Its compact pack size and easy pitch design makes it a versatile tent for more than just solo backpacking.
Updated for SS21.
The Zephyros Compact 2 combines low weight, practical compact pack size and a weather proof construction, making it a favourite for backpacking, bikepacking and mountain marathons. Updated for 2021 with a new colour and end pole adjusters to help with pitching.
The previous version of this tent was Winner of the T3 Tent Awards 2020.
It’s a good choice for short to medium length trips - for longer treks for two or where you have a lot of gear, you might find a larger tent more comfortable.
If you’re heading off solo and want more space then this 2 person tent is worth considering.
The Zephyros Compact 2 has been designed for 3 season use and it’s great for wild camping as well as campsite stays.
For those looking for a tent that’s quick to pitch, this goes up with the flysheet and inner together and with connected flysheet and inner peg points it’s easy to peg out too.
Main and end poles are Superflex alloy and the pole set folds down to 30cm long.
Pegs are alloy ‘v’ angle to give a good anchor. The flysheet and groundsheet are seam sealed and made from high performance polyester to keep out the wet.
Several ventilation options are possible to manage air flow and help reduce condensation – there’s a mesh panel on the inner door and a further mesh panel (with covers) at each end of the inner tent and flysheet.
For convenience there are 2 doors plus one porch so no waking your companion if you need to get out of the tent in the night.
To help with visibility in the dark or low light, the main pole sleeve has reflective trim and the yellow guylines are reflective.
When it’s time to leave the tent rolls up into its generous side opening tarp style bag and secured with the drawcord.

Price and delivery were great. Just back from a few days bikepacking in some pretty windy conditions. The Wild Country Zephyros 2 man tent stood up to the elements very well but I could not seem to stop the outer tent from flapping noisily in the high winds. I need to address how to stop this somehow. Cosy and great little tent otherwise.
