Comments about Screenhouse:
We purchased the Kelty Screenhouse to use for car camping as a replacement for an older screenhouse. Having had the same Kelty tent for almost 15 years, I had high expectations for the Screenhouse. Initially, I was very pleased. Set up is relatively easy, and although it is easier with 2 people, it can be done by 1 person. Construction is up to the usual Kelty quality, with DAC poles and well stitched seams. We took on a camping week in Nova Scotia, and that is where some of the limitations started to show. The week was very wet. The Screenhouse performed well under light rain, and the interior rainflaps on all the screens proved to be far more convenient than the usual flaps on the exterior. However, during heavy or prolonged steady rain, there were some issues. First, not all the seams are seamsealed. The main panels are tape sealed but all the orange seams are unsealed. This resulted in water penetration and regular dripping inside the shelter. Worse, the roof material became saturated. During heavy downpours, a mist would fall from the roof, and water would occasionally drip from the fabric itself. Also, as noted by other reviewers, water did pool on the roof as well. A pole placed on a picnic table remedied this (thanks to the reviewer who suggested this). We actually had to break camp a day early as a consequence of having only our tents to stay in (which stayed completely dry). To address the leaking, I have since fully seam sealed all the orange seams with Seam Sure and also coated the interior of the shelter with Tent Sure (2 coats - 4 bottles). I do realize this will make the shelter less breathable, but during good weather we would not be spending much time in it anyway. I am also going to try adding additional guying from the upper corner brackets to try to address any water pooling rather than using an additional interior pole. Hopefully, the above steps will remedy the issues we experienced during extremely wet weather. Even considering the above, I would still recommend this product but would further recommend anyone purchasing also take additional steps before using in the field.

Comments about Screenhouse:
I purchased several Kelty products last year, tent, Green River 4, Screenhouse medium, and Sunshade, medium. I use them mostly with my wife, but, once in a while the adult children and others join us for base camping adventures, i.e. biking, hiking, kayaking! The medium screenhouse can provide dining protection from rain and bugs for up to 10 in a squeeze and eight comfortably. My only complaint is that I thought there would be more headroom. But, this really does not affect the use of the product. Access is easy thru the doors on each side, everyone enters and sits down to the table and good times can be had! If it is cold outside, close the walls and enjoy, warm food and many persons soon insure warmth applenty! If it is raining the roof does a great job of keeping everyone dry. So, all and all I am very pleased with the medium Screenhouse by Kelty and have used it about 12 times since I have purchased it.
