      Comments about Kelty Salida 2 - 2 Person Tent:

      Received this tent for Christmas (at my request). I was looking for a tent that would work primarily for my wife and I to go on backpacking trips together. I had looked at some floorless single wall tents for weight but knew my wife couldn't do the "creepy crawlies"! This isn't the lightest tent out there but defiantly is for the price. We have had it a year and used it on four trips. I used it once with a buddy and it was snug for sure but very comfortable for a couple. It is easy to set up, light enough, roomy and great quality. It has held up in some of the windiest places in the country and stayed dry in the rain. Some cons would be the stakes are cheap and heavy I replaced them immediately. Also it has a tendency to condensate in cold (one night was 18). but is reduced by guying out the back of the fly. Very happy with this tent, it is a wonderful purchase!

        Comments about Kelty Salida 2 - 2 Person Tent:

        I go camping at least once a month and have done a lot of hammock camping but I've recently discovered that my dog likes to camp, so I bought this tent because hammocks and dogs don't mix. This is one of the easiest tents I've seen to set up- so much so that directions truly aren't necessary. There is a decent amount of room- my son (11 yrs. old) and my dog ( lab/beagle mix- medium sized) and I (5'10") slept just fine. There really wasn't much room to spare, but it worked great. We had a little rain and wind, but there were no leaks. I would highly recommend this tent...it isn't quite as light as my hammock, but it isn't so heavy that I'd rule it out of a backpacking trip. Nice tent with a nice price!

          bought this last minute before a back country trip to the tetons (WY) and sawtooth range in idaho. great price, lightweight. made a big diff then you are caring all that you need for 3 days solo. it can fit a second person with gear in the vestibule. not the warmest, but great for 3 season trips where weight matters. if you are car camping, then you don't need to worry about the weight.

              A good affordable lightweight tent. One major flaw; One end is bigger than the other, so that is where your heads go. This GREATLY reduces how you can orient the tent, for slope, access, wind , etc.

                  The Minimum weight for the Kelty Salida 2 Person Tent is the weight as given by Kelty that may or may not include accressories such as guylines, stakes, tent & stake bags, etc.
                  The Package weight is the actual weight of the tent and all accessories that one needs when using the tent.

                • A:

                  Well, obviously you would need the poles and stakes, too, but yes the Salida 2 does offer a "quick-pitch" option with just the rain fly and the footprint (available separately).

                  A:

                  no, the fly can not be set up without the tent. The tent provides the framework of support for the fly.

              • Q:

                Is this a free-standing tent? Also, where is it made (country of origin)? Lastly, can you tell me the length of one pole? (I realize that's an odd question, but the shock-cording on my Kelty Teton 2's poles lost their shock-cording so I cut it out and then lost one of the segments. If they're the same length, then I could use the poles w/either tent, as I can't seem to find replacement poles)
