    Comments about Kelty Parthenon 6 - 6 Person Tent:

    Went camping with this tent in western Maine in early June. We (2 adults and 3 boys) had plenty of room. We even had a pack'n'play for our 13 month old son and didn't run out of room. We stayed dry during the 2 days and nights of rain.

        Haven't tested this is anything approaching torrential rain, but it's held up well so far. Seemingly the best tent I've ever owner, but I'm still waiting to see what happens in inclement conditions. No "bathtub" flooring here - the bottom seems quite thin.

        Comments about Kelty Parthenon 6 - 6 Person Tent:

        Tent stayed bone dry even in a 4+ inch rain this summer. Great design for interior space and head height. It's a little tricky though tightening up the fly so it doesn't pool water on top and still being able to use the vestibule zippers to get out. We've had many good tents in the past, just needed something bigger than a timberline. We really like this tent.

            Just used this tent for a 8 day outing in Yellowstone during early September.
            No snow but enough rain to know it kept dry and quieter inside than other tents I've used.
            Set up is straightforward though just a bit more complicated than smaller tents and takes about 15 minutes with 2 people, a little bit more if just one person.
            We easily fit 3 twin size air mattresses and personal gear inside, with room to spare.

            I'd definitely recommend.

            Comments about Kelty Parthenon 6 - 6 Person Tent:

            I've only used the tent once for a 3 night trip. Only light rain and mod wind. Wasn't able to really stake out fully due to a lack of space in camp area but it still worked well. Very high quality pole system, great coverage by the rainfly, good angle on walls to use cots. It was smaller in depth than I had imagined but still a good compromise between space to sleep and the area needed to set it up. Frequently when camping in the mountains finding a level space between trees can be a challenge when a tent is huge. Too small of tent can be too cramped. I felt this is a good compromise and I expect that it will handle most weather situations well. I have owned quality tents from REI, Walrus, Kelty in the past and feel this is a well made tent. I also bought the under tent tarp for this and it also is well made.

              What is the back side of the tent like? Is the entire side mesh? Or is it fabric & mesh? I'm trying to figure out if there's privacy with this tent w/o the rain fly on.

                A:

                When the fly is in place, the cover over the front and back door is capable of being unzipped to provide for cross ventilation from front to back. With the fly removed, the is a large area of mesh to allow very good ventilation.
