  1. Built to Endure!

    This tent is built very durable, light and we'll designed. One use I had with it it rained all day and the wind blew. When we had returned to camp the inside of the tent was dry. So much rain came that water had accumulated under the tent in between the pad, but it did not feel damp on the inside! I love this tent and look forward to using it for many more years! on Jul 30th 2018

  2. Awesome tent!

  3. Bomb Proof!

    I have three Outfitter Pro 3's in my lineup of tents. I rent gear often and use them on week long guided trips In The Bahamas. There has been no other tent stand up to the harsh enviroment of the tropics like these tents.
    They are a bit heavy, but their sturdiness outweighs the drawback of their weight. While other tents I have have begun leaking and the poles have snapped, these tents remain strong with almost no issues whatsoever.
    I was a little surprised by the fact that the zippers can pull straight off if you pull them too hard, but I found sewing a small button at the bottom of one side has eliminated that problem.

    As long as these tents keep being made to this level of ruggedness there will always be a few in my inventory!

  4. Great tent but the zippers are not really field repairable!

    So, I had this tent set up in my backyard to watch the Perseid meteor shower Aug 2016. The tent was 4 months old having been purchased in April 2016.

    I threw the rain fly on until evening as we had some passing afternoon thunderstorms. When I went to zip the fly shut, the bottom zipper pull just slid right off the bottom of the zipper with almost no zipper. I went around to the other side of the tent to close up that vestibule. Same thing, the zipper pull just zipped right off in my hand with little effort.

    I was PO'd at this point but I figured hey, these things are field repairable, no sweat. What I found out was that yes, one zipper pull can be reinstalled in seconds to make the rain fly zipper functional. You can get a watertight fly. But.....there is no way to regain the functionality of two zipper pulls that allow you to vent the fly from the top of the vestibule.

    The zipper pulls must be installed facing in opposite directions. There is no way to do this if the bottom zipper pull comes off the bottom of the zipper. You have almost no access at the top of the open zipper because of the way it's stitched. And the zipper pulls are only designed to go back on the open zipper design in one direction.

    There are no instructions on the Kelty website to help with field repair of these double pull zippers. There were no instructions with the tent.

    So, the only way to regain the functionality of double zipper pulls is to buy 4 aftermarket zipper pulls like Fixnzip at $12 apiece. For $48, I can get back the ability of venting the fly at the top of the vestibules. Yeah, ya can't just replace the one that came off. You'll need to replace both pulls on both vestibules on a completely open zipper coil. The factory pulls won't allow that.

    This is not enhancing my opinion of an otherwise good tent. That extra venting is very handy in hot humid weather. And this was only about my 7th night in the tent.

    My advice would be to never zip the fly within more than a couple of inches of the bottom of the zipper track.

  5. This is a great tent!

    I bought this tent a few weeks ago and have spent one week in it so far. We had two adult men in it at 20 deg F with zero condensation. The highest wind gusts we had were about 20 mph which didn't seem to phase the tent at all.

    I know this isn't the lightest 3 person tent on the market. But it seems like the best balance of size, ruggedness, and weight. I wanted something that will last and something that won't let me down. The fabrics and coatings on this tent plus heavier than usual DAC press fit poles make it worth the extra 2lbs or so for me.

    Aside from the ruggedness, I wanted a tent that is easy to set up and take down. This is a classic dome tent with 2 identical poles and Kelty provides color coded connection points for the footprint (optional), tent, and rain fly. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes for one person just taking their time. The tent body connects with twist clips and two snaps at the top. It's easy to set up even in low light or rain.

    The features are well thought out and executed like the self storage pockets sewn into the fly for the guy lines and two pockets inside the tent for small stuff.

    I like the colors Kelty chose as well. With the rain fly on, the tent is highly visible in early morning or evening light. really comes down to bundling products and weight. For some reason, Kelty sells this tent without a footprint or gear loft. But both are available and I bought both. In my opinion it would make sense to sell a complete tent with the footprint and gear loft. A footprint is easier to clean and cheaper to replace than a tent floor. And the gear loft while not necessary sure makes life a loft easier. And yes, you can find a tent closer to 6lbs than the 8 lbs of this tent but for me the weight was not a huge consideration.

    So what about the price? I think at the price this tent is a great value and a reliable shelter that will last for years while being easy to live with. So I bought one.

  6. Customer Review

    I've often found that buying a tent has a lot more to do with the purpose of its use. I bought this tent a few months ago with the intention of having a durable, seriously waterproof 3-person shelter for car camping on climbing trips. I found it to be very well made. The poles are more reinforced than any other tend I've owned. The tent fabric is think and tear resistant. Unlike so many other tents, it just feels solid. Regarding waterproofness, we were caught in an all night downpour and not a drop got inside the tent. In fact, we hadn't even set the tent up correctly and the rainfly was in contact with the tent and still nothing got wet. Pretty impressive. I highly recommend this. I selected this tent over the Gunnison but I suspect both are good tents. on Jun 22nd 2014

  7. Customer Review

    I have six 5 day camping trips for work with this tent. This tent is exactly what it claims. Strong, durable, and built to last. I have not had to hike with the tent in my pack on any of the trips, so i can not say if the weight is worth the durability, the tent is heavy and bulky, because kelty use stronger and thicker material for the floor and other items, the tent does not compress down much, and would take up a larger space in my backpack then a lightweight 3 man tent, but i did not get this tent for weight of size i bought it to last, and i need it for heavy use year round, and i am so happy i made that decision. The first thing i noticed was how think the tent poles are, the zipper all the way through the floor is heavy duty, as for me at this moment the weight and size is worth every penny if not more. 12 years in hawaii conservation restoration. on Jul 28th 2013
