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!

Immediately I was impressed with the small size of the tent when in the compression sack. I set the tent up and weighed it in my home, everything was there and in working order. The tent is definitely cozy, I am 6' 2" and I pretty well fit the length of the tent. I have a 34" waist, and I'm not sure you would be able to fit two people with larger waists (such as two 36" waists) comfortably in this tent.
The weight of the tent was a little over 5 lbs as advertised. Some tents in the $300 price range that advertise a weight closer to 3lbs often do not include a bottom; this tent has a seamless bottom included, but it is thin. I would recommend buying a $5 tarp (6x8) or the floor saver found on Amazon for $20, factor these prices into the initial purchase price because they are important if you plan to use this tent on any unideal surface. If you are looking at this tent and considering such a cozy (cramped) space, make sure its because you actually need it!
A week later I backpacked up the north west approach to summit Pikes Peak. We camped out at 11,800 feet just above tree line. We had a nice spot to watch the summer Colorado afternoon rainstorm roll through. The tent was set up quickly because there are only two poles and a small brace that connects them at their parallel apex. The rainfly was staked in four places, and four more stakes for the bottom of the tent. There were more stakes included but I didn't find them necessary.
The rain-fly creates two small awnings (vestibules), one over each door, where you can store your backpack and shoes, as there isn't any room inside. The materials appear quality made. The exterior clips for the tent poles are a must have feature for me; I was able to accept the small parts where you have to feed the poles through the fabric. The rain came down really hard for about an hour (see the photo I added) and the tent did a great job deflecting the rain and keeping us dry. I felt fortunate to have such a heavy downpour to test the tent out in, and again, I think its the best tent you can get for the money.
If you ditch the compression bag and just pack the tent, rainfly, poles, and only bring eight stakes, you can get the tent weight under 5 lbs just fine. I think this tent would be a great option for single person use too. You could keep your bag inside, spread out maps or supplies, and shoes or other gear outside. I could go over many more details but I'll wrap this review up.
If you're looking for a legitimate backpacking tent that is closer to the $100 price range, check this tent out.
This is a great tent I can't wait to get back into!
The only negative things I have to say, and they are real petty, is that I would like to see the overhead gear net to be a little larger so the items on it don't fall off and bonk me on the head when the tent is flexing in the wind gusts and for the zippers to have a metal pull instead of the cords. Very minor things given the excellent performance of the tent.
I can foresee some type of failure over time if the elastic cord is the only retention on the studs. Other than this I like the tent seems roomy enough for a Moto camper plus gear.
