My New Backpacking Tent: the Kelty Gunnison 3.1

Just a quick update on my backpacking gear:  I got my new backpacking tent!  It is the Kelty Gunnison 3.1 three person tent.  I was excited, because I got a great deal on it since they just introduced the new model version of it.  I paid essentially half price.

I just set it up in my living room and it looks to be a great size for me alone or for me and one other person, which is what I expected based on the dimensions.

Straight away I'm impressed with the quality of the tent.  The aluminum poles are very light and very strong.  Way lighter than my family tent's heavy duty fiberglass poles (my Cabelas Westwind Tent, which I previously reviewed and love).

The tent materials are high quality and I'm eager to use it and get the vestibule on it (there was not enough space in our living room, and we couldn't stake it down).

It weighs in at 6.5 pounds, which is great since I don't plan on doing ultralight, minimalist backpacking, but still want a pretty light tent.

Take a look:
