The small pack size, low weight and great value make the Zypheros Compact a great tent for bikepackers, cycle tourers, mountain marathon beginner and hikers alike. A classic design that works really well in mixed, three season conditions.

Description  Features
The Zephyros Compact 1 tent for 1 person is a good combination of low weight and reliable performance.  The compact packed shape of just 30x18cm makes it an ideal lightweight tent for bike packing and cycle touring; fitting more easily into panniers and bags.  Also popular with mountain marathon participants. 
  • The tent has been updated for SS20 and is now even easier to pitch and to pack away and has bright yellow guylines for better visibility. 
  • This 1 person tent has been designed for occasional backpacking, short to medium duration backpacking and cycling trips (for longer trips you may prefer a larger tent) and mountain marathons. 
  • Suitable for 3 season use, wild camping and campsite trips. 
  • The Zephyros Compact 1 tent pitches as one (the flysheet and inner pitch together) for speed and simplicity, it’s even quicker to peg out with new combined flysheet and inner pegging points. 
  • A new side opening tarp style bag makes it easier to pack away when it’s time to move on – simply roll the tent into the bag and pull the drawcord tight. 
  • It's based on the tried and tested Terra Nova Laser Competition design. Its low profile shape helps with its stability in poor weather. 
  • The lightweight tent comes with a Superflex alloy main pole which folds down to 30cm long, and folding Superflex alloy end poles and alloy ‘v’ angle pegs for a secure pitch. 
  • The high performance polyester flysheet and groundsheet are fully seam sealed for waterproof protection and the inner has a door which is half midge-proof mesh with a small mesh panel at each end of the inner tent to help with ventilation. 
  • The guylines and pole sleeve trims are reflective for better visibility when you return to your tent in poor light or dark conditions.

Once again, Wild Country have updated their successful 2020 Zephyros Compact 1 Person Tent managing to cut more weight and making it more usable without sacrificing performance. The Compact versions have a reduced pack size and shorter pole sections that enable the tent to have an impressive 30cm length when packed. This allows the tent to be close in specification to Terra Nova Laser series, but at a more affordable price and without the need for the pole hood cover. The all-in-one pitching with the inner and fly attached make it ideal for the ever changing conditions in the UK.

This is a great value backpacking tent or entry level mountain marathon tent as it stands up to the elements really well through simple, functional materials and design. This one person version is a decent enough size in terms of internal and vestibule space and certainly serves a purpose and this enables it to keep the weight at a reasonably low level. Updates include a side opening tent bag that you can more easily roll the tent into and compress to save a lot of time and energy.

Some parcels may require a signature.

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
