Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day* by 5pm MT 9/2/15


Superlight and very compact for minimalist backpackers.

Weighing in at four pounds, the Kelty TN2 Tent has a surprising amount of features to keep even the most minimalist backpackers happy and protected from fall to spring. A stargazing fly rolls up and down quickly in case of a storm, and the tent cube packs the tent down to a minimum for more space in backpacks. The lightweight DAC Pressfit poles snap into the tent's color coded clips quickly, and Jake's Foot makes this tent freestanding.

Kelty constructed the TN2's walls out of no-see-um mesh for ventilation, the floor out of nylon for durability, and the fly out of sil-nylon ripstop to keep the tent as light as possible. Kelty also added PU coatings and taped the seams on the floor and fly for excellent water-resistance as well as abrasion-resistance.

The TN2 also features two oversize doors and two vestibules so backpackers don't have to climb over one another or share a spot for gear. Guyout points help set up the tent quickly, and noiseless zippers offer an undisturbed sleep on a breezy night. The TN2 also has internal storage pockets so everyone can remain organized for the entire trip. 

  • Sil nylon stargazing fly with PU coating
  • Nylon floor with PU coating
  • No-see-um mesh walls
  • Taped seams on floor and fly
  • DAC Pressfit poles with clips and Jake's Foot attachment
  • Two doors, two vestibules
  • 2-person capacity
  • 4 lb. trail weight
  • Color coded clip construction
  • Guyout points
  • Noiseless zippers
  • Internal storage pockets
  • Tent cube stuff sack

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Easy to setup and seems to be solid tent... love the cube which fits into my smaller pack! AWESOME

Can you use just the rain fly with the optional footprint for lighter weight camping?

Hi Ada6170799,
My name is Adrian, and I work for Kelty. We did not design this tent with a fast-pack option as you have inquired. The poles connect to the tent via Jake's Feet, which is a ball and socket type of interface. The connectors are on the tent body only, and the footprint clips directly to the Jake's Foot. It's a very clean and secure pole/tent/fly/footprint connection, but does not allow for use without the tent body.

Great tent for a great price!!

Just got my TN 2 in the mail today. Set it up in my family room immediately. It sets up fairly easy and has some really awesome features. It is a lot bigger then I thought it would be. The head space is generous and the interior is very livable!! It seems to breath very well. However I wish it had more internal pockets (a gear loft). But hey minor gripe and it is not worth taking away a star. It comes with a bunch of high quality 3 sided stakes so you dont have worry about breaking them on the first pitch. The guy line seems to be somewhat reflective as well. Overall this is a great tent. I would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Edit: used the tn 2 last night on lake lanier. The weather was perfect so I slept with fly off. Woke up in the middle of the night to clear skies. The stargazer feature is excellent on the tent. It was very comfy to sleep in and the floor seems to be high quality. I can't wait to hit the trail with it soon!!

Great tent for a great price!!

I currently have a North Face 2P tent but...

I currently have a North Face 2P tent but realistically I could never fit two adults in it. Is this tent a true two person tent or would it be better to go with a 3P in order to fit two adults without having to be jammed together?

Responded on

The TN2 2-Person tent will accommodate 2 people but it is a snug fit. If you are looking for a little more elbow room as well as some room for internal storage, I would recommending sizing up to a 3-person instead.

Will this tent accommodate someone 6'3"...

Will this tent accommodate someone 6'3" comfortably?

This should sleep you comfortably. You will have a solid 11 extra inches that you can stretch out in.

What is actual weight of full package...

What is actual weight of full package (preferably in grams)? "Packed weight" can be sometimes misleading :(

Best Answer Responded on

According to one website I found, they list the avg. min. weight as being ~1927g, or right around 4lb,4oz, and the avg. packed weight as being ~2183g, or right around 4lb, 13oz. Now, to be clear, that does NOT include the footprint from what I can gather, as they mention that specific piece is sold separately, so do not account for that in either of those weights ( Moreover, Kelty themselves list those weight specs identically, which makes me believe the foregoing site gathered their data from Kelty. Aside from all of that, if you were interested in purchasing the footprint for this tent, Kelty has it ( priced at $39.99, with a weight of 6.5oz, or ~184g.
Hope this helps.

Going camping MORE b/c of this

LUV this tent - fits into a cube easily, really! Plus the fly is great, easy to put down when needed.
