Kelty's new for 2014 TN 2 tent has been named a Backpacker Magazine Editors’ Choice Award winner in recognition of its outstanding comfort, performance, and unique Stargazing Fly.
A member of the highly functional 2014 TraiLogic collection, the TN 2 is part of a broader Kelty initiative to make the backpacking experience hassle-free and more enjoyable. The complete line of intuitively-designed TraiLogic packs, tents, sleeping bags, and sleep pads offers lightweight organization and seamless performance for anyone looking to get more out of the backpacking experience.
“Backpacker Magazine has a team of knowledgeable and experienced gear editors who test volumes of outdoor equipment each year, so receiving this award is truly a great honor,” said Steve Nadler, VP and Brand Manager for Kelty. “We designed the TN 2 to be light, durable, and innovative to give backpackers an easier, more enjoyable backcountry experience. Winning this award tells us we hit the mark.”
To save space inside your pack, the Kelty TN 2 tent features shorter, more compact poles and a ‘Tent Cube’ stuff sack, both of which allow effortless compatibility with Kelty’s TraiLogic PK 50 pack’s dedicated tent pocket. This tent also boasts the Stargazing Fly feature, giving you a view of the night sky while allowing you to deploy the fly in the event of rain without ever leaving your sleeping bag.
“Backpacker Gear reviews set the benchmark by which all others are measured,” said Dennis Lewon, Editor in Chief of Backpacker Magazine. “That’s because no other magazine or website conducts field-testing as rigorously or impartially as the crew led by our Gear Editor Kristin Hostetter. The result? Best-in-class reviews that lead consumers to best-in-class gear.”
Since their inception, the Backpacker Editors’ Choice Awards have come to be regarded as the most sought-after award for outdoor equipment and apparel found in the industry. All award winners must excel under extensive field-testing conducted by Backpacker’s team of editors, who take hundreds of new products every year into the backcountry to put them to the test.
