The Kelty Late Start 4P tent is spacious enough to accommodate a family and so easy to set up that you can let the kids do it. Its excellent ventilation, reliable durability, and affordable price make it a great option for 3-season camping or backpacking.
The tent measures 99” x 81”, giving you an interior area of 55.7 square feet. The peak height is 56 inches. There is a single vestibule protecting 9.14 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 4P Footprint (sold separately) can further protect your tent from wet ground, roots and rocks.
