Kelty Trail Ridge Tent

The Kelty Trail Ridge tent series is available in 4 models: Trail Ridge 2, Trail Ridge 3, Trail Ridge 4 and Trail Ridge 6 (pictured). The Trail Ridge is great for 3 season car camping and is great for families due to its innovative design that allows for star gazing through the top of the tent. The design, which allows the walls to remain steep, also gives the tent a huge amount of interior space. The majority of the upper section of the tent is mesh, so when it is used without a fly, there are great views of the outdoors. The tent has 2 doors which is great for getting in and out without disturbing the other campers. Some of the tech features of the Trail Ridge include an ArcEdge floor which will remain taut and keep the seams off the ground, keeping the floor dry. DAC Pressfit poles and color coded clips make setup a breeze. There is also a Gear Ledge which give you plenty of room to store your packs, clothes and other items.

The general consensus from our reviewers was that the Kelty Trail Ridge is most likely the best bang for your buck in the 3 season / car camping category. This tent has the features of other tents that cost 2-3 times as much. One example is Kelty using clips instead of sleeves. One reviewer told us he went camping with his family in the rain and was able to set up the 4 person tent by himself in 90 seconds! He went on to say that it rained during their entire 5 day trip and the full rain fly and floor design allows him, his wife and 2 small children to stay warm and dry the entire time. Other reviewers noted that the tent is extremely waterproof, well ventilated and has great gear storage. One reviewer did say you would not want to put 4 full size adults in the 4 person model unless you all really liked each other but most families of 4 would be fine.
