    This tent is juuuust big enough for me to have comfortable wiggle room length wise (I’m 6’5) and has been the ideal 1 man tent. It’s light to carry, quick and easy to assemble (only 2 rods to play with), it holds warmth without an internal moisture buildup (which is important, if ya know ya know), and most importantly it will keep the rain out. Up till recently I had only used it for spring and fall fair weather trips. A couple 3-4 day backpacking goes when the weather was ideal. However this January my brother talked me into a 3 day backpacking adventure in the mountains of Virginia. The weather was TRASH the entire time and when we pitched that first night I was more than a little concerned. But it turns out this thing is a beast. The high winds and freezing rain on night 1 and slush on night 2 didn’t get through or phase it in the slightest. Of course for that kinda weather you will need a good sleeping bag and blanket for the low temps but the tent does exactly what you would hope for. I’d suggest this tent to any serious backpacker.

    I love this tent! I’ve spent about seven nights in it so far and I must say it’s fantastic. It’s spacious enough for a sleeping pad, bag, and myself (6’1). The atrium is great to put shoes and a backpack. The first three nights I spent in it were very rainy, but the inside of the tent stayed 95% dry. The ventilation seems okay, but I have yet to sleep in it on a really hot night.

    I chose this tent for many reasons, but the main reason is this is a screen tent with a rain fly. I like sleeping in deep backcountry and I love looking at the stars, on a clear night of course. I sleep in a hammock however I can’t set my hammock up on the beach. This tent is also very light, just over a pound. (under 1kg). I am using it for bicycle touring.Out of the box:This tent was nicely packed and rolled into it’s own bag. Pulling it out of the bag and unrolling it I see that I have a rain fly, poles, stakes and the tent. I inspected everything and found no drama here. (Everything was fine).Set up:This tent took me under 5 minutes to put up. After my general inspection I started connecting the poles. No instructions, but if you can’t assemble this tent then you should not have one. I slid the poles through the top, criss crossing, then I snapped the poles into place popping the tent right up. I did not use the stakes at this point, but I could literally pick up the tent with one hand and move it around easily.Inside:I am 5’11” and I was comfortable. You will need a tarp or something for the floor. The dew from the grassy area was cold and damp on the floor, not coming through, but if you owned a tent this is no different. The screen is very dense, almost like tint for the tent; enough for a light breeze.I did not apply the rain fly, however it looks super easy to set up. I am going out this next weekend to actually use it on the trails. I will update soon.@veganhippiedude

    Great like all of the other Alps tents of same construction and general design. (Netted inner layer, wind rain fly layer, nice compact yet effective stakes, built in thicker floor and awesome rods that magnetically sink into place masking 1 man assembly even easier)Compact but not too small inside. I could have got the side entry one cheaper but this one seems to be most minimal overall imprint space needed on ground and having doorway flap at my feet is what I prefer.Stayed dry inside through thick morning fog and mist. Netting layer is super fine and keeps out bugs and even repels a little water.This is another big bang for your buck tent from Alps.

    this tent has been perfect for me. not the highest quality materials but it has been on about 7 trips with me so far (many of which were in the rain) and has worked like a dream. The zipper pulls fall off but those are easily replaced and when it rains there is a little pool of water that forms in the triangular area on the top (I’ve mitigated this by using a small stick to prop up the area when it’s raining hard).I’ve camped on both rock, sand, and dirt padding with no tears in the flooring (i’m also very careful and most times i put a piece of tyvek down to protect the base)Great tent if youre looking for something inexpensive for quick overnights/long weekend.

    This tent is the best part of the hiking set. It is thin and small, yet it gives you room to sit up. I also love how it is free standing–very useful when sleeping on camping platforms.The rain fly works beautifully–I have slept through many rainy and foggy nights, not once having a drop of water in my tent. I can fit a couple of clothes and my hiking boots inside the tent (comfortably). Putting my Deuter 50+10 inside, however, did make things a tad more cramped (I leave it outside with the Deuter rain cover–it works very well). I also suggest buying the Zephyr 1 floor saver, it is comforting to have that extra layer when camping on wet and uneven terrain. The floor saver does not extend beyond the tent floor; it fits exactly. This product is the prefect balance between roominess, comfort, compactness, and lightness. It is truly meant for all types of hikers!

    So pleased with this purchase! Let me start with what I was looking for and hoped to find in my tent: * one person * three season * mostly mesh inner tent to allow stargazing * lightweight for backpackingThis tent met those criteria, and has performed perfectly on a number of excursions. My very first outing (shown in the two pictures) was over three days when it rained about 70% of the time. Me and my gear stayed perfectly dry the entire time. Note that I did purchase the matching footprint, and I would strongly suggest that anyone buying this tent do the same.There is a small pocket up front that I use to hold my powerbrick, phone and headlamp. Two sets of ties at the top allow you to hang a lantern if you wish, but I think you’ll find yourself smacking your head on it unless it’s a very small unit. Setup is always very quick — the shock-corded poles go together smoothly and if you treat them well should last indefinitely.The price is one half to one third of what other one person tents go for, and it delivers equivalent functionality and quality. I would highly recommend this tent to any friend who was in the market for something meeting these specifications.

    Great tent! Lightweight, breathable, and small yet still roomy for 1.Be sure you buy the footprint so you don’t mess up the bottom of the tent! (I already put a tiny hole in mine)Found here: http://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountaineering-Zephyr-Floor-Saver/dp/B003GXUYOA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1397933753&sr=8-5&keywords=alps+mountaineering+footprintThis tent has been on 3 camping trips (total of 7 nights) with me here in Texas in the winter. It has survived 20 mph winds, heavy downpours, temps down to 34 F, and a raccoon getting into it and steeling my cookies (yes seriously). It fits at the bottom of my hiking backpack and fits me and my pack at night. Lightweight fabric and aluminum poles. The fly has a small window in the center of the A and a vent flap in the back. You need the right sleeping bag for the cold nights but this tent breathes well and I’m sure it will be great for hot summer nights. I love it!

    This is a great tent. I was hesitant at first to purchase because rumors of condensation problems but do not have regrets now. I used this tent on my Colorado trail through hike and it worked great. Most people on the trail had quite a bit more moisture on their tents in the morning then I did. I would simply open the top draft flap and tie out the side guy lines as far as they could go. Most nights I would close the vestibul. The nights I left it open, I received no condensation on the tent. It rained on me almost everyday for five weeks and I didn’t spring a leak at all. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but the material is thicker than most tents and seems like I will get many more years out of it. Only complaint is that rain collects at the top triangle of the rain fly. I merely push this up when I collects. This tent is worth the price. Spend 200 more dollars to only save a pound? Yeah, I’ll save weight elsewhere.

    This is a very nice tent, it’s very roomy for a one person test as well as being very light. The vestibule is big enough to store you backpack and shoes and while I haven’t had it rain on me, the seals and stitching do seem tight, with a standard seam sealer they should not leak any time soon. The way this tent is configured it does give ample head room as well when sitting up, I would generally rub my head against the highest point of my previous tent, it’s actually nice to have the sense of the extra room. The only downside, and it’s very minor, is the storage bag the tent came in. It has a large plastic sheet on the outside of the bag where the instructions and other information was stored. This did make it a bit difficult to fold down for storage in my pack when the poles were removed. However on the plus side that bag is quite large and can also store a footprint or tarp along with the tent if its folded to maximize space.
