  • Reviewed by Steve - Just getting back into camping/hiking from Dayton, Ohio on Sunday, August 11, 2013
    I am an infrequent camper, and I have only used this tent once, but it worked fine. I appreciated that the tent itself was made mostly of netting - so that when sleeping in very hot and humid conditions it allowed a breeze to flow through. Although it was raining all night, the rain fly kept the water out but the air flow was decent. There were no problems, but of course many more uses will be required to fully evaluate this tent.

    Went solo car camping for two nights in the Adirondaks.Tent was easy to set up,roomy for one and well made.My only concern in the future would be the zippers,so I took care when using.Also,this is not a three person tent..it would be cozy for two.It did not rain while I was there,so I can't report about that.

    Easy to set up. Like the two doors. Stood up well in a hail storm. Just right for two - would be a little tight for three. Need to remember to flip the door to the fly to the side before exiting after a rain so it doesn't drip into the tent.
  • Reviewed by Newbie Hiker from Minnesota on Thursday, July 11, 2013
    Takes about five minutes to set up and really kept the heat in (which was a good thing.) I am a five foot eight female and my boyfriend is six foot seven and we were both very comfy in mummy sleeping bags.

    My boyfriend stored it in his backpack over a five day hike and it was very light. It has openings on both sides and one pouch on the inside for eyeglasses, clock, watch, whatever. It is about 6 inches by four inches. We used the rain fly and that was super simple to set up.

    It may feel "delicate" as it is quite light but it is very sturdy. Not tall enough to stand in but I we don't camp to stand in a tent.

    When and if it restocks.....buy it! It is a great deal!
  • Reviewed by Octi and Squid from San Francisco on Monday, July 8, 2013
    As soon as we got this tent we set it up in the living room to check it out. It was a super easy setup, the tent is so light and you can tell by just touching it that the materials are quality. Can't wait to put it to use outdoors!

  • Question “Does this have a gear loft, or is one available separately?”
    Asked on 11/27/2012 12:00:00 AM by seagypsy from seattle
    • Answer It has a gear loft.
      Answered on 12/5/2012 12:00:00 AM by Prod Spec Kevin from Sierra Trading Post
    • 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.
      Answered on 8/24/2011 12:00:00 AM by Customer Care from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer They make one for this tent. It is called floor saver.
      Answered on 3/6/2012 12:00:00 AM by J from Burlington, VT
    • 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
