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 2 was something of a talking point 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 high quality Wild Country Superflex alloy poles 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 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.
The latest update of the popular Zephyros tent sees a reduced pack size and a fabric of Pu Polyester. 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.
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.
