Good For the Money

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Arizonan from Arizona on Wednesday, July 14, 2010
I plan on using this tent on Mt. Whitney in July--The tent is easy to assemble and feels sturdy. ALPs Mountaineerings use of an additional pole as a cross brace adds some of the stability other small tents lack. The lent is roomy for two but would be crowded for three (72"/3=24" per person).

There are some downsides--
I noticed several loose threads the first time I set up this tent. Additionally, the gear loft is so small that it is practically useless--It is detactable and I will most likely not be taking it to Whitney.
Although I have yet to use the Zenith 3 in wet conditions getting into and out of the tent during a storm looks difficult.

Overall, this is a great tent for the money.
