Gear Preview: Kelty TN3 Tent

The TN3’s full-coverage, sil nylon fly shrugs off downpours, and the full-mesh body and fly vents keep humidity and condensation to a minimum. Nearly 40 square feet of floor space—plus twin vestibules that add another 22 square feet of covered storage—keep three campers and all their gear out of the weather. We scored a dry night and clear skies on an early June trip, perfect conditions to test the roll-back fly and enjoy bug-free stargazing. When the rain arrived the following evening, Kelty’s easy-to-use clips and hub-style poles made for a rapid (and mostly dry) setup. 5.25 lbs.
