I love solo camping, but it’s really difficult to find a 1-person tent that is going to perform as good as you want it to. That’s why I’m writing my very own Kelty Salida 1 Tent review, to discover the true quality of this product while providing my honest opinion on it so you can see whether it is right for you or not. Basically, so no one has to wake up in the middle of the night with their tent full of rain water! Not Enough Ventilation! Functionality Waterproof Strength Value Summary: This tent is lightweight and capable of keeping the rain out. However, if you don't want condensation getting built up inside of it, you're going to need to keep the rain fly off - but then you'll risk getting rained on. It is entirely up to you, but this tent is a much better option.. 4.0 Kelty Salida 1 Tent Pros Cons There is plenty of interior space for the taller/bigger campers who want a solo tent that doesn’t make them feel claustrophobic Many users have found it to perform exactly as advertised, which is to handle days of downpour while keeping you bone dry Very lightweight and compact, and I believe these are the main reasons as to why this tent has received some good feedback over the years It can literally be set up and taken down within minutes, as long as you’re an avid tent pitcher and know what you are doing It has been known to withstand high wind conditions of up to 40 MPH No vents on the rain fly may cause this tent to be extremely hot in the summertime Internal condensation is a problem with this tent. It’s known to get built up with the rain fly on because it sits close to the body. People are saying to fold some of the rain fly back to promote more air flow The vestibule room is extremely small, you’ll be lucky to fit all your gear in it price-button Specifications Product name: Kelty Salida 1 Tent Cheapest place to buy: Amazon.com Color: Grey/Green Size: 1-person Rating: 3-season Minimum Weight: 3 lbs. 6 oz. Packaged Weight: 3 lbs. 14 oz. Center Height: 3.6 feet Floor Size: 7.1 x 3.1/2.4 feet Floor Area: 20 Sq. ft Vestibule Area: 6.5 Sq. ft Packed Size: 11 x 14 inches Quick Overview Kelty have taken the minimalist approach with this 1-person tent. It is on the lighter side of solo tents, which is why this one is best used for backpacking rather than camping. It contains a spacious interior so you can move around the tent (toss and turn) without feeling like you’re going to take entire the tent down. In addition to all of this, the walls are a lot higher than usual, so you can have the best comfort possible while you are out camping in the wilderness. The freestanding design and color-coded clips make this tent really easy to set up. And just like most tents, this one also comes with internal storage pockets and gear loft loops. However, and sadly enough, the gear loft is sold separately. Key Features Compact Folding Poles – These folding poles allow the tent to be compacted down to a small package so it’s easier to go backpacking with Roll Top Cube Carry Bag Mesh Walls For Ventilation – Okay, so it does have mesh walls to provide adequate ventilation. There is roughly 40% mesh material, which is located on the top of half of the tent. Also, the bottom half of the tent gives you privacy just in case you want to remove the rain fly Kelty Salida 1 Tent Without Rain Fly Advanced Waterproofing – Kelty always provide the best rain protection, and that is the same with this tent. They have gone and fully taped the seams, while they have provided this tent with the ArcEdge feature as well, which is designed to LIFT the seams up off the ground to stop ground moisture seeping through and into the tent Kelty Hug Clip – Keltys unique hug clip design allows their tents to stay standing in high winds, and as a lot of users have claimed, it performs admirably well in strong wind conditions Noiseless Zippers – I don’t find noiseless zippers to be that great if there’s only one of you sleeping in the tent, but I guess they still work fine, and just another great feature that this tent provides What I Find Interesting What caught my eye the most was actually the amount of interior space this tent provides. The center height is higher than most solo tents, AND it’s wide enough to fit bigger campers. Also, I couldn’t believe how light it is due to the price of it, but it is definitely on the lighter side of solo tents – for this price bracket anyway. Who Should Buy This Tent? The Kelty Salida 1 Tent would work great in the summertime since you can just remove the rain fly and have maximum ventilation. Kelty Salida 1 Tent Angle View It doesn’t offer the best air flow, so you’ll get condensation built up if you keep the rain fly on. And that is why it is best used for summer – because in the other seasons, you’ll be way too cold. So if you are DEFINITELY using this tent for the warmer months, then you can enjoy the benefits that it offers. But if not, this one is much better because it provides a lot more ventilation. Best Place To Buy? Amazon.com is the best place to purchase the Kelty Salida 1 Tent, and that’s because they offer the best deals/prices. The 30-day return policy is by far my favorite out of all of them. You can send the tent back for a full repair if you notice any defects on the product within those first 30 days. Furthermore, even if you don’t like the tent (if it wasn’t up to your expectations), you can also get a full refund!
I give a quite high rate to Kelty Salida 1 tent, and the main reasons are the price and the material quality.
