Awesome tent for the money

Super happy with my Zenith 2 from STP! I really wanted a nice backpacking tent but the prices were out of this word (and my budget). The Zenith 2 was probably half the cost of the next cheapest one I looked at, and one quarter the cost of most lightweight backpacking tents.

Others have covered all the details so I'll just say that this tent lacks nothing and gives great value. About the only thing that seperates this from tents in the $200-300 range is maybe 1-2 pounds and for that little difference I'll glady save a bunch of cash. This tent is still about half the weight of what I used to use!

I use it for solo tenting while backpacking. Just got back from a 4 day trip to Dolly Sods WV. Performed flawlessly, and even though it would not make a good 2 person it was great & roomy for solo use and could easily stow a pack and gear in vestibules, as well as my friends pack who's tent was too small for a pack.
