Weatherproof performance and great value

A lightweight combination of weather proof performance and great value, the Zephyros 1 Tent is ideal for the weight conscious backpacker or price conscious adventure racer.

Using the acclaimed Terra Nova single-hooped tapering tunnel design, with struts at the ends for best use of space (there's no point having it taper all the way to the floor), the Zephyros is streamlined to shed the wind as well as being very quick and simple for one person to pitch: all-in-one pitching and just the one pole to deal with means a minimum of hassle. The inner door is fitted with a mesh panel for effective ventilation, and the porch is easily big enough for storing your gear once you turn in for the night.

Great for One and baggage
Reviewed By Steven, 29 Jul 2014

I bought this because I wanted something lighter than the one I'd got but didn't fancy spending big bucks to get one of the 'named' brands. It's worked a treat and is great value for money. Most of all it's light and easy to put up - exactly what I wanted.

 

 

 
Perfect for 1 person and their gear
Reviewed By LJ, 12 Apr 2014

I bought mine from Cotswold in late summer last year. I wanted something as light or lighter than my old Vango solo tent but, more important, I wanted a compact pack size.

The Zephyros may be much cheaper than the well-known original designs which it emulates, but frankly I would keep the Zephyros now. It seems as tough as any tent I've ever owned, and at this price you don't mind it getting the odd little scratch or nick.

It stood up to some pretty strong winds and sideways rain when I took it to Dartmoor for a week of backpacking, and answered my need for fitting neatly in a 45 litre rucksack along with everything else I needed for a week of wild camping.

No leaks, no condensation due to the well-ventilated design, strong and stable and simple to erect, plenty of room for all my kit in the vestibule which can also be used for cooking at a pinch (with the door open.

The only flaw in the design I found was that there is no way to practically tuck the fly door out of the way if you want it left open. I simply attached a spare long guyline and looped it over the tent to a peg on the far side. The headroom lets you sit up easily and I think you could actually sleep two good friends in it.

Next to my hammock it is now my favourite portable hotel and, for a practically treeless destination like Dartmoor, would be my first choice every time.

The fifth star is missing only because it is possible to buy a tent that is both lighter and more compact, but expect to spend more than twice as much.

 

 

 
Lightweight but strong
Reviewed By Julian, 22 Sep 2013

Needed a lightweight tent but strong enough to use in the mountains... this fits the bill. Get the adjustment right on the end guys/poles and it stands well in the highest winds.The lighter versions of this tent are made of thinner material and I don't think would last on rough mountain ground...the Zephyros 1 is a good compromise.Plenty of space for one and nice and cosy for two ! The central zip door makes entry easy with the inner tent zipping up to make it 'midgie' proof. I remove the small poles which allows you to pack it in any rucksack and it only takes a few seconds to refit them when pitching(I've put a band of white tape round each pole to help find them , if dropped in the dark).

 

 

 
excellent value for money
Reviewed By kieran, 24 Jun 2013

This tent is pitched quite differently from most others so it took a few attempts to get it right,once up it was sturdy in the wind and withstood heavy rain.It is big enough to get your rucksack inside (if it is dry),or you could store it in the porch if wet.If you are much over 5 foot 10 you will struggle to sit up in it,and the inner will drape on your head when lying down,although there is good clearance between the inner and outer so leakage is not a problem.On close examination it is well constructed the only downside being the pegs which are not only very easily bent but have edges around the top sharp enough cut your hands,I have since replaced mine with some titanium ones from Alpkit.Its best to remove the 2 small end poles and stow them with the other poles when carrying the tent in a rucksack as this allows you to carry the fabric in a dry bag much more compactly.You would be hard pressed to find a another tent as good as this and as light as this at such a reasonable price.

 

 

 
Very good value for Money
Reviewed By TOM, 21 May 2013

Good small lightweight tent. I got this for Wild camping and multi day walks and it has not disappointed. It is light, and packs away to a good size to fit into a pack. I have tried it in temperatures below 0c, and strong gusts of up to 60 mph and strong rain. It survived both. The tent pegs are a little weak and I would recommend buying different ones, there is also no real way to keep the porch door open. But it is a good size. I'm over 6ft and I fit comfortably into it, but can't really sit up in it. The porch is a good size for your kit and wet gear.

Overall I don't think you can go wrong.
