SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Wireless 4 has two doors and a peak center height of 4' 11, which is a little bit less than the average height of the 134 other 4 person tents we have examined With 59 square feet of room inside, it is a little bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to three other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one are a suitable choice for campers that prefer spending heaps of time outside exploring the great outdoors.

Many of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part light, making them easy to carry around. In nearly all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, slanted walls a couple of poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can check out a list of the tent's pros and cons.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Wireless can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge plus.
  3. Internal storage. It is nice to see Kelty has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is easier to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. Breathable. The Wireless's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the summer.
  6. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the whole body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1800mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy rain.
  7. If you are looking for this particular tent, you are in luck it has been discontinued on the manufactures site, but is still available elsewhere.
  8. Available in other sizes. Kelty has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  9. Low price. It is a great buy for a 4 person dome tent that provides this much room. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $179.942

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 59 square feet, the Wireless 4 is smaller than quite a lot of the 134 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. No windows. With no windows it is not simple to keep the tent ventilated on a hot summers night.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Wireless 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of 68D Polyester, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. A tad heavy for backpacking. Even though the Wireless 4, looks like a small tent, it is not probably the best choice for backpacking as it weighs 11 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many qualities to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.2 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.2 STARS

Kelty's Wireless 4 tent is suitable for bicycle & motorbike camping. Here are a couple of other cool things not mentioned above which, we found and liked, while researching the model: Similar Style and build to the Kelty Outback, Two-vestibule construction for sweet storage space and Shark Mouth duffel for easy pack-up, cross-body transport.

With great ratings, and a minimum headroom of 4' and 59 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your own miniature apartment. This will enable you and up to 2 other campers to enjoy some delightful time exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can study above.

If you came to this website looking for suggestions about this actual tent, our view is, it should make for a good buy. In case you simply happened to land on this page while browsing for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent before, it is probably a good thing to look at a few other comparable tents also.

Value for money: When contemplating value for your money, this tent is undoubtedly cheaper than the usual cost of all the one hundred and fifty-four, four-person tents we have studied, this just by itself does not make it good value for money. We also need to look at other things in detail, as we do with each tent.

When we tally up the overall score of an individual tent, we study plenty of areas, looking for things where the tent could outdo other near-identical tents and where it is not quite as good. In this case, with a total score of 4.2 and the price info above, It is simple enough to spot that with a cost of $179.942 The Wireless 4 is a great purchase and fabulously priced when compared with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and capacity the tent offers were not compromised to arrive at a price tag unquestionably beneath the normal price for similar tents. It could make a remarkable choice for most campers searching for an adequate three-season dome tent to camp with, that should serve you well for years to come.
