Kelty Air-Pitch Tents, Get to the Fun.. Faster!

First off I should admit I’m not much of a camper. My daughter always wants to spend the night in the tent and I have spent many a Saturday afternoon dutifully trying to figure out which length of tent pole goes goes where, sweating and swearing, and fighting with the fabric, all for the privilege of being able to sleep on the ground, and wake up to the moist heat of the rising sun. Maybe if the whole set up wasn’t so annoying…

Well, just in time to save summer, I have found the Kelty Air-Pitch Tent. Forget the cumbersome and confusing tent poles, Kelty has replaced those traditional poles with nifty, inflatable AirPoles, allowing you to pitch a 2 room shelter with a storage vestibule, in just under a minute using the included high volume floor pump.  AirPoles provide all the support you need, and won’t bend, or break and snap you in the face like traditional poles. Yes, I’ve been there. Don’t want to feel it again. Ever.

Kelty’s 3 season tents are made from light, climate-friendly, and flame retardant polyester, have internal storage pockets, noiseless zipper pulls, a hanging sleep room as well as an enclosed floor-less vestibule for convenient storage. It has high and low fly vents to aid in air flow, and to help reduce condensation and the 2 sleep rooms are removable for added versatility. Kelty’s Mach 4 Air-Pitch tent dimensions are right around 120 x 108 x 74, and it will run you just under 400 bucks at Just add air conditioning, a fluffy queen size bed, and a flat screen TV, and I could get used to this camping thing.
