Offering exceptional room for your head and shoulders, the 3-season Kelty Far Out 3 tent offers you an unobstructed view of the backcountry if you peel back the protective rainfly. Budget friendly and easy to set up, this versatile tent can take you backpacking or camping, and includes a footprint for added protection and value.
The tapered tent measures 85" x 70.5" (at its widest point), with a peak height of 43 inches. The interior space is 39.64 square feet. It has two vented vestibules, which together protect over 20 square feet of real estate.
The tent is supported by lightweight aluminum poles. The setup for this tent includes two hubbed poles and one ridge pole. The pole structure creates steep side walls so that you have more usable living space in the tent, instead of just a peak in the center. There are internal storage pockets including a ceiling pocket.
The floor of the tent is 68D polyester with a 1500mm water resistant rating. No-see-um mesh walls provide ventilation and keep out unwelcome guests. Two doors provide flexibility; each camper can have their own doorway and vestibule or you can dedicate one door and vestibule to storage while keeping the other clear. The freestanding design means you can pitch the tent and then move it around to find the best site. The rainfly is also 68D polyester rated to 1500mm. All seams are tape sealed to further ensure weather protection.
The standout feature of this tent is Kelty's popular Stargazing Fly system. This arrangement lets you quickly and easily roll up a portion of the rainfly. Secure the rolled fly with simple clips and you're free to enjoy a view of the stars and reap the benefits of increased ventilation. If the weather changes or you want more privacy, simply unclip the fly, roll it down and secure it to the tent corners.
The Kelty Far Out 3 includes Kelty's Shark Mouth stuff sack, designed to make stuffing easier, and pre-attached guy lines. A compatible custom-fit footprint is included to further protect the floor of the tent from sharp objects mud and ground water.
