ALPS Mountaineering Zenith 3 Person Tent

Reviewed by Old rider of the purple sage. from Pacific North Wet on Tuesday, July 2, 2013
This tent is a sturdy, relatively compact and well-made tent for the money. It's an easy set up, has ample room for two and a half people and their gear, large door openings (with cool little clear plastic windows), a large mesh area for ventilation and protection from mozzies, and seems as though it'd be alright in rain, though this was not tested on our first weekend away. The only quibble I'd have with it is a minor one, but that the shock cord poles have an additional 75mm end bits on the main struts which, when the poles are folded away, makes them that much longer and awkward to pack tightly, especially if storing them in a motorbike's pannier or backpacking with limited storage space. Otherwise, I recommend this tent for budget travellers or those who need a small, easy to set up tent.
