The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kelty Moosejaw 1P Tent Awesome quality construction and design by Kelty, but this tent weighed the same as my two person big Agnes tent. It is too bad but it is too heavy for a one person tent.
Date published: 2022-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapid setup Very happy with the tent, setup, and interior space. Vestibule is a little small for keeping gear dry. Only tent still standing in a field of tents during a storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great in a thunderstorm Took this backpacking and the first evening we got hit with a thunderstorm for a couple hours. the area where my ten was set up was flooding but the inside stayed dry. bit of a tight squeeze with your pack but that's any 1 person

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tent!! This is a great tent!! It is well thought out and constructed very nicely, it has strong reinforcements for the tent poles and strong zippers. Kelty knows what they are doing!! The packaged arrived on time with no issues and had a sticker that said “sealed with a kiss”! So thank you Moosejaw!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept me warm and dry through a storm I bought this for my first ever backpacking trip in the Sierras (Desolation Wilderness). Chose a weekend that was gusty and rainy, and this tent kept me warm and dry throughout. Not the lightest, but it was a great beginner backpacking tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly why I as looking for! Great 1person tent, easy set up, and looks stylish as well.one thing to keep in mind, I’m 6’4” and fit in it but any taller and you will be touching the side walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice tent. I bought the Kelty Late Start 1 for my 5 day Grand Canyon hike. It is very easy to put up and take down as well lighter than most others in it's class. It has 3 interior pockets to store your small items at night. I would definitely recommend this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really easy to set up I bought this tent for backcountry fishing trios. I haven't been out in the bush yet, but I set it up to test it out. I love it, its super easy to set up and light.

When this is packed what is the general size? I don’t see the specs listed for packed size.  Going on a long whitewater overnight in the big ditch and I’m not sure what to bring for sleeping quarters yet.  I can fill up one bils bag. 

Asked by: Brian
Hey Brian, thanks for the question! The packed dimensions of this tent are approximately 15" x 7" x 7", I'll make sure we get that information added as soon as possible. I hope this helps!

Is this free standing? Is there any ventilation once the rainfly is zipped down? Does it come with a footprint and if not, what is the weight of the footprint? Are there any pockets, lofts or tabs to attach a loft or items inside the tent?

Asked by: Last Minute
Hey there, thanks for the question! The Late Start is a free standing tent, zipped up it doesn't have the most ventilation from end to end, but the vestibules do offer some cross-ventilation. The footprint does not come included with this tent so I will leave a link for you to check it out down below, in the meantime I will also go grab the weight for that footprint. Sadly, Kelty does not have any gear loft attachment options at this time. I hope this information helps, and I'll be back with that footprint weight as soon as possible!

Hello, between this Kelty tent and the The North Face Stormbreak 1 Tent, what would be your go to tent? I like both, but this Kelty tent seems to be a bit roomier...

Asked by: Aminadab
Hey there Aminadab, great question! Both are great tents, but between the two I would recommend the Late Start. It does have a bit more square footage and in my opinion is built with a little more thought and efficiency in mind. I hope this helps!

I’m 5’9” 290lbs. Is changing in this tent difficult?

Asked by: RomanBuddha201
Hi RomanBuddha201, I suppose it depends how flexible you are! The tent is 36.5 inches tall at its highest point. I always think it's difficult to change in a tent I can't stand up in but if you are a Twister Champ it might not be so bad.
