"A well proportioned, free-standing 2-person tent suitable for wild camping and campsite stays.
The Helm Compact 2 is a well proportioned, free-standing 2-man dome tent perfect for those looking for a little more space yet a compact pack size for easy carrying. The pack size measures only 32x21cm making it easy and versatile for packing into rucksacks or panniers. A good choice for medium duration backpacking trips where more space might be preferred.
There's plenty of headroom in the inner plus two decent sized porches for storing gear.
Suitable for 3 season camping, the dome style provides more stability than a single hoop 2person design such as the Zephyros 2.
Quick and easy to erect, the flysheet and inner pitch together with combined pegging points for the flysheet and inner.
The Helm Compact 2 has a mesh panel on both inner doors providing plenty of ventilation to suit weather conditions.
It's easy to pack away too with a side opening tarp style tent bag - simply roll the tent into the bag and pull tight.
A good choice for backpackers and campers looking for a roomy 2 person tent suitable for campsite stays and wild camping.
Key differences between the Helm Compact 2 and Helm 2:
Helm Compact 2 is even quicker and easier to pitch, new flysheet colour, yellow reflective guylines with cleat style runners, side opening tarp style tent bag, compact pack size (32 x 21cm), ventilation panels only on front and rear inner doors.
We recommend using a footprint which sits under the groundsheet and porch area to help prolong the life of your tent. A footprint for the Helm Compact 2 is available."

First time using freshairjunkies and I found them to be the cheapest (for the product I wanted) and also very quick delivery. Overall I’m very happy with my experience. 👍
Wild country helm compact 2 - could not find this cheaper anywhere else! Excellent price for a quality bit of kit. Not taken it anywhere yet but on initial, out-of-the-bag set up no problems or complaints. Kept updated with all dispatch information and product arrived when expected. Will definitely be using the company again, thank you!
Excellent service, with a speedy delivery.
Freshair Junkie at the time of purchase was by far the best on pricing too. I will certainly buy from you again in the future.
Quick delivery and it was the cheapest I could find the tent, albeit with a few additional things I also wanted.
Cheapest price I could find and speedy delivery. Not yet used but so far so good!
