DAC DA17 poles
DA17 pre-bent poles are made of proprietary aluminum alloy designed by DAC specifically for tents. By using this alloy, we get a large diameter pole with high stiffness, strength and durability at a cost only a little above inexpensive fiberglass poles. This makes for a tent that is less expensive than the Featherlite or Pressfit pole models, but still touts the durability, lighter weight and benefits of aluminum over fiberglass.
Color-coded clip-sleeve construction
Clip/sleeve construction eases the set up on larger tents where it would be difficult to reach the clips on the top or center of the tent. The clips connecting the poles to the tent are color-coded so set-up is easy and quick. The sleeves help increase the strength of the tent and the clips provide excellent ventilation.
A tent floor where the edges come a few inches up the sides before connecting with the tent walls. The ArcEdge floor is a great waterproof design because it has no seams in contact with the ground where water might seep in.
WTW (Water Tight Wall) construction keeps the doors and windows from leaking, even in driving rain. All exposed walls are constructed of coated fabrics with the seams shingled downward to shed water. Exposed windows and doors have wide flaps covering the edges so they CAN NOT leak at the zipper even in high winds.
All Kelty tents have aerodynamic venting systems to regulate temperature and reduce condensation.
Noiseless zipper pulls
Noiseless zipper pulls are lighter weight than standard zippers and they resist jingling when it`s windy.
Internal storage pockets
Mesh organizer walls, bookshelves and pockets keep everything tidy and right at arms reach when you need it.
