    Comments about Kelty Trail Ridge 4 - 4 Person Tent:

    This tent is frustrating. The shape is perfect---very roomy at the top. Seems waterproof. BUT: It's very hot in the summer due to the solid fabric doors. There are mesh panels everywhere except where you most need them: on the doors to let the air flow through. The fabric doors are totalloy unnecessary for privacy. They serve no function except to block air flow.

    It's really frustrating to camp in a beautiful place and not be able to see the view outside. I replaced one of the fabric panels with mesh. It was a heck of a lot of work, but it worked reasonably well.

    I'm giving it 4 stars because except for this one serious flaw, everything else is great. Note that this tent is quite a bit smaller than the average 4-person tent. It can fit one person on a cot or two people on mattresses very well. Three would be crowded and four would be impossible in my opinion.

      Comments about Kelty Trail Ridge 4 - 4 Person Tent:

      This tent would be just about perfect if it weren't for the SOLID FABRIC DOORS. (I mean on the tent body, not the fly.)On warm summer nights this tent is HOT. There is no air flow because of the solid doors. It gets very stuffy.

      Also, the solid doors mean you can't see outside the tent. What's the point of camping in a beautiful place if you can't see the view? I don't see the point of the solid doors at all. Privacy? Just close the fly doors for privacy. Really wish Kelty would change the doors to all mesh, the same as the TR2 and the TR 3.

        This tent is perfect. Fit a queen size air mat with about 1-1,1/2 feet on two sides. I'm a big guy and fit in it with my girlfriend and our two 60lbs+ dogs. I usually keep the fly doors open to get a nice breeze. I wish that the doors had more mesh to them it would help keep it nice and cool. Perfect tent for two people who don't want to be cramped and have extra space. Love the colors and design as well. Kelty always make quality products.

          Comments about Kelty Trail Ridge 4 - 4 Person Tent:

          Wow- I'm loving the easy setup. I downsized from a larger tent that took 2 people 20-30 min. to setup and was a real pain. Now I can setup myself in less than 5 min. The aluminum poles are great and design structure is very stable. We camped for 4 days. 2 days we had heavy showers and 20+ mph winds. The tent got a good testing. The wind did not phase it much and there was just a small 5" wet spot at the left of one door. But that was no big deal considering how hard it rained and the wind factor. I purposely set up the tent so that a solid side wall was against the prevailing winds and not into a doorway. I noticed that one zipper flap would be pushed closed by the wind while the other would be blown open exposing the zipper to the driving rain. A small design change in reversing one door direction would solve that along with a note in the directions pertaining to prevailing wind direction setup.(are you listening designers) The tent has plenty of room for my girlfriend and I. We stowed gear under her cot and that leaves about a 14" space between us. I am tall and she is on the cot so we each sleep across the doorways because that is the longer length. The two doorways work great in the middle of the night when nature calls. Overall I love this tent!

            This is a fantastic value for a 4-person family tent. It's well made, easy to set up, and looks good. It's a little tight for 4 adults, but definitely doable. It's perfect for us and our two kids. Big big thumbs up on this product.

            Comments about Kelty Trail Ridge 4 - 4 Person Tent:

            I took this tent on a seven day Yellowstone trip (car camping in established campgrounds). I was able to set up in ten minutes with little to no difficulty (I am 6'0"). The orange clip straps on the rain fly correspond to the orange strap receiver clips making fly set up simple. The tents stood up very well in strong wind (15-20mph sustained) for several hours and did not leak during an hour long rainstorm. The zippers are solid and did not catch or hang up. When set up in the direct sun the metal poles can get HOT as does the inside of the tent but the large doors allow adequate ventilation. I can fit my full size cot into the tent without it touching the mesh once it is set in position, however getting it into position requires gentle pushing of the cot into the mesh sidewall (not a problem, just need to be careful). I'm very happy with this tent and look forward to years of use.

              Used this tent on a recent 7-day trip to Northwest Nebraska. Very easy to setup, but the fly can be tricky to setup in the wind when camping solo. Here's a trick I learned: Orient the narrow side of the tent into the wind. Then, with the fly upside down on the ground, snap the two narrow side snaps to the tent. Then using the wind as an aid, lift up the other end of the fly and the wind will practically install it itself.

                  This tent is an excellent purchase- for the price, i couldn't see doing any better. Great ventilation with the fly on AS LONG AS THE DOORS ARE OPEN. gets a little stuffy when they're zipped, but breathes well. We camped thru a pretty good rain storm and the fly did a fine job of keeping us dry. The tent sets up and breaks down quickly and easily, but really needs 2 people to throw the fly on- especially if there is a breeze. the provided duffel allows for easy packing, the poles are nice and sturdy, and the tent is suprisingly light for it's size. Definitely get the foot print and a good water-proofer with it, and you'll be set for a long time. The casual camper would be just fine in this tent.

                      A:

                      The clip can be used as a guy out point to keep the fly from touching the tent wall.

                      A:

                      The door on the Trail Ridge is fabric. The majority of the tent body is net.
