The patented Kelty FlyBoy is a lightweight and simple solution to one of the last big ten problems; anchoring the rainfly to the underlying poles. The FlyBoy consists of a patch permanently affixed to the fly and a plastic clip that clamps the body, poles and fly together into a single, unitized self-reinforcing structure.


Wind tunnel tested, this Kelty proprietary Webforce technology, combined with FlyBoy, adds over 50% to the strength of the tent, while adding virtually no weight. Webforce consists of two parts. The first is the trusses at each pole sleeve intersection. These guide the pole through the intersection, easing set up, and eliminating any independent movement of the poles, strengthening the structure. The second part is the Webforce tendons on the fly, which lock stakeout points to FlyBoys, preventing any stretch or movement under even the heaviest winds.


As the first photochromatic tent window ever conceived, the Eclipse is in a class by itself. When hit by ultraviolet light, the window color tints as the intensity of the sun increases, regulating the temperature and glare inside the tent. Designed to function best in mountain environments, not only does the Eclipse prevent the tent from overheating, it also keeps hear from escaping once the sun goes down.


DAC Pressfit poles are used in all Kelty tents where strength is more critical than weight. The poles feature a ferrule that is pressed in, using an extremely precise interference fit to hold it in place. This system ensures that the poles will be strong and reliable for many years to come.
