Default Kelty TraiLogic TN2 Tent ?

Is there anyone here use Kelty TraiLogic TN2 Tent? if so, what's your opinion about that tent?

I am thinking to buy this one instead of buying MSR Hubba Hubba Nx Tent. it's backpacker editor's Choice 2014

A friend of mine just ordered this little while back. We have a couple trips scheduled together in May and he should have it by then I'd think. I'll pass along any info/thoughts.

I don't have any first hand experience with the tent, but it does look like a very good design. I'd buy it.

I bought it, set it up at home, love it but haven't used it outdoors yet. Soon!

No experience with this tent but...

Kelly is generally well regarded . REI stands behind their stuff. Double vestibules make a lot of sense for a 2P tent.

But it's 1.9 kg. I think you can do better. The Tarptent Double Rainbow has slightly more space and it's only 1.2 kg. I love my Tarptent Moment and my friend picked the DR. So check it out.

It might not matter to some here, but for my sleeping pads it does....
It has a tapered footprint, which does not allow me to fit two Neo Air's side by side. The Hubba Hubba still has the regular footprint. Other than that and a bit extra weight, it looks like a pretty sweet little tent. Good luck with it, and please fill us in after you've used it a bit.

Good Day.

Thanks all for the inputs!

Hi,Kobracom,

I just checked the tent floor plan, it should be fine fitting 2 sleeping pads, e.g. we are using EXPED DOWNMAT UL 7 SLEEPING PADs which is 183cm in length and 52cm in width.



are you using the large size Neo Air? Thanks!

Hey MazeGirl,

Yeah the Neo's I own are the large ones. In the green Hubba Hubba, two of my Neo's take up the entire width of my tent, and there is not even an inch of space to spare.

I only brought it up, because I almost purchased a tent without realizing the footprint was tapered. It's the price I pay for wanting so much bed haha.

Used my Kelty TN2 tent outdoors this weekend and was very happy with it. Easy set up. My friend and I had a "guest" join us and the 2 man tent actually fit 3 adults comfortably. We used the stargazing feature which is awesome but sure enough during the night it started to rain. We were able to bring the fly down without having to get out of the tent. I guess my only concern after having used a Hubba Hubba is the weight difference - we were car camping tho, not backpacking so... should be ok for the backcountry and the vestibules on each side are smaller than the Hubba Hubba. Truth is I like both tents but for summer I'll take the stargazing feature over the non star gazing feature any day. So there's my review. Probably not ideal for camping in the snow (which was done with the Hubba Hubba) and not sure about setting it up in the rain.

So which one did you buy in the end?

I am in the position now, trying to replace my 10 year old tent and pondering between the same 2 tents
