About Kelty
Kelty has been building affordable, reliable outdoor gear since 1952, helping everyone--from the first-time camper to the experienced mountaineer--embrace the outdoor experience with confidence. Dick Kelty launched the company after years of making backpacks in his home or garage for friends, hand forming and welding each of the frames while his wife sewed the pack bags. The original Kelty packs included aircraft-aluminum contoured frames, padded shoulder straps, waist belts, clevis-pin attachments, nylon pack cloth, zippered pockets, and hold-open frames. Dick Kelty quit his carpentry business in 1956 to focus full time on Kelty Packs, and turned an old Glendale, California, barbershop into his first retail store and factory. In the ensuring years, Kelty expanded its product line to include daypacks, luggage, waterproof clothing, child carriers, jogging strollers, and more.

Kelty Hula House 4

The Kelty Hula House 4 is meant for a starting family and those seeking great shelter for under $380, including a separate footprint. Intended for those who enjoy car camping, it is light enough at 13 pounds to be split between two or three people for backpacking. I purchased one in June 2012 and now have used it for 51 camping nights at 17 different campsites in the Rocky Mountain States.

This four-person Kelty Hula House legitimately has adequate space for 3 people, and that goes for most 4-person rated tents. It has some features you expect to find in more expensive models, including color-coded coded webbing and buckles, locking pole ends with grommets, pole clips, sleeves, sealed seams and a patented ArcEdge floor model that raises the seams, instead of a bathtub design. It is a difference of about two inches of protection vs. the four or five inches that a bathtub design gives you.

The Hula House's pole structure provides sufficient head room up to 6 feet. The poles are DAC DA-17 PressFit aluminum of varying diameters, to save weight. A "hooped" or circular shock-corded pole helps maximize the interior space and gives it added strength and stability in the process. When in place the hoop is slightly offset, and pulls tent walls outward to near-vertical. With this addition, the interior feels absolutely huge in comparison to many other four-person tents.

Some say that hoop is easy to assemble, but after 17 places for camping, with set-ups and take-downs, tent pitching was not quite that effortless. The problem is with the 3rd circular pole. Once you have nearly completed assembly, it is that last section's ferrules must be joined together that causes some anguish. They just don't go together easily.

The tent is nicely designed, but the quality of materials and workmanship are not on par with design itself. To elaborate, velcro patches that attach the vestibule door partially came apart after one use. Also one of the plastic clips was broken when the tent arrived. I guess it means that plastic is not really of a high quality plastic you'd expect for this kind of purpose. Other than that, good size tent for two people. You can stand up in there, which was one of the features we wanted when we looked for a tent.
