Likes: Great tent - very roomy, easy to set up, and stable in decent wind and weather. Kelty quality is always top in my opinion and this is a well made product, both the tent and poles. Great value!

Likes: Large two man tent. Has good ventilation. I like that the 3rd pole makes the celling of the tent and the whole tent fell bigger. I also like the two doors and vestibules. Great tent for the money.

Likes: Large two man tent. Is light weight fro the size. The zippers fell very sturdy. Good three season tent. Enough room for two large people. Good ventilation. Good because it has two doors and vestibules. I brought these tens for the Boy Scouts and we are going to use them in Philmont.
Dislikes: Guy line felt a little cheesy.
– San Jose CA
Likes: Having two doors that are covered by the rain fly is convenient and useful for storing gear. The included loft was a nice touch and handy. The tent stays surprisingly free of condensation even in cold weather.
Dislikes: It would be great if it was a bit lighter, but can't really complain for the price.

Likes: I like the two vestibules that this tent offers when sharing with another person.
Dislikes: The tent is a bit heavy if backpacking and carrying by yourself. The weight is ok if sharing load with another person.

Likes: This tent is very easy to set up, light, yet roomy, and performed well in the field. We slept on medium and one large male comfortably, and weathered some pretty strong rain storms, with no leakage and very little condensation. I recommend the ground cover. It is very well designed.
Dislikes: We were a little dissapointed in the super tent stakes that are marketed with the tent. The hard pan in the bad lands bent them pretty easily in eraly July.

Likes: This is a great tent for the price. The floor wraps up the walls about 4" all the way around. Two vestibules makes storing gear easy and out of the way. The fly completely covers the WHOLE tent keeping it dry. Took about 10 minutes to set up and 10 minutes to pack up.
I am 6'2" and I fit in it with my thermarest back packing cot just fine!!
All in all great product!

Likes: Used for two nights in Northern Wisconsin. 12 hours of steady rain and no seeping through whatsoever. Set up on a tarp, floor felt a little damp in the AM. Will be purchasing footprint. Seals are strong and no zipper issues. Lightweight, very happy.
Dislikes: Recommend the footprint if using in the rain.

Likes: The kelty trail ridge 2 is a great tent for the price. My son and I took it out for the weekend and it was great. I may get the ridge 3 for more room to the whole family.

– Augusta GA
Likes: Tent is very light for the money. The aluminum poles are very nice and feel very sturdy. The overall setup of the tent is super simple, it is pretty roomy inside for a 2 man tent. Overall an awesome tent for the money
Dislikes: The vestibules are a little small, this was really the only thing I thought was not outstanding.
– Cave Creek AZ
Likes: Great value! This tent is well made, and a great design. I especially like the dual vestibules, since we use one for gear and the other as an entrance.
Dislikes: Should be a bit lighter, but would probably cost more if they started cutting ounces
– Calumet MI
Likes: I was looking for a tent that was <$150, 2 person, 2 vestibule, <5lbs. This tent met 3/4 criteria, with the weight coming in at 5.5lbs I settled since I paid only $115. Have used this tent 6 nights. Very spacious interior for 2 adults (5' 6"). Side walls are designed to increase roominess, very apparent during a rainstorm spent comfortably playing cards. Did not experience any leakage. Set-up is easy (similar to most free-standing tents with clip on rainfly). The inside has 2 interior pockets (one at your head, other at partners feet) + hanging loops for optional add-on gear loft. Overall I highly recommended if your tent criteria is the same as what mine was.
Dislikes: Ventilation could be better. Not a problem if you can roll back the door at night, but when fully enclosed during a rainstorm it was somewhat humid.
