Great Starter Tent!

  • Reasonable weight


    Best Uses

    • kids
    • Light backpacking
    • Scouts

    Pros: 1. Extremely easy and intuitive to set up. (Way easier than the Zia 2, which is similar in weight and materials.) If you've ever set up a tent, you could set this one up in your sleep. 2. Two doors and two vestibules so you don't have to climb over each other to pee in the middle of the night and you each have gear storage. 3. I weighed it on the cat scale at work and it weighs 5lbs 4oz including everything (except a ground cloth.) This is reasonable for a two person backpacking tent. If you want ultralight you can pay $150-200 more. My ten year old son can split the weight of this tent with a friend for backpacking (he's done it with the Zia 2, which is similar in weight.) 4. Roomy enough for two "regular" sized adults; definitely more roomy than my 2-person ultralight. 5. Decent stakes (not flimsy wire ones.) 6. Factory sealed seams. (You may want to also use seam sealer, but I didn't with my Zia 2 and it didn't leak, so I'm not going to bother doing it with the Zilla 2, either.) 6. Nice, connected stake and pole bags, so nothing gets lost.

    Cons: 1. Does not come with footprint or gearloft. 2. Not suitable for people over 6 feet tall. 3. The material does not allow for a very taut pitch. However, this is also the case with the Zia 2, which I found held up fine in the rain. 4. Could use two extra stakes/lines at the ends to hold fly material away from the body and make the pitch more taut.

    My ten year old son bought this himself with money he's saved from birthday presents. He's used the Zia 2 and liked it but he wanted his very own tent. The Zilla 2 was less expensive and easier to set up and seems to be ideal for him.
