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 2 person tent offers a great combination of short packed length, low weight and weather-proof performance making it an ideal choice for cycle tourers and bike packers as well as backpackers and mountain marathon participants looking for a versatile lightweight tent 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.
The two person version is fairly snug for two but it certainly serves a purpose and this enables it to keep the weight at a reasonably low level. 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.
