Kelty Trail Dome 6 Tent
For the price of an average weekend getaway you can own a great tent that can accommodate you and five friends for nine months worth of camping of the year. Kelty's dual-door, six-person Trail Dome 6 Tent is one of the best values you'll find in quality camping tent designs. Like the four-person Trail Dome, this tent is well ventilated, but this larger version has sturdy aluminum brow poles and two doors instead of one. If we had to look for a drawback, it might be that the Trail Dome 6 doesn't have a vestibule, but if you're car camping, you'll probably put most of your gear inside your vehicle. If the vestibule is an issue, you can use the Trail Dome 6 as a five-person tent with more than enough room for boots, packs and fishing gear against one of the four walls. If you have ever camped with a group of more than four, you're probably already aware that most tents grow exceptionally warm at full occupancy. Kelty's freestanding Trail Dome 6 offers exceptional ventilation with sidewall vents and a mesh ceiling, which works exceptionally well on warm summer nights (the fly also has vents in case you're worried about drizzle). The two DAC Pressfit poles are structurally rugged but slightly heavier than the ultra-refined tent poles that you usually find on higher priced tents. Above the door and back mesh window you'll find attachments for shorter aluminum brow poles that help keep rain from seeping inside the tent door whenever it's open. If you're looking for a big tent for a big group but you still need to cover funds for cooking supplies and other important gear, the Kelty Trail Dome 6 Tent is an affordable choice that doesn't stick you with cheap components.

Easy set-up, durable, would purchase another Kelty. Need two people for putting the fly on, unless your a tall person. Instructions could be clearer on placement of poles for the fly. Poles for the fly go in holes above the door on left and right side. The diagram is not clear on this, but overall, this is the best brand tent on the market. We just love it!!!

First class tent
This is a really great tent. Our family went camping in the Black Hills and enjoyed every moment. The tent was very easy to set up and provided enough room for four. Our Kelty kept us dry in pouring rain. Well worth the money.

This is the best price for an aluminum pole tent. Fiberglass poles are heavier and won't last as much over time. That's why you should get the DAC Pressfit poles included with this tent.

great for camping!!!
an ideal camping tent - whether it be with friends or family. on a clear, summer day (without the fly), it offers a view of the stars and the sky. the simple 2-pole design and clip-sleeve construction make this tent easy to pitch. the fly gives the needed protection from rain or from the cold. put it to test in the Catskills mountain.
