Campsite comfort and convenience is the name of the game with the Kelty AirPitch Mach 4 Tent. By replacing traditional poles with inflatable AirPoles, this out-sized shelter pitches in under a minute with an included high volume, dual-action floor pump. AirPoles are rigid yet flexible and won't bend or break like traditional poles. An integrated, fully-vented rainfly further simplifies set-up while removable "sleep rooms" add versatility. And when it's time to go home, just pull the plug and the AirPitch takes itself down.

So, I have to say I bought on intrigue. I have been in the market for a new basecamp tent since last fall and my requirements were 1. Easy setup, 2. Large Vestibule, 3. Sturdy. I have used Kelty in the past for other endeavors, and have been very pleased with their quality. The Vestibule size looked ideal. Then I watched the Video. WATCH THE VIDEO! This tent, from bag to fully setup, only took maybe 2 mins Tops. That included staking out the corners. Once inflated, the poles are much sturdier than I expected, and held up well when the wind picked up in the evening. No rain yet, but I expect it to perform well based on my experience with other Kelty tents. I highly recommend this tent. I blows the other, "Instant-Up" tents out of the water.
