Overall Rating:

Kelty's Assault tent is a well designed, four-season, light-weight (5 lbs. 2 oz.)tent for solo or two people. However, the quality was very poor. Sent the first tent back because of a hole in the floor of the tent; and sent the second tent back for another hole in the floor of the tent, a section of the tent canopy sagged due to poor stitching, and the rainfly did not fit very tight. Not worth the sale price of $340.00, but definitely not worth the retail price of $450.00.

After sending the second Assault tent back, I decided to purchase a Moss Hooped Outland.
