Kelty Gunnison 2.3

Stretch your dollars—and your legs.

Brand: Kelty

Model: Gunnison 2.3


What you get This simple, spacious Kelty tent with two large doors and double vestibules is great for tall folks who struggle to fit a lot of gear inside with them. The price can’t be beat for this much real estate, and it’s durable: The walls and fly are made of the same sturdy, 68-denier fabric as the floor, which stands up to abuse much better than lighter options. A full season of use by a Boy Scout troop produced no damage. Comes in one-, two-, three-, and four-person models.

Trail cred “It’s the perfect starter tent: big enough for car-camping comfort, but light enough to bring backpacking,” Nyquist says. “And it’s a bargain.”
