Designed to work with Kelty’s TraiLogic gear collection, the TN2 backpacking tent delivers innovative 3-season performance in a compact and lightweight 2-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 TN2 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 TN2 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 TN2 provides 27.5 square feet of cozy interior space and a generous 42" 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 20 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 TN2 tent against ground water, roots and rocks.

Sweetest Tent I’ve Owned
Reviewed by Corey S. - April 15, 2018

Likes: I’ve spent many nights in many different tents. The Kelty TN2 is the best tent I have owned!!! Light, extremely easy to set up and plenty of room with a moon roof to boot! My niece loved helping me set it up for the first time and she also gives it a huge thumbs up!

Dislikes: None

Good one person backpacking tent

Likes: Lightweight, well ventilated good for ONE person with gear. I am 5'10".

Dislikes: For 2 people in a pinch, with not much gear space inside.

A Great Backpacking Tent for anyone Just Starting Out (like me)
Reviewed by Billy P. - April 12, 2018

Likes: As I'm somewhat new to the backpacking world, I thought I could just use my old military tent to do section hikes of the AT. Weighing in around 10lbs and taking up a significant portion of my pack, I realized it was time for an upgrade. After much research, I went with the Kelty TN2. By cutting down the weight by over 50%, this tent has made my hikes significantly more enjoyable. Backcountryedge's videos were extremely helpful in explaining the features and set-up (which is very easy by the way). I love the weight, color, and most of all, quality this tent offers. Can you go higher end? Of course. But the price was right and I'm not disappointed. Great product!

Dislikes: None at this time.

Good tent, better service
Reviewed by Brandon G. - March 20, 2018

Likes: Easy to set up, large vestibules, compact poles and light. This tent will be roomy for one person, and slightly snug for two, as typical for a 2 person tent. The service I got from Backcountry Edge was stellar.

Dislikes: Massive rain fly due to two vestibules. Zippers don't operate smoothly without gripping the netting sometimes.

Everything I expected
Reviewed by Abigail R. - March 20, 2018

Likes: This is my first backpacking tent. I chose it after extensive research and I'm so glad I did. It is very easy to set up. Its very high quality. I'm 5'10" and have plenty of space to sit up and room to move around. I dont see myself using the stargazing fly as much as I expected but I'm glad I have the option.

Dislikes: There were many comments in other reviews made about the very top where the pole form a triangle and may collect dew or rain. Upon setting up I noticed this could be a problem but so far,even during light rain and heavy dew, there has not been a problem.

Very happy thanks
Reviewed by Jose M. - February 2, 2018

Likes: Very easily and very quick setup

Dislikes: None

Excellent Bang for Your Buck!

Likes: Quick Setup
Decently Weatherproof

Dislikes: Did experience some issues in the Rockies during high winds (not as sturdy as some heavier or higher quality tents)

Great tent!
Reviewed by Rachael H. - July 2, 2017

Likes: I really love the spacious vestibules! This is my first tent purchase ever, and I appreciate all of its many good qualities including stargazing mesh galore, lots of guy-out hooks, spacious head room, easy setup. I found it well represented by the description and specs.

Dislikes: Thus far, I do not have any dislikes.

Great tent
Reviewed by Chad - May 3, 2016

Likes: Very happy with the quality of this tent. Before I purchased mine I did a lot of research and read the reviews and it is everything I was looking for in a free standing, sturdy, light weight tent with two doors. Can't go wrong with this one.
