Kelty Granby 6 Tent: 6-Person 3-Season


Product Details

The Kelty Granby 6 Tent is comfortable for the entire family thanks to its rich assortment of features. Doors at the front and back let your son slip out to use the restroom without climbing over you, and noiseless zippers help with everybody's undisturbed sleep. A roll-up mud mat helps keep your sleeping spaces clean and dirt-free. The liveable vestibule lets you and your spouse sneak away once the kids are asleep for some alone time, and you can either leave the mesh panels in the vestibule open to see the stars or close them if you two are feeling a chill. A back porch storage area frees the liveable vestibule and sleeping area from clutter. Kelty built the Granby's walls out of polyester with mesh panels for comfort, and both the durable nylon floor and the polyester fly have PU and DWR coatings to resist water and abrasion. The three DAC Hybrid poles slide through the continuous sleeves in a jiffy so you can get to the fun parts of camping with your family, and guyout points and adjustable stakeouts make setting the tent up easier than ever. A side-release lets you detach the fly from the walls quickly and simply if there's nothing but a starry skies overhead.

Large Tents Checklist

Cabin vs. Large Dome Tent. What to choose? Cabin tents tend to be larger and usually have one or more "rooms." However, large dome tents are not as heavy or bulky, and usually are easier to setup. If you do NOT need the extra rooms, I'd suggest considering a large dome tent.
Waterproof? Any tent worth's it's name better be waterproof on the bottom AND have a waterproof rain-fly. Why? Sleep in it once during the rain and you won't need to ask.
Many Cabin Tents Are NOT Freestanding. Unlike large dome tents, many cabin tents require many stakes and lots of rope to erect. Keep this in mind when shoppng around for one. Most tents shown on this site, however, are freestanding.
How Tall? If you are going to get a big tent, it makes little sense to get one that is "squat." Thus, for big tents, it's always better to get a tent that is comfortable...and comfortable means one that is tall enough to stand fully erect in.
