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 2 person tent provides the combination of short packed length (30cm), low weight and weather-proof performance which makes it a popular choice with cycle tourers and bikepackers as well as backpackers and mountain marathon participants.

 

 
  • It’s designed for short to medium length cycling, bike packing and backpacking trips (a larger tent might be more comfortable for longer trips), mountain marathons. 
  • For 3 season use, the tried and tested low profile shape makes it suitable for wild camping as well as campsite stops. 
  • It’s even quicker to pitch than before thanks to the combined flysheet and inner pegging points. The flysheet and inner pitch together. 
  • The main pole is Superflex alloy and it packs down to 30cm long. The folding end poles are glassfibre. Pegs are alloy ‘v’ angle for a secure pitch. 
  • The flysheet and groundsheet are high performance polyester and fully seam sealed to keep out the wet. 
  • There are several venting options – the inner has a half midge-proof mesh door and there are additional mesh panels with covers as at each end. 
  • The tent has 2 doors to make access easier for both occupants. With one porch at the front of the tent plus a small amount of storage space under the flysheet at the rear. 
  • Reflective pole sleeve trims ensure better visibility in poor light or dark conditions.
  • It's easy to pack away when it's time to move on with a side opening tarp style tent bag - simply roll the tent into the bag and pull tight.

Once again, Wild Country have updated their successful 2020 Zephyros Compact 2 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. The two person version is fairly snug for two but it 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.
