Kelty’s newest tent designs blend essentials with ease
BOULDER, COLORADO (For Immediate Release)– Whether at the peak of mountain, in the parking lot of a concert, or at a family campsite, Kelty tents and shelters are legendary for their ability to stay dry, to keep fresh air flowing, and to improve the outdoor experience.
“Everybody wants to enjoy the best outdoor experience they can have,” said Kenny Ballard, president of Kelty. “Whether they’re thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail or just lounging in the backyard, Kelty tents and shelters offer the durability and performance they deserve, with the versatility for multiple activities that they desire.”
In Kelty’s Backpacking Collection, Kelty’s two-person Grand Mesa is designed for backpackers who want to go light without forgoing the comforts and conveniences that can make or break a trip. At only 4 lb, 2 oz, the Grand Mesa is the ideal solution for lightening your pack, but not your wallet ($120)
For a hint of additional Backpacking comfort, the Pagosa offers an expanded but lightweight floorplan in 2-person (5 lb, 4 oz ) and 4-person (9 lb, 4 oz) configurations. With twin doors and matching vestibules along with a gear loft for an uncluttered interior, the Pagosa is a trailside palace. ($200/$250).
In the Camping Collection, Kelty’s new Villa 4/6 is a uniquely configured dome tent with a 6-foot ceiling, a crossover vestibule complete with soft shelf storage, and double doorway. Designed for the luxury camper in the crowd, the Villa will turn heads while you rest comfortably ($350/$425).
In the Basecamp Collection, the new Cartarp builds on Kelty’s successful line of expansion and freestanding shelters with a compact and clever way to keep sun & rain at bay. At only $100, the Cartarp attaches to any vehicle roof-rack and then stakes out into a roomy 110 square foot tarp. The Cartarp comes complete with two aluminum staff poles and multiple guyout points to enhance coverage and allow for flexible pitching options.
