Kelty tents were first made in the back of an old garage more than forty years ago by Dick Kelty, a carpenter and passionate outdoorsman. From humble beginnings the Kelty brand is now one of the most respected outdoor brands on the market.
Kelty is probably most well known for their backpacks but their tents are also a quality product.
Review of Kelty Camping Tents - Ridgeview, Dome and More
You will find that most campers who own a Kelty have more positives to say about their purchase than negatives. One of the Ketly tents best features is their waterproof capability; they are extremely rainproof and perform well in extreme weather conditions. Ventilation is also good and condensation is kept to a minimum.
The only major gripe from campers who own a Kelty tent is that some of the backpacking models can be a little heavier than other standard backpacking tents, but this problem can be easily averted if you share the load when backpacking and camping with others.
The Kelty range doesn’t include family cabin style tents but its Ridgeway dome backpacking and camping range is quite extensive catering for the solo backpacker up to a camping tent that sleeps seven.
