    Comments about Kelty Grand Mesa 2 - 2 Person Tent:

    I bought this tent because my main tent was leaking and I didn't have time to waterproof it before a backpacking trip. Since that trip, this has become the main tent. I was looking for a lighter tent but really, for the money, this is about as light as it gets. My original tent is ~ maybe 1/2 pound lighter and is one of the best tents made. The old tent is now waterproofed but I still use this tent! This thing has been through rain, wind, and sleet. I have never been wet. This thing is tough, it's never blown over and the fly has never come loose. It sets up super quick and being a dome design, you can move it anywhere then stake it down. The rain fly is simple to install. Plenty of room inside for two. Good ventilation. It looks nice. It's a keeper. My old tent is the back up now.

    Comments about Kelty Grand Mesa 2 - 2 Person Tent:

    I bought this tent in 2011 for my son and I, when we went to Philmont, a Boy Scout Camp in N.M. We hiked 74 miles with this tent for 8 days and never had a single problem. I have just bought 6 more for the Adults in the Scout Troop to use because the one that we were using was so small that Adults were having a hard time in them. Bottom Line this Tent is Awesome for the price.

      Comments about Kelty Grand Mesa 2 - 2 Person Tent:

      I bought this to take to Philmont and share with another adult. We were trying to minimize our weight. It is a good, lightweight tent that fit both of us (5'9", 200 lbs, 5'11" 175 lbs) in the tent. Granted, we didn't have any extra room, but for us it worked great. The single door saves on weight, but is cut pretty tight and might drip inside suring a rain - we didn't have any during our trek. However, we had a 50 mph wind storm and the tent held up expertly in the wind - very durable.

      Comments about Kelty Grand Mesa 2 - 2 Person Tent:

      Overall this is a great tent for the price. It is a bit on the heavy side but much roomier than Ultralight varieties. Actually, it is not much heavier than other tents that call themselves 2 person but what you get is a solid 2 person tent for under $200. You can find other ways to lighten your load if you go for this tent. I stripped it down to the nuts and bolts--no stuff sacks or extra cord/steaks and I it weighs in at just over 3lbs.

          First camping trip ever for me. Georgian Bay kayak camping trip. Kept the bugs out but I had tent coated with Permethrin that I also bought here. No bugs even landed on the tent with that stuff on it. Camped on Fox Island & along French River and it held up to the wind well. Its a little small for a 2 person tent and was ok with just me in it. I had my gear spread around in the tent being new to camping. I wouldnt mind some more pockets on the side.

                Really like this tent. Sets up in about five minutes and is all mesh from the top of the tent to half way down to the bottom. Great for enjoying the surroundings and seeing the sky. Also has a convenient loop hole in the center to hang a light.

                  The first time I used this tent it rained for 36 hours. No water Inside. Also the first time I put it up I had about 10 minutes before it was dark. No problem couldn't be easier. So far so good. Also the service at Campor.com couldn't be better-received this tent less than 48hrs after I ordered it. Free shipping!

                    What does "min weight" refer to? Is it poles, fly, stakes, and tent?

                      A:

                      Minimum weight is the weight of the tent and fly without the poles and stakes. Carrying a tent with another person can often result in 1 person carries the poles and stakes and the other the tent body and fly.
