  • A quote from the 2011 Backpacker Editors’ Choice awards:
  • “Tents tend to seesaw between weight and price: As one goes up, the other goes down. The light-load, low-cost Salida 2 turns that equation on its head”
  • With over 10 ft. of vestibule space and a spacious interior, this tent offers a comfortable backcountry escape
  • Freestanding design with color-coded clip construction is easy to set up and maneuver around
  • Mesh walls encourage good cross-ventilation
  • DAC® Pressfit aluminum poles offer durability and longevity
  • Polyester rainfly won't sag when wet; adjustable webbing/side-release buckles attach rainfly to tent
  • ArcEdge™ catenary floor/wall design keeps seams off the ground and watertight; taped seams ensure weather protection
  • Kelty Salida 2 tent features internal storage pockets, gear loft loops, noiseless zipper pulls and multiple guyout points
  • Includes stuff sacks, guyline/tighteners and stakes
