Kelty was founded in 1952 with the aim of providing reliable and affordable outdoor gear to all outdoor enthusiasts. Today, the company is one of the largest manufacturers of outdoor gear ranging from tents, backpacks, sleeping bags as well as camping accessories. Aside from that, the company has been a leading innovator in the outdoor industry and has helped shaped the industry to what it is now. Some of their innovations include the aluminum-frame backpack, air mattresses, Hydration pack and most recently the AirPitch. One of their highest rated tents is the Kelty Gunnison 2 Person Tent.
The Kelty Gunnison 2 Person Tent was designed to offer the best performance at its price. The tent comes with innovative features guaranteed to make your outdoor venture a success. Primarily designed as a 2 person tent, it comes with the following:
The tent houses 37 square feet of floor area allowing you and your roommate enough space inside. It also comes with 2 additional vestibules as well as internal gear loft for storing your valuables inside. Housing over 20 square feet, the vestibules are perfect for storing muddy boots and climbing gear. To facilitate movement inside, the tent has 2 doors unlike most 2 person tents.
For a 2 person tent, it easy for things to get uncomfortable thanks to little airflow. Luckily, the Kelty Gunnison 2 Person tent tackles this issue by having a 40-inch interior to not only allow movement but help ventilation. On top of that, the tent also has sidewall vents, fly vents and a mesh ceiling all to minimize condensation inside the tent.
Easy and fast to Set Up
Thanks to the color-coded clips, setting up this tent is a no-brainer. On top of that, pole anchors make sure that your tent remains secure in place. Even beginners will find it incredibly easy. In case you are stuck, you can always refer to the included manuals.
The tent also houses a free standing posture that allows you to easily reposition your tent when you want to move around. On top of that, it also increases the overall stability of the tent.
Built to withstand 3 seasons, the tent comes with top of the line materials enabling it to perform even in the harshest environments. The tent packs the award-winning DAC Pressfit Aluminum poles allowing your tent to remain stable even in high winds. It also comes with a PU-coated polyester rainfly that makes sure your tent remains dry throughout the wet season. On top of that, the coating offers excellent UV protection to preserve your skin. It also comes with a nylon floor that’s water proof up to 1800mm designed to keep your floor area dry even in heavy downpour.
