Lightweight and ready to camp.
The Alps Mountaineering Zephyr 1 Tent is lightweight for backpacking and comfortable for car camping from fall to spring. Alps Mountaineering built the walls out of no-see-um mesh for maximum ventilation and airflow, and the floor and fly out of a PU-coated polyester taffeta for abrasion- and water-resistance. One door and one vestibule give you plenty of space, and aluminum poles ensure a lot of head space as well as a quick and simple setup. There are mesh storage pockets inside the tent for smaller items like your keys and headlamps. Alps Mountaineering also added stakes, guy lines, and repair swatches for your convenience.

Love this tent. I got it because I do a lot of solo camping trips that require air travel and I wanted something small to fit in my luggage. This thing packs down pretty tiny and I can cram it into my suitcase no problem. I like it that it's a lightweight one-person, is free-standing, doesn't have the claustrophobic feel of a bivvy and is pretty cheap! I can sit straight up in it and when I lie down, I've probably got about 10" on either side of me to the walls. The only problem I've run into is that since it's tall and narrow, you've really gotta lash it down well if it's windy otherwise it'll take flight!
