A great entry-level alternative to the low-end tents found at many big box retailers, the economical Kelty Acadia 2 can serve as a basic camping tent for two people or a durable backpacking tent for first-timers.
The Acadia 2 provides 32 square feet of interior space and internal storage pockets provide places to stow gear and maximize available floor space for sleeping or playing games on a rainy day. Two doors offer easy entry and exit points and two vestibules, of 13 and 10 square feet (23 square feet combined), offer additional exterior storage space for muddy shoes or a protected area to store fire wood or camp chairs in wet weather.
NOTE: The Acadia 2's fiberglass poles are heavier and more fragile than aluminum poles, but wrapped construction makes them stronger than the fiberglass poles found on many department store tents. A third brow pole, constructed from DAC Hybrid aluminum, and continuous pole-sleeve construction help to reinforce the structure and support the rainfly of the Acadia 2.
A full, mesh canopy allows for good ventilation in warm, humid weather and the ArcEdge floor design with taped seams protects the floor for the Acadia 2 tent from wet weather. An optional footprint (sold separately) further protects the floor of the Kelty Acadia 2 camping tent against ground water, roots and rocks.
