    Grand Mesa 2 Tent

    Coming in at a back-friendly four pounds, the Kelty Grand Mesa 2 Tent packs up small and lets you live comfortably in the great outdoors. The upper walls are made of mesh, so your tent stays well ventilated instead of smelling like the inside of your 7th-grade locker room. The fly and floor are made from polyurethane-treated polyester that is durable, waterproof, and lightweight. A color-coded clip and fly attachment system makes set-up a breeze, which is good since nobody wants to be fiddling around with sleeves and tubes and such after a 14 mile hike under the hot sun. With gearloft loops and internal storage pockets, you can make the inside of your tent more relaxation room and less dorm room.

    • 2-person tent for nights near the car or trail
    • Fly and floor treated with polyurethane coating to resist water
    • No-see-um mesh walls let you enjoy the view without bugs
    • 2 aluminum poles create a strong structure
    • Color coded clip and fly attachment is user-friendly
    • Vestibule keeps your gear out of the elements
    • Free-standing design doesn't require guy-outs
    • Item #KEL002Y

    Nice Tent!

      Easy to put up, easy to take down. Packs nicely in the supplied bag as well.
      The rainfly fits nicely, is easy to put on the tent, and creates a small area for your pack.
      Upper half of the tent is entirely mesh, nice when the weather cooperates!
      Comfy one person tent, but will hold two.

      Perfect tent for the price

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've had this tent for about four or five years by now, using it at least every-other weekend during the summer. I'm guilty of not using a footprint, and the floor still doesn't have any tears. (Don't be me, get yourself a footprint. The footprint, rainfly, and poles can set up fast-fly style, and save weight on UL trips.) The whole setup is super durable: zippers are fine, mesh walls and floor have no holes, poles still have elasticity, no stitching coming apart. It is SUPER easy to set up. I let my mom (who sucks at camping) borrow it. She got it set up quickly and easily without ever having used or been instructed on it.
      Overall, I can't say enough about the Kelty Grand Mesa II. For its price, weight, and durability, this tent does everything really well.

      Grand Mesa 2 Tent

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I purchased this as a gift and here is the feedback I have to share:

      "I was looking to buy a one person tent but decided on this 2-person tent as it looked like from the product images online that it would be the perfect space for both myself and my pack. This tent is easy to set up with two people but is not difficult to set up with only one person if need be. I have not used this tent yet while camping, but I am looking forward to taking it with me on an upcoming camping trip near the southwest later this year. I did not buy this tent with the intent to backpack with it as I would probably chose a tent that could compact down into a smaller size for my pack. This tent, however, is the perfect tent size and weight for camping use."

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this as my own personal tent years ago. It is economical and light weight. It has held up great over time. I have since gained an adventure partner and we have upgraded to a bigger all-season tent, but this is still my go-to tent for spring and summer backpacking. Also, my husband loves using it for backcountry hunting because of its weight. Excellent tent for beginner backpackers! My only qualm is its stuff sack, it is SO big! My solution was to sew my own with cinch down straps.

      Great ONE person tent

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I spent two nights in this tent with my twin sister, and she remarked that it was the closest thing to being back in the womb. So, definitely not a two person tent unless the two people are kids.

      However, for this one 5'4 person, the Grand Mesa is a lightweight and sturdy home base. I spent 3 months living out of this tent while leading trips in California. It's a great little tent for a great little price! There's room for me to sit up and stretch a bit, it does a great job of keeping the rain out, and it's a breeze to pitch. I can set up my sleeping pad on one side and my duffel bag on the other and not feel cramped. The materials feel substantial and the bottom stands up to rough ground. My only complaint with the design is that it's hard to get the front vestibule taut enough that it doesn't flap. I haven't had a condensation problem with it, and it manages to both stay cool on hot days and keep the wind out on cold ones.

      If you're a solo backpacker looking for a lightweight tent, it's a little bit on the heavy side to carry, but I don't suppose you can beat it for the price.

      Great tent! Buy the footprint, too.

        I love this tent. So easy to put up (no fuss), reasonable weight (depending on your pack needs) and love it for all the reasons others have stated here. Two person tents just work great for one person plus gear, to keep it all inside. Cozy for two people who really like each other (and you must), but that's the way it is with tent sizes. I camp with my German Shepherd inside. She loves it! Know your size needs (measure it out!) and what you want in features. Check the weight for your pack needs and go for it!

        happy camper

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This tent definitely exceeded my expectations. Not only is it a great price but it's real simple to set up and has held up great, I have had absolutely no problems with it and have used it on multiple trips. great tent, great value.

        Great quality great price

          I got this for kayak camping on the beach to look out at the stars. We did. It was great. Could be used for backpacking but I use a lighter set up. I just ordered the footprint because I think you can fast pitch it with the fly. That should be light and roomy. I will try to remember to write are view of the footprint if it does.

          Very Simple, Very Great

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I have a considerably longer review on, but here's the quick version.

          This is a very well constructed tent, with all of the features you need, and none of those that you don't. It is relatively light, and I would definitely place it in the ultralight category. The features work well, and the materials chosen by Kelty perform excellently.
          Condensation is a non-issue, as there is fantastic ventilation and a smart vent in the rainfly as well. I have definitely put this feature to the test, with plenty of warm nights spent in humid areas.
          The vestibule is great, and serves as a good shelter for at least 2 backpacking packs, along with some shoes and whatnot.
          I'm rather tall, and even though this is a fairly small tent, I am in no way restricted or uncomfortable due to the size.

          Love this tent!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I bought this tent for the value. I was not disappointed. I am 5'11" with broad shoulders and prefer space and to keep my pack inside with me. This tent setup so easily and fit me (1 person) beautifully. I would not recommend putting two people in it.

          What are the dimensions of the floor? I'm 6'4... Will I fit?
