blocking access. At 25F I woke up with ice on the mesh above my head. Just a little condensation under the fly with doors closed and vents open. I'm happy with it.

      That top center clip will get me every time.

      Zipper to the fly broke the very first time we used it. Poor made. on Jan 5th 2016

      Perfect except for one than or 85" length makes it a one person tent for me. I'm 6'4" and and have to sleep diagonal in the tent. Otherwise I just don't fit. PLEASE make this otherwise awesome tent longer. on Nov 29th 2015

      Let me start of by telling you that this is probably the best tent I've ever owned. The build quality is superb and blows all other tents out of the water! Even the poles are something from the future the way they snap into place with such ease. It's a little tight for 3 people I'll admit, but it is doable. I consider more of a spacious tent for 2. The starlight feature is amazing and by far the best thing about this tent! My only gripe.. and this is my only gripe with this tent.. is that it is not perfectly suited to the tall traveler such as myself. I'm 6'3" and I'm head to toes touching both walls. While I can still manage inside, I kind of have to sleep at an angle to fit in there properly. Also one more... I wish this tent had come with a gear loft like my other Kelty tent, but other than those 2 things this tent is Awesome!!! Anyways to Kelty... Please make this tent a little longer (88"-90" preferably) next year and throw in a gear loft and I will gladly buy this tent again. Thanks!! on Sep 16th 2015

      BELIEVE THE HYPE! I am from Colorado Springs and have used it here and all over the country in the summer that I have used it. I have put this "bad larry" through the wringer. I have used this tent in tons of places from Shenandoah Valley, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, The Crags on Pikes Peak, Badlands and Petoskey State Park. This tent is easy to set up, hold up to the elements and is as tough as it is cool looking. on Aug 18th 2014

      Just bought this tent the other day. It was SO easy to put up and it was light for traveling. Big enough to fit a queen sized air mattress and perfect for summer camping. on Jul 27th 2014

    10. Customer Review

      Just used this tent almost every day for a month strait traveling in New Zealand. Loved the all mosquito netting, kept us nice and cool in the hot summer sun. The tent was really nice and spacious for 2 people and would still be fine for 3. I loved how the poles snap into the tent floor and the rain fly snaps on as well. None of that loosing the grommet while trying to get the tent poles up. Easy to put up and take down as one person too. The thing I disliked the most was the bag the tent came in. If you don’t roll the mosquito mesh inside, it can get snagged on the Velcro, other than that worked really well, nice and light and had a great view out the two doors! on Mar 11th 2014
