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. Great tent, terrible instructions

    Easy to set up. The instructions might as well not be included because they aren’t complete and don’t make the most sense. The tent, however, is very nice. Sets up quickly and easily. Very common sense set up and tear down. Warm for cooler nights, but can also vent for warmer nights where you want some breeze. Just enough bells and whistles to make this tent cool and useful. I would buy it again :) on Nov 12th 2017



  3. Easy to set up! Sturdy

    I'm a huge fan of this tent. I bought it last summer for me and my fiancee--it's perfect. We can fit our double sleeping bag inside along with our backpacks. The vestibles are perfect for storing our storage bins and chairs to protect them from early morning dew. It is super easy to set up; even in the dark! I love the stargazing options that it provides as well. on Aug 25th 2017

  4. Great Tent

    The color coding, for set up is very nice. It was helpful having the video to refer to for first time setup though. I look forward to using this tent for many years. on Sep 17th 2016

  5. Repeat quality Kelty

    Just spent two weeks backpacking and car camping in Colorado and Utah. This tent is high quality, with tight seams and smooth zippers. The 3 is roomy for two car camping, and light enough to carry moderate distances backpacking. This is a replacement to a 10 year old Kelty lightweight 6 person that my family of 5 back packed with through Alaska, California, Montana, Utah, Tennessee, Maine and most points between. Only replaced it because my 3 sons are grown and out on their own adventures and a 6 is too big. I absolutely LOVE the star gazing feature of the TR line. Was a deal maker for me. on Aug 26th 2016

  6. Not field tested yet!

    I opened it up at home but not in the field yet ! But as advertised very easy set up ! Can't wait to try it out ! on May 22nd 2016
