    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.

    The dog can sleep inside tonight

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    It's spacious, true to weight, well fabricated, and because it's so affordable you won't suffer from buyer's remorse should it get damaged or should you only happen to take it out a few times a year. It's an ideal addition to a bug-out bag, and it's nice to have the ability to free up pack space and shed some lbs. because you can nail your group's shelter needs with a +1 backpacking tent. (It's also easier to find a backcountry pitch-pad for a solo tent, so there is that.)

    Nice bathtub floor to keep you dry, and at 5'11" I have plenty of space to sit up and maneuvering around inside my Zephyr. The only drawback to this freestanding, nearly 100% mesh tent is the constant temptation to never put on the fly and sleep with a nearly unobstructed view of the Milky Way. No, truly, the only drawback I can imagine is this thing catching wind (with the fly on) due to its height and having the walls possibly push in on you during a nasty storm. That said, I haven't had a poor experience in this shelter yet, and the small cross pole at the entry of this asymmetrical tent (plus proper positioning of the tent) should help with stability if wind and rain become a problem in the middle of the night. The one and only vent in the fly is pretty tiny; just remember to adjust the door and vestibule to allow appropriate airflow and minimize condensation on the inside of the fly.

    The dog can sleep inside tonight

    Thanks, Lexi. That's P'nut, trail weight at 12 lbs. It's important to note that during the course of a night the A-shaped footprint of the Zephyr-1 leaves the discerning dachshund an opportunity to drool on both the right and left shoulder of the human occupant, if the dog so chooses. And, although this tent packs (impressively) smaller than a wiener dog, a lowrider blazing up a trail is sure to induce far more laughs and smiles among your companions than this shelter ever will and [the dog] is therefore an absolutely necessity to any and every adventure beyond the front door.

    Adventure, party of one!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    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!

    Hello, question please. Would this Tent be a good option for hiking the JMT? I am planning My JMT Hike for Sep. 2016. Thank you

    While you can use this tent (nothing wrong with it) it is a tad heavy for a one person tent. I've had this exact tent for a few years now and enjoy it for the space it provides.

    I'd personally opt for the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL1 to shave roughly 2 pounds of weight from the tent alone.

    what does it look like packaged up? how do you carry the pack or on the outside?

    Conventional wisdom leads people to pack tents in a roll -- a roughly cylindrical shape -- and that's what the stuff sack for this tent looks like.

    No need to follow that pattern though. Plenty of people stuff their tents and it doesn't have any seriously deleterious effects. The poles can't be stuffed obviously.

    In the wet, you'll want at least your tent body inside your pack or inside a waterproof bag. Many people carry tents on the outside of their packs in waterproof bags.

    I hope that helps!
