Kelty Trail Ridge 2 Camping Tent:
I set the tent up out of the box with no seam sealant. The fly bagged a little but I didn't guy it out rite because the kids wanted to get into it as well as my labrador. My dog took the corner and streched out tent wall against the rainfly, and the fly appeared to give way allowing my dog to stay dry if rain hit. The fly stretches so tight, that the seams do in fact come off the ground. This is the "arc edge" design Kelty stands by. There is overstress in the fabric and fly wall. But, with the strength of the fabric, I could see it can handle many years of wind and rain before ripping apart. The tub style floor takes most of it, and Kelty did a good job in making this tent. For $170 you can't go wrong with this tent. It has a lot of mesh and that brings the price point up but compare a similar tent at $300 and you'll see the value. This is a good tent. The fly is big enough for about two cases of bottled water. If that helps you visualize it. Another nice thing is the double doors. You can vent the tent by zipping down one of the door flaps. This tent has only 2 poles (DAC) so if you set it up in a cloud of skeeters you can get it up and get out in 3 minutes. The fly goes on quick, (buckle clips) so it's not a problem. Swing it over, line it up, and clip it on. Nice tent for 2 , if you want 3 or more, or a wet dog, get the bigger model. Two six-foot adults will lay out without touching the side walls (in sleeping bags) but add a wet dog and it will get cramped. cheers.
