User Review: ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 1.0
Price Paid: $70
I have only had this tent up once. I have another tent also.
The Zephyr 1 is a great deal. I am 5'11" and there is plenty of room to stretch out with some space left over at head or feet for extra gear. The vestibule is on the small side but has enough room for your boots and maybe a pack.
I like the design using a wedge shape. It gives you one tall end which makes it easier to enter and exit the tent, and it is plenty tall enough for me to change my clothes especially shirts without getting outside the tent. If you have a backrest type seat you should be content to read, eat, or whatever during adverse weather without feeling too cramped.
It's fairly lightweight, with a small pack size, seems pretty durable and would be nice without the rain fly during the early evening so you can stargaze. I liked the shape of it right off.
It is not my favorite tent but for solo packing it will be more than adequate and the cost is considerably inexpensive.
I paid $70 online a couple of years ago. I consider that to be a smoking deal.
