Review by anthonymancuso on Jan. 02, 2013
A friend owns this tent, and as I am a hammock guy, we usually share it on group trips. I'm impressed. It's literally light enought to lift with your pinky finger. I tried. Also, they call it a "3-season" but those terms are relative. Used in during a Northeast PA December thunderstorm and stayed dry all night. Didn't help for warmth though. A drunken nutless monkey could pitch this tent in a hurricane it's so easy.
I'm curious about the durability, I'm usually a lot harder on gear than my friend is, and I'd bet I'd kill it way faster than he is.
Eureka! for cheap, MSR or Mountain Hardwear if you want to step up.

Review by PACEAdventures on Jul. 07, 2011
The Kelty Grand Mesa 2 is a flagship for 3 Season tents- spacious design, high sides, and plenty of breathability even with the rain fly on.

I stayed dry, ventilated, and happy during an intense storm in the back country of Mammoth Cave NP and wouldn't hesitate to take it further.
The mosquito netting only works if it's not penetrated by field mice. I'd recommend a small mallet or glue traps as accessories if you plan on camping anywhere in the South.
Considering comfort, permeability, and price, this tent is the one to buy.

Cheap, good matrials, plenty of room for the most part. Can't go wrong with this tent. I got it for $100 on sale.
Great tent but small for 2 people unless you put gear in the vary small vestubule area. Little heavier than some other tensts of the same size.
Anything north face is worth it but this tent is great.

The tent is cheap (its main draw), and easy to set up. Setup is quick and since it has 2 poles, it is not rocket science.
I would like to have more than 1 door and vestibule, to store gear in the rain.
For more money, I would purchase an MSR tent. Other (better) choice is a hammock, which I have replaced this tent with.

Good basic lightweight tent. Not the biggest (or heaviest), but a great value. Easy to setup & take down.
Not well ventilated. Not the lightest. Not the smallest.

Review by alineville on Aug. 10, 2011
Super easy to put up. Great product for price. Relatively light weight.
As with most back packing tents, the 2 person fits only 2 people, and no gear. If you want to put your back pack inside the tent, size up.
I have yet to find anything this cheap that works as well.
