I wrote a review of the Salida 2 and also said I also own a Salida 4 (see Robert in 2015 in the two reviews). It is always easy to write a glowing review for something you have only had for a short time. Now that I have over 5 years with both of these tents.....I still love them....except the supplied tent stakes ;-)
Both tents saw at least monthly use with Boy Scouts and family, several extended week plus trips, Of the two I like the extra room of the 4 person of course....but it also has a couple of features such as pull out rain fly on the back and sides the smaller tent doesn't have. This helps to keep it cooler and less humid inside (something we have to deal with in the Mid West along with deluge rain storms). I have had a few trips where I was the lone occupant of the 4 man for over a week and those extra head room inches are nice....still not a stand up tent but OK. One thing that was much appreciated was at a camping trip where we had the tent entirely setup and staked out....than we found out we were in the wrong camp site. I just pulled the stakes out and picked up the entire tent and attached fly and moved it a couple of blocks to the right spot. I guess that time it became a mobile home!
With Boy Scout trips you always expect wear and tear.. I haven't had any broken poles, bad seams, bad zippers, tears, and not a drop of water inside. It even survived a soccer game crash when it was the accidental "goal" . And yes....I DID buy some rally good stakes so no more bent stakes. So I am still a very happy camper...

I upgraded from a Salida 2 to a Salida 4 and am very pleased. The Salida 4 is much more roomy inside, so for me and my wife, we weren’t as cramped. Both the Salida 2 and 4 are great tents; the time it takes to set them up is about the same. (5 minutes or so, depending on if you put the rain fly on or attach ropes to secure it.) One thing that stood out with the Salida 4 is the attachments that go from the tent to the poles that hold it up. I liked how they “twist on” so if the tent is bumped or blows in the wind, etc. , there is no chance of the tent detaching from the poles.
The Salida 4 is also taller, so that makes it feel more roomy as well.
Again, all in all, great tent. Ryan on May 21st 2018
Ordered this tent in a rush for a quickly-upcoming camping trip to Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. Kelty came through with first class customer service and on-time delivery. It's good to be able to deal with a company that actually cares about their customers.
The tent- Having only used it on one camping trip (3 Days) my experience with it is limited, but here's what i know so far: Quality workmanship, simple and fast set-up, and easy to get back into its storage bag, unlike other tents i've owned. Reasons i chose the Salida4: price was competitive, perfect size for my style of car-camping, aluminum poles, and full coverage fly.
Thanks Kelty! Ron T on Oct 11th 2017
I outfitted my entire Scout Troop with this tent. We do 3 to a tent + gear and it has worked perfectly for us. we've been out in many a rainy night and always have dry and cozy Scouts. Scoutmaster Mark on Oct 5th 2016
The best feature of this tent is the full length fly. Anything less is just not suitable for wet and windy weather. Rated for 4 we have used it for 2 people and our pooch and gear with lot's of room to sit-up and even stand-up (with a slight hunch) while getting in and out of the tent. It sets up perfectly in minutes with 1 or 2 people. It's always roomy and always dry and all this for under 7 pounds.
You can find short-length fly's on tents anywhere and cheaper too but this is a one-of-a-kind tent for the money. Please, never change the full-length fly on the Salida, it's the near perfect tent. Bill H on May 18th 2016
Has all the features and weight of a great all around tent. There is only one item that can be maybe offered as an option. South Texas summers will be hot with the ground level rain fly. A shorter fly that gives privacy but allows air flow would make this tent perfect........ Paul Sulsh on Apr 17th 2016
I own both a Salida 2 and a Salida 4 and very happy with both. I wrote a review that applies to both at the Salida 2 review site. Robert on Sep 15th 2015
Awesome light backpacking tent for 2 adults plus gear. Love it. Bradley on May 19th 2015
Great Tent! Being a Boy Scout, this tent has lasted me the past couple years with not one drip of water ever leaking in the tent. No problems that I can say, which is hard having used many different types of tents in the past. I recomend this tent to everyone. Great Quality! My all time favorite tent. Kyle on Feb 4th 2015
