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...

    My first purchase from STP was a Zenith over 5 years ago. Almost all car solo camping, but with an occasional friend. Plenty of room for 2 with use of the vestibules. Did need to create my own foot print for it though. I am almost always camping at high altitude or along the baja coast and am susceptible to strong winds, and large changes in humidity or temps - blowing fog for instance. This ten t, when set up with enough tension, has very little wind flapping to keep you up at night, and the ceiling vents and the head and toe keep the moisture from condensing in the tent. I can even leave wet clothes hung up inside from the previous day activities with the vents and upper portion of the vestibule doors open and find them dry the next evening. It finally got minor damaged from improper storage. Good enough to buy a second.

    Easy to carry, easy to set up, easy to get in and out of. I've had this tent for a couple of years and used it for both camping and back packing. It is just the right size for 2 adults and their stuff especially with the two vestibules. I am getting older and quite creaky in the morning and really appreciate the two side doors and decent headroom. I've slept in this tent in coastal rain and wind without a leak and enjoyed the view of the stars with the fly doors tied back on clear nights.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Camping Ninja from Chapel Hill, NC on Monday, August 4, 2014
    First of all, this is a TWO PERSON tent. I mean, you'd need to be REALLY good friends to sleep 3 people in this tent. That said, I found this to be a great tent, especially for the price. LOVE the two doors! Allows each person to get in and out without crawling over each other. My son and I just came back from a mountain camping trip with lots of mist and one night of pretty steady--at time heavy--rain. Perfectly dry inside-yay! Also, the rain flap creates a little vestibule on each side where you can stow a small pack, your boots, etc. I put down plastic and put my pack on top of it and my pack stayed dry. This is important, b/c even with two people, there is not much room inside this tent for gear. I purchased the footprint separately for extra protection and to extend the life of the tent floor. Tent is easy to set up and super quick to break down and put away. Great purchase!

I have the 2 person alps tent but the extra space is amazing on this 3 AL.. the extra 2 pounds is well worth it...........Thanks Sierra....

  • 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.

    • 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
