ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 3-Person
Free-standing 3-person mesh tent
The Zephyr model is ideal for those hot, muggy nights when you want to feel a breeze in your tent. The walls are composed entirely of mesh, allowing maximum ventilation and fresh air. The unique 2 pole design gives you more head room to sit up, without feeling cramped. The Zephyr features aircraft alloy aluminum poles, which are strong and lightweight. There are two doors to make it easy to get in and out of the tent, and a vestibule over both doors for a great place to store your extra gear. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. Incredible ventilation, great head room, and lightweight... a great combination, creating a high quality tent!

Perfect for hot summer nights

Bought this tent in 2007 to take to Philmont. My tentmate grumbled about the all mesh, but with the fly on, we stayed comfortable. I began using the tent on Bike Across Kansas from 2010-2017. All mesh is great when the humidity is high and it is hot. One must use the fly for modesty's sake though. I had to waterproof it occasionally though and after such a long life a few issues arose: the grommets for the little cross brace at the top front failed (pulled out), rainwater would pool at the apex and drip into the tent and finally during a torrential thunderstorm one night the rain created a fine mist inside that soon got everything wet. I had to abandon it and go into the school to finish out the night. Even guyed out properly, the tent is susceptible to high winds (15-25 mph) with it's broad sides. Pitching it in the afternoons with high winds, I'd usually open both doors and let the wind blow across. I'm a big guy-6'4/260-and I appreciated the room inside for me and my gear. The vestibules are roomy as well.
