terra nova wild country zephyros 2 two man tent review
In high winds on the evening of 3rd April 2012 in Horton in Ribblesdale in North Yorkshire I hurriedly put the tent up so it may not look as good as it could but it did serve as a more than adequate shelter for the night ahead.
The wind speeds got up to 40 to 50 mph during the night together with heavy snow and this tent, unlike others, stayed the pace.
Because of the downward pressure of the wind on the outer tent and the softness of the pitch the poles at either end where gradually pushed further and further into the ground as the night progressed. As the inner tent roof at both ends is attached to the top of these poles this also lowered itself towards me! Feet end not an issue, but head end became a little claustrophobic.
We put the two small poles up incorrectly! Both poles should have been located within the straps at either end that content the inner and outer tents together. This definately resolves the issue above!
Done systematically decamping was quick and easy with all elements going back into the carry bag with little effort even though it was still windy.
