Excellent Little Tent

Reviewed by ministercreek from Camping in Ohio's Wayne National Forest on Sunday, March 8, 2009
I realized I already posted a review for this particuliar tent but I finally got to take the ALPS Zenith 2 AL Tent on the trail. I did an overnight backpack trek here in the Wayne National Forest on the Archers Fork Loop Trail Thursday-Friday.

This tent holds up to strong winds. My campsite was high on a ridge where the winds were blowing hard all afternoon and night. The tent was very sturdy through it all. The all mesh tent body I really appreciated due to the fact the daytime temps were in the low to mid 70's for the entire hike. I welcomed those refreshing breezes.

The total weight of the Zenith 2 AL is a reasonable 4.8 lbs. Packs pretty small at 18 incles. I do appreciate the space this tent offers too. The perfect one person tent if you ask me. However, I feel it would be too small for two persons.

Definately get this tent. It is well designed, pitches quickly and holds up to the weather quite well. Forget those BIG name brands and consider the ALPS Mountaineering Zenith 2 AL Tent. You will not be sorry you did.
