Compactness and lightness are the most important qualities in the backpacking world. That’s why the TN2 tent was awarded the 2014 Backpacker Magazine Editors’ Choice and the 2016 Outside Magazine Gear of the Year awards. As part of the well-engineered TraiLogic™ Collection, it’s loaded with useful features like shorter 14-inch aluminum poles for easier packing, innovative hug-clip technology for simple setup, and a roll-up Stargazing Fly™ for nighttime enjoyment. You’ll also enjoy spacious floor space along with an oversized D-style door for convenient access. No wonder you’ll want to spend more nights on the trail.

  1. great tent

    sets up in 4 min. lightweight. although its a bit cramped for 2 people. its better for one. overall its a great ten on Sep 5th 2018

  2. Never Again

    Purchased this tent and didn’t have the opportunity to use it until last month. It was stored in the original bag inside a cupboard inside my home. Setup was easy and the mesh ceiling is amazing...fabulous view of the stars. However, the very first time I used it, it rained and one of the the vinyl “windows” peeled right off of the rainfly. Called Kelty and they said I could send it back for repair and it would be out of commission for 6 weeks (basically the rest of camping season) or I could purchase some glue from REI and repair it myself. At their suggestion, I tried that. Didn’t work so I called them again. No offer to replace the rainfly. Some research has revealed this is a common problem with this tent model which disappoints me even more. Never again. Big Agnes, here I come! on Aug 8th 2018

  3. Poor design, waste of money

    After 25+ years with my old Kelty tent I opted to 'update' and bought the TN2. What a mistake! Sure, my old tent was heavy, but it was waterproof and had held its ground through many a storm. This one leaks.

    The windows also FALL OUT! After not even a season of use, the first time I pulled it out this year the windows came unglued. 2 giant holes in your rain fly does nothing to improve your ability to stay dry in a storm, or even warm.

    REI would do nothing for me. If Kelty does not either, I will never buy a Kelty anything again.

  4. Not Good Kelty

    Bought this tent and didn’t get to use it last season. Recently took it on a 3 day camping trip. Setup was easy and I like the stargazing mesh of the tent. It’s almost like there is nothing between the camper and the sky. However, the plastic windows peeled off of the rainfly on the very first day of the trip! This is a major drag, after the very first use, I now have to repair the tent or send it back to Kelty. Not a Happy Camper! on Jul 29th 2018

  5. Windows both delaminated - otherwise a good tent.

    I have used this tent for a total of about 14 nights, and recently discovered that both windows had pulled away from the fabric, leaving two holes in the fly. I was able to do a temporary fix with Gorilla tape, but I'll have to sew a triangular piece of ripstop over each hole. The windows seemed to be either heat-sealed or bonded in place, but whichever method was used, it didn't work. Staking the fly out taut puts too much tension on that seal and it was bound to fail. Otherwise, I like this tent. I'm 6'1" and have plenty of room. Beside the windows, the only drawback is the weight, which is about 5 pounds, but you know that when you buy it. on Jun 26th 2018

  6. Design flaw

    Light weigh and easy to set up. That’s all you get.

    If you are expecting any wet weather you might as well sleep outside. The trianglar deign the the gram comes allows for water to pool and not run off the tent. Guaranteed to get wet if it rains.

    Wish I could return this tent

  7. Great tent for the desert!

    The fact that the tent is so breathable makes this great for those 100 degree nights in arizona. on Mar 28th 2018

  8. Really good tent

    The tent is light weight, easy setup and good ventilation for 3 seasons.
    the colour is transitional grey and green, but not sharp enough.

  9. Window on Fly Delaminated

    Thought this tent was ok after a couple of uses. Only used a handful of times and unpacked it the other week in New Zealand customs only to find one of the windows on the fly had delaminated.....did not even think this was possible and unsure why. Anyway, I've tried to contact REI (original place of purchase) and they were of no help. Need to contact Kelty to see if they can help by repairing this problem.

    Tent drips water in rain in other sections, and also super annoying how the zipper always gets caught in the material when opening from the inside.

    Dissapointed with this product. WIll stick to REI next purchase.....
