Kelty Mach Air Pitch series tents replace traditional poles with innovative, inflatable air poles.
An innovative option for 3-season camping, the Kelty Mach 4 tent utilizes inflatable "AirPoles" in place of traditional metal or fiberglass poles. A double-action pump is included to make it quick and easy to erect the Mach 4 and enjoy the tent’s spacious, feature-rich interior.
AirPoles eliminate the cumbersome task of fiddling with multiple and sometimes non-cooperative poles. Integrated valves make it clear where to connect the large volume, double action pump. Within minutes the Mach 4 reaches its full internal height of 72". Large camping tents often put a lot of strain on tensioned metal or fiberglass poles and the AirPoles provide better longtime durability. Stakes are included to further secure the tent in place.
The Mach 4 provides 50.25 square feet of interior space and an enormous front vestibule offers over 50 square feet of protected storage space that can double as a dining room! A double-zipper on the large front door offers easy access to the vestibule and can even be pitched in an awning style for maximum shade and ventilation. Internal storage pockets help to maximize available floor space by providing places to stow gear.
Mesh on the tent body provides great airflow and helps to prevent condensation build-up on the interior of the Mach 4. A PU-coated polyester rainfly provides excellent weather and UV protection and taped seam eliminate potential for leaks
Optional footprints (sold separately) further protect the Kelty Mach 4 against ground water, roots and rocks.

Likes: Very nice tent, the first tent I've owned and really happy with it. Deftly want to do a few test runs in the yard before you take it out camping. I was set up before anyone else that we were camping with, an tore down. Happy with the quality of the tent too! Would deftly recommend.
Dislikes: The instructions are a little vague on the set up. Other then that none.
Likes: I bought this as my new go to music festival tent and it has not disappointed! I usually do car-side camping so weight or size were not an issue, I was purely looking for ease of setup and this one is a dream. It takes some getting used to, just like any tent, so I would recommend a few dry runs in the yard before using. It's not so much that the pitching is complicated, there are just certain tricks that will help make it that much easier. Very roomy and, being 6' 3", I love the interior height; I can put my pants on standing up! Nice design to promote airflow through the tent, even when it rains.
Dislikes: I hate how I can never fold it up exactly as it arrived to put back in the bag. I usually just get frustrated and throw a big wade of nylon and string into the payload of my truck. This has been an issue though with every tent I've owned.
