Product Highlights

Designed to work with Kelty’s TraiLogic gear collection, the TN3 backpacking tent delivers innovative 3-season performance in a compact and lightweight 3-person package that sets up and breaks down quickly and easily, packing down small and flat into the included Tent Cube to save space in your backpack.

Three DAC Pressfit aluminum poles give the TN3 a rigid frame, and color-coded clip construction makes it easy to identify which pole goes where. The poles are additionally compact-folding (with each section being 14 inches in length) to easily fit into the breathable mesh Tent Cube tent storage bag when packed. The freestanding design of the TN3 allows you to pitch the tent 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 TN3 provides 39.5 square feet of interior space and a generous 43" overhead peak height. Internal storage pockets provide places to stow essential gear and maximize available floor space. Two doors provide convenient exit and entry while dual vestibules offer a combined 22 square feet of additional exterior storage space for wet or muddy shoes and gear.

The No See Um Mesh tent body offers maximum airflow and nighttime star views even with the Stargazing Fly attached. A half-on-half-off design allows the 40D Sil Nylon rainfly to be fully rolled down and secured from inside the tent at the first sign of foul weather. The floor is constructed of durable 70D Nylon with a 3000mm PU treatment that further ensures waterproof protection. Kelty's patented ArcEdge construction lifts the taped floor seams up off the ground eliminating potential for leaks. An additional feature is noiseless zipper pulls on both the tent body and fly.

An optional footprint (sold separately) can bolster the Kelty TN3 tent against ground water, roots and rocks.

    Likes: The Kelty TN3 is extremely easy to setup and a great weight for a 3 person tent.

    It held up well in 20+ mph winds with heavy rain.

    The stargazing aspect was a great added feature.

    Dislikes: No gear loft included

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Fantastic tent. Exchanged this one after trying out a Jack Rabbit SL4. Wanted a roomy tent for stargazing and this tent has it all. The fly roll-up system works great. Quality tent and superior design in every way. Love how tight the fly fits with the small, strategically placed velcro "guy-line" ties attach the fly to the poles. I went for the entire Kelty Trail-Logic system (tent, PK50 pack, SB35 bag) based on very knowledgeable customer service advice from Leon at BackCountry Edge and I could not be happier.

    Dislikes: Nothing. Couldn't be happier with the purchase and design. Would be a little tight for 3 people. My personal opinion is to get this one if you are looking for a 2 person tent with a little extra room. It's lightweight for a 3 person tent.
