Kelty Grand Mesa 2 Reviews

The Kelty Grand Mesa 2 two person tent received very positive ratings from people who have purchased one and used it. The online reviews are very good.  Some of the many comments from purchasers have been about how simple and easy it is to set up this tent.  Great ventilation and great performance in heavy rains were some of the other positive comments. There were also a lot of praise for how lightweight and sturdy this tent is.

On the flipside, there were a few complaints about the size of the Kelty tent. Some of the taller campers complained that this is more of a one man rather than 2 man tent as they found it a bit cramped.  There were a few comments about needing a footprint but from our point of view, that comment is raised about every tent that we look into.

Overall, the Kelty Grand Mesa 2 Tent is  in our opinion  a good small lightweight tent that will stand up to the elements under repeated usage. Keltys warranty is one of the strongest in the industry as they make a good product and stand behind it as well. We can safely say that if it is a Kelty product, it must be a quality product and we recommend it
