Kelty Grand Mesa Tent

You're 4 hours into a placid hike with your bud when it hits you: neither of you wants to leave the majestic beauty of the great outdoors for another 24-hours. Fear of the office grips your heart, but you came prepared.

You whip out this rugged and compact tent from Kelty, assembling it in minutes. The only thing left to worry about is the 😴 layout: head-to-head or head-to-toe? 🤔
