Ideal for cost-conscious campers, the Kelty Trail Ridge 6 tent delivers reliable 3-season performance at a budget-friendly price. It offers easy set-up, room for up to 6, and provides excellent ventilation in hot and humid conditions. An included footprint delivers bolstered protection and adds value.
Hubbed aluminum poles give the tent 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 6 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 6 provides 82 square feet of interior space and a 74” overhead peak height. Internal storage pockets and an included gear loft stow gear and maximize available floor space. Two integrated vestibules offer a total of 34 square feet of additional exterior storage space for wet or muddy shoes and gear. A light-diffusing design on one of the interior pockets lets you transform a headlamp (not included) into an interior light.
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 6. The PU-coated polyester rainfly offers full coverage and keeps the interior of the tent dry during wet weather. Unique roll-back connection points allow you to stargaze from the interior of the tent on clear nights. Strategic construction lifts the taped floor seams up off the ground, eliminating potential for leaks. The included footprint further protects the Kelty Trail Ridge 6 against ground water, roots and rocks.

- We Like It
Likes: This was our first foray into the 6 person tent world and overall we like it. Full coverage fly stakes out pretty good for the size. Poles pack down well. Comes with footprint and gear loft. We've camped about 10 nights in it; so far so good. Light wind and rain but mostly dry sunny weather. Great for star gazing once you remember to orientate things correctly.
Dislikes: The morning after our 1st night we noticed that the floor was transparent due to heavy condensation between the floor and footprint, on a dry night with the fly partially open, but it didn't seep through. The ground wasn't very damp. We now use a tarp between the footprint and tent floor. Never had that happen with our old brand's footprint and floor, even on rainy nights. Not sure if that's due to the floor's somewhat thin material or a fluke. Corner attachment points don't seem to lock tension as well as other systems. Overall it's good but with Kelty's high retail price they could beef it up a slight bit.
