Detailed Overview

When heading off on a backpacking trip you cannot go wrong choosing the Kelty Salida Tents. You get the best possible value, the price is fair, durable material, and lightweight for easy travel. There is not much else you can ask for when choosing a backpacking tent.

Looking at this tents durability, we know it can handle the tough and the rough. The material used is 68D Nylon and 68D Polyester. On the floor of the tent , 68D Nylon is used. The reason for this is nylon is known to be softer and stronger, and when placed between the ground and a persons weight it must be durabble. The walls consist of 68D Polyester and 40D No-See-Um Mesh. Using polyester is very waterproof, while the No-See-Um mesh is installed for breath-ability. Lastly, the rain-fly is also made with 68D Polyester which is extremely waterproof; it will keep you dry.

My favorite part about the Salida tents are the easy setups. After a long day hike into the wilderness its nice to know within minutes your wonderful Kelty Salida tent is going to be up, no frills.

This award winning tent will easily keep a smile on your face, having such a large camping space at such a lightweight, there is no room for complaints. Pack it up, and head off into a simple and adventurous journey.
