The feature-rich Kelty TraiLogic TN 2 Tent is a compact and lightweight shelter designed to pack easily while saving space inside your backpack. Part of Kelty's new TraiLogic collection, the TN 2 features shorter poles so you can pack it into a flat, rectangular Tent Cube to help save space in the TraiLogic PK 50 (or any other) backpack. The Stargazing Fly gives an unobstructed view of the sky for nighttime entertainment. And if it does begin to rain, the TN 2's fly can be fully deployed without ever leaving your sleeping bag.

I usually don't use a tent, but I had a late trip planed for this fall and thought it would be a good idea to have one just in case. Set up was easy and quick even for someone like me that only uses them rarely. Its only a one person tent if you have extra items you want to keep in the tent with you.
I ordered the TN2 as a catch-all for trekking and camping, both solo and with my girlfriend. Overall, it has been a great tent. A few key notes: 1. I'm 6'4" and just fit without having to curl up. 2. My girlfriend and I fit in the tent perfectly together but it would be an uncomfortable fit if I tried to share with another friend of similar size. 3. It's packed form is angular and works well for backpacking purposes. 4. Despite low clearance of the floor (aka where the screen meets the solid fabric, I have not yet had an issue with water getting in -- have yet to experience a storm though. 5. Set-up could be quicker but its pretty straight-forward. 6. And the stargazer feature isn't just a marketing gimmick; it's the best of both tent and cowboy camping!
