With color-coded attachment points and handy pole sleeves, the two-person Kelty Late Start 2P tent is a breeze to set up. It also delivers excellent ventilation and reliable durability at an affordable price.
The tapered tent measures 85” x 54” (at its widest point), giving you an interior area of 29.5 square feet. The peak height is 40 inches. There is a single vestibule protecting 7.85 square feet of storage space. The two aluminum poles are pre-bent to create extra room inside the tent. Pockets at each corner of the tent keep one end of the pole secure as you move around to deal with the other end. This prevents the common problem of tent poles jumping out of grommets as soon as you walk away.
The tent has a single door. The walls are No-see-um mesh and the floor is tough 68 denier fabric, water resistant to 1800 mm. Internal storage includes a ceiling pocket. The tent body is protected by a waterproof 68 denier rainfly. All seams are sealed to keep the water out. The freestanding design means you can pitch the tent and then move it around to find the best site.
This tent includes Kelty’s Shark Mouth stuff sack, designed to make stuffing easier. The custom-fit Kelty Late Start 2P Footprint (sold separately) can further protect your tent from wet ground, roots and rocks.
