A "mansion-style" offering for 3-season camping, the Kelty Parthenon 8 is incredibly roomy and full of organizational features. The Parthenon 8 can even be partitioned into two separate rooms, each large enough to accommodate a queen-sized airbed (sold separately).
DAC aluminum poles provide the Parthenon 8 with freestanding structure and elbow room inside the tent. Color-coded clip and sleeve construction aid in ease of set up by making it easy to identify which pole goes where. The freestanding design allows you to pitch the Parthenon 8 and then move it around your campsite to find the optimum position, eliminating an uncomfortable night's sleep over an exposed root or rock. Stakes are included to secure the tent in place.
The Parthenon 8 provides a cavernous 143 square feet of interior space. Over 6 feet of interior peak height allows even taller campers to enjoy a stoop-free shelter. A removable divider wall grants the Parthenon 8 versatility for use as a single room or as two private rooms. Closeable panels inside the Parthenon 8 add privacy and weather protection when needed and, when opened to expose mesh sidewalls, enhance cross-ventilation in warm weather. The large front vestibule offers nearly 29 square feet of external storage space. An integrated organizer wall and gear loft loops further help to maximize available floor space by providing places to stow and hang gear.
Dual doors provide access options and are especially convenient when the Parthenon 8 is being used in its two room configuration. For ease of use, the vestibule also has two independent entryways. These doors can be rolled open on warmer days to enhance cross ventilation.
Extensive mesh on the sidewalls and ceiling of the tent body provides great airflow and helps to prevent condensation build-up on the interior of the Parthenon 8. The PU-coated polyester-taffeta rainfly provides excellent weather and UV protection. Integrated fly vents and awning-style sidewall coverage improve airflow. Kelty's patented ArcEdge floor construction lifts the taped seams up off the ground, eliminating potential for leaks.
An optional footprint (sold separately) further protects the Kelty Parthenon 8 against ground water, roots and rocks.
