    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.

    Great tent, great design

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Roomy for its size. I'm 5'11" and didn't touch head or foot ends on tent. Used it 3 times and once in the rain. Rain fly did its job and no leaks, use all guy-out points. You will need to buy 2 extra tent stakes.

    Great tent design, slow kelty repair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The size is perfect for 2 even better for 1. having the stargazing feature makes it easy to react if it starts to rain. After a few uses one window on the fly de-laminated. I sent the fly in for repair in Feb 2016 and Kelty had it for 6 weeks. Way too long for a factory defect repair in the "off season". They sewed both windows to the fly and seam sealed them. I hope that lasts.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Everything is color coded so you know which way the poles line up with the tent and rain fly, however I always seem to end up turning the the rain fly around. The rain fly can be put up and down without getting out of the tent is a huge plus if the night all of sudden gets cold or rain comes around and going outside is the last thing you want to do. I do recommend getting a foot print since I've woken up to moisture between the floor/tent/sleeping pad. I've stayed dry inside on three separate trips with rain. As a two person tent it's great if you're comfortable with your companion. I've been able to sleep with a companion and our backpacks inside, albeit with about 12 inches of separation while laying down. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a tent that packs small and is very light weight. I was concerned about privacy with the full mesh walls, but the experience of being immersed in nature with nothing but a bug net between you is amazing. If you want privacy pulling down the rain fly is enough.

    Great tent for a great price!!

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

    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!!

    Kelty TraiLogic: TN 2

    Compact, well-engineered TN tents (2 and 3 person) set up quick and easy and boast a Stargazing Fly? for nighttime entertainment. Stargazing Fly? rolls up for unobstructed views yet clips down for full-coverage protection. Revolutionary snap-clip technology for effortless set-up. Compact pole folding size for easy packing (14" length) Telescopes not required.

    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.

    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?

    does this tent come with light weight...

    does this tent come with light weight

    stakes and a repair kit?

    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

    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.
