User Review: Eureka! Zeus 2 Classic
Design: three and a half season tent
Ease of Setup: foolproof
Weight: 1,8 kg
The Zeus 2 is my first lightweight backpacking tent. Up to now i have used my 30 year old Helsport tent but retired it this spring.
I have used the Zeus in the woods and up in the Norwegian mountains far above the treeline. The weather can be quite nasty up in them mountains even in the summer time, but this little tent will stand its ground. It is very sturdy and you feel kind of safe in it even when the wind get really bad.So far it has been waterproof too.
Setup is quicker than any other tent i have tried, takedown and stuffing it in its sack take about 2min. It looks small from the outside but is surprisingly roomy once you get inside it.
Condensation has never been a problem, not even in the woods where the wind lose its power. Put the vestibule up against the wind (draft) and stake the vents all out and you will be fine.
Compared to other tents i have carried this one weighs next to nothing, about 1.8kg and take up little space in your pack. The only thing i miss in this tent is a larger vestibule,but i guess you cant have it all.
I am buying another one just like it in a few days to keep as a backup just in case. For the price it's hard to beat this one.
