Zephyros tents represent excellent value for money and deliver a pretty lightweight shelter in an established design. This Compact version has an impressively small pack size making it ideal for backpacking, bikepacking and adventure racing alike.

Description  Features

The Zephyros Compact 1 solo tent provides a good combination of reliable performance with low weight and and great value.  It's an ideal lightweight tent for bike packers and cycle tourists who have previously struggled with the packed length of solo tents, and backpackers and mountain marathon participants looking for a more compact packed shape to carry.

 
  • Designed for: Occasional backpacking, short to medium duration backpacking and cycling trips (for longer trips you may prefer a larger tent), mountain marathons.
  • Suitable for: 3 season use, wild camping and campsite stays. 
  • The Zephyros Compact 1 tent pitches as one (the flysheet and inner pitch together) for speed and simplicity. 
  • 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. 
  • It uses Superflex alloy poles and tried and tested Wild Country, high performance flysheet and groundsheet fabrics

The latest update of the popular Wild Country Zephyros Tent sees an even further reduced pack size and a fabric of PU Polyester. The shorter pole sections have allowed the Compact version to come it at an impressive 30cm in 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. 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 fairly spacious and in emergency situations it certainly has enough space to fit a second person in, albeit in a fairly snug fit. As a top tip, if you are struggling to get the flysheet completely taut when pitching, try loosening off the cords that attach the inner to the fly at both ends and re-tighten.

The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. 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.
