ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season -
If you spend a big chunk of your spring, summer, and fall nights in the backcountry, you’ll want a reliable, roomy shelter like the ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 2 Tent. With its sealed seams and urethane-coated fly and floor, this lightweight three-season tent keeps you and your campmate dry in March moisture and during those fast-melting September snowfalls. The Zephyr 2 sets up quickly—two alloy aluminum poles and a simple clip system take it easy on your bed-ready brain. Mesh walls provide essential ventilation when your tent buddy has a sweaty dream. ALPS Mountaineering designed the fly to buckle securely to the tent and included stakes and guys for stability during heinous storms. Stash your mud-caked boots and soggy rain gear in the large vestibule and your book and headlamp in the mesh storage pocket before you sink into REM state.

Positive Reviews:

This tent is great. Very easy and quick to setup. I added a piece of ribbon to the corners of the wider side to make it easier to match up the rain fly. When setup, my girlfriend and I are able to sleep comfortably. I'm 5'6, 140, and we still had some space at the bottom of our feet; maybe 1 pack could fit there. When we both laid on our backs, we had enough shoulder room to sleep comfortably. Also able to sit up straight with a bit of head room. The two vestibules are a big plus to store our packs and keep firewood dry.
This would be a perfect tent for a solo trip with gear. Keep everything in the tent and have no worries.
The weather conditions were sunny and there was barely any wind so it didn't get tested in that sense but the aluminum poles are sturdy. I am curious about the collection of water at the flat spot on the top but hopefully it doesn't cause any problems. Living in Hawaii with salt in the air, I'm curious to see if the poles will rust. I don't want to have to wash them after every use but update if they do.
I'm planning to make a foot print bigger than the size of the tent but smaller than the vestibule to help keep our packs out of unnecessary dirt/mud.

I chose this tent because it met all the criteria I was looking for in a backpacking tent. First, It's affordable. (Seriously, this thing is even on SAC right now for a screaming deal) Comparable tents are going for $200+. Second I wanted something light and small with aluminum poles. There are lighter and smaller tents, but 8 ounces here or an inch there doesn't make a guy like me fret. Third, I wanted a tent that was fully mesh so that on clear summer nights I could leave off the fly and enjoy the view of the stars. Finally, I like the extra space of a 2 man tent. I prefer keeping my pack inside with me, and the extra room gives me space for the optional girlfriends.

Really happy with the Zephyr 2. My other tent is a four-man Big Agnes and I would say that the quality is comparable between the two, though the Alps Mountaineering tents are much less expensive. I'm honestly quite impressed with the bang for buck here. Wanted something light enough to pack & carry myself but big enough for me and my 5 year old son, and this fit the bill. It fits easily into my large daypack (32L). The mesh design makes it most useful in fairly mild temperatures. Setup is easy and the fly offers decent vestibule space given the size of the tent. All in all I give the Zephyr 2 a big thumbs up. Grab 'em on SAC and feel good about buying smart.

This tent is sweet. The rain fly works good to but it will let a little bit of water in if theres a storm which is no big deal. It is also kind of small for 2 people so i would recommend getting a 3 person tent if there are gonna be 2 people on the trip but if it is just you then you will have plenty of room. I think the design is pretty cool looking to. Other then that this tent works well and i definitely recommend it

This tent is GREAT! It goes together extremely easily, is very waterproof, and is just a great tent. It is really light and compact for what it is. It even has a clear window in the rain fly which it doesn't say anything about in the description. Nice and roomy for me and another person. Also if u haven't ordered anything from this site, they r AWESOME. They shipped super fast!, and they aren't gana screw you. bottom line is, Great tent, and Backcountry is the bomb.

I've used this tent on three different trips now and I haven't experienced a single reason not to like it. It is very sleek and extremely easy to set up. It stood up to high winds near Sun Lakes in WA. The completely mesh body makes sure you can breathe at all times and makes it nice for looking at the stars during those hot summer nights. I am a big fan of the ALPS brand and this tent represents their name well. Highly recommended.

Great value. The tent is extremely easy to assemble and just as easy to pack. It packs up small, yet provides plenty of room for two. The fly attaches nice and tight so there is no flapping in the wind. It also has ample vestibule space for all of your gear. It comes with plenty of stakes and even some spare material in case you have to make a repair. For just over $100, you can't go wrong with this tent.

The Zephyr 2 is very useful for trips where you don't care if your tent gets torn up. The price is great, and it's a solid tent. It's mainly a great 2 person summer tent.

Negative Reviews:

I really want to like this tent. The size, weight, and features (and price, since I found it on S&C) were exactly what I was looking for: 2 doors, 2 vestibule, 2 person, sub 5lbs, fly/footprint option.
The shape makes the tent a little tricky to set-up the first time but once you get the hang of it its fine.
The design is also why there's a big flaw with the tent: when setting up the tent there's a flat triangular area at the top of the rain fly (the orange triangle in Tyler Miller's picture may be the easiest place to see this). Since this area is flat, when it rains water will collect and pool here. Since water is sitting and pooling in one spot it will seep through the fly and drip into the tent. In my case it dripped *directly* onto my face, which is not the most pleasant way to wake up in the middle of the night....I woke up several times in the middle of the night because of the dripping. Each time I woke up I would push up on the giant puddle above my head, getting it to drain off.
Bottom line: look for more of a dome. They're classic for a reason.
