Zephyros tents represent excellent value for money and deliver a pretty lightweight shelter in an established design. This Compact version has an impressively small pack size making it ideal for backpacking, bikepacking and adventure racing alike.
Wild Country says:
The Zephyros Compact 1 solo tent provides a good combination of reliable performance with low weight and and great value. It's an ideal lightweight tent for bike packers and cycle tourists who have previously struggled with the packed length of solo tents, and backpackers and mountain marathon participants looking for a more compact packed shape to carry.
The latest update of the popular Wild Country Zephyros Tent sees an even further reduced pack size and a fabric of PU Polyester. The shorter pole sections have allowed the Compact version to come it at an impressive 30cm in length when packed. This allows the tent to be close in specification to Terra Nova Laser series, but at a more affordable price and without the need for the pole hood cover. This is a great value backpacking tent or entry level mountain marathon tent as it stands up to the elements really well through simple, functional materials and design.
This one person version is fairly spacious and in emergency situations it certainly has enough space to fit a second person in, albeit in a fairly snug fit. As a top tip, if you are struggling to get the flysheet completely taut when pitching, try loosening off the cords that attach the inner to the fly at both ends and re-tighten.
