We've owned this new style of the trail ridge 6 since it come out. We've camped in several storms but nothing like Memorial Day weekend this year where we had two storms come through Saturday night. First downpour started at 8:00 pm that lasted about a hour. Many peoples tents didn't survive the first storm, and soaked their sleeping gear. Leaving them sleeping in their cars. We had to move the Trail Ridge back because of standing water getting up to the tent. 2nd storm started at 11:00 pm and lasted several hours dumping around 3" of rain. At 5:00 am we were woke up by fire & rescue evacuating everyone because of flash flood coming into the campground. The river come up close to 10' feet since the storm started flooding the local town, and peoples homes. The Trail Ridge 6 held up great through the storms keeping us dry. I couldn't be more happy with this tent!

We used the Trail Ridge 6 tent this past weekend and it performed great in stormy conditions. We had intermittent heavy rain and occasional gusting winds. My family of 4 was cozy and dry in the tent. The rain fly wasn’t flapping all night (we did stake the guy lines) and everyone slept great.
This an awesome sized, family car camping tent and is a huge upgrade over our last tent, which did not have a complete rain fly and inverted in heavy winds. This one is very intuitive to set up and is no nonsense solid. The interior pockets and gear loft are a nice bonus. And included foot print works great. This tent is not real light but it can legitimately fit 6 people, 4 is better with lots of room for gear. The double doors work smoothly and the double vestibules function great for storing shoes outside, everything stayed dry. Highly recommended and I am looking forward to purchasing the Trail Ridge 2 for my solo adventures or camping with 1 kid.
This my first Kelty tent and is the same high quality as the sleeping bags and Noah’s tarps that I have used for years. Idaho Mike on May 31st 2018
We put up our tent for the first time so we could do it when we go camping. I am so glad we did. We left for town for an hour and the wind picked up to 20 mph (which is virtually nothing for here) and it rained a little. When we got home a pole had broken and the tent was partially down. I am very disappointed in this tent. I did a lot of research before I purchased it and had high hopes. Would rate zero if I could. Unknown on May 29th 2018
The set up on this tent was easy - directions better than most but could still be improved. The tent was tall enough to stand and change clothes in (at 5'8"). Handy pockets. The footprint is great and it makes it easy to set up. It wasn't even too hard to move by myself once set up (when I realized I was on a slope). Handy pockets everywhere inside for stuff and the light pouch by door was very handy (watch the video). I am a fit/normal sized person and I think about 4 of me could very comfortably sleep in this tent with a smaller bag each. Susan on Aug 4th 2017
I was tired of using backpacking tents for car camping and not being able to stand up inside. This tent is a great size and easily accommodates a standing adult. Setup is incredibly easy. Only used once so far but no issues with weather worthiness. Very wind resistant. Andrew Steinbrecher on Jul 1st 2017
My wife and I have retired and head to Florida every winter but RV life doesn't suit us so we spend the month of January paddling Everglades National Park. Camping sites are few and far between and involve beaches, ground sites and "chickees", which are roofed 10x12 wooden platforms.
The advantage of the rain fly design became apparent on our very first day. The bugs were too thick near the trees so we were forced to camp on the beach. We set up the tent with the back toward the hot sun and used the rain fly as shade. At 4am the skies opened up and it poured. It took only seconds to unclip the rain fly and pull the front of it down. A few hours later it rained again, accompanied with 20-30 mph winds. Even though the sand didn't allow us to properly stake out the tent it still held up well.
A month of hard use and daily setup and takedown in less then ideal conditions allowed us a good chance to find out the tents strengths and weaknesses. In general, we really like the tent, especially the rain fly design, but had two problems. The rubber "handles" on the rain fly where it attaches to the corner clips came off two of the four corners, but it doesn't affect the performance. Another problem we had were with the end of the poles ripping holes through the sleeves when threading the poles. Perhaps the sleeve material could be heavier since it happened twice.
I also made a canvas bag to hold the tent. Bulk isn't a problem for our canoes, but stuffing a tent into a small bag while being attacked by thousands of bugs is a problem when paddling the Everglades, so I made the bag with a 13 1/2 inch diameter rather than the 11 1/2 inch diameter of the original bag.

I went camping with a group who had the Kelty Trail ridge 6 model tent for us to use. My adult granddaughter is in a wheelchair and just does a pivot transfer. We put a cot in one doorway and ran her power-chair up and pivot transferred her onto the cot. Zipped the tent up and used second access for myself and others. Only complaint is we had no fly that would keep the rain out as we were transferring her. Could fix this up with an overhead tarp. Not sure how safe it would be to run the chair inside of the tent but may try it one day.
As my granddaughter is an outdoor person we plan on purchasing this tent for our own personal use and do more camping, now we know she can do it again. Easy tent to put up and take down even for me in my 70's. Best tent I have used. We did lots of tent camping using 2 & 3 person tents prior to her injury, so this space was a new experience for us.
