ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 2 Backpacking Tent Design

Consumers looking for a high quality tent cannot make a better choice than the Zephyr 2 from ALPS. This product is ideal for camping during the summer when users want a cool breeze to lower the interior temperature.

All mesh walls bring users closer to nature and provide superior air ventilation throughout the inside of the tent. Consumers should not allow themselves to be fooled by its simple design. This versatile tent provides enough room inside to move around freely and sit upright without feeling like you are confined to a small space.

The support poles are made with the same lightweight alloy aircraft manufacturers use in their designs and two doors located at each end make it easy to access the interior. The design allows additional space to store gear.

Practical and Easy to Set Up

It takes just five minutes to set up this small tent. Pole clips snap conveniently onto the support poles for simple assembly. The interior sleeps one with plenty of room to move around. The space is big enough for two as long as occupants do not mind being shoulder to shoulder with limited room to spare.

The mesh walls make this tent ideal for warm nights and offer excellent visibility but this tent is also suitable for wet weather. The weatherproof seams provide excellent protection against the elements.

The interior stays dry even in wet conditions thanks to the floor made of 75D 185T taffeta material and featuring 2000mm coating. Water can access the interior if the user leaves the fly door unzipped and open to the outside. Fly buckles provide great attachment and users can rest assured they are secure.
