UOG TOP PICK - Wild Country Zephyros Tents - Best for Lightweight Value - We've singled out Wild Country's Zephyros series of tents because they represent excellent value for money and deliver a pretty lightweight shelter to an established design.
The Zephyros 1 created something of a buzz when it was first launched and it`s easy to see why. The tried and trusted single pole tunnel design has proven itself over the years and is a popular style with weight conscious backpackers and adventure racers. It uses Superflex alloy pole and tried and tested Wild Country high performance flysheet and groundsheet fabrics.
Based on an existing highly successful and award winning Terra Nova design (The Laser series) the single poled Zephyros tent gives sturdy resistance to bad weather whilst also offering relatively spacious sleeping and storage areas. The tent pitches flysheet and inner together for speed and simplicity and features mesh venting for comfort.
Groundsheet protectors to prolong the life of the tent and help keep it clean can be purchased separately.
Based on the Terra Nova Laser tents, the latest update of the Zephyros tent sees new collapsible end poles, helping to reducing the pack size. The fabric is a Pu Polyester with the tent having completely taped seams, so no need for the pole hood cover that is needed on the Terra Nova laser tents. This tent has just got better - A great value for money solo tent.
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.
