Updated for 2013! The Kelty Gunnison 4.2 backpacking tent offers an excellent set of features at an affordable price. With 2 doors, 2 vestibules and internal storage features, the Gunnison 4.2 is a whole lot of tent for the money you'll spend.
Swivel-hubbed DAC Pressfit aluminum poles offer strength and stability to the Gunnison 4.2. Lightweight corner supports and Jake's Foot stakeouts help to eliminate pole rotation and increase overall strength considerably. Color coded clip construction makes the tent a cinch to set up. The freestanding design allows you to pitch the Gunnison 4.2 and then move it around your campsite to find the optimum position, eliminating an uncomfortable night's sleep over an exposed root or rock.
The Gunnison 4.2 provides 58 square feet of interior space and boasts 2 doors and 2 large vestibules. Offering 28 square feet of combined exterior storage space, the dual vestibules are perfect for stowing gear and muddy boots. The two doors provide each occupant of the Gunnison 4.2 with an individual entrance and exit, eliminating the need to climb over each other when nature calls in the middle of the night. Kelty includes a gear loft to maximize livability by allowing you to store clothes and gear overhead.
Sidewall vents, a mesh ceiling and fly vents provide great airflow, preventing condensation build-up on the interior of the Gunnison 4.2. A PU-coated polyester- rainfly provides excellent weather and UV protection. Welded rainfly windows provide a view of the outside. Kelty's patented ArcEdge construction lifts the floor seams up off the ground, eliminating potential for leaks.
An optional footprint (sold separately) further protects the Kelty Gunnison 4.2 against ground water, roots and rocks.
