Ideal for solo backpackers the Kelty Gunnison 1 with Footprint offers an excellent set of features at an affordable price. With a large front door a roomy vestibule and internal storage features it’s a whole lot of tent for the money you'll spend.
Swivel-hubbed aluminum poles offer strength and stability. Color-coded clip construction makes the tent a cinch to set up and the freestanding design 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 Gunnison 1 provides 18 square feet of interior space and the vestibule offers an additional 11 feet of protected space for stowing gear or muddy boots. A gear loft (sold separately) can be hung from the loops integrated into the ceiling of the tent to maximize livability by allowing you to store clothes and gear overhead.
Mesh wall panels and fly vents provide great airflow preventing condensation build-up on the interior of the tent. A PU-coated polyester- rainfly provides excellent weather and UV protection. The included footprint further protects the Kelty Gunnison 1 against ground water roots and rocks.

Real Customer Reviews
- Nice lightweight compact tent
Likes: Very compact and light weight for the cost, it is a great little tent for a solo backpacker or young scout staying on his own.
Dislikes: Requires extra poles or a stick to prop flaps open, not a problem to rig a line to hold them back but a mild inconvenience
- Excellent 1 Person Tent
Likes: A very versatile tent with assembly being very easy in any condition. Tent material quality is superb and the tent stakes that come with it are surprisingly durable. The vestibule is one of the best I've had in single person tents.
Dislikes: Footprint is slightly more narrow than I would have liked and I would have appreciated a gear loft/more pockets. The shape when packed up is also not ideal for my specific backpack though this will vary between users and shouldn't be a deal-breaker.
