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 2 person tent offers a great combination of short packed length, low weight and weather-proof performance making it an ideal choice for cycle tourers and bike packers as well as backpackers and mountain marathon participants looking for a versatile lightweight tent to carry. 
  • Designed for: Short to medium length cycling, bikepacking and backpacking trips (you may prefer a larger tent for longer trips), mountain marathons. 
  • Suitable for: 3 season use, wild camping as well as campsite stops.
  • The Zephyros Compact 2 pitches as one (the flysheet and inner pitch together) for quick pitching time. 
  • The tent has a tried and tested low profile shape, based on the popular Terra Nova Laser Competition 2 design, which helps its stability. 
  • 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 high performance polyester flysheet and groundsheet are fully seam sealed for waterproof protection. 
  • The inner has a half midge-proof mesh door and at each end a mesh panel with cover, to help with ventilation.
  • A second door at the back of the tent makes it easier for both occupants to get in and out. There’s one porch at the front of the tent plus a small amount of storage space under the flysheet at the rear. 
  • Reflective guylines and pole sleeve trims ensure better visibility in poor light or dark conditions.

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.

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. 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.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

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.
