From the Low Love Seat double camp chair to the Late Start tent and Cosmic Down sleeping bag, Kelty is a force to be reckoned with - a force that reckons there's no excuse for not getting outside and escaping from the mundane.
Founded by Dick Kelty in 1952 and based in Boulder, Colorado, Kelty has a long history of tried and tested outdoor equipment for camping and hiking. Kelty products are built to last - all without a hefty price tag. Their balance of great value and high-quality outdoor gear makes has long won the hearts and minds of outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
Their Redwing backpacking is the stuff of legends, a workhorse pack with a custom fit adjustment. The Cosmic Down sleeping bag range offers compact sizes and attractive pack weights across a range of seasons. The Late Start 2 tent weighs in at a fraction over 2kg making it a go-to shelter for trail addicts looking for that 3-season camping fix.
As a socially responsible company, Kelty ensures their equipment is made to the most ethical practices, both in environmental standards and worker protections. They follow a well-established Social Responsibility Program, having instituted their Code of Conduct in 1995, with continuous monitoring efforts throughout two decades.
To this end, they expect dignity and ethical treatment of all those employed in the production of Kelty products. The cornerstone of their program’s effectiveness is based on fair but strict enforcement, understanding unique factory operations, and working successfully with supplier management to facilitate process improvements affecting the worker’s quality of life.
In their own words:
The whole “work hard to play hard” thing is actually reversed for us. Here, playing outside is WHY we’re here. Kelty gives you the easy and spontaneous excuse you need to get out there and escape from the mundane. We build great gear that’s made to last and inspire you to rediscover the joy of spontaneous play. Every. Day.
