Verified Buyer Reviewed by Big Bald Backpacker from Santa Cruz, CA on Monday, May 18, 2009
I'm impressed with the well-designed details of this tent--the included gear loft, well placed stretchable transparent panels at the top of each door, the additional velcro pole attachment points (that can be fastened after setting the tent up), ample outside guy points for adding additonal lines if...

    Just purchased this tent and used it for a 3-day canoe camping trip. Rained one of the days and all through the night. No water leaked into the tent. Additionally it is very light and easy to assemble.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by BTS PMAN from Seattle, WA on Wednesday, July 8, 2015
    I got this with a coupon for $108. At that price it is an amazing deal. But this tent should be thought of as a budget quality tent. If you use this tent in the rain, you will get a little wet. It wont be a lot. But its good to be prepared for if you're camping in a wet climate. The zippers on the rain fly leak. After a full night of rain I was getting a constant dribble on both sides of the tent. It wasnt enough to soak my sleeping bag. But I would be worried if I were camping for more than a day in steady rain. You will also get rain in the tent whenever entering and exiting. The walls of the tent are at steep angles. And the doors to the rain fly extend from the ground to directly above you if you're laying down in the tent. So if you open the rainfly door, any rain will fall directly into almost the center of the tent. Unless you have a vestibule, getting rain inside your tent when opening the fly is almost unavoidable. But its good to be aware of.

    The interior of the tent feels much smaller than the dimensions say. I have a 3-person, 4 season tent, that has smaller listed measurements than this one. But this tent feels much smaller inside. It could be from the steep angles of the side walls making some of the floor space unusable. There is still plenty of space for two people to sleep comfortably. But I was expecting more space after reading the specifications online.

    With all of that said and done. This is still a great tent for the price! It's a great summer tent with its all mesh walls. It's fairly lightweight. And unless you're going to be in it for long stretches of rain, you will enjoy it.

    Beware that this tent is tapered on the footprint. Accommodates a double mattress easily at the head end, but not at the foot end. Had to return it.

    Love how easy it sets up. Very light, would make an excellent pack tent for two people.

    On a recent trip, I found out that the rain fly zippers were not sealed properly and they leaked the whole time. I had to drape my rain gear over so I didn't get completely soaked. It is nice and roomy, but I would not suggest it for 3 people. It was hard enough for 2 people with minimal gear. Also, the zipper on the rain fly is very hard to get to the outside corner of the vestibule. This part of the tent needs serious improvements. Everything but the rain fly was fantastic on this tent. I purchased the Kelty TrailLogic TN3 Footprint to go with this tent since the ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 3 was out of stock everywhere. They are the same dimensions, weighs less, and worked well with this tent.

    Easy to set up, a bit heavier than expected but good tent

    • Answer The brown triangle on the front of the rain-fly is a vent, but it is not adjustable.
      Answered on 8/20/2012 12:00:00 AM by Prod. Spec. Ryan from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer This tent has two vents. One is under the brown triangle on the side of the fly, above the ALPS logo, visible in the picture. That is a screen section, and is "adjusted" (if you can call it that) by the angle at which you guy out that vent flap. Guy it close to the base of the tent, not much airflow through that vent. Guy it farther out, more airflow.

      Vent #2, and really the primary vent, is on top of the fly, in front of the brown triangle on top of the fly. This is a standard "velcro stick" type vent, and is adjustable.

      Overall, you're going to have zero issues with airflow and condensation if you guy this thing properly. And that's from someone who has camped nearly a dozen rainy nights in the humid southeast in this exact tent.

  • Question “What footprint would you recommend for this tent?”
    Asked on 8/18/2011 12:00:00 AM by Kim from Chicago
    • Answer It really depends on your budget, if your broke a 10$ tarp will work wonders.
      Answered on 8/23/2011 12:00:00 AM by Anonymous from none
    • Answer You can use any footprint as long as it is slightly smaller than the floor of the tent so water doesn't pool on the outside of it.

    • Answer They make one for this tent. It is called floor saver.

    • Answer I just did a search online, and found many other online stores carry the footprint for this tent. I wish Sierra Post Trading did because I'd rather order from them. Here's where i found mine on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountaineering-Zephyr-Floor-Saver/dp/B003GXUYLS
