The Trail Ridge is back and better than ever for 2016. With a long footprint, night light pockets, and the Stargazing Fly, the Trail Ridge is more like a palace than a tent. What hasn't changed is the livable space within the Trail Ridge. Near-vertical walls provide more chill space, while dual-doors offers convenient entry/exit without having to climb over your backpacking partner. Two vestibules provide convenient gear storage protected from the elements. The backpack-friendly compact folding poles and roll-top cube carry bag are sure to make this your favorite backpacking tent.

  1. Solid tent

    I like my new tent; very spacious and love how much netting is stitched into the tent. Also like how it comes with a ground cloth and the ground cloth attaches itself to the tent. So you know it is coving the entire floor of the tent.

    Would like to note, that I haven't used this tent in a real scenario. I have set this up in my yard and that's about it. My previous Kelty tent lasted me 15 years, hoping/expecting this tent to do the same.

    I do wish it came with a different bag. The bag is too big for the tent. Once packed away, you have extra space in the bag that isn't required. I AM going to be replacing the carrying bag.

  2. Quality, Lightweight Tent

    I bought this 2-person tent because I needed something smaller than my 6-person tent. I just used it last weekend and I am happy with this purchase.

    The tent is made of nice, quality material, is lightweight and was easy to set up. The directions were a little bit vague, but we figured it out.

    I like the two-door system which makes it easier to enter and exit the tent without bothering your companion. The tent is pretty compact on the inside, but a queen sized air mattress fits inside perfectly. Note: there is not much extra space after filling up the air mattress. We fit two adults and a large dog, but there was not room for anyone else, maybe a second small dog.

    Without the top cover, this tent is mostly made of mesh fabric which is very breathable, and great for summer camping trips in Arizona. Add the weatherproof cover, and you'd be set for a mild storm, not that I'd want to be out camping in those conditions.

    I would recommend this tent to a friend if they had similar camping needs.

  3. Inconsistant Manufacturing

    I purchased this tent with a foot print which was too long. Although the company sent a replacement it was even longer than the first? So it appears they have a real problem with the consistency of their manufacturing.
    I was VERY disappointed with customer service that only wanted more and more photos and basically said they didn't believe me.

  4. Tent bag

    I love this tent it’s amazing I love all of Kelly’s products I just really wish the tent came in a different carrying bag. Little difficult when backpacking. on Jul 26th 2018

  5. High Quality Tent

    I ordered this tent last month and have used it two times, once in hot and stormy conditions, and once in cold and windy conditions. The tent held up perfectly and we did not get wet once! Compared to tents I have owned in the past, this one seems more durable and has higher quality materials. I highly recommend this tent to anyone on the market! The wide mesh panel on top of the tent is also excellent for star-gazing. on Jun 8th 2018

  6. Awesome tent

    Love the space inside and easy 5 minute setup. A little heavy for backpacking, but it wouldn’t be a bad option either. on Apr 24th 2018

  7. Best value tent for the money

    I just received the trailridge2 on Friday and set it up in my backyard to check it out and test it this weekend . I knew we would have some thunderstorms and rain sometime this weekend here in Virginia. Im 6ft1 about 215lbs and i was really amazed at the space inside this tent . I also am empressed with the attention to detail and design behind the tent as far as functionality. I have plenty of space to sit Indian style in the tent with room to spare with height and this tent has plenty of space for two people maybe 3 adult in close proximity to each other sleeping or enough room for 4 people to set a circle and play cards. I think because of The way that the rain fly Can roll back and the doors being low to the ground would make it very easy to be in your tent and cook you something to eat outside. It's great that the polls the webbing on the tent and rain fly are color coded. The tent is easy to set up it has Velcro strips underneath the rain fly to wrap around the tent poles and thoughtful toggles in loops to hold the vestibule doors open. It's nice that the footprint and triangle gear loft were included and nice green cord for guying out the tent. I think the only thing I would possibly improve on the next model upgrade would be raise the arc of the tent poles about 2 inches So that the tent door zipper and the wall below it arnt almost touching the ground . But I know that the tent is on the footprint and the rain fly Will keep the tent completely dry. We had a real good downpour here and the inside of the tent stayed bone dry. So overall I'm very impressed with the tent especially the space where I give them an A+ . To me the tent seemed a lot lighter than I expected so it should be a good option for backpacking I intend on testing it out real well this year. Thanks Kelty job well done. on May 20th 2017

  8. Great "2" person backpacking tent

    I bought this tent with the intent of using it for my self. Thinking generally a 2 person tent is a good size for 1 person and gear. But this tent can easily house two people and gear especially if you keep bags out under the vestibule. It is still very light weight and stores nicely. on Jul 19th 2016


    We took out trail ridge 3 out this weekend and mother nature tried her best but we are dry and rested. amazing amount of wind and rain but our Kelty kept us dry. Very roomy for two people and gear. everything went together very quickly and without confusion due to the color coded system Kelty uses. Thanks Kelty for a great product. on Jul 10th 2016

  10. Great tent so far

    Love the tent so far. Easy to set up, and I love having the extra head room. It makes it so much more enjoyable having two people in there or even my dog. Rain fly kept all the rain out and tent has stayed comfortable. Can't wait to use it more and I'm definitely glad I picked the tent that I did. on Jun 28th 2016
