  1. Customer Review

    I work for Kelty, I can assure you that we run all these questions by our product developers and managers when they come up. In response to the comment below about the Salida 2 being 84", the designer confirmed that the tent IS 88" in length, however the box is incorrectly labeled as 84". We're working to get that changed, and thank you for bringing it to our attention. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to contact us. We always welcome customer feedback and suggestions!! on Aug 24th 2011

    The KELTY website tells the length to be 88" but who knew, get it in the mail stoked but soon disappointed with the box saying the length is 84". Pisted off now I have to pay to return product sweet. on Aug 17th 2011

    I purchased the Salida 2 months ago. I've used it three times in this period of time. I have been very pleased with everything from the fabric and sewing to the provided poles and stakes. Very easy setup, enough room for two people and a small amount of gear. The vestible area is pretty nice and offers enough room for two larger packs. Packs down pretty small (slightly larger than my Eureka Zues II). I wish the footprint was included, but not a big issue, I'm just still waiting for one to come in-stock. I would've given a 5-STAR rating if it was slightly lighter. on Jun 20th 2011
