A one man tent with a bonus, the Zempire Atom hiking tent takes single pole construction one step further with the addition of a brow pole that forms more space for your noggin.
With plenty of space for one, the Atom has a vestibule large enough to cook under, and offers plenty of storage space for gear. A full mesh inner minimises weight yet maintains solid panels to minimise draft through the tent.
Incredibly stable with front and rear guy ropes and a durably waterproof floor, the Zempire Atom is a great all-rounder for solo explorers.
I recently used this tent in high wind and torrential rain on the week one July 2016 weekend and was very impressed how stable and water resistant this tent was especially for the price. Probably could have used an extra peg to pull the front guy rope in a slightly different angle to the vestibule. Fast setup and cross pole attached to colour coded pole assembly very helpful.
With every price of kit it depends what you want or need it to do. I bought the Atom as a 1 person overnighter for the Bibblumun Track. Light enough, appears well constructed, easy to pitch. I'm just over 6 foot and I can comfortably stretch out in it. Equally I can sit up in the morning and dress. The Vestibule is big enough for my 65ltr pack and boots. Only down side is it's a bit of a hands and knees crawl to get in it so in the wet = not so funny
Just came back from three days on the Cape to Cape in the SW of Western Australia walking from Margaret River to Augusta. Fine weather throughout and calm at night so not able to assess how it would cope in the wet or winds. However, a terrific amount of space, easy to set up, not too heavy. My only possible issue could be that an extra peg eyelet may be needed on the back of the fly as it only just sits off the main tent and in wind/rain it could make contact. Fantastic value for money!
Love the look of this little tent the quality is awesome and it is easy to setup I can not wait to get it out on the trail. I have made a video setting it up it can be viewed here. https://youtu.be/pqpfguiR-O8
I took this on my first long range hike - trekking the Ninety Mile Beach. It was easy to use, light, and everything is still intact. Can't complain at all. My only issue was with the packaging. It came in a box marked with 'packed' and 'minimum' weights about 0.5kg above the online specs. So I was a little angry thinking I'd been duped by the internet, until I got it home, weighed it, and confirmed the online figures were correct and the box was wrong.
Hey Steven, I was starting to get a bit worried there - the suspense haha. Thanks so much for leaving your review - great little spot there!
Very impressed. Better quality than my previous tent. Compact and easy to pitch plus roomy inside. Have not been out in cold/windy weather yet but so far consider the tent excellent value for money.
What is the internal length of the tent? I am concerned that at 188cm I wont be comfortable. Thanks
The only differences I see when comparing the specs of the Atom and Mono are vestibule size and height at peak. Are there any other major differences? And do they both pack away to the same size, or is the Mono model smaller when packed away?
