Ideal for backpackers, the Kelty Trail Ridge 2 tent delivers reliable 3-season performance at a budget-friendly price. The Trail Ridge 2 offers easy set-up, room for two and provides excellent ventilation in hot and humid conditions.

Three DAC Press-fit aluminum poles give the Trail Ridge 2 a sturdy frame and color-coded clip construction makes it easy to identify which pole goes where. The freestanding design allows you to pitch the Trail Ridge 2 and then move it around your campsite to find the optimum position, eliminating an uncomfortable night's sleep over an exposed root or rock. Stakes are included to secure the tent in place.

The Trail Ridge 2 provides 32.5 square feet of interior space and almost 4 feet of overhead peak height. Internal storage pockets and an included gear loft provide places to stow gear and maximize available floor space. Two 8.5 square foot vestibules offer a total of 17 square feet of additional exterior storage space for wet or muddy shoes and gear.

A full mesh canopy combines with venting in the rainfly to provide great airflow and prevent condensation build-up on the interior of the Trail Ridge 2. The PU-coated polyester-taffeta rainfly covers the whole tent and keeps the interior of the tent dry during wet weather. Kelty's patented ArcEdge construction lifts the taped, floor seams up off the ground, eliminating potential for leaks. An optional footprint (sold separately) can further protect the Kelty Trail Ridge 2 against ground water, roots and rocks.

Likes: Great mix of weight and 3 season trail hiking tent. Good price.

Dislikes: Vestibule not as big as described, but still enough for 2 backpacks.

Likes: Just got this for Christmas. Nice and lightweight, packs down small. Can't wait to use it on our next scout backpack trip.

Dislikes: Nothing.

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!

Dislikes: Nothing

Likes: The Kelty Trail Ridge 2 has several benefits over other tents I have used while backpacking. The two vestibules created by the rain fly provide extra living space within the tent by providing a place to stowe your gear outside the tent. This is a nice feature if you don't mind storing your gear outside, on the ground. This might be a problem if it rains. The overhead stow net is helpful for keeping track of small items like keys, phones, etc. Probably the feature I most appreciated about the Trail Ridge 2 is the overhead crossbar. It opens up the top part of the tent providing more head room and a larger interior feel in general.

Dislikes: The material feels thin. I did not experience any adverse affects on my one outing, but I tend to prefer material that feels a bit thicker and by implication more durable. I do, however, want to emphasize that there were no product faiures. Also, the actual tent I received had a small imperfection on the screen. There was no hole, just a small area (around centimeter area long) that was slightly bunched.

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.

Dislikes: Notheing

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.

Reviewed by Inside Edge M. - April 20, 2014

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.

Reviewed by Peter R. - November 27, 2013

Likes: Roomy for the weight. Headroom was very good. Brow pole provided almost vertical walls, which was the main reason I selected this tent. 5-6 hours of rain the first night I used it and I was dry as a bone!!
Very good value for the price!!

Dislikes: Weight is a little more than I like, but the near vertical walls, and the low price are an acceptable tradeoff!

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: Light weight, alot of room. Can't wait to use it.

Dislikes: On the bulkier side. Poles dont go much smaller than 24 inches or so. Still very nice overall.
