 Product Description and Specs

For campers looking for a spacious tent, The Kelty Trail Ridge 2, 2-person, 3-season tent, is the way to go. The Trail Ridge incorporates a multi-diameter pole configuration that enables the walls to stay steep and aggressively arch toward the top for a much larger livable space. For more space, this tent includes two equal-sized vestibules for plenty of storage. The freestanding design means you can set it up nearly anywhere and adjust the positioning easily. Color coded clips make setup quick and easy. Taped floor seams and an ArcEdge floor keep the moisture at bay.

• ArcEdge floor with taped seams that do not contact the ground, mesh ceiling
• Internal storage pockets and gear loft loops
• Guyout points, noiseless zipper pulls
• Side-release buckle tent-fly connection,
• Color-coded clip construction

I "broke in" my new Kelty Trail Ridge 2 Person Tent on a recent kayak overnight stay. I chose this tent after diligent research and it performed as well as expected. Easy to pitch / break down. Kept me dry from a heavy dew, light weight, easy to pack and stow in a Tsunami 140 kayak (along with other gear). Two persons could fit in this tent, but is really best for one person as two persons would take all the room with none to spare. Double doors does make it easily accessible from each side, vestibule on each side is great (could be larger). Be sure to also buy the Kelty 2 Person Ridge Tent Footprint, a must to protect your tent floor. I also used Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp XL sleeping pad, very nice addition. All in all, I recommend this product, but if you are looking for a tent to be used by 2 persons and want any extra room consider the Kelty Ridge 3 Person Tent. As always, lightning fast shipping from the crew at the "kayak shop".

My search for a well-made, easily-pitched, reasonably-priced, three- season, 2-person, backpack/car camping tent with decent living space and headroom for a 6 ft. human ended at the Kelty Trail Ridge 2. Its 45" peak height and steep side walls gave it a much roomier feel than other models with comparable floor space, and the overall design, materials qualithy (DAC Pressfit poles), and workmanship stands up to its competitors quite well. At first set-up, I was a bit skeptical of the long-term durability of the nylon (?) fasteners that hold the lateral pole across the ridge; but having seen no problems reported by other reviewers on that point, I'll just assume that the Ketly folks know what they're doing. Very pleased with this tent and the service provided by ACK.
